Style Inspiration: Nashville Right Now

I spent the weekend in Nashville, listening to bluegrass jam bands, googling “Where do Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman hang out?” and eating way more BBQ than any human being should consume in such a short time period. It was glorious. I loved the city, and was totally inspired by the fashion, which is such a fun mix of feminine southern belle style and edgier, trendy pieces. Read on to find out how to get the Nashville look for yourself…

Heeled Boots: Boots of any kind were predictably ubiquitous, worn everywhere from dingy honky tonks to swanky boutiques. This sassy stack-heeled style is so cute with jeans or dresses. [$60, DSW]

Aviator Sunglasses: The most popular style of sunnies, these add a bit of masculine edge to even the most prim and proper outfits. [$99, Nordstrom]

Distressed Skinny Jeans: Perfect for tucking into boots or dressing down a sequined jacket. [$33, Charlotte Russe]

Shawl Sweaters: Though the sun was shining for most of the weekend, I saw quite a few women breaking out their cozy fall sweaters early, and damn did they look cute. [$30, Target]

Lace Dresses: Flirty, feminine, and ready to be toughened up with a pair of cowboy boots. [$55, Modcloth]
