NYE Fashion

The time has come to start thinking about your New Year’s Eve outfit (if you haven’t already!) I recently teamed up with Free People, Country Music is Love, and my photographer Kara McLeland to write a style, shoot, and write a piece on that very subject. Check out our full story and photographs here! I wanted to do my own little piece here to talk more in depth about all the specific pieces I wore for the shoot.

But first – my inspirations:

Kate Hudson as Penny Lane in Almost Famous

Jenny in Forrest Gump (minus the heroin)

I have had so much fun doing numerous collaborations with one of my favorite sites, Country Music is Love. This week we had a blast partnering with them and Off Broadway Shoes on Country Music Festival footwear trends! Head on over there to see how we styled several different day and night time looks. Happy CMA Festing – it starts today and if you’re in town head down to the Riverfront Stage to say hi! I’ll be there ever day with the CMA doing interviews and giveaways! (Wearing some of these fun styles every single day!)

Hey Kids! If you live in Nashville, be sure to get your tickets to the Country Music Is Love Concert benefiting City of Hope. I am co-hosting this year with Kelly Sutton (you may remember her from the CMA 360 show I did in November!)
11465_unnamed copyThe show is usually sold out, so get your tickets here fast! I hosted the show last year and I can honestly say that it is my favorite benefit concert and the lineup continues to get better and better! Some of my favorite artists are performing this year, so excited… see you there?!

I was so excited when one of my favorite country music sites, Country Music Is Love, asked me to do a guest post on fashion for them! It’s up now here! Be sure to check it out – here’s a little preview of one of my favorite looks!
