A few weeks ago at Create & Cultivate, we kicked off our weekend with a cocktail hour at the mall.  This was a great opportunity to meet other individuals who were going to the event and was a fun way to get together.  The cocktail hour was right out side of Neiman Marcus (yes I wanted to shop), and open to all of the conference attendees.  We sipped, mingled and shopped until our hearts were content and it was a great time!

Top | Skirt | Boots | Bag

Because the weather had been so warm in Louisiana, I knew I wanted to wear my over-the-knee boots to the cocktail hour.  The weather in Atlanta was perfect for my boot and mini skirt combo!  I love this Alice and Olivia mini skirt and obviously have a deep love for these boots so they were perfect for each other!  While shopping before the cocktail hour (yes, we were at the mall twice), I picked up this lace top at ZARA.  I thought it would be perfect for upcoming holiday functions as well, so if I had to guess, this outfit will be on repeat!
