Oh my sweet sweet Nashville, I had the greatest time in your state! Why did I have to come home? I could have lived with you forever and ever (JK), but I totally could have. I had so much fun being a tourist in this state. Keep on reading to see all the places I visited, outfit details and more!
Let me start at the very beginning of this trip. I have always wanted to go to Nashville when my cousin told me that was her territory for work, I invited myself to go with her. I wasn’t going to pass up that opportunity! When I arrived in Nashville I thought the airport was HUGE turns out it’s not that big. Just a new state with a different airport can kinda throw you off you know? Needless to say, I found my way around the airport until I got lost and couldn’t find my Uber driver. I had to walk all around the parking garages but other than that it was a great trip.
My flight landed in Nashville around 9 AM. I got an early flight because I was only going to be there from Monday – Wednesday so I needed to get in as much time as I could. I met up with my cousin at the Airbnb that we stayed at and we got ready to conquer to the day.
First thing first was food, we went to this really cute brunch place called Milk & Honey. It is located in The Gultch. The food was AMAZING, I would recommend that place to anyone. Once we had food inside our stomach, we were ready to go shopping! If you are heading to Nashville and LOVE to shop as I do go to The Gultch. You will not be disappointed. Along 11th Ave, we found Kittenish, yes Jessie James Decker new store that she just launched back in February! Her store is the cutest boutique. A little pricy so you are definitely paying for the name. You already know I had to buy something from her. I love to shop what can I say! After we left Kittenish we walked around the corner to Uncommon James. Yall, Reagan from Very Cavallari was there checking people out! My cousin and I about died. We for sure had a fangirl moment as she even checked us out. We wanted to ask her for a picture but we didn’t want to be those people. After we did all of the shopping we wanted to do. We went back to the Airbnb, changed to go out for the night. Like any tourist we went to NashVegas aka Broadway St. I felt like I was in New York City getting out on Times Square with all of the people. It was crazy busy for a Monday night but then again it was Spring Break. We went to a few bars. The first bar we stopped at was Tootsies. That bar is four stories high. I liked it because the 3rd floor was quiet and that’s my type of bar. If you know me, you not I’m not a big drinker and don’t like to be around big crowds. The next bar on the list we stopped at was Jason Aldean’s Bar. OMG, this probably was the nicest bar I have ever stepped foot in. His bar is also three or four stories high with a great view of Broadway St. We also had dinner at his bar. His food is more of the southern kitchen home cooking. I had the Hillbilly Fish & Chips if you aren’t that hungry I recommend not getting this plate. There was so much food in the basket that my cousin and I could have split the meal.
Taking on day two of Nashville, we hit the ground running! We woke up and got ready for the day. We headed down to Five Daughters Bakery. One of the cutest donut spots ever! If you love donuts as much as I do and love cute photo worthy pictures, you need to take a visit. After we had our breakfast we decided to walk down to Draper James, Resse Witherspoon really outdid herself with this store. I fell in LOVE with the whole atmosphere of this store. They even offer you sweet tea right as you walk in! Once we were done shopping at Draper James, we went to RH Cafe. If you haven’t been to a Restoration Hardware I recommend you visit your hometown store. Each section in the store is set up like a room. I absolutely adore this store and hope my house can look like that one-day #dreaming. RH Cafe has amazing food. I got the Turkey club it was SO good. After lunch, I took my two cousins to one of my FAVORITE boutiques located in Nashville. You might know it, Dress Up. Yeah, it’s my favorite too! I was so overwhelmed in the store that I couldn’t decide which way to go when I walked through the doors. I was in heaven you could say! Later that day we went back to the house and got ready for the night. I found a cute rooftop bar to have a few cocktails before dinner. It was pretty chilly outside so we didn’t really get to enjoy the rooftop as much as we wanted too. Following drinks, we went to have sushi for dinner at Virago. Best sushi I have ever had hands down. If you are a sushi type of person you must try this restaurant. We had an early night for day two because we had to catch a flight the next morning. I was so sad to leave Nashville but happy to be home in my own bed. My cousin and I did so much that I felt like I was there for a whole week!
There you have it, my trip to Nashville! I do plan on going back so if you have any suggestions on where I should go next or what I HAVE to see leave a comment down below. I would love to hear what you have in mind!
