White’s Mercantile is one of my favorite shops in Nashville.

Audrey) decided to open White’s and explained the concept to me, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
