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 […]

GiftsForTheGuyWhoHasEverything_2

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 […]

Womanista Fashion: The Denim Jacket

_F_68347

I love Los Angeles, and there is something so cool about the breezy fashion in that city. People dress so chic, but remarkably comfortable! It’s like everyone decided that they all want to look good without trying too hard, ha (my kind of people!) So it’s the perfect environment to wear a denim jacket. I […]

Womanista Fashion: The Weekender

Weekender 1

I love a casual-cool weekend wardrobe, especially when it involves a soft flannel shirt, a cool jacket, and messy hair! I picked up this Current/Elliott cropped denim jacket from Haven a few years ago and I’ve worn the HECK out of it. It’s such an easy piece to throw on over anything, really…and it immediately adds […]

womanista-68

This evening look is probably one of my faves ever for two reasons: 1) I’ve never met an embellishment or an animal print that I didn’t like and 2) these slouchy pants basically feel like pajamas that are dressed up for evening (genius!) But seriously. THEY ARE SO CUTE AND COMFORTABLE! And wearable. Did I […]

Womanista Fashion: Cozy Layers

womanista-23

I absolutely love to layer my look during the fall season. This look mixes lots of pattern & texture, but each piece is rooted in the same color palette so it works. Plus, you are always prepared for a temperature change when you rock a few layers! It’s a fun, cozy weekend look as the weather […]

Ready for Takeoff…

lady antebellum 747

Lord have mercy, I am thankful today. Lady A’s fifth studio album, 747, is out today…And y’all, it is so dang good. One thing that (to me) is the mark of great music is the way that it moves you. The way that it creates a memory and timestamps a moment. I am so thankful […]

FloppyHat_Collage

One thing that is so fun about fall fashion is all of the FAB accessories! And a chic hat has to be my fave of the bunch. I hear a lot of people say “but I don’t look good in hats so I’m not a hat person…” and I totally used to think that about […]

Womanista Fashion: Golden Texture

SBT_Cassie-11

Now that fall is *almost* upon us (chilly air, football, and pumpkin spice lattes, anyone??) let’s talk texture. I’m mildly obsessed (ok, not so mildly…) with mixing cozy, soft, warm textures. I wore this look to Day 2 of New York Fashion week and I mixed an ALASDAIR NY boxy wool tunic (the shape is so […]
