Make Mine Southern.

This morning I am super excited to share with you this extra Southern, extra feminine look from my favorite new brand, Draper James! If you have been living under a rock and haven’t heard of Reese Witherspoon’s new lifestyle brand, then today is your lucky day–seriously. A few months ago Reese (I can call her Reese, because we are besties… proof: here, here, and here.) launched this beautiful brand, and ever since then, it has been my new go-to dress shop. 

There are a few things you should know about me: 1. I would rather be in a twirly, swirly dress than anything else (this has been a trend since I was two years old… no lie!), and 2. I LOVE me a printed A-line dress! And these, of course, are two things that Draper James is EXTREMELY good at producing. I just big-pink-puffy-heart-love every single dress, and this one has been on repeat since the day the postman dropped it off.

This is such an updated classic look, which has always been my favorite. Since I have such fair skin and light hair, I always tend to lean towards more of a classic silhouette and and a bright poppy lip!

I also really love the back of this dress; it’s a bit flirty, and you can NEVER go wrong with flirty! Also, it’s such an easy look to transition from day (with a pair of flats, a tote bag) to night (with a pair of heels and a bright clutch)! I love an all day dress, because, let’s be real, no one has time to change four times a day! 

If I haven’t sold you already (which, duh, I already have), you need to stop what you are doing and go get yo’self something extra fancy! I pinky promise you won’t be sorry!

  1. I love Draper James! I do not love the small sizes…I wish I was a 12 or below, but at a 14, I am not, sigh. Maybe that will change soon. You look gorgeous!
