CMA Awards Pretaping 11/2/15

bauble barToday kicked off the first day of CMA Awards pre-taping. I am co-hosting the live red carpet show on abc.com again this year (Starts at 5 PM/C – I would love for you to tune in!) and Monday and Tuesday are full of taping segments, rehearsing, etc.

Interviewing country music newcomer and sweetheart Michael Ray. It's his first year at the CMA Awards, but he's already had a #1 hit "Kiss You In The Morning." His newest single "Real Men Love Jesus" is beauuuuuutiful.

Speaking of beautiful, my facial expression in this photo is the opposite of that. OH WELL.

CMA Awards 2015 fashionIt’s always fun putting together wardrobe for these types of things, but they have to be looks that look great in person and on camera which means a lot of solid colors and tailored styles.CMA Awards Fashion

Today’s look is one I’ll wear over and over again together and as separates. I got my skirt and top from a FAB new boutique in Hillsboro Village, Revv. Edgy styles that look great at seriously affordable prices. I met with store owner Laci Bonner, who is so cool – she’s a 20-something who came to Nashville for a fun New Year’s trip at the beginning of this year. She fell in love with Music City and instantly made the decision to get a place and started making plans to open a store here. (She already has a successful boutique back in Arkansas.) The store is everything she described to me before it opened and more. Fab fab pieces at fab fab prices. Check them out if you haven’t already.Guilhermina Boots

I’m also pretty jazzed about my accessories. These over-the-knee boots are by Guilhermina, a Brazilian luxury footwear brand newly available in the US at www.classy-avenue.com. They are made from beautiful pony hair and neoprene and seriously one of the most stylish and comfortable styles I own. So so obsessed. I’ll also be wearing their footwear with my gown during the awards.

All of my baubles today are from BaubleBar, one of my favorite places for trendy and affordable jewelry. I’m such a ring girl – I know I’ll be wearing these pieces over and over again. I’m also loving this year’s tassel trend and these black and grey statement earrings will add a fun pop to so much of my winter wardrobe.Bauble Bar Nolita Earring Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset
