where has the summer gone? what has happened? will & i are in mississippi (!) and my new baby nephew just left my arms. life is very good. i had a house show at my mom’s in gulfport on sunday where i showcased several new songs with a few string players and my brother & sister-in-law accompanying me. heading to nashville tomorrow to celebrate a best friend’s wedding and wrap up my new album! whew, it’s been a whirlwind summer but filled with lots of fun, exciting things.

but did you know? it’s my birthday week! i turn 26 on sunday. here are a few things on my wishlist… since moving to london, i’m scouting some cold-weather basics:  city-approved booties, a sleek coat and thin, cozy cashmere. andddd after all of the po-boys i am eating, i will be in need of some healthy inspiration in the kitchen.



j.crew cashmere tee ($188) / j.crew drapey sailor tee ($49.50) / MANGO maxi flap coat ($219) / Warby Parker Huxley in Sandalwood Matte ($99) / Takara Crown Midi Rings ($115) / GP It’s All Good ($15) /  MANGO booties ($109)


hope y’all are well – can’t wait to share new music with you and come back to some regular posting in the fall! xoxo

will’s christmas happies

a few things i got out of will – his loves are pretty consistent: that brown liquor, pipe-smoking, podcasts, and books.

1 | national book tokens – you can buy online for particular book stores or for all the stores in their national (UK) network!

2 | noise-canceling headphones – because if you listen with your earbuds on the tube, everyone around you will hear more than you do. he listens to the flophouse while he does the dishes every night.

3 | johnnie walker black

4 | a bulldog pipe – he smokes presbyterian tobacco, sometimes while wearing vintage (his dad’s) tweed blazer – swoon!
