Saturday morning was a cold day in Music City but it didn’t stop a few of us from hanging out on the porch (it is the South) and just bonding before we finally went in and had breakfast together. Thanks to Laura M, Laura S, and Sara for fixing breakfast for all of us! There ladies are awesome.
After breakfast we all got dressed and separated to explore Nashville. For me my girls Laura and Sara took me to Draper James which is the lifestyle and fashion brand of Reese Whiterspoon. In case you didn’t know Draper James has teamed up with Eloquii for a collaboration and they have just launched their third collection with Eloquii (click here to view collection). You can also purchase the collection from Draper James too. Southernistas if you ever get a chance to go to Nashville you have to go to Draper James! It is a wonderful store and I purchased a cute skirt because they also carry the collection in store. To see how I styled the skirt check out my Instagram page @reginaswilliamsgmail.
After we left Draper James we met up with everyone at Curves with Purpose at the Galleria in Franklin, TN. Curves with Purpose is a pop up store which donates to many charitable causes which sells on trend plus size clothes. You can also shop their website: www.curveswithpurpose.com. If you want to know more about the fashion they carry check out Laura Roy Stanberry’s lastest blog it’s all about this store. That Saturday everything in the store was 50% off so of course there was shopping to done and fun to be had!
After shopping was paused because honestly we could have stayed there all day and shopped we went back to our Airbnb to change and prepare for our photo shoot Laura M organized for us girls. We had so much fun and our photographer Tami was amazing. Nashville has beautiful mural art but the most popular mural art are the Angel wings so be warned there is a line but it moves fairly quickly and it is really worth the wait.
After the photo shoot we returned back to the house and got ready to go out to dinner at Mockingbird and an early celebration of Laura M’s birthday as well as Sara’s and Jennifer’s birthday. While there we found out the chef/owner of the restaurant is a Chopped Champion and we got to meet one of the Chopped judges Chef Maneet Chauhan! The food was delicious and the Chef and Maneet Chauhan were so wonderful to us. Mockingbird is a must for a really great meal!
Sunday was our last day and we said our goodbyes to everyone. We said out goodbyes to Laura M and Sara Saturday night since they were the first to leave at 6:00AM in the morning. It was bittersweet for all of us because we had truly not only become friends over the weekend but sisters! We has so much fun and several of us discovered that we are style sisters as well. Although it has been two weeks since the getaway I really miss these ladies and I can’t wait for us to do it again next year! I’ve included more pictures below of our photo shoot.
Until next time Southernistas Be Bold, Be Fearless, Be Confident!
