Summer Blues with Draper James

Today I’m hanging out on The Draper James blog chatting all things. Reese Witherspoon’s brand, Draper James, is full of feminine pieces and southern staples. I love their girly dresses, classic tops and chic accessories. Plus, did you know that it’s sold at Nordstrom now? In today’s post I’m wearing their Rosie Ruffle Top, Parton Check Ruffle Skirt and Hello Sugar Vanderbilt Tote.

I love the contrast of relaxed basics with feminine statement items so I styled both of these with classic staples. For the Rosie Ruffle Top I chose a good ole fashioned pair of skinny jeans and nude pumps for an easy date night look.

I always try to provide realistic style inspiration for every day life and mix beautiful statement pieces with items every woman would (should) have in their closet. These jeans from Augusta Twenty are no exception. I think Mother makes the best jeans and while they are expensive you can often find them on sale! I love the raw edge because it makes cuffing them really easy.

I’ve been wearing this necklace from Madewell on repeat. It has an adjustable slider so that you can shorten it or lengthen it! Genius.

I’m naturally drawn to romantic pieces and love anything with a flutter sleeve, ruffles or lace. My overall wardrobe is much more casual though so I tend to dress down girly pieces with basics like jeans and tees. I love that both of these looks go perfectly with the items I love to wear on repeat including denim, white, classic shorts and tees.

For the Parton Check Ruffle Skirt I chose to go with a white tee, sandals and the Hello Sugar Vanderbilt Tote for an outfit you could wear from anything to a Saturday morning market to an evening cookout. This skirt is very nice and could easily be dressed up but it’s also versatile enough to wear with a plain tee.
