We in the South have a very strong relationship with our "soda". In my home any carbonated beverage is generally referenced as a Coke. Instead of saying, "would you like a soda/pop/cola", you'd get, "would you like a Coke". But Pepsi is as proudly a Southern institution as Atlanta's Coca Cola, having made its world debut in New Bern, NC. This gorgeous handpainted sign is covering the side of what used to be a community gro, and will soon be a gourmet-type stop-in and cafe in Raleigh's historic Oakwood neighborhood. In keeping with the theme of Southern institutions, I am sporting my very well-loved J Brand jorts. The idea of combining them with some other classic and timeless wardrobe staples keeps them relevant. I love this military-inspired Rag & Bone jacket, that gives shades of Barbour with more of a Summer weight. The classic, lightweight ALC striped tank is perfect for this heat, and these INSANE Chloe booties are the PERFECT bootie to transition back into Fall. But most importantly: are you a Coke or Pepsi gal?
