It's been a bumpy December so far. But I haven't really got a right to complain. I have many gifts that money can't buy. The love of a good man, the bond of true friendships, the devotion of my dogs, and the desire to be a better person every day.
And, when I feel overwhelmed I can dress local from head to toe and enjoy the holiday lights around Nashville.
You know I love my town and the blog is filled with posts and pieces at every price point from all over Nashville. This outfit is all about local love. Vintage camel wool cape and Missoni sweater from Pura Vida Vintage, Audrey animal print jeans from Beija Flor, Vanelli ankle boots from Marmi Shoes, and copper bracelet from Simon and Ruby.
Shop the instore or online sales at Sunnyband, Daisy Alexandria Designs, Trunk, Any Old Iron, Opium Vintage, Pura Vida Vintage, Little Luna Vintage, and Couture for a Cause. Marmi Shoes. Llynda More Boots and Xpandasox are worth an online look as well.
We're lucky to have a list of wonderful local makers, designers, and boutiques - some of which you'll recognize from previous posts - courtesy of the Nashville Fashion Alliance.The NFA is dedicated to making Music City the South's Fashion capitol as well, through advocacy, economic development, shared resources and education. You'll hear more about this ground-breaking organization in 2016.
12th & Broad also have a few great local gift suggestions that are sure to please, not just for Christmas, and not just for others. Because a little self-care during this time of year can go a long way.
What are you doing for yourself this holiday season?
