I live the dream, singing and writing songs in Nashville. My favorite things (besides music) are thrifting, DIY projects, wine, puppies, and anything vintage.

Shooting a beach themed music video in September in Tennessee is... tough. We've got plenty of lakes but Nashville is a little short on cool beach front property.  So when it came to shooting the video for Boys and Beaches we were at a little loss. Thankfully my director scouted a location on Old Hickory and it has this TINY little strip of beach that we used!  Sometimes, you gotta go with whatcha got!

This shoot was super fun cause I got to drive a V cool old convertible and also hang out with my hot music video bf Nick. (Oh hello cheekbones!) 

It was also a little bit of a challenge styling cause there was NO way this girl (with a real woman bod) was gonna get in a lil bikini on film. NOPE.  So I went with a full piece bathing suit from Aerie, some H&M cutoffs and my go to Lotta from Stockholm clogs. Also had a super cozy Molly Green cardigan to wrap around me during all the sunset (which was really a sunrise) shots!  For the flashback scenes I chose a stunning dress made out of vintage dead stock material by a designer Christy Dawn who I'm obsessed with.  

I love the way this video came out! What do you think?

All my 💖,

Ruthie
