SIX GLAMOROUS SUMMER LOOKS FROM LOCAL HONEY'S NEWEST BRAND, ERA!

Kaitlyn Crocker of ERA is a woman on a mission. She has hand selected a beautiful collection of vintage finery for those of us who have grown bored with the overly-typical bohemian selection abounding in Nashville thrift spots and vintage shops lately - giving us a chic and sporty alternative to flouncy and floral.  


Want to know what makes this collection even more appealing? Every single item comes straight from her Grandmother's incredible time machine closet, consisting of pieces from the 1950s through the 1970s - all in great shape and ready to romp in! 

Nothing makes an item more appealing than when it has history, and some of my best wardrobe pieces have stories all their own - something I love sharing with anyone who asks about them, or anyone I can sucker into listening to me.

 Kaitlyn will be more than happy to share her Grandmother's clothes and fun anecdotes with you if you stop by while she's floating around Local Honey. She's such a joy to talk to! 

So, wear her Grandma's clothes. You'll look incredible. 

 I sat here for like, 20 minutes trying to figure out a way to incorporate that song  joke...

BANG-UP BETTY 40 CALIBER SHELL DROP EARRINGS: BECAUSE YOU LIKE TO PACK HEAT & LOOK GOOD.

I'm always on the lookout for anything made from recycled goods. 

I feel a little happier inside knowing I'm not contributing to the endless trash pit of rejected material possessions cluttering up our poor Mother Earth. Even more thrilling is when I find a brand who creates beautiful, easily wearable accessories out of unexpected items. 

Case in point: Bang-up Betty - a full on fun fest of bullet shell earrings to add that unexpected bit of badassery to your summer wardrobe.

You can find these hand-made southern charmers on Bang-Up Betty's ETSY or purchase them through Bourbon & Boots a great online resource for southern finery.

LOCAL HONEY x2

I was going to say something all cutesy like "These are the REAL Local Honeys." but I thought I'd let these pictures just speak for themselves:


Model Peek-a-Boo!


Now. Just LOOK at this stylish group. All up on their A-GAME (I said that in a really sassy voice inside my head)  I couldn't possibly be more in love with men's collar embellishments! Let's just talk about this! If I felt it were acceptable to still be saying the word ' AMAZE ' I would.
..Damn.  

Oh, and the stunner in the center is my fashion goddess Codie of A Brunette. She alters all of her own dresses. crafty. (and she'll let you shop her closet if you're real, real sweet.)






Babes in glasses. 


I stalk Renee's fashion from afar. I'm sorry I'm an internet stalker Renee! But really. This girl knows whats up. 

I'm wearing:  Skirt / Urban Outfitters + Top / American Apparel + Necklace / Vintage + Shoes / Jeffrey Campbell
I'm also wearing an awkward sunbeam as a chin-guard or something. sweet!




I bet you recognize this face! One of my favorite people to run into, Zoe of GIRL WITH THE FLOWER  always has on something incredible.  I feel like I'm surrounded by the glories of springtime every time I see her, and she's just as sweet.  She made that super cool blue fur bag! And probably everything else she's wearing. Can I plz borrow some of your crafty-ness?! 



I love it when ladies do dots & stripes! This whole outfit was summer time chic and that lipstick shade was a lovely compliment to her style. 

I'm not gonna lie, white pants are both my deepest love and darkest enemy. I can't own a pair because my face and utensils often torture me by failing to work properly when eating messy, greasy, stain-y foods. But I love them. SO, SO MUCH.  White pants I mean. Not stain-y foods.

But all that aside - this wonder-in-white pulled them off with perfection and brought the whole outfit together with a tough girl camouflage tee and 
cage-esque boots. 



The beautiful Balee Greer. Guess which collection she curated! 
I've never seen Balee in anything I haven't loved. She pulls off any trend with ease and if it isn't a trend yet, she'll create it. Even better? She has a spring and summer line that you'll swoon for. Best of all? It's super affordable. 

Stop by East Side's Wax Nashville Nail Lounge Saturday, May 11th 10am - 4pm for Balee's Trunk Show
