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!
