It’s not a secret that I fancy myself to be a little bit of a southern belle- the vibrant culture, rich history, sweet nature, & welcoming lifestyle just make my heart sing! Even though there is a debate about whether Florida really counts as the “south,” I’ve always believed that it does! Therefore I’m a southern belle by birthright, right?! ha. (Fun fact: most people who live in Florida aren’t from here and natives are called “Florida crackers.” I was born & raised in the sunshine state so this belle could also be called a “cracker!”)

One of the other things I love about Southern culture? All of our fun catch phrases! One of the ones that always makes me feel like Dolly Parton is when I tell people I’m going to get “gussied up” for the night (southern translation: all done up)! I mean, is there a cuter way to say you’re about to get fancy?? I think not! You can only imagine how much this “gussied up” tee spoke to me when I spotted it on the Grace Layne site (hint: I said “come to mama!”) hehe. Lately I can’t get enough of the graphic tees I’m spotting everywhere! I’m having so much fun amping up the sass by pairing them with skirts for a more dressed up look. Case in point: pairing this tee with a brown leather mini! Isn’t it just the most fun??

    Born and raised in Florida too! I love that it’s such a melting pot, but where we live it’s definitely the south! The sayings are so funny. We had a big discussion with a group the other day about whether or not they call it supper or dinner. Not the same thing I’ve learned!
    You look awesome Gentry! No one pulls off the tee shirt and skirt combo like you do!
