Wait. This Top is HOW Much?



This top looks so "designer-y" that I kinda can't believe it's from H & M. Unfortunately for me, Beth has done all of our shopping at H & M lately, so I haven't actually seen it in person, but I really, REALLY want it. Doesn't it look like a million bucks? I would wear it with a pencil skirt and red shoes. Where? Well, I'm not sure about that. Around the house? Sure. 

Some of you ladeeez out there who work in creative office environments would knock this one out of the park. This top says, "I see your traditional J. Crew blue oxford, and I raise you a set of trumpet sleeves. I mean bizness, but I also have a stellar personality."



1 H & M Trumpet Sleeve Blouse, $39.95 // 2 Schutz Gilberta Heel, $180 // 3 Bridge Cuff by Collette Ishayama, $200 // 4 Mango Pencil Skirt, $59.99 // 5 Ceri Hoover Cheetah Clutch, $130 // 6 NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella, $25

Looking At Online::Fall Edition

I am just dying dying dying over how chic this cape is. Zara getting it so right yet again.
Zara double-sided cape, $169


I LOVE this color corduroy for fall, and a flare, if altered to almost skim the floor 
with a heel is universally flattering. 

This top is SO cute--kinda like a modified bolo tie. I would wear it with flare jeans 
and a cute skinny belt.
Nasty Gal Mod Mode Top, $52

If you're gonna work at a coffee shop, which half of Nashville is, you gotta wear headphones to get work done. Oh, and you pretty much need to have a cloak of invisibility also because you will for sure see someone you know and for sure not get as much work done as you think you should.  
Nixon Stylus Headphones, $130

Really wanting to do some denim on denim action with this skirt. 
7 For All Mankind Button Front Pencil Skirt, $198

Thomas Rhett::"Make Me Wanna" Video

Sometimes your clients ask you to buy them very fitted black suits for videos. Actually that never happens. But miraculously, like NKOTB going on a reunion tour, it happened to me in the last two videos I worked on: Brett Eldredge's "Mean to Me" and this one by Thomas Rhett for "Make Me Wanna."

TR's suit is by The Kooples, a European line that I LOVE for a trim guy. (i.e. this type of suit would not work on a middle linebacker...more like a punter. Just to put it in fall football terms for ya.)

Ok, toot-a-loo. Have a great Monday and enjoy all the many Thomas Rhett's in this video. Which is your favorite? I think he wears that suit pretty darn well myself.

The Perfect Necklace

I used this necklace during some footage we shot of Danielle Bradbery last week, and we all agree that it's the perfect everyday necklace. Would look great for work with a shift dress, would look great layered with some shorter keepsake pieces and a v-neck tee...looks vaguely rock-n-roll with it's dogtag feel, but classic enough to not look like you're actually trying to be a rockstar. You can find this baby at Madewell, and while we're at it...WELCOME TO NASHVILLE, MADEWELL!  We are SO GLAD you finally came to hang :).

Transitions::Fall

It's about that time, and I'm SO excited. Fall. When the pumpkin section at Trader Joe's looks like a hurricane is approaching, and when you need to grab a light jacket on the way out the door. One of the most important things in fashion this time of year to get a lotta bang for your buck is knowing how to transition your summer pieces to Fall. You don't need a whole new wardrobe just yet, so a well-placed jacket and a change of shoes can be all you need.

In this outfit that Carrie put together, you have your petal pink summer maxi. You take off the thong sandals, and add a bootie. Exchange your straw clutch for a black leather one. Top it all off with a black moto jacket and 'voila'. We basically stole this girl's look and made it easy for you to shop. In all these pics, summer outfits are slightly tweaked making them Fall-appropriate. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte .




1 Mango pleated maxi dress, $59.99 // 2 F21 Faux Leather Moto Jacket $29.80 // 3 Braided double wrap belt, BCBG, $34 // 4 Fossil Erin Foldover Clutch, $148 // 5 Kelly Wearstler cocktail ring, $147.50 // 6 dv by Dolce Vita booties, $47.99

Add a denim jacket and some flat boots to a knit dress. Pinned here.

Exchange your tank for a sweatshirt with this adorable leather mini. Pinned here.

Add a cardi and booties to an easy jeans and silk tank combo. Pinned here.

Put a long sleeve shirt under a shift dress and add tights. Pinned here.

Danielle Bradbery::Acuvue

Last week I worked with my lovely lil' Danielle Bradbery on a shoot for Acuvue, the contact lenses. She did a concert here at J.T. Moore Middle School that was SO FUN. We may have all teared up a little when she was singing Katy Perry's "Roar" and the entire gymnasium started singing along. Slightly awkward middle schoolers shouting out "I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar." COME ON. Forget about it. I was done-zo.

Her outfit had to match the feel of the piece we did, where she is in a mentor role. But two things I wanted to point out are the jeans and the shoes. The jeans are a steal at $68--just perfectly mid-rise enough to hold everything in, and a good amount of stretch. The shoes are the best cognac color and surprising no one, they have fringe on them, my love language.

Brett Eldredge::"Mean To Me" video

What can I say about this video. We found a suit that fit like a glove and sat back and watched the magic happen in Chicago. It's super gorge and super fitting for the song. And ladies, just get ready. (insert smiley face emoji with heart eyes here.) Byeeeeeee.
