Yesterday, Neil and I took a trip down the Natchez Trace parkway to grab ice cream at Leiper's Fork and take Bloom for a walk out in the country. It was so beautiful and relaxing - driving across the Tennessee countryside feels like home to me now, despite growing up in Illinois. Summer is in full swing here, since we've been in the middle of a heat wave (like most of the country) for a couple of weeks.

Leiper's Fork is a little hamlet of a town just southwest of Nashville, where we go from time to time to listen to music and eat barbecue at Puckett's Grocery. We took Bloom on a walk along the street and ate our ice cream before it could melt. It was an easy going day - perfect for striped maxi dresses, linen button ups, and rolled down windows.

Neil is wearing a white linen button up, khaki shorts, and K Swiss canvas sneakers - all from Billy Reid (his birthday outfit!), and a thrifted leather belt. I'm wearing a striped maxi dress from Forever 21, Target straw tote (2.50!), and leather wedge sandals by Kork Ease.

And I just realized I never announced the Alexandra Grecco giveaway winner! Chosen via random.org, congrats to Sara of Sweet Harvest Moon!

Tonight, we're hitting the 12th South farmers market and eating at the Grilled Cheeserie truck with some friends. Here's to hoping it doesn't rain on us as we eat our grilled cheeses and shop for tomatoes. Happy Tuesday! Handmade shop update coming tomorrow!
