Easter Weekend

I think Easter is definitely one of the happiest holidays, right up there with Christmas. Bright colors and cute spring decor everywhere makes me so excited! I’m really into bright colored anything and bring on the warmer weather haha. This year I didn’t have time to go pick out an Easter dress. I love getting a new one to wear but it just didn’t work this time so I ended up in one I’ve worn several times. It’s a blush shade which went perfectly with Continue reading “Easter Weekend”

Over the summer, Andrew lived in Nashville in a condo that had the best view from the balcony! It was just so pretty and peaceful (at least from the 26th floor haha). We could see everything from there since it was right in the middle of downtown Nashville. It was so fun with him living there, because we could just walk to everything from his condo. A few streets down was the CMA Festival (we went to see Jana Kramer!) over the summer and it’s also where everything in Nashville takes place. I love country music and have always lived about 40 minutes away from Nashville but have never really gotten to just walk around downtown as much as I have this past summer. There’s so much to do and see. They have live music in just about every place on Broadway. I would loveee to go to the Grand Ole Opry and still can’t believe I haven’t been yet. It’s weird that so many famous people visit downtown Nashville and I see instagram pictures with them there all the time but I have yet to see one of them in person. Oh well, it’s still fun to just sight-see there :) Thanks for reading and below is a picture I took from Jana Kramer’s CMA concert!

So I just bought this top from Gap recently but can’t find it anywhere online! Some of you might still be able to find it on sale at your Gap, I just couldn’t find a link for it. I love it because it’s so soft and comfortable but has a ruffle in the back to make it a little more than a plain tee; that’s why I linked a top above that had a zipper on the back so that it wasn’t just another plain tee. I’ve been getting a lot of pieces like this recently since they go with just about everything! Loose tees like this or this look great with skinny jeans (or jeggings for me)!

Last weekend I went to visit Andrew in Knoxville where he goes to school. It’s about three hours away so it’s a bit of a drive, but it’s definitely worth it! On Friday night we went to a cute, little Mexican restaurant that we don’t have home. I was really craving a quesadilla haha! Saturday was spent shopping of course since they have a huge outdoor mall that is so pretty and a dream for me! My last day there, we went to this park along the Tennessee river. The view was amazing and it had so many pretty bridges in the background. I think Andrew was more interested in the bridges since he’s  future civil engineer haha. When we were leaving the park we saw some houses by the river that we had to check out. Looking at houses is one of my favorite things to do now, especially the ones that are being built that you can go inside to explore. I now know the exact layout I want when I get house. The weather was just perfect too which made me really excited for fall! Hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend!!! Love you all!

These pictures were taken at Oakland’s Historic Mansion close to where we live in Tennessee. Andrew and I decided to go walk around there. It’s like a little hidden beauty tucked in the old, run-down houses near the square. The grounds around it is really pretty with slave quarters, gardens, and a natural spring; so we had fun reading the history behind all of that too. I wish we had gotten pictures in front of the mansion which is gorgeous but there were people setting up decorations for a wedding later that day. That made me think of how fun it would be to get married in front of a beautiful, historic mansion like this! I just love how the old houses look on the outside, so classic looking.

Anyway I wore this outfit that ended up matching my bag perfectly. Apparently this is my new favorite color haha! I think Andrew’s outfit is so cute because I’m in love with those shorts on him! They’re just a great change from plain khaki shorts. I hope everyone is having a great week! I just started my senior year of college (one year left, yay!!!), so good luck to anyone else that just started school too :)
