Step aside, Blake Lively. There’s a new lifestyle brand in town. Named after her grandparents, Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James embodies exactly what you’d expect of America’s sweetheart – all things Southern and pretty.

But fair warning… If you’re a lover of florals, monograms, and gold accents, brace yourself. Because you’re going to want everything. From housewares to clothing, these pieces are selling like hotcakes (or should we say biscuits?), and they’ve got sold-out signs to prove it.

As of now, the only way to score the coveted label is online. But this fall will mark the opening of the brand’s first brick-and-mortar store in Nashville, Tennessee, Reese’s childhood and current home. See y’all there!

Sweet tea. Warm weather. There’s just something about the South that makes us want to smile. Channel your inner southern belle and dress the part (no matter where you live) with these quick tips:

  1. Start with bright poppy teardrop earrings. Bonus points if you match your lips to them.
  2. Throw on a girly dress with all the best details: pink polka dots, a full skirt, and a strapless silhouette.
  3. Step into a pair of nude sandals (they go with everything). It’s an excuse to pamper yourself with a pedicure, too.
  4. Prepare for sunny days – and doting stares – with a pair of oversized shades.
  5. Finish the look with a bright white envelope clutch big enough for the essentials (phone, wallet, and lipstick).

All that’s missing? That sweet southern drawl.
