I'm not the best at keeping secrets {if you follow along on my Instagram, this you already know ... #sneakpeek} but thankfully I don't have to keep this one any longer. Thrilled to be part of the #MEETOURMAKERS series from one of my truly favorite brands, FRYE.

FRYE MeetOurMakers

I got the chance to share my studio and some of our designs in a series of photos + a video for the campaign that celebrates designers, makers, artisans and their craft. I love a good behind-the-scenes look and meeting some of the other Atlanta makers and entrepreneurs that took part in the series was truly the best. Take a look over on The Love List for the full story, and over on the FRYE Instagram to see our maker video.


Now, I'm no stranger to boots, being from the South. But THESE boots have been a part of my style staples for as long as I can remember. Some well-worn, others with a little more shine, if you meet with me chances are I'm either sporting boots, a hat or an apron. And that's just what I love most about them - they can effortlessly take me from carpool to meetings to the studio or warehouse and back to chasing my three littles. I can pull them out year after year and they never go out of style. It's a collection I keep adding to, and now with my post-kiddo commitment to a new capsule collection AND the new FRYE store at Ponce City Market one I'll certainly be updating even more frequently.

Thought I'd share a few of my favorite FRYES. In my closet currently on go-to rotation ... Harness 12RPaige Tall RidingBilly Pull On.  I've included a few I have my eye on for Fall as well.

Hope you'll pop over to FRYE's Instagram and check out some of what Atlanta had to share.

{Thanks to Caroline for capturing a little behind the scenes that day. These boots chase my littles around the studio daily so this is a pretty accurate look!}

the garden & gun jubilee.

Well, it's officially Fall and I must say as a small business owner, I've been prepping for Christmas ever since July. I couldn't be more excited to share that I'll be participating again this year in the Garden & Gun JUBILEE in Charleston. Even more exciting {well ... for me at least} is that I'll be attending this year, too! Garden & Gun is one of my very favorite magazines and it paints such a beautiful picture of the South that I was raised to know. The JUBILEE brings together a wonderful mix of Southern makers, designers & artisans and I simply cannot wait to meet others, explore the city, and taste all the wonderful things the city has to offer.

G&G was kind enough to offer up a little incentive that I'm happy to pass along {mostly because I love this piece!} but also because it means if you snag tickets now then hopefully I'll see you in Charleston! Purchase your JUBILEE tickets now through 9/30 & use promo code: POSTER at checkout and you'll receive a copy of this beautiful print for yourself.

I love that concert or national park posters have become commemorative pieces framed in homes, and who knows, maybe this piece will hold the same special meaning one day as well.

So, I'd love to know, what in the world should I do during my trip to Charleston! Would love your suggestion on favorite shops, restaurants, places to stay, & things to see while we're there.
