’m kicking off this year’s holiday home tour with my favorite room of the house, my living room. Last year I started going with more neutrals and all-white for this space during the holidays and this year I continued with that theme. I also added in some more blush and pale pastels which I love. I usually do a real tree in here, but decided a flocked tree would fit even better with the overall colorscheme so I got this one from Wayfair (find more of my favorite flocked trees here). It is beautiful and great quality and a perfect size for this space. I also added a few new touches from Anthropologie like my faux fur tree skirt and mauve pom pom garland (shopping links below).Read More

Keep in mind all the packages listed below cover styling services ONLY for your existing tree/decor.Read More
I can't think of a better way to kick off summer than a dinner under the stars in the Keeneland Paddock! Thanks to Keeneland's new Paddock Dinner Series, you too can experience one of these intimate, family-style dinners right smack dab in the center of beautiful Keeneland. I'm not exaggerating when I say this is one of the best meals I have ever eaten in Lexington, and each course was better than the last. The decor and ambiance was also just perfect with live music, delicious appetizers and drinks being passed, colorful tablesettings, and twinkle lights strung across the Paddock.Read More
I'm always so excited to try out new local businesses in the Lexington area, but especially when one of my dear friends is one of the owners! Lexington's newest must-visit spot is Varnish Nail Shoppe, an chic and high end all-natural nail salon. They truly nailed every detail in this shop from the minimal, midcentury decor to the well-curated array of products and services. The service is top-notch and you really feel pampered every step of the way! One of my favorite parts of my manicure is when they mixed up a custom sugar hand scrub with my favorite scents right in front of me. I also really loved the selection of stylish polish colors that they had available AND they specialize in doing some super chic nail art too!Read More
Happy Valentine's Day! This fun shoot with pops of pastel + red was one of my favorites to date! I knew I wanted to shoot in front of one of my favorite houses in Lexington in Gratz Park. This home reminds me of a Charleston house on rainbow row! The star of my outfit is this faux fur pastel jacket (which I snagged on clearance at Target!). Since it's currently not online, I linked tons of similar options below! I paired it with another Target fave, this mock neck sweater (also seen here) which was the perfect pop of red to match my heart balloons! I've also been loving Maybelline's new matte ink lipcolors, and this Heroine shade is the perfect bright red! You can shop all of my outfit details which are linked for you above + below!Read More
Today I had the privilege of doing a little segment discussing holiday decorating tips on a local news show, Midday Kentucky. If you didn't get to catch the segment live, I've linked it for you below! I was so nervous leading up to this interview that I didn't really tell anyone about it in advance! My plan was to just pretend it didn't happen if I said something stupid, tripped, or did something embarrassing during the interview! Thankfully none of that happened (I think) and I survived! Live TV is such an exciting challenge and before I knew it, it was already over! Thanks to the team at Midday Kentucky for giving me the opportunity to come on the show, and especially to Katie for being so kind and helpful with her interview. Also a special thanks to the gals at Hartley Social for setting this up and joining me behind the scenes today. Check out the full video + some behind-the-scenes photos below!
