Southern Chic with Draper James















| Photos | Kate Davis Photo


I'm sure you have heard far and wide that Reese Witherspoon started her own apparel/home brand, Draper James, and that she has opened her first store here in Nashville.  How lucky are we?!

She has injected so much southern charm into her brand and her pieces are absolutely beautiful.  Unique, fun, feminine, timeless, contemporary and classic are just a few words to describe her pieces!

A few months back, I was lucky enough to meet Reese, when Draper James celebrated their grand opening here in Nashville.  It was amazing to learn more about her story, how Draper James came about, as well as all of the southern influence that played an important role in everything from the apparel designs to the charming southern details throughout her store.

In today's post, I've styled two looks around this gorgeous Belle Detachable Faux-Fur Collar Coat. The first is a more casual yet still chic look and the second, a more dressy look.  Everything that I am wearing is Draper James with the exception of my heels.

I've paired this beautiful Printed Dogwood Sweater with a pair of "Tootsie" jeans, these classic statement stud pearl earrings, and this ADORABLE tote..."Totes Y'all"!!!  I mean, does it get anymore southern than that?!  And what I love about this sweater is that it has a detachable collar too!  Leave the collar on for classic preppy look or remove it to achieve an even more casual look.

And how gorgeous is this Frannie Cap Sleeve Jacquard Dress?!  The fit of this dress is amazing and the fabric is absolutely stunning.  Talk about a statement dress...one that is perfect for the office (throw on a blazer) and perfect for all of those special occasions too.  Personally, I'm thinking Valentine's Day right now!  To complete a special occasion look, I've finished this look with the Red Velvet Statement Earrings!

Need I say more about this Belle Detachable Faux-Fur Collar Coat?!  This beauty speaks for herself if you ask me.  What I love most about this coat is that it literally goes with everything and is perfect for dressing up or dressing down as I've shown here.  The faux-fur collar is detachable so you can also achieve a more casual look by removing the collar.  I personally LOVE the faux fur collar so I wear this coat with both casual and dressy looks...collar intact!

When wearing these Draper James pieces, I always feel so polished and put together!  

If you haven't checked out Draper James yet, I encourage you to indulge in some serious southern charm that will have you feeling like a Southern Belle in no time!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
