Spring Fringe

Tennessee’s state capitol building has been on my Nashville bucket list and I finally got to check that off along with another trip down Broadway at night to show my mom the bright lights, honky tonks
and really, just the crazy shit show that it is on any given day. We ended the night grabbing a slice of pizza at Five Points Pizza, which may very well be the best New York style pizza I’ve ever tasted in my life.
It seems each year I forget the prior struggles with wearing fringe and how impractical it actually is. The fringe got stuck in my purse, in the seat belt and stuck on my tables and shelves in restaurants and shops I stepped into. Despite the annoyances, it was worth the hassle. I just love anything poncho-like and it made for easy dressing.

To escape the cold Michigan spring and the clutches of my diet, I flew to Nashville with my mom for a mini vaca to eat all the bread, brisket and lattes I can stuff myself with. We’re here until Tuesday and we’ve already exhausted ourselves with trips to various neighborhoods, downtown and the Belle Meade plantation. I don’t typically experience FOMO, but I do when I travel and if I’m not going making the most of the trip and packing in as much as possible, I feel as if I’m missing out.
I wore this outfit basically two days in a row, the first night for dinner outside at Butchertown Hall and the next day to tour Belle Meade and to visit some antique shops, trading out the heels for brown boots and a crossbody bag.

Nashville Night

DSC_9526
Thanks to my friend Andrea’s master braiding skills, she delivered a perfect crown braid, strategically placing whispy hairs out and about so I felt a little unkempt and more myself. You might notice the same leather paneled leggings from my last post, but I was determined to pack just what I needed and so I planned a day to night outfit around these leggings.

Nashville Day

DSC_9452
I spent last weekend in Nashville and it was sunny, warm and damn near perfect. I really can never get enough of the city and the more I explore, the more I want to spend time there. I spent Friday night trying Barista Parlor coffee, antique shopping and dinner at Silly Goose and early Saturday was all about brunch at Husk, sipping hard ciders and wandering around the Honky Tonk area people watching and hanging out on patios and rooftop decks.
