Hubs got back in town Friday and leaves again next week so wanted to make sure we had a weekend full of family fun.I scoured the Facebook events section to see what was happening around town and saw an event for Sevier Park Fest and our day was decided.  It is a 2 day street festival located in my most favorite neighborhood of Nashville, 12 South. Mark my words, we will live here one day.

 

We loaded up the car, kids, and dog and headed into the big city from the burbs. The best part of street festivals is that there is something for everyone. Corla, our Boston Terrier, had butts to sniff, the girls had a kid zone and music to dance to, hubs had good food, and I had booze during the day, not on vacation and no guilt along with local shops. Not to mention always good photo opportunities.  Visiting the walls in 12 South is a day in itself, that I am planning very soon when we are dressed for a photoshoot. Every where you look there is a wall that would make a great backdrop.

There was a kids zone with tattoos, kinetic sand, balloons, and so much more. Funny story, 2 years ago Brooklyn and I took this same exact picture. Clearly we are a street festival fam,

 

 

It started to sprinkle so we jetted but so glad we were able to get out and enjoy the day together outside. We will def be back next year! Hope to see you.

Yay! Hubs got back in town early this AM after working away all week so naturally we had big plans for today! We grabbed the kids, dog, my mom and sis and hit Main Street Festival in Downtown, Franklin.  Festivals are always so much fun for the family with food trucks, kids rides, music, shopping, and beer.

We got there early to avoid the crowd. Ha, yeah right. This event brings in so many people it was crowded at 10am when it opened. We instantly made it our mission to find some snacks. Kids with food, guarantees moms can shop a little easier.

 

After we got our face painting we had to stop at every reflective surface to see it. They loved it. And I love how Charleigh picked the girly bow and lashes, while Brooklyn picked the black lips and red eyes.

 

 

 

Earlier this month was Nashville Fashion Week.  I didn’t attend this year but I have updated my bucket list to attend so can I ask a favor and will you hold me accountable and while we are here and Im asking for favors Im going to need you to come with me. ok?

I am relatively new to this whole Fashion Blogging Genre (hang with me, I promise it will get better with some more practice. ha) but I just can’t keep my favorite local shop a secret from you all any longer. Cotton Mill Boutique speaks my love language.  She has gorgeous, on trend pieces at a very reasonable price. Not to mention they are high quality and always changing. And don’t worry if you aren’t local, you can shop online or you can shop on her Instagram.  She will also set up girls night out shopping events or schedule a time to shop her showroom.

I have put together some of my current favorites below!

The Perfect Jumper

Everyone needs a jumper in their closet this season and this one fits the bill perfectly. It has pockets and pleats. So it’s basically flattering and functional. Not to mention the softest material ever. And this might be TMI but this doesn’t require a bra and yet still keeps girls in place.  Ill take any excuse to not wear a bra too! I have dressed it up and worn it on date night as well as business meetings and then dressed it down and worn it to street festivals and play dates. It’s perfection and can be ordered HERE.

I have been lusting over dusters this spring so naturally when I saw this one in a perfect pink with giraffes on it I knew it would be amazing. I am still looking for the perfect pair of jean shorts to pair it with along with a basic tee. Its lightweight and so flattering at the waist.

 

Black and White Stripe A-Line Dress

This will be another staple in my wardrobe this summer. I also got this jacket from Cotton Mill in the fall and its been a favorite of mine since I got it.

 

Basic Tee

I love tee shirts. I love to pair them with yoga pants or to dress them up with a sequin skirt and this tee is perfect for all occasions. It is looser fit which does wonders for my figure and has a cute pocket for a little detail. Im going to need this in every color.

Keep an eye out on my Instagram as I restyle these pieces often through the spring and summer. Head on over to Cotton Mill Boutiques Instagram and follow along for the most recent pieces. Also if you plan a girls night shopping event, I better get an Invite. Deal!? Can’t wait to see your goodies!
