I’m loving the mix on this month’s playlist which features some of my favorite vocalists like David Nail and Harry Connick Jr. (Did you see my Instagram post of him singing my favorite hymn at the Ryman?) I also heard him sing, “One Fine Thing” for the first time and I’m obsessed. Add it to the list of some of my favorite love songs.

I also love Betty Who’s fresh take on “I Love You Always Forever.” This playlist also features a lot of up and coming Nashville artists – Drake White, Old Dominion, Maren Morris, Clare Dunn, and Kelleigh Bannen. Such good stuff!

Speaking of Kelleigh Bannen, scroll down to check out some of these stunning images of her (and some fun BTS) Cameron Powell shot just last week! Wardrobe by one of my favorites Taylor Colson Horton, hair and makeup by moi. My two favorite tracks from her new project “Landlocked” are in the playlist below, but let’s be honest, the entire EP has been on repeat on my patio.

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetI have been on the hunt for a shorts suit for 4 years – one of my besties, Jessica, wore a metallic copper jumpsuit with a huge statement necklace to an event at Miss USA and I’ve been on the hunt for my own ever since. Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

I recently tried some suits on at Intermix and Nordstrom – both striped, which I usually love, but the bold stripe on both the jacket and shorts were just tooooo much, even for me. Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

When I saw this gorgeous number at Billy Reid it was literally love at first sight. I can think of about 20 ways I want to style these pieces together and separately almost all year long. (Crisp white button up, band tshirt, chambray top, etc…)Billy Reid Unlined Iman Jacket Lanel Short

I wanted to keep my look pretty simple last night, so I styled it with low key accessories, my favorite being the most beautiful and delicate necklace from DolceAve Jewelry. Fun fact, this necklace has also been worn by Kourtney Kardashian. I love how this piece is uber delicate, but also makes a statement at the same time. I also love anything that has a “B” or my initials. (Remember my monogrammed leather Fashionable clutch from earlier this week?) I always think personalized pieces make great gifts too!DolceAve Jewelry Necklace

Nashville Fashion Week
Last night kicked off the first night of Nashville Fashion Week. I had such a great time attending the show and interviewing each designer – Nashville Fashion Week always kills it with the designers they bring in as well as the local artists they feature. It’s a week of first class shows and events. If you weren’t at the shows last night, you’re in luck, there’s more where that came from – get your tickets here!

Live Fashionable Clutch

It was love at first sight for me with this fun fringe romper which also comes in black. I had three hook and eye’s added to it to close the plunge a little bit, but if you can rock it, I say go for it.Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

I’m also obsessed with my clutch from Fashionable which they will now personalize for you with your initials. Love. I also think this is my favorite leather color ever – it looks great with everything.Live Fashionable Clutch Personalized MonogrammedProcessed with VSCO with f2 presetProcessed with VSCO with f2 preset

This week’s pictures were taken by my mom at my childhood home in Wyoming. I’m home for one of my best friend, Tammy’s, wedding this weekend in the Black Hills and I’m getting a little quality time in with my family while I’m at it. These pictures are extra special because my parents are in the process of moving out of the house right now – cue the tears. They brought me home from the hospital as a newborn to this house and I lived here until I went to college and even moved home for two summers thereafter. Do y’all get as attached to homes as I do? I’m as sentimental as it gets and I cried my eyes out when I moved out of the home I’d lived in for 7 years in Nashville last fall.  So many memories are attached to every square inch – but I will say, I’ve had so much fun finding lots of hilarious pictures and notes from my childhood in my old bedroom. I’m still close friends with a lot of people I went to elementary, junior high, and high school with and I have lots of embarrassing mementos of all of us – blackmail at the ready! ANYWAYS let’s get to the fashion before I tear up. Continue reading
