SafetySuit, Some Very Nice Humans

We have our favorites here at Amber Lehman Styling.  The SafetySuit guys are some of them, tied up at the top with a few select others.  They're dang talented, dang adorable, and dang nice.  Here they are on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week performing their newest single, "Let Go", and some shots from our photo shoot last fall below that.

Cute, aren't they?  Go out and buy their album.  If you like good jams sung by cool dudes, and you like supporting people who are NICE HUMANS.  And dang, Geena, it's only $7.99.

Dreaming of the Sedona Sunset

It's so dreary in Nashville.  And wet.  And cold.  At least if you live further north, you get pretty snow to go with the frigid temps.  We get rain.  So it's just nice and damp here for months at a time.  Like last night, for example.  While lying in bed trying to decide if we should go to the basement to avoid the potential tornadoes, I flashed back to last summer on our family trip to Arizona--"it's a dry heat."  We drove to the Grand Canyon one day, and on the way back, some of us made a pit stop in Sedona and watched the sunset over the red rocks.  Now, I look quite bedraggled in the pic above*.  Remember that "drive" to the Grand Canyon?  Well, it was 3.5 hours one way and included 5 kids under the age of four.  It was fun though.  It was.  And also, I'm really sorry about the people in the background of our lovely shot, especially the lady wearing the unfortunate seafoam green shorts and sporting a hefty wedgie.  Oh, God bless her.

I digress.

I actually really wanted to post about all the Southwest patterns popping up everywhere, so whilst I was dreaming about being in the warm, DRY air of Sedona last night, I was also dreaming of the prints below!  They're literally on everything these days.  And I'm in love.

*Actual sunset pic at bottom.

1.  Pendleton for Opening Ceremony Pencil Dress, $179.70, Shopbop.  Dude.  This dress is majorly on sale.
2.  Ecote Bucket Bag, $39, Urban Outfitters.  You'll never be able to find jack squat in this bag, but who cares when you look this adorbs.
3.  Geometric Woven Scarf, $10.80, Forever 21.  Can't beat Forever21 for some cheap stuff, ya know?
4.  One Teaspoon Native Poncho, $215, Singer 22.  This one is a little more of an investment, but I think these colors all look so good together!
5.  Southwest-Inspired Boyfriend Shirt, $54.99, Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply.  I've been loving this Ralph Lauren collection that recently showed up at our Nashville Macy's.  It's all so perfectly wearable for right now and decently priced too.
6.  Badlands Woven Belt, $68, Nasty Gal.  Would look great with a pair of cords.
7.  "Revolver" Wedge Boot, $149.95, Jeffrey Campbell.  Leave it to Jeffrey Campbell to throw some Southwest print on a bad-A wedge.  I mean, so great.  And that color will forever more remind me of the "burnt sienna" crayon from the 64 box with the sharpener.  Gah.  It was the perfect color for the roof of houses in my Cinderella coloring book.

Jana Kramer, Gorge-asaurus

Here are some images that were posted on Just Jared yesterday that are so completely GORGE, I wanna just cuddle with my computer screen right now.  We styled Jana Kramer for this photo shoot for her album last August on literally one of the hottest days of my entire life.  Obvi, Jana looks amazing, but meanwhile on the other side of that lens, the rest of us look like mangy river rats.  

Jana's debut single "Why Ya Wanna" hit country radio this week and broke a record for most added debut single of all time for a country artist.  Whoa and Whoa.  Be on the lookout for this gal, who we could NOT BE MORE EXCITED TO BE WORKING WITH!!!!

Lauren Alaina::"Georgia Peaches" video

It's all Lauren, all the time here at Amber Lehman Styling right now. We are working this week on getting her dressed for her opening slot on Jason Aldean's "My Kinda Party" tour. Now that's a show I would NOT mind seeing! Check out the tour dates here and check out her new video out last week for her single "Georgia Peaches" below!

A wardrobe note from this video is that I found my new fave fit of 7 Jeans--the Kaylie, which she is wearing throughout. They fit a curvy girl like a glove, I tell you.  Enjoy!
