As soon as I saw Lauren wearing this new neon pink maxi with my all time fave white, cross-body drawstring bag, I knew immediately where I wanted to document this look -- at a nearby, now defunct church with bright blue metal grates covering the entrance. There's something so deliciously 80s about this color combo that I couldn't resist.
Outfit documentation complete, Lauren took me to a brand new spot called St. Mazie that actually opened up just a short skip away from my old apartment. As soon as I walked inside I fell in love. With low, mint green tin ceilings, old-school metal fans, boat lights accenting the walls and French wicker tables from the 20s, I had found my soul-style manifest. Seriously, I could live in this place. And the best part is the maze of a hallway that leads to a secret garden-esque backyard. Sadly, Lauren and I were forced back inside as dusk was falling and we are both popular dinner items for mosquitoes, but I look forward to making a return trip there when cooler temps are back in season.
