Nash Trip {Day One: Franklin, TN}

While researching things to do in Nashville I kept coming across reviews for the charming little town of Franklin, TN. Franklin is about a 30 minute drive south of Nashville and completely worth the short trip. The characteristics of the town are so sweet and made me want to move there right away. Every house big and small had character and charm. The town square and main street area were full of  adorable shops and restaurants. We spent the afternoon exploring the city market where we had the best pumpkin sugared donuts from Ellie’s Donut’s Food Truck and checking out local antique, clothing boutiques, and gift shops downtown. We had our first Tennessee meal at 55th South, where I had the most delicious chicken and waffles paired with a moscow mule. I thought my Champagne Amuse Society tank was pretty fitting to get this girls weekend started, you can find it here . I paired the tank up with this classic Copper Key chambray button down from Dillard’s, this button down is so soft and not to mention very versatile. I always travel with my Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Tote, the name says it all as it’s truly perfect for traveling.

I wanted to do something special to let them know just how much they mean to me and how lucky I was to have them with me on such a big day in my life.

From a necklace and earrings to wear on the wedding day to a robe for getting ready, this is what I gave to each of my bridesmaids…
