Can you feel it? Fall is in the air! And with the season comes warm flavors in our food, fashion, and the desire to get outside and enjoy the cooler weather. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite fall looks and the beautiful views from one of my favorite Atlanta rooftop venues.
For Atlantans looking to plan an al fresco dinner or event high above the city skyline, The Roof at Ponce City Market is a must see! Whether vintage-inspired cocktails at RFD Social or good grub and fun games at Skyline Park, any kind of entertainment that comes with this kind of a view is exactly my style, no matter the season.
At RFD Social, I love sipping on creative cocktails inside an intimate setting against the backdrop of Atlanta’s sparkling night lights. The design is a nod to a glamorous decade, dotted with old-fashioned radios, leather banquettes, reclaimed chandeliers and 1920’s photography. Have a seat at the grand 77-seat bar, or relax in the lounge and play billiards, cards, games or tabletop shuffleboard. It’s the ultimate blend of chic and cool.
Blending patterns and playing up fun details in your wardrobe is my idea of looking as cool as the scenery, so I’m pulling out animal print details, classic plaids, pops of berry-infused hues and plenty of lace in just the right doses. My tip for wearing plaid – don’t let an old fashioned tradition look dated. Add updated versions to your basic outfits, like an asymmetrical coat to blend the functionalities of a statement piece and practical outerwear.
The bigger picture atop Ponce City Market includes Skyline Park – arguably the best view of the city – which offers unique, retro entertainment that city goers love. Both kids and adults can play basketball, ring toss, challenge each other in a derby race, play mini golf, climb Heege tower and more. It is open until 10pm or 11pm most nights and surrounded by yummy food and beverage options, making it the perfect addition to date night, family night or a fun friends night out.
A perfect little fall dress is the perfect addition to a night out here – and when you need easy, breathable movement in an outfit that still makes a statement, a maxi can’t be beat. Everyone has a favorite go-to dress that solves the dilemma of not having anything to wear, and in a deep, rich hue this great, cool weather dress is essential to getting ready – and looking stylish – at a moment’s notice. A maxi dress is also ideal for layering to attain different looks when the weather isn’t a sure thing.
These are just a few of my favorite things to wear in the fall, but what I love about fashion these days is that most anything goes, as long as you’re wearing it with confidence. So my question is, what are you excited about wearing this season? I’d love to hear about it!
