ttF Fashion Staples Series Diary: Tennessee Time!
Today, I headed down south to visit my parents in Memphis. Aside from New Orleans and Miami, which doesn’t really count, I have never been to the South. In my head, I pictured southern belles primped to perfection. But I was told not to bring anything too fancy. For dinner I dressed up a pair of jeans with a feminine cardigan and glitter flats. I pinned a brooch to my cami underneath so I didn’t tear the tulle on the sweater.
We ate at Owen Brennan’s and all I have to say is it was a good thing I chose not to wear skinny jeans! After oysters, red beans and rice, Caesar salad, fish, fresh crab, bread and wine I thought I was going to burst. It was a warm, filling welcome to the South.
J. Crew cardigan, Citizens of Humanity jeans, Express cami, Calvin Klein belt, London Sole flats, mother’s brooch; On Mom: Diane von Furstenberg top, Fabergé egg necklace… we both wore ruffles!

Love your blog! I’ve definitely revamped my wardrobe (without many purchases) by seeing how versatile some key pieces can be. I saw the April staples but haven’t seen the post for May staples. Did I miss it?
Keep up the great work!
Thanks Tatiana! So glad to hear you’ve revamped your wardrobe with spending a fortune. That’s what ThinkThruFashion’s all about 🙂

Your London Sole flats are super cute and I love how you added your mom’s brooch to the cardigan!
