Oh my, y’all blew us away with your odes to Southern spring! There were beautiful blooms and buds outside…

In case you’re not familiar with the concept of a Southern Doin’, I’ll recap for ya: A Southern Doin’ is any sort of a Southern activity. There’s no official panel of judges that decides whether or not something is Southern; you get to decide for yourself whether your Doin’ falls under the spirit of the South! We came up with Southern Doin’s because even in the midst of V5 craziness, we didn’t want to forget to get outside our office and remember all of the things we love about the South. (And there are oh so many things.)
We’re ratcheting things up a notch this year with our Southern Doin’ monthly challenges. Each month we’ll pick a Doin’ prompt and post it here — something to encourage y’all to go, do, make, explore, discover, and love in the spirit of the South and the Sweet Tea Society.
We’ll be Doin’ right alongside you, and we’ll all try to remember and use the #southerndoin hashtag, alrighty? Then, we’ll come back here and post a little recap on the blog of our favorite tweeted, instagrammed, or Facebooked Doin’s before we post the next month’s challenge.
But enough explanation — time for the challenge! For April’s #SouthernDoin Challenge, we’re celebrating the arrival of warmer temps and brighter colors by encouraging you to snap a pic of a favorite Southern outfit! Feel free to don your snappiest seersucker, most glorious gingham, loveliest Lilly print, or cutest cowboy boots, then share with us! We’ll be posting our favorites next month right here on the blog.
Are you in? Sound off in the comments! And happy Doin’!
