This weekend Leilani, Kyla, and I drove down to Nashville from Chicago for Leilani's birthday. We left at 5 am on Saturday and got there at 2pm so we made pretty good time! But this was the first time the three of us spent this much time in a car... so needless to say, things got a little wacky.
I would walk 500 miles... #classic #himym vine.co/v/bDvAni03EYm

As we all love vintage so much the second we got into the city we headed straight to the Nashville Flea to do some quick shopping before it closed. I always love seeing the different markets in cities other than Chicago because the variety of vendors is so different. There were far more furniture and nic-nac dealers than clothing-- which is very different from markets here. Most of the markets in Chicago are pretty well balanced as far as clothing, jewelry, and furniture go.
Kyla, being the token country girl, fell in love with all the western style pieces from cowboy boots to bolos and western shirts. Leilani picked up some jewelry and she ended up buying two turquoise spools of yarn.
I picked up this beautiful 1980s Neiman Marcus fruit necklace from the sale from the original owner. Isn't it the greatest? I've been drawn to fruit so much! I also picked up a few pieces for my apartment (not the deer and buck below though!) and some dresses for Lost Girls Vintage.

We had dinner at Loveless Cafe, a famous Nashville spot known for its smokehouse BBQ, fried chicken, and biscuits. I tried their fried chicken with creamed spinach and fried green tomatos. Hands down, best fried chicken I've ever had. So delicious.
Leilani snapped these photos of me before we headed out for our day.

Thankfully it didn't rain much on our first day and I was able to wear this cute spring dress. No such luck the rest of the weekend though! I'll post more about our trip later this week. Hope you're all doing well!

Spent my day off running around the snowy city with Kyla picking up the last pieces for the spring photoshoot we're doing this Sunday for our lookbook. It's going to be all 60's and pastel, full of ice cream, candy, pastries and deliciousness. Kyla was nice enough to snap these pictures of me towards the end of our day of shopping.
