'Elaborately Simple' Musings at Southern Belle Simple

Knox Blog of the Month:


Kate Spears’ Southern/foodie/style blog offers an appealing swirl of topics, from ruminations on plastic storage containers to gift guides to tips on how to actually have fun at a holiday office party. These are the stock in trade for many home-ec blogs, but Spears has an inviting, witty style and she’s willing to tackle unfashionable topics, like not getting along with your family at the holiday table. But what does Southern Belle Simple mean? “In a way, southern belle simple is an oxymoron much like saying deafening silence or jumbo shrimp. That’s why it’s fitting to have a tag line that reads: utterly southern, elaborately simple. If calling something elaborately simple sounds strange to you, then you might not be southern.”
