This is Hannah Jones (and her brand new Nashville studio space!) who’s one half of the duo, Jamie and the Jones. The co-designed line also includes Jamie Frazier who’s currently living in Seoul, South Korea where she’s developing the brand. The two friends met at O’More School of Design and have been working together ever since combining their similar aesthetics that lean towards clean silhouettes and meticulous handwork — I’m talking knitting, crochet, embroidery, beading and hand painting. These gals do it all.
Be sure to check out their beautiful collections here.

Meet the designer behind her namesake label, Elizabeth Suzann. I originally came across Elizabeth’s work on Instagram, and was instantly drawn to her clean silhouettes. All the garments are handmade in her Nashville, TN studio where she uses natural plant and protein based materials, while incorporating printed and hand dyed tactics on select pieces. What’s even more impressive is that Elizabeth is a self taught designer, making her craftsmanship and vision that much more inspirational.
Elizabeth’s space is very much a reflection of her style, and filled with creamy hues accentuated by warm light streaming through the windows of this once upon a time yoga studio. Feel free to browse her collection online, or make an appointment to stop by her space for a peruse.

Here’s a little taste of yesterday’s Leona popup sale I co-hosted at Elaine Turner. The event was so much fun and filled with glam clothes and accessories from both designers.
Shop Leona’s collection online or swing by their 12 South location if you’re looking for a splashy new outfit (maybe for an upcoming holiday party?) Their pieces are versatile and perfect for mixing with other pieces.
Special thanks to Will Vastine for the shots he took of me wearing all Leona + Elaine Turner shoes and clutch.
Wow! June has been quite the loaded month, hence why I’m just posting some of my favorite shots from Bonnaroo now (check out the entire spread on Refinery29 here). Stay tuned for a very exciting project UTG is launching in partnership with Nashville Public Television within the next couple weeks!
I spent some time at Churchill Downs over the weekend photographing all the fabulous fashion for ELLE.com at the Kentucky Derby. This has always been one of my favorite events to photograph because I grew up riding horses and competing on a world level. I hope to get back into riding one day, but until then, my yearly trip to the Derby will have to do!
Above are a few of my favorite shots, but you can check out the entire spread on ELLE here.
Thanks Imogene + Willie! Get all the details on my favorite things, here.
Confession: Imogene + Willie throw some of the best summer shindigs in town. You’ve heard me rant about them before and last night’s get together was up to par with all the others. The Ettes and Ultras S/C provided tunes, Mas Tacos dished the grub and The Peach Truck made sure you left with a bagged sweet treat. I love to wander into I+W with my camera because the store always seems to have a new piece or some sort of beautiful arrangement that I must photograph. I tell ya, true artists and taste makers over there.
Also wanted to quickly note how proud I am of all the national attention our city has been given via The New York Times and GQ. Everyone has their opinion on the pieces but at the end of the day we should celebrate the fact that we live is such a prosperous and downright cool place. Cheers to that!

The absolutely stunning Gail O’Neill wearing a self made hat, Alexander McQueen dress and Giovanni Rossi heels. She was one of the first models ever featured in US Elle. Nice full circle moment.

Instead of giving into my urges to stay inside bundled up on the couch watching movies (it was a cold, damp day yesterday) I drove over to Green Hills to check out the much anticipated West Elm Nashville + Etsy: We Love Handmade Art event, which was curated and co-hosted by my friend Elise Yetton of Pennyweight. Elise has impeccable taste and it certainly showed through the work of the hand selected Tennessee Etsy sellers. I took a few photos of the items that caught my eye but check out all their shops for a little Sunday splurge.

Summer essentials: vintage acid wash backpack, iPad, business cards, bracelets, Moleskine notebook, change holder, belt, film camera (when I don’t have my trusty 7D on me) and a little Victoria’s Secret blush and Sonia Kashuk gloss.
