We were in Nashville for Memorial Day weekend.  It was my first time there, even though St. Louis is an easy 4.5 hour drive away. If you’re headed that direction anytime soon, I’d highly recommend the following: Barista Parlor for coffee, Pinewood Social for a lazy Sunday reading the newspaper and noshing on a boozy brunch, and Bastion for before- dinner drinks. But since this is more of a fashion blog than a food blog, thought I’d share some details about Nashville’s most famous export and her clothing line. Yes, I’m talking Reese Witherspoon and Draper James. The brand has it’s only brick and mortar store in Nashville’s hip 12 South neighborhood. The clothing felt a little drunk-on-sweet-tea to me, with lots of seersucker and eyelet…like together on an article of clothing (example is here). Don’t know about you, but I’ll take either seersucker or eyelet, but usually not both at once. That said, there were adorable things for the home…like these melamine plates and these guest towels.




The store decor, in my opinion, is more interesting than the items stocking the shelves. Designed by Nashville design firm, Pencil and Paper Co., the store has a fresh, homey vibe. It’s very blue and white, in a good way.  I especially love the fitting room wallpaper and how it was hung horizontally in the hallway and vertically in the rooms themselves- a cool, subtle touch. Also loved the navy gallery wall behind the cash register… and of course the Lindsey Adelman chandelier was a showstopper. There was great attention to detail, both inside and out. Because, if you are on Instagram, you’ve already seen that bold blue and white striped wall on the store’s exterior. So, when in Rome…
