Taking Draper James to France on July 4th

Retro Inspired Independence Day Shoot

It’s truly incredible how much our young country has been through after 241 years in existence. Much has impacted our current trajectory, and while most of it is our own doing, we would not be who we are without the support and loyalty of our allies. Through all of our growing pains the people and country of France have been there for us, from acknowledging our sovereignty and becoming a military ally in our fight for British independence, to gifting us our beautiful Lady Liberty over 100 years later. We would not be who were are if it were not for France.  I wanted to do a little something different than most blogger’s annual July 4th inspired outfit post, so I hope you enjoy this little French-inspired look on America’s birthday!

DIY Steeplechase Derby Hat Tutorial

Because I don’t really have a horse in this race I can’t justify spending hundreds on a Derby hat every year, but that doesn’t mean I can’t at least look as if I did! You’ll probably recognize the hat shown in today’s DIY from last year’s Steeplechase post. I think I paid about $40 for that hat at Stein Mart, which is more than I like to pay for something I’m only planning on wearing only for a few hours! I decided this year I would just give that same hat a makeover and save my $$$ for the lobster roll truck at the Race!

Easter Mani by Celebrity Nail Stylist, Jen Tsourvakas

I hope y’all aren’t tired of my @jen_of_all_trades manicure updates because I love posting them! Even though this isn’t the usual post (where I show you how to DIY something!) it still lends to creativity and inspiration! What better way to get inspired than to look at creative nail art, right?! I always get great ideas for all kinds of projects after browsing unique, brightly hue-ed manicure designs on Pinterest, and I’m sure I’m not the only girl who does this! For April I knew I wanted something Easter themed with my monthly manicure, and after creating this year’s bunny-centric Easter blog content I wanted to stay with the bunny theme!

Web.com Tour | Nashville Golf Open

I will be taking over the Andrews Cadillac Instagram on Saturday, June 18th to live cover the Web.com Tour: Nashville Golf Open! I’m really excited to endorse this event because it brings a 5-year agreement to The Nashville Golf & Athletic Club through the PGA, which means yet another boost to the Brentwood economy. Nashville is growing at a rapid pace, we have a lot to be proud of, and it’s always a good thing to have an athletic event bring a community together — which is where Andrews Cadillac comes in. This luxury car dealership has been a part of the Brentwood/Nashville community since the Summer of 1979 and contributes to many charitable organizations and projects, including the Nashville Golf Open. Read more about how this event is directly helping our community by positively impacting young people through golf and the game’s positive core values like sportsmanship, respect, honesty and perseverance through The First Tee of Middle Tennessee, HERE.


As part of the festivities, Andrews Cadillac is holding a meet and greet on Tuesday, June 14th, from 4-6pm with players Brian Campbell and Oliver Goss at 1 Cadillac Drive, Brentwood, TN 37027. Anyone who comes to the event will receive 2 general admission tournament passes (while supplies last) and will be entered into a drawing for Cadillac Hospitality Pavilion credentials. Tournament information is at www.ngogolf.com.
