- Texture (Does it look like it feels cool? Fuzzy is the new black)
- Proportion (Unexpected shapes makes outfits interesting)
- Athluxe (A word I learned in fashion school that means making gym clothes chic)
- Turtlenecks (10 y.o. me would be mortified)
Neutrals (Sometimes when I’m feeling crazy I wear taupe)
I think having an affinity for wine is something most regions of the world can relate to. While my favorite bottles come from places like Argentina and France, an afternoon at a vineyard in Tennessee was a great way to escape from the dizziness of everyday obligations.
About 45 minutes out of Nashville, there is a slice of southern paradise called Arrington Vineyards. The drive out weaves between rustic family farms and flower filled fields. It’s far enough from the highway to feel solitude but close enough that making a visit more than once a season isn’t hard to do. The vineyard offers free tastings (up to nine wines), music on warm weekend nights and plenty of picnic tables. It’s one of my favorite ways to spend a sunny day.
Vineyards can be found all over the place, it just takes a little looking to know where to find them. Next time you have a free day gather some friends (1 or 20) and road trip to one around you. It will result in a memorable day that’s an escape from every day life. While you’re there, take advantage of the opportunity to taste the wines the vineyard offers! You never know what new tastes you may discover and love from then on.
I put together a little guide to help you on your next wine tasting adventure. The biggest thing is just to learn a little something, relax and have fun!
My mind is actually blown that I’ve ended up in New York for fashion week this year. Luckily enough, I got here after much of the snow has subsided and have just been hitting pop up shops and promo parties like they are two-for-one Tuesdays in Nashville. MBFW is real, guys.
JK I’m actually wrapped up in an afghan, hair in a post-shower top knot and trying to downplay the sincerity of my late night hunger pains by aggressively clicking through every show available to me on style.com in real time. The glam factor is here, everyone.
Seriously though, there are a lot of shows and I don’t know how any normal person is supposed to keep up with them, so I thought I’d post a few of my favorites from fall/winter 2014 thus far. Here. We. Go.
Hopefully I’ll be able to keep this up so we can all benefit from being current.

an asshat I know everything when I’m out with my friends.
