You all know I’m a sucker for gorgeous rings and this one by Melinda Maria is my new obsession because I need more emerald in my life! I paired it with this fabulous blue maxi – it was a comfortable, breezy outfit for strolling around downtown LA. My brother was in town and we enjoyed a delicious meal at Alma, an amazing little spot that you all need to check out!
I’m editing photos from my road trip, can’t wait to share those with you as well! Hope you’re all having a fabulous week :)

There are very few places I love more than my hometown. Nashville is full of love, community, memories, and most importantly, my dearest friends and family. It’s a place I’ve lived for 20 years (considering I’m 26, that’s a looooong time!), and although I absolutely love it, it’s time for a change. I’m always up for a new, exciting adventure and I’ve decided to head out to Los Angeles, California! It could be a few months, it could be a few years, it could be a decade. Who knows? It’s time to do a little exploring, sing a few songs, style a few folks, and meet some fabulous people along the way.
How soon? Well, I’m already on the road with my big brother for my very first loooooong road trip (2,000 miles!). I love that this blog has been with me through Boston, Miami, Nashville, and now LA!! Here’s to many future beach blog posts :)
Nashville, I LOVE YOU.

That’s right folks, my first GIF! My next few posts are going to be a fun series I shot with the amazingly talented Will Vastine and will feature clothing from one of my favorite Nashville brands, DCXV. Have you guys seen the “I Believe in Nashville” murals around town (for you out of towners, you might remember it from this post)? My friend Adrien Saporiti (owner of DCXV) created that mural and has expanded to a clothing line. This tee is is one of my favorites – what can I say? I’m a sucker for a soft gray tee shirt and pretty much anything with french writing on it. He also started a kickstarter campaign to expand his company – be sure to support if you can!
Also, can I just say, these confetti photos might be some of my most favorite blog photos ever – and that’s saying something, considering I’ve been in the game since 2008!

The weather in Nashville has been absolutely wonderful, so I decided to hop on over to the Franklin Farmers Market with my family on Saturday! From farm fresh produce to fun jewelry, this place was the perfect day to spend a weekend morning. My personal favorites were The Biscuit Love Truck, Baya Designs, and Dozen Bakery. Juice Nashville also sells their product there, but they were sold out so I couldn’t get a photo or a juice (bummer!) – however, they are opening up a new store in the Gulch, so be sure to donate to their kickstarter if you want more juice!
Oh! I also added a few more features on the blog – you can now just hover over an image to pin it, “like” or “retweet” a post at the bottom of each one, and comment with disqus! Let me know if you have any issues, I’m still sorting out getting all of my old comments back on the blog.
How was your weekend?
