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.

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?
Jacket: Vintage, Jeans: 7 For All Mankind, Earrings, Vivienne Kelly, Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell, Socks: Urban Outfitters, Tee: Express, Rings: Margaret Ellis/House of Harlow/F21
Tried a retro do yesterday – thank god my hair is finally getting long enough to start styling it new ways (although, this development has me spending WAY too much time on YouTube hair tutorials!). I paired it with this fantastic jacket I got in 5th grade for a dance/singing recital – I found it the other day when I was cleaning out my closet, score! Topped off the whole look with these awesome hand-painted Vivienne Kelly earrings – I’m totally obsessed with triangles right now, so I just let them feed my addiction…
What are you guys up to this weekend? I’m helping my brother out with his supper club for most of the weekend, but am going to try to soak up some of the warm weather we have coming our way as well!
Skirt: Apricot Lane, Watch: Citizen from WatchCo.com, Jacket: BCBG MaxAzria, Shoes: Chinese Laundry, Rings: Vintage/F21/House of Harlow, Earrings: Vintage
I’ve been in dire need of a better watch, so I was really excited to find this chic one by Citizen. I love buying men’s watches and getting them fitted to my wrist – women’s watches just seem a tad too small for my taste (surprise, surprise!). I paired it with my new skirt from Apricot Lane, a cute boutique in Nashville – I went there for the first time the other day and loved this high/low skirt. This is one trend that I’m really into for the spring and summer.
Also, I’m heading to LA this week – please let me know if you all have any shopping/eating/fun recommendations!
