Naked Without Us Preview

Just a little sneaky peaky of what I'm working on for Naked Without Us...which is officially in less than 2 weeks! I still have so much to do. If you're in the Nashville area I would love to see you there :)

Things I Love Thursday

So as it would seem, I am jumping on the ole "Things I Love Thursday" blogger bandwagon. Not because everyone is doing it...but really because I always seem to find myself brimming with inspiring photos and thoughts during my weeks to share with everyone. So instead of just bookmarking them and moving along with my day, I'm going to begin sharing them with you all :)

So here goes....


I love my cats more than anything...and I can't help but love a good cat photo. Just look at his big eyes!

This awesome sewing machine! If I had this baby maybe I would be productive??? Maybe? No?

Some words to live by, I think.


This girl's absolutely stunning hair. She has a pretty great tumblr too!


Bathroom inspiration! Last fall we painted the bathroom that I share with my sister this exact color. I've been procrastinating decorating it but I love the idea of a hodgepodge of frames and vintage mirrors


The Jeffrey Campbell Lita. I finally bit the bullet and bought a pair of these today. I've been lusting after them since they came out and of course I decide to buy them when they're backordered until nearly July. BUT I have purchased them and will patiently wait!

Hope you all are enjoying your Thursday! PS tomorrow I will be posting a sneak peak of the Love Simone collection I will be showing at Naked Without Us :)

Blonde in the Bowler Hat

Outfit Details

Sweater- Kimchi & Blue
Dress (Underneath the Sweater)- Urban Outfitters
Knee socks- target
Hat- Target

Last fall I ended up jumping on the wig bandwagon (thanks to Kaelah over at Little Chief Honeybee! I wore it a lot around Christmas time and since then it's just been sitting on a hat box by my fireplace. Last week I was feeling a bit lazy with my hair and threw it on before I went to work. I absolutely love the rapunzel-like look it gives me, and it's also just fun to change things up a bit sometimes. The only downside is that it's kind of like wearing a fur coat on my head when it's hot out, so my wigs day may be limited...

Victorian Spectator

Some snapshots of the lovely leather and suede booties I bought from Anthropologie last week. I wore them to go and get coffee the other day with mustard knee high stockings!

Since it's been AGES since my last update, here is what has been going on in my life (in bullet form!)

* March was probably the busiest month I've had since last fall when I was preparing to graduate! I went on vacation with my family to San Francisco, went to SXSW with my friend Laura, and volunteered for Nashville's first Fashion Week! (Worked with Traver Rains, formerly of Heatherette....he taught me how to saran wrap a dress- like a turkey! More on that later..., was intimidated by Kelly Cutrone -she DOES know what she's doing when it comes to back of house, though! etc). I also met some amazing people, many of which I'm sure will become lifelong friends!

*Worked extensively on my spring collection, part of which is currently on the racks at Nashville's Local Honey (For photos of current Love Simone things click on my facebook page to the right!), and the other 8 looks will be shown at Naked Without Us: Fashion & Music Festival Friday May 13th at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville! I'm excited to be showing alongside one of the girls I worked with during fashion week, Amy Breen of amy.b designs!

*In between those time consuming/stress-inducing activities, I was incredibly ill with the flu for what seemed like an eternity, dyed my hair blue and green, and as you can see above...finally figured out how to make my blog photos a decent size!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter, mine was nearly perfect!
