Nashville, Venus & Mars & A Blogger Meetup!

As you all know over the weekend Jonny and I traveled to Nashville, TN. On Saturday we had the pleasure of meeting Lauren of Blooming Leopold! Jonny and I met Lauren for coffee at a great cafe called Bongo Java. We had a blast chatting over iced coffee and getting to know each other!



After coffee Lauren took us next door to Venus and Mars, the vintage shop Karen Elson partly owns. Venus and Mars was my dream vintage shop come true!


Lauren tried on some adorable 1950's dresses. The girl looks fabulous is anything she puts on!

Then I spotted my dress! A little gingham number from the early 1960's.


We also met Lauren and her hubby Neil Sunday night for some more coffee drinking and chatting. I really had a fabulous time with Lauren and Neil! Lauren is one of the sweetest, funniest and joyful girls I've met! I love knowing that I'll be seeing Lauren in just over a month when we make our move to Nashville. I know we'll be hanging out lots more! Thanks Lauren for showing us around Nashville and being such a blast to hang out with! See you soon! ;o)

So much happened over the weekend, but I don't want to talk your ear so I'll give you a little list...
*Jonny and I found a perfect little apartment in a fun part of Nashville
*Our new place is walking distance from Anthropologie, a Betsey Johnson store, Whole Foods and so much more!
*While shopping at Anthropologie our first day in Nashville I was shopping right next to Karen Elson!!!! No kidding!
*So much good food and coffee!
*Good music
*Lovely landscapes
*Oh just so much wonderful!

I'm not sure if you reply to comments, but I was wondering if Jonny's your husband or your boyfriend? Sorry, I'm curious to a fault. =( I've been reading your blog for a while but I don't think you ever mentioned it. Don't answer if I'm being to nosy. xD

Oh how fun! I love Lauren! She inspired me to learn to sew on a sewing machine (I used to sew only by hand). It looks like you two had so much fun and I am totally jealous of that vintage shop!

Aw, blogger meetups are so fun! Love the shorts outfits you both are wearing and do you end up getting that sweet '60s dress? I'm also envious of your straw purse, it's the perfect summer bag. :)
