The Southern Coterie co-founders, Cheri Leavy and Whitney Long, recently created a summer salad recipe for Reese Witherspoon’s Southern lifestyle brand, Draper James.
Cheri and Whitney love the Draper James clothing line and are pictured wearing some favorite designs while shopping produce and prepping the salad and gabbing with TSC alum, photographer and friend Kelli Boyd on the latest news from the community they all foster. The Southern C offers the opportunity for passionate business owners, makers and doers to connect, collaborate and create online at www.thesouthernc.com throughout the year as well as in person at the annual Southern C Summit.
