Womanista Summer Table

Womanista Entertaining: A Summer Table

I  L-O-V-E to entertain. Sharing a meal & a great glass of wine with friends in the comfort of your own home is absolute heaven to me. And I always skew on the side of a little bit fancy (you can never go wrong with a splash of glam!) – so last week my husband […]

Womanista CALI Cool

Womanista Fashion: California Cool

I recently spent a few days in sunny Southern California – it’s so gorgeous there and easy to get inspired by the “casual cool” style on the coast. I wore this outfit to do a little wine tasting at Rosenthal in Malibu followed by dinner at Geoffrey’s with my husband (this chic restaurant feels like […]

Womanista CMT Glam

My Look: CMT Awards Fashion & Glam

Last night I went to one of the most FUN parties of the year: The CMT Awards! We had such an awesome night, and Lady Antebellum performed their new song “Bartender” to a rockin’ outdoor crowd! So now for the fun fashion deets…I wore one of my favorite designers, Cushnie et Ochs. Their designs just fit […]

Womanista Palm Trees Glam

Womanista Fashion: Palm trees + Summer Glam

Y’all. I spotted this palm-tree print maxi dress and IMMEDIATELY fell.in.love. It’s fun, easy to wear, versatile, and CUUUTE – the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe (and it comes in other fun colors!) It’s equally at home at your fave apres-beach drink locale, sunday brunch, date night, or even a red carpet (truth be […]

Womanista Florals

Womanista Fashion: Florals + Silk

I absolutely love prints. And this pretty pair of floral pants caught my eye the second that I spotted them – the only caveat? Would the relaxed “pajama” look be cute on me, and could I really pull that off! As I tried them on in the Nordstrom dressing room, VOILA! Actually Cute! And so […]

Blackberry Farms

Womanista Travel: Blackberry Farm

Editor’s Note: Let me preface this post by saying this – Blackberry Farm comes with a lot of hype. It is routinely heralded with top travel awards and earns the kind of praise (year after year!) reserved only for 5+ star establishments. I consider myself pretty well-traveled and I’ve gotten to stay in some dynamite […]

Womanista Fashion: Best Beach Totes

I don’t know about you, womanistas, but this winter weather is just about getting on my last nerve. I’ve been dreaming of lounging in some sunshine on a sandy beach with a frosty cocktail lately! With spring break just around the corner, I thought I would warm us all up with a little beach dreamin’ […]

Womanista Fashion: The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

So last night I hung out with a bunch of models in their underwear…at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! It.Was.Fabulous. The VS team creates such a fun production that it’s like being at a concert, a fashion show, and some sort of cool broadway show all at the same time. The runway is made of […]

Womanista Decor: Decorating a New “Womanista” Home

About a year and a half ago, my husband and I purchased our dream home in Nashville – We only looked at it once before making an offer, and I knew immediately that I wanted it to be ours. The property is what sold me almost immediately. We have sweeping magnolias, an elegant pool, and […]

Womanista Travel: Le Sirenuse & Positano, Italy

Womanista has been on a bit of a summer vacation (I’ve tried my best to enjoy the first summer in a LOOOONG time that my husband hasn’t been touring! Well, it’s the first summer he hasn’t been touring since I’ve known him, so there’s that…) so I packed up the computer and lived life a […]

KaseyMusgraves

Womanista Beauty: Kacey Musgraves “On The Road” Glam

Every once in a while a singer – an artist – comes along that is so fresh and so talented that it seems like they are on a sparkling, supersonic rocket ship to stardom. Kacey Musgraves is having that sparkling, supersonic, rocket ship moment. And womanistas, she sure is talented & deserving of the glowing […]

RolfAndDaughters

Womanista Food + Drink: Rolf & Daughters

As a native Nashvillian, I can’t say enough how EXCITED I am for the new influx of great restaurants descending upon our town.  Our city is undoubtedly in the spotlight, with everyone from Hollywood, to The New York Times, to Conde Nast Traveler taking notice. Nashville is hot right now. And perhaps one of the […]

Womanista Travel: Cocktails in Sydney

Hello my womanistas! I have just returned from the magical country of Australia (and sigh, I’m still feeling the brutal jet lag…but it was well worth it!) My last stop in Oz was in Sydney – which is gorgeous, and beachy, and cosmopolitan at the same time. Kinda like a cool mix of San Francisco […]

Womanista Fashion: The Orange Cocktail Dress

Summer is a time when you can really let your inner fashion star shine! You can express yourself with color, accessorize to the max, and show a little more skin than usual. One of my favorite ways to have fun with fashion this summer is with the uber-glam, statement-worthy orange cocktail dress! I am obsessed […]

Womanista Food + Drink: AFROHEAD Rum Cocktail

Afrodite Rum Cocktail with AFROHEAD rum

I was first introduced to a delicious caribbean rum that would become AFROHEAD in July 2009. As my new husband and I lingered over an incredible meal at The Landing restaurant on Harbour Island and basked in the glow of our newlywed bliss, we sipped some of the “house” rum and laughed all night. This […]

Womanista Spotlight: White’s Mercantile

4|7|15-111

White’s Mercantile is one of my favorite shops in Nashville. Set in an old, remodeled service station it’s part general store, part chic boutique, part luxe gift bazaar, and 100% awesome.  When my friend Holly (who also owns another one of my favorite boutiques, H. Audrey) decided to open White’s and explained the concept to me, […]

Womanista Fashion: Floaty + Floral

4|7|15-8

To me, dressing for spring should be effortless & easy. The days are long, the air is warm & not yet thick with summer heat, and everything is in bloom. Which is why I’m drawn to florals & easy fabrics during the spring season. I picked up this floaty top with geometric & floral prints […]
