pinspiration: a stars and stripes hostess...

Happy Independence Day to all of my fellow American readers. I hope that whatever you're up to today, you have a lot of fun. Here are my best bets for the hostess - what to serve, what to wear, and the ultimate July 4th Americana playlist.

  • My current guilty pleasure is this chronicle of Cole Swindell's epic man crush on Dierks Bentley. #sorrynotsorry

SWOON.

"I want to get into some action films because I don’t like the sense that people feel that curvy women, plus-size women, aren’t active as well. I think that’s very important to let the world know that I can jump up shit and do fancy things with swords, too, like combat. I went to Juilliard, for God’s sakes, I know a little something about combat. To get in that, to show that side of someone who is bigger than a size 6, would be fun for me."

How are y'all doing? I'm still recovering from camp and took it slow all weekend (highlight: a trip to the Roanoke Valley's newest brewery). This week's clicks include flowers for days, dresses for all of your summer occasions, and the history of a Southern classic. Coming to the blog later this week, I've got a great new Pinspiration post and reviews of some recent entertainment faves. As always, shoot me an e-mail about what's new and awesome in your life - I'd love to chat!

LISTEN.
  • Summer is always when I listen to country music the most, and I'm currently in love with the new track from local boys Old Dominion (two of the band's members are from Roanoke). Also, a country music video with video game references and bloopers? What a time to be alive.

SWOON.

"I had the voices of the women I grew up with. It takes your breath away how quick they are. It’s the kind of humor that would sear through treacle."

Happy almost-summer, darlings! Can't you feel it in the air? I've got some great stuff for you this week, so grab your coffee cup and get clicking! I'm spending the work week at my favorite place on Earth - my childhood summer camp - so be sure to follow along on Instagram!

LISTEN.
  • The Barr Brothers were a Spotify discovery for me; I love live videos like this one where you can see how much creativity goes into actually creating music (rewind if you want to hear the entire intro).


SWOON.
