Everyday Etiquette: The RSVP

outfit details: lex & sullivan dress (on sale!) and carolina strung necklace

I’m thrilled to kick of a new series here on Somethin’ Southern where we’ll be chatting about “proper” etiquette in today’s world! While the queen herself (looking at you Emily Post) would probably cover her eyes at some of the “rules” of the modern world I think it’s important for us to talk about how things are changing and what we can do to continue practicing graciousness and honor in 2019. I’ll be writing these posts not only to help y’all strengthen your relationships and exude graciousness but to remind myself of what matters and to learn alongside you! Etiquette exists not as a stuffy set of rules but as a way for us to make others feel comfortable and valued! Side note: I can’t wait to dive into Lizzie Post’s book, Manners for Today where she takes on this very subject and applies her grandmother’s rules to modern world scenarios! Have y’all read it?!
