Before we jump into today’s topic… My apologies for no new article on Monday. We’ve been hit with a stomach bug around my house. We’ve been pretty wiped out! Thanks for understanding. Hopefully, the worst is behind us. – Carrie
About Draper James
We first took notice of Reese Witherspoon’s lifestyle brand Draper James when the company was launched in 2015. There was an enormous buzz online, and we started following along with the label. But our love for the label really reached a feverish pitch with this summer’s offerings. Before we get into exactly what we are loving, allow us to share a little background about the brand.
Reese started this brand as a tribute to her own Southern heritage. In Reese’s own words:
“When I returned to Nashville with my own family, I wanted to recapture and celebrate all that I love and remember about my grandparents and the South. That is why I created Draper James.”
That tribute to her grandparents is carried out in a very explicit way. The company itself is named after her grandmother Dorothea Draper and her grandfather William James Witherspoon. It’s her way of thanking them for everything she learned about living as a Southern lady with charm, grace, and style.
Draper James is all about bringing contemporary, yet timeless Southern style to our wardrobes and homes, no matter where we live. In a market crowded with fashion lines, Draper James stands out for its unwavering commitment not just to certain products, but to a particular lifestyle. As one of the company’s investors told Fast Company, “Reese’s company stood out in that it is less about an item or even a category, and really about an attitude and a whole way of life.”
With the Southern starlet’s strong voice and involvement, plus the brand’s clear identity, Draper James is off to a great start. We can’t wait to see what they do next! For now, join us in enjoying the perfect-for-summer offerings.

Details of My Look
For this Draper James summer look, I couldn’t resist this gingham midi shirtdress. Doesn’t this just encapsulate summer? Wearing this makes me want to attend a fabulous picnic somewhere beautiful! I chose to pair it with the equally summery Eva straw lemon bag. (Note that through Tuesday, you can use code “moreweekend” for 20% off all bags!)
If seeing this dress on me isn’t enough to sell you on it, look what Reese herself chose to wear for the Fourth of July!
