When one of your best friends works at Free People, you take advantage of it. One Friday afternoon I forced my friend Bella into a photo shoot. She works at the Free People at Lenox Mall in Atlanta, therefore she has plenty of great clothes to choose from. Downtown Athens provides the perfect backdrop to any photoshoot.

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit my best friend over fall break. Rachel attends the University of Miami, so the options of what to do were endless. After going to classes with her that day we ventured to Wynwood, a really neat art district in Miami. The entire area is covered in art, but one place in particular caught my attention, The Wynwood Walls. Rachel had told me about this place and how it is the go to spot for instagram pictures or new cover photos, so obviously I needed to check this out. The walls did not disappoint, I was incredibly impressed with how these walls were brought to life by the different artists' works - they were able to execute such beautiful art at such a large scale. I recommend taking the time to check out the website and read about the different artists, but be careful because it's easy to get lost on the site for a few hours. If you are ever in Miami pay a visit to Wynwood, other than the awesome walls, there are plenty of great shops and restaurants as well.

October is a weird time for weather in Georgia. One day its in the fifties, the next it is in the high seventies. This can present a difficult challenge when transitioning into your fall wardrobe. Therefore this is the prime time to wear your sleeveless turtlenecks, cause I know you've all got one hidden away in your closet.

If we are being honest, I truly think I bought this sweater as some sort of sartorial challenge for myself. It is such a great knit and color, that I could not resist, but in reality it is hard to style something that keeps your neck real toasty, but your arms are freezing

For my first attempt at wearing this sweater I decided to keep it simple, just some good old jeans and boots.

I paired it with this Free People necklace.

Athens is known for its music scene, many musicians and bands got their start here and new and upcoming acts are always performing around town. The band R.E.M. started in Athens and there are a few landmarks that still stand solely becuase they were part of album artwork. For these photos I ventured to the train trestle featured on the back of R.E.M.'s album, Murmur.

I love getting to explore the rich culture of Athens. When people ask why I did not go away for school I tell them it is because there is still so much of Athens for me to explore, experience, and learn about.

Hopefully this sleeveless sweater will make more appearances in my Athens adventures. I'm going to challenge myself to wear it four different ways, let me know if you have any ideas.
