Nash-Vegas


I'm wearing these post-trendy booties out until it gets to humid down here. I think they look a lot better with cut-offs than my ole flipflops will come June.

As for my preoccupation with Nash Vegas at the moment: Nashville is just one of the many cities in the south east I have yet to visit. So this past weekend I bought a men's tee with "Nashville" silk-screened across the front. It's a baby step/reminder of the necessary road trips that must happen this summer: windows rolled down, cicadas humming and gallons of iced sweet tea.

Where are you guys going this summer?


tee, Lucky Brand; shorts, old Gap jeans cut; blazer, thrifted; booties, Zara; earrings, June Shin

Cute outfit!

Unfortunately for me, I think I'm stuck where I am in the eternal search for a job. *sigh*

I've been trying to go to Nashville since February!! Every time I make a plan, someone inevitably flakes out. If you ever need another person for your TN road trip, let me know!! haha

Cool t-shirt. I'm thinking about a trip through the eastern seaboard with a few buddies...I've always been kind of afraid of the south...

I'm heading there this summer! With my girls. And also going to a wedding in Hawaii and then off to Fiji for a week and change. Lots of fun activities ahead!!!

Love the booties! I haven't been to any of the South at all, which is a shame.. I do plan on taking a road trip there at some point though, I looove road trips!

Post-trendy? That's the best, it means you make it your own! Nashville sounds fun...I'm planning on Vegas this summer (just got back from Portland and the Oregon Coast on Monday), Toronto, a few local islands or two, possibly San Fran in september and New Zealand in Dec!!! can't wait, I live to travel :) and shop...bad combo for my wallet...

WendyB said...

post-trendy? great term! I've never been to the south, though right now a road trip just about anywhere sounds amazing.

roadtrips to the metros of the southeast are always divine! and you *will* love nashville. a favorite vintage store i like to visit is called 'flashback'- check it out for funky finds!

also- i know you girls linked me a while back for my blog 'sweet tease, please'. i had a wee bit of trouble with the blog... or something. anywho- started anew! new address, new look, new stuff. so could y'all re-link me? would be much obliged! http://somesweetteaseplease.blogspot.com

pss- y'all should trek over to mississippi this summer!! especially to oxford, which is (i think) the the charm of the state. just sayin'...

We went to Nashville for a fam vacay when we were young and loved it! You'll love it when you go. You look fab and I love the fringe boots. I'm probably going to continue wearing my ankle and fringe boots throughout summer here! I only invested in one pair of new sandals b/c of that. :)
