I absolutely LOVE Australia and can’t wait to get back. This will be my third trip over there and I feel like I know the vibe of the major cities pretty well at this point – so I can bypass the touristy stuff and explore some of the locals fave spots! Oh and did I […]

IMG_1163

In case you haven’t heard, Nashville has been a little under the weather. Some serious ice blanketed our fine city this week and temps have been absolutely frigid. [Editor's Note: Yes, Boston, I know that y'all have it WAY worse and I'm not entirely complaining, just sort of complaining.] But after being cooped up inside […]

Womanista Love: Valentine’s Day Essentials

ValentinesEssentials

I love Valentine’s Day (yes, it’s a cheesy commercialized “holiday”) but it’s still a fun opportunity to remind your love (or your best girls) that you are connected & thankful for them. And for those of you celebrating with your girls, I heard the term “Gal-entine’s Day” the other day – obsessed! Here are a […]

Womanista Fashion: Marsala + Feathers

BF_66955

When I was in LA recently I popped into Top Shop and immediately spotted this fabulous, feathery, marsala sweater (and I obvi had to get it because, HELLO! Marsala is the color of 2015. Or at least that’s how I rationalized it, ha.) This look is fun for a winter date night look. The sweater […]

Womanista Fashion: Winter Date Night

I love winter date nights because it usually means we are cozy by a fire somewhere with a hearty meal & a glass of wine. My husband and I had recent date nights at Moto in Nashville and The Little Door in Los Angeles - both fit that description pretty perfectly! (Get the Garganelli Pasta at […]

Womanista Fashion: Shades of Grey

Cassie & Cathy 1

I first met Cathy Williamson when her kids and I were in school together (YES! This gorge lady has kids that are my age which is just simply ridiculous because she doesn’t look a day over 25…) Fast forward a few years down the road and we’ve become friends. You know those people who are […]

I don’t know about y’all, but the men in my life (especially my husband) are IMPOSSIBLE to shop for. I mean, really. I actually start jotting down Christmas gift ideas for my husband about 6 months before the holiday just so I’m not completely clueless during the shopping season. So if y’all are anything like me, […]

Womanista Fashion: Lumberjack Date Night

11|4|14-62

Y’all, this coat. I am obsessed. The large plaid gives it a total weekender vibe and the fur collar adds a pop of glam (ANNND since it’s currently 19 degrees in Nashville, this coat is getting a lot of rotation!) I paired it with a swingy leather skirt, opaque black tights, a casual white tank, sky […]
