I went to Nashville last weekend, and when I was preparing, I was so excited to have some warm weather. I was planning which tank tops and sundresses I could pull out for the trip, and I’d even started a pile on my bed … and then I checked the weather.
We were supposed to have a sunny, warm day our first day there (a high of 75), but then it was supposed to drop 20 degrees overnight. And drop another 15 the next day. So then I spent a solid 20 minutes trying to figure out what the heck I was supposed to pack for that kind of range!
In the end, I went for a mix of the two extremes. I had a tank top, a pair of boots, and a winter coat, but mostly, I had pieces that could go either way — jeans, cardigans, short sleeved shirts, etc.
This is one of the outfits I wore on the trip, and I’d originally planned to wear flats with it. But it was way too cold, so I pulled out my boots instead. And it made all the difference.
| Top: Old Navy, similar for $11 | Cardigan: J. Crew Outlet | Jeans: LOFT | Necklace: Target, similar pendant (if you’re feeling crafty) | Boots: Franco Sarto via Ross, similar here for $36 and here for $30 |
This top was possibly my most-worn item last summer. My sister gave it to me for my birthday, and when I pulled it out of the package I was like, “Ugh, Hannah bought me clothes that she would wear.”
And that was true. But the top was also really cute, and it pushed me to try a new style that I thought I wouldn’t like. And now I can’t get enough of it. Go figure.
Thanks so much for reading!
