"New Nashville" is a term that has gotten a really bad rap. New Nashville is responsible for constant construction, pedal taverns, rap-country, bro country, TRAFFIC, & irreverent hipsters. I hear this phrase like once a week as an explanation for something, "that's New Nashville for ya", usually paired with an eye roll. 

Though it gets blamed for a lot of things that was totally the aesthetic behind this look!

I don't really consider myself New Nashville (I am decidedly not hip, cool, or Southern you guys!) and though elements of it can definitely be irritating, I hate to say it's these same things that also make Nashville a really amazing city to live in. I don't think I even mentioned that I hit my 8 year anniversary of living here this past August! I love California and always miss the Bay Area, but I'm more confident than ever that Nashville is exactly where I'm supposed to be, right now.

I actually found this kerchief during what turned out to be a very New Nashville day (and now I'll stop using the term), at still my favorite vintage shop in town, Local Honey (Belmont.) Bandanas are of course, sohotrightnow, but I was totally smitten with this one- those tiny boots! Those horseshoes! So Nashville!

I also jumped at the chance to shoot this on our pedestrian bridge downtown with Miles- a landmark, with one of the best views of the city skyline, that I run over from my office any chance I get. It's a spot that shouldn't be missed if you're in town! Also don't skip over Local Honey because I always manage to find a hidden vintage gem there.

I am absolutely out of my mind this week with activity- TONIGHT is the big volunteer haunted house that we put on a local community center every year! I have been living in that musty gym since Saturday and we are ready!! Seriously- the things that are in my brain and then instantly forgotten right now are out of control. Friday kicks off Halloweekend with our company Talent Night, someone I know is performing Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman karaoke...

On a separate but related note- anyone have a great idea for a video game themed costume? HELP
