Welcome to A Touch of Southern Grace, my name is Lauren! I launched my blog Christmas Eve of 2012. A Touch of Southern Grace is an outlet to share my love of fashion, style, books, movies, travel, and everything that has to do with Southern lifestyle. I enjoy beautiful dresses, traveling, reading the next best book or an old favorite, I'm somewhat of a foodie (still working on the cooking thing...), a connoisseur of Coca-Cola in a glass bottle (they're the best!) , bubbly drinks, and I love black & white movies. 

I am a Nashville native through and through - I attended an all-girls catholic high school, St. Cecilia Academy, and went on to attend a liberal arts college, Lipscomb University, where I graduated with a  Bachelor of Science degree. Despite the fact of living in Nashville my entire life I love to travel and experience new things, but honestly could not imagine calling anywhere else home; in the words of Amy Grant, "a tender Tennessee Christmas is the only Christmas for me". 

In my free time you can find me hanging out with friends and/or family, reading, playing tennis, loving on my dogs (Coco and Ella), trying out the newest Nashville restaurant, or just relaxing and watching one of my favorite movies or binge watching Netflix. 

A Few Fun Facts About Me
 - Seaside, FL. is my favorite beach and my happy place

- I can't resist anything with a bow, a tasteful amount of sparkle, blue, or monograms

- I'm 5'6

- Growing up my sister and I had matching Christmas pajamas every year and have carried the tradition over into adulthood 

- I'm slightly afraid of the dark, but can't fall asleep unless my bedroom is pitch black

- Tacos, Sushi, and Pizza are my all time favorite foods

- When I was little I wanted to be Grace Kelly when I grew up (weird kid, I know...)

- My favorite flowers are light pink peonies

- I consider leopard and plaid a legitimate color

- I'm a Vanderbilt football fan

-  When I'm at the mall, Nordstrom, J. Crew, Tory Burch, Free People, Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer and Madewell are my favorite go-to stores, and of course I will always walk across the street to take a spin through Anthropologie, obviously. Then there are just too many online shopping sites I love to list them all

- I always end the day with a few pages of a good book
