There's nothing I love more than the south. The scents, the small towns, the nostalgia, the southernisms and twang; I love it all. Brands and products that celebrate, and are created in the south are as sweet as a georgia peach in my opinion. They herald the lifestyle only a true southerner knows and enjoys. Do you really need to monogram your summer table linens, your wine glasses and your sun hat? Why, of course you do, darlin'!
If you're not sold on the south, and all it has to offer (yet), then you'll just need to check out the new lifestyle brand, Draper James, from Reese Witherspoon—straight outta Nashville, y'all. The brand takes its name from Reese's grandparents, Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon.
My grandparents taught me everything I know about gracious southern living. From them I learned to dress and act like a lady, to take pride in my home, to reach out to help a neighbor, and to always invite everyone in for a visit.
Word on the street is all y'all Nashville ladies will have a flagship store coming to an area near you sometime in the near future.
The price points aren't cheap, ranging from $14 for a set of southernism pencils to $300 for a sundress, but the prints and the thoughtfulness behind each item is the south at its finest.
