Earrings: Kenneth Jay Lane I’ve never seen a tassel I didn’t love. From the weird mauve ones on my grandmas curtain treatments to the ones in my ears in these photos. There is magic in a tassel. Hassling for tassels even brought my best friend Shawn Johnson and I together one day at the Michaels craft store(full story at the bottom). So why not do an entire post on tassels. I love the tassel in the ear with this simple dress and simple Kendra Scott bangle. This is the perfect canvas
On the blog: coming soon! // Just to get your hearts racing a little bit… Ps…thank you to all of you who have been following along. I’m loving this so much and can’t wait for you to see what’s to come! Yayyyyaaaass!! I’m so excited!
Shirt: Rails // Puppy: Louis // Popcicle: Pineapple (duh) // Bracelet: David Yurman Hey can I borrow your puppy is a bold move, but one I knew I had to make for this perfect union of Ps. And if I didn’t find the most precious baby puppy in the world. Meet Louis. My new friend. I’m obsessed with all three of these things. The puppy and the popsicles for obvious reasons…but the shirt…let me tell you about this shirt. So I fell for Rails LA shirts last fall. I’ve never
So…I’ve spent the weekend chasing waterfalls and such with my family in Smithville, Tn. I’m the oldest of a wild bunch of 23 first cousins who all grew up on the same farm in Kentucky and when we get together it’s quite magical. It’s a little over an hour from Nashville and there are these fancy cabins you stay in that make it much more like GLAMping than camping, but I’m not complaining. What a treasure we found in our own backyard… Carmack Falls // Smithville, Tn // The Inn at
Dress: Rebecca Taylor // Bangles: Cartier, Kenneth Jay Lane and Jade(from China) // Ring: David Yurman I scream, you scream, we all scream for it but I definitely scream the loudest for it…or the voice inside my head does. If you ever went to Golden Corall and saw the little girl dipping her soft serve directly into the container of sprinkles, her name was Mallory and that wasn’t her first cone. The struggle. And my love of a good ice cream has not left me(unfortunately) as my metabolism slowed and it became unacceptable
When I pictured the image of my blog photoshoots I pictured myself in a white flowy dress on a bluff in Mykonos, effortlessly capturing shot after shot of the finest quality…in reality it’s more like me in an alleyway sitting on a concrete block covered in fire ants in my DIY denim shorts trying to appear artistic by a graffiti image of a blonde who looks like me…I’m a straight fool…but whatevs, carry on. I’m a country gurrrlllllll…through and through. So I can’t get away from a few things like
Dress: Sherri Hill // Earrings: Jim Ball // Bracelet: David Yurman // Makeup: Full list coming soon // Lipstick: Bobbi Brown Pink Mauve Liner and Anastasia Beverly Hills Pure Hollywood Liquid Lipstick So this one time I won a pageant. And each year they invite me back where I willingly squeeze myself into a beautiful Sherri Hill gown like a big ole sausage and try and appear elegant whilst standing next to Heather French Henry(the forever Miss America and my friend to whom grace comes easily). I paint my makeup
It’s funny how one thing leads to another in life…especially mine. How growing up in a small town led me to big dreams…singing country music led me to Miss America…Miss America led me to The Amazing Race…The Amazing Race led me to hosting travel shows…….so on and so on…. Through all these travels and experiences I’ve learned a thing or two about a thing or two.
