‘Tis the season, y’all, and let me tell ya, it’s one of the best seasons of the year, but then again, I may be a little biased since I’m a Kentuckian.

It’s DERBY SEASON!

*and the crowd goes wild*

I always receive questions on what to wear to the Kentucky Derby, so I’ve put together a few Derby outfits to share with y’all over the course of this week and next — beginning with this Kentucky Derby Run for the Roses Dress.  Isn’t it stunning?!

Keep in mind that all of these dresses, including this ‘Run for the Roses’ dress, are not only great for the Kentucky Derby, but also perfect for weddings and events! You may have noticed on my Snapchat {username: a_southerndrawl} that my best friend just got married last weekend and I wore this dress for her bridal luncheon and then again later that night for the rehearsal dinner.  It was quite the hit and perfect for all types of spring events! Plus, it’s a super flattering dress + it’s lightweight.

Oh, and if you’re trying to get your boyfriend or hubs on board {like I am}, then make sure to snag this blazer for him! It’s quite…festive…but adorable, nonetheless!

Are any of y’all attending the Kentucky Derby or the Oaks? It’s such a fun time!

P.S. This rose print is available in a few different items, like this dress, this top, or this pullover!

10/27/18 Mr. & Mrs. White

There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t feel so blessed to be Jordan’s wife. He is my everything. These photos and video are the sweetest reminder of our love for one another. So, grab a cup of coffee, pull up a seat, and try not to bawl your eyes out (because I know we did). Every time we look through our photos and watch our video, we cry the happiest tears.

The Proposal

It’s crazy what can happen in a year. I met the love of my life and the rest is history. I was having a hard time ending this post, because frankly, I think I could talk about that evening forever. Then I realized that this post doesn’t have an ending, but instead, a beginning. Thank you so much for all of the love, excitement, and gratitude.

Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is bake my dark chocolate chip pumpkin bread! I’ve made it *so* many times for me, J, and friends & family. It’s moist, decadent, and super easy to make! It also makes for a great DIY housewarming gift.
