In two days, Anel and I are packing our bags for our first trip of 2016. We’re heading to Nashville for the weekend to celebrate my friend Cynthia’s 30th birthday. When we originally planned the trip back in September, we had high hopes for warm temps to escape New England’s winter chill, but they’ve been hit with a ton of snow so those high hopes are mostly a pipe dream. The high over the weekend is expected to be 62 so crossing our fingers that it actually warms up. No matter what the weather, we’re so excited to get out of town and have some fun in a city that none of us have ever been to.
It will get down to the 30s at night so I’m packing lots of cozy layers to be prepared for whatever hits us. After so many pink posts lately (Like this drapey blush sweater look and my Valentine’s Day wish list), I did a complete 180 when pulling looks and ideas for our trip. Maybe it was the snow and chilly temps over the weekend but this icy blue and cream palette is on my mind.
I stumbled upon this Ted Baker icy blue coat and it was all over. How incredible? It will be a great transition piece to spring. For now, I’ll wear it layered over cozy sweaters like this grey fisherman or a matchy turtleneck tunic (obsessed with this sweater, you guys!).
During the day, I plan to stay comfortable in simple flat booties and a chic cross body bag to hold the essentials without bogging down my shoulders. And you know I never go anywhere without my trusty S’Well.
If you have any Nashville recommendations, comment below! So far on our list is Adele’s and Rolf & Daughters for dinner, Barista Parlor and Crema for coffee, and a pop into Draper James for some shopping.
