It was around this time last year that I attended an event with my friend Ashley for Afrohead Rums and I immediately fell in love with this brand. It was the Nashville Chapter Launch for the Unscripted Bartender Series at Amari and I got to eat delicious foods and sample different Afrohead cocktails made by local bartenders.

We actually had a weekend where Steve and I were both in Nashville and didn’t have to work, so we enjoyed relaxing, getting stuff done around the house, and grabbing coffee on Sunday morning. It was really cold over the weekend, probably the coldest it’s going to get this winter. We even had some snowfall, which is hilarious in the south. Everyone loses their minds, forgets how to drive, and every business and establishment closes for the entire day because of a small dusting. I get a kick out of it.

The cooler weather here does give me a chance to bust out some outerwear and layers that I wouldn’t otherwise get a chance to wear, so that’s an upside. Yesterday we escaped the bitter cold for some lattes at my favorite Nashville coffee shop, Steadfast in Germantown. nashville winter

I ordered this suede trench coat from Lulus last month and didn’t know if I’d ever get a chance to wear it without sweating, so I’m glad I was able to get some use out of it for the week. It’s super comfortable and more lightweight than I expected. I may be able to get a few more wears out of it when I return from my work trip. I’m also obsessed with these high-waisted black pants. They’re stretchy and are actually high-waisted, they don’t just claim to be.

I’m heading to Charleston on Wednesday for another work trip and can’t wait to stroll down Rainbow Row and take in all of the charm. I think it’s the most adorable city ever. I’ll be staying in an Airbnb in Isle of Palms and have some evening activities planned downtown, so if you have any recommendations on things I should check out, please let me know!

Have a great week, everyone!

December is sliding by quicker than I can keep up with it. I was actually thinking about taking a month-long hiatus from the blog so that I could focus on some other big projects and work deadlines, but I realized it would be more effective to just put more of an effort into my time management. I need to get better at juggling multiple things, and what better time to start than now? black velvet jumpsuit
Last night was Nashville Ladies Wine Club #6 hosted at my friend Carli & Julie‘s house and it was our biggest turnout yet. It’s always my favorite evening of the month and I’m so happy to see how it’s grown into something more than just drinking wine and eating snacks. I’ve met so many amazing girls in Nashville and every month gets more and more exciting. I was also gifted a selfie stick from my lovely friend Greta because she got a kick out of me trying to use hers for the first time last month. Watch out, world!

I bought this black velvet jumpsuit right before the CMA Awards because I flirted with the idea of wearing a jumpsuit to the event. That was before I fell in love with the red wine colored crushed velvet dress I ended up wearing instead. So this little number became my go-to holiday party outfit. It’s so comfortable and festive.

I love the simplicity of jumpsuits because I don’t have to put a whole lot of thought into piecing together an outfit at the last minute. I just throw on some jewelry and accessorize a one-piece outfit. It’s the best.
