We’re Going To Nashville!

Tomorrow morning we are boarding a flight to one of my favorite cities in the US… Nashville!  We are so excited to be back to the music city for a few days and we have some really exciting stuff planned. On Wednesday we’ll be meeting up with some of our beautiful FP Me ladies who live in the area for a photo shoot downtown, followed by an outdoor dinner party with the lovely Ruthie Lindsey and Beth Kirby! I’m such a fan of these two talented women and their work, so I’m thrilled to finally meet them in person! The evening will be capped off with live music from Sugar and the Hi Lows. The following day we’ll be exploring the city before we host another backyard session with one of our favorites, Cotton Jones! Keep your eyes peeled over the next couple days because if you live in the area, you may have a shot at attending the session!

Got any tips on things we should do while we’re in Nashville? leave ’em in the comments!

I love living in Nashville!! This weekend is the flea market and there are a ton of vintage and thrift stores. You must go to Santa’s Pub eat at The Pharmacy and go hiking at Radnor Lake. Also go to The Tavern for brunch and Pinewood Social to eat and go bowling!!

Sadly you will be getting to Nashville the day before I leave for my own trip! Sorry I’ll be missing you – have a good time, Nashville is a great place! Go get coffee at Frothy Monkey on 12th South. Very cute and tasty.

-Mas Tacos Por Favor for the best food ever

If you’re Hangry(angry due to hunger) drive a few minutes out of the city to Fontanel Mansion where you can have a delicious meal and more: music, zipline, concerts, Barbara Mandrel’s Mansion tour, Prichards Distillery and to top everything off, the Southern Living Idea House is on property at Fontanel.

Visit Jack White (of the White Stripes, Dead Weather, Raconteurs)’s record shop, Third Man Records. The Frothy Monkey for coffee. Burger Up for the best burgers in Nashville. Belmont University (which is right by Frothy Monkey) has an old, beautiful mansion on campus that you can tour.

Go to Third Man Records!!! Also, kinda touristy, but check out the Ryman Auditorium. It has beautiful architecture and is full of history. Nashville is one of my favorite day trip spots.

love the what to pack clothes!

Eat at the wild cow(vegan and amazing and affordable) or silly goose in East Nashville. you have to try a las paleta(gourmet ice pop.) Grimeys Records is a must for any vinyl fans. Try and see a bluegrass jam if you are there at the Station Inn and the Family Wash is the best dive bar with music. Best venue is the Exit-In.
Best Vintage spot is Katy K’s.

-Breakfast at Loveless Cafe and take a picture in front of the sign (totally touristy but you gotta do it!)
-Lunch at The Pharmacy

-Sushi at Virago (sit outside!)
-Margaritas at Rose Pepper
-Go out on Broadway and don’t miss Tootsies
-State Park
-Katy Perry Friday night
-Go out in Midtown
-Interview me for the stylist position! :)

-barista parlor (east nashville) may be my favorite coffee shop in town! they make their coffee very scientifically and boy, it is delicious. the atmosphere is also unique making the experience all the more better.
-centennial park (near vanderbilt) is also a favorite spot to chill or throw the frisbee around.
-baja burrito (berry hill) is my favorite restaurant in town!
-12th south is up and coming as well as east nash…oh and the gulch! (you may even spot a few celebs around there)
-speaking of the gulch, two old hippies is a wonderful place for boho/hippy styled clothes, home dećor, jewelry, and furniture.
-there are tons of awesome farmers markets around the city with great music, yummy food trucks, lots of farmers with fresh fruits and veggies, and many homemade natural products.

hope this helps!

I just screamed. Cannot believe y’all are coming to Nashville this weekend. I follow this blog religiously. I don’t comment much, but I just want to say thank you for continually inspiring me. Anyways, I live outside of Nashville, BUT I work at the Johnny Cash Museum on 3rd Ave, seriously right off of broadway. If y’all have time to kill on Thursday i’ll be working & feel free to stop by! It’s an awesome museum – just opened up last summer :)

Also I saw someone else comment about it but this Friday, Saturday, Sunday is the Flea Market at the TN State fair grounds. Ya’ll picked the best weekend to come down because the Flea Market is just about the most rad event of the month. The outside booths have amazing vintage scores & random trinkets and what-not: doilies, patches, pins, shoes, old books, all for $5 or less!

Don’t miss Third Man Records. You can make your own vinyl & there’s a photo booth. Broadway is neat for pictures with that real country/ honkey-tonk feel… East Nashville is awesome as well. Honestly you really can’t go wrong with food in Nashville, I absolutely love Sugar & the Hi-lows so I’m just going to sit here and cry and wish I was on this weekend trip! Hope the weather stays nice for y’all ~

Thank you for all the suggestions! Chloe maybe we’ll stop by :)

Emma -June 24, 2014, 7:24AM

I’ll be visiting Canada in September, I’ve not been since I was 3 years old so I’m super excited to see what the beautiful place has to offer!. Any suggestions on places to visit i’ll be near toronto – check out my site full of quotes, yoga, health and photography posts!

Hatch Show Print (they moved off Broadway into the Country Music Hall of Fame) has really awesome prints and you can see their original printing presses. If you go to Centennial Park, Cafe Coco is really close, they have awesome poutine and vegan chili and cool outdoor seating. And if you’re there on Saturday, you should go swing dancing in the park too! It’s in the pavillion on the Charlotte Ave side of the park. Stop by Las Paletas and grab a Rose mexican popsicle and cross the street and eat it in Sevier Park. Drive down Belle Meade Boulevard to the main entrance of Percy Warner Park. Too much good stuff to fit in in just a few days!
