You guys! In case you couldn’t tell from my Instagram yesterday, meeting Reese Witherspoon was even more wonderful than I could have imagined. I’m still pinching myself! (And it seems quite a few of you love her as much as I do given that the photo got more likes than the one announcing we were engaged!)

Here’s how it went down: The new Draper James store at Highland Park Village in Dallas invited a bunch of local bloggers to see the new store and meet Reese in person. I had already popped into the store the weekend it opened (#fangirl) but who would miss an opportunity to meet Reese Witherspoon? Not this girl! She is absolutely as adorable and charming in person as you would expect and she spent time chatting and taking pictures with every single person at the event. I can’t imagine how exhausted she must have been by the end of it! She was truly the hostess with the mostest — in addition to being a talented actress, producer, and entrepreneur. So, you know, total #goals.

Speaking of goals, I would move into the Draper James store in a heartbeat. Not only is it decorated by my dream designer Mark D. Sikes, it’s filled to the brim with adorable clothing and accessories brought to life by Reese herself. Between the marble countertops, Serena & Lily barstools, and navy grasscloth wallpaper, it’s as much inspiration for my dream home as it is for my dream wardrobe. Here are a few snaps from the Draper James store and what I wore to meet Reese!

  2. I don’t think I could ever be as cool as you if I met Reese. I would be freaking out.

    I adore Mark D. Sikes so I love the design of this store. I currently want to live in his book.

  3. I LOVE Reese! So jealous you got to meet her! And the Dallas store is gorgeous- I really want to visit one of the Draper James stores (or have them open one in D.C……)

  4. I saw this on your IG last night, what an amazing experience to meet Reese in person! She seems like such a down to earth girl and her style is just amazing! Thanks for sharing so many behind the scenes shots on your Stories! xx Rox-Anne,

  5. This is amazing! I’ve loved Reese since I memorized Legally Blonde (the Legally Blonde movie poster is still framed in my childhood bedroom.) It’s so nice to hear she’s just as awesome in person. Also, great pic!
