Reflecting on Six Months as Mrs. Tennessee Int'l 2016!!

Wow - I can't believe I'm already half way through my year as Mrs. Tennessee International 2016!! Six months ago this photo was taken with my handsome husband right after the crowning moment!! Since then we've expanded our ministry to women and girls struggling with severe life traumas through "Beauty Unveiled", taking beauty events and workshops to girls homes and abuse shelters in cities across the region. Curling hair, doing makeup, nails and watching the girls light up after their makeovers has been such a wonderful thing but then following it up with a workshop that goes beneath the surface, talking about TRUE beauty and how to overcome life struggles... it's all been SO rewarding.

Perfect Thanksgiving Outfit!

I'm not sure why but this sweater immediately makes me think Thanksgiving! LOL! Somehow it seems like the perfect thing to wear to Thanksgiving dinner with the family. I paired it with these moto leggings (which come in all different colors) and black boots. Who's loving this sweater weather?! I say that but today it's supposed to get up to 80* LOL!! We just never know!! Comfort - comfort - comfort!! And yes, I'm a nut! ;-P ...or maybe just a kid a heart! <3 Keep Smiling! ;-) Deanna L Blouse & Leggings: Bella Boutique - Mount Juliet | Boots: Clarks Photo Credit: Bethany Long Photography #fallfashion #nashvillestyle #nashvillefashion #bohostyle #bohochic

Winter White!! :-D

I love neutrals for the Fall/Winter seasons!! My generation has definitely changed what's considered "fashionable" for winter colors and I love that "winter white" is one of those changes!! :-D Distressed white jeans with nude heels or even better, a pair of booties! This white faux fur vest was a perfect match for this look. I love it without for Fall but would definitely add the vest for winter! Bella Boutique has adorable accessories too!!

The Perfect Fall Color Combo

The Fall season is finally starting to show up in Nashville!! Cool mornings and pumpkin spice lattes are a daily reality for us now!! :-D I absolutely love the Fall colors (except orange unless it's the right shade :-P) and this dress has them all!! I was so excited when I found it and have been pairing it with the headband from The Sparkling Lilac! Daisy Alexandria Designs always has something to match everything but I bought these bracelets because they really do match a good 60-70% of my wardrobe!! :-) Dress: Ark & Co. | Headband: The Sparkling Lilac | Jewelry: Daisy Alexandria Designs | Photo Credit: Bethany Long Photography
