I’ve had my eye on this jumbo floral print for some time now and finally decided to take the plunge. The bright hues just wouldn’t leave me alone. The fact it feels like an oversized nightgown is bonus. I think the bright colors gives it a summer feel, however, I can’t wait to wear it through the fall. Just throw a leather blazer over and a black heel or bootie and your ready for a fall night.

We shot these images downtown yesterday at the new convention center. It’s incredibly beautiful and definitely worth visiting if your in town! We have been in Nashville now for one year and it still feels like a vacation…love this city! Thanks for stopping by…have a great day!

  1. I love your style, but I have to admit that a large part of the reason I read your blog is because you live in Nashville. I went to college there and have MAJOR nostalgia for it 🙂 PS – Where is your leather jacket from? It’s gorgeous!

    1. Thanks Laura!! I LOVE LOVE Nashville! My husband is doing a residency here and we’re supposed to be moving back to Texas once it’s done, however it’s getting more and more tempting to just stay. Such a great city! My jacket is BCBGMAXAZRIA (haley is the style name). I looked online for it and unfortunately was unable to find it anywhere. I did post some other leather blazer options in my recent “Pre-fall” look. Hope you find something you like! Have a great day!

  2. I love your blog, another stunning outfit! I am visiting Nashville for my first time in August, any recs would be greatly appreciated! Keep hearing Etch?
    Thanks!

  3. YIKES! The shoe shot is gorgeous! Worth every penny!
    Not a floral fan myself, but when you pair it with leather and spikes…..I’m suddenly reconsidering.

  4. Love this look! That dress is stunning and I love the way you styled it. Love love Nashville… we hope to move there someday!

    1. Thanks Jacy!! I’ve been obsessed with this dress for awhile. I definitely think it’s one of Kate Spade’s more fun/funky prints! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Sunday!

    1. Hey Lindsey! I couldn’t agree more…I”m ready to throw on all the layers! This jacket is one of my favorite pieces! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Too many good things, I don’t know where to start! Love this color palette…so bright and bold. Beautiful statement earrings too…and I like how you mixed a splash of leopard in the clutch. And the leather jacket adds some edge to this feminine ensemble 🙂

    1. Thank you Veloria!! You are too sweet! Adding the jacket and studded heels was my thought exactly to adding some edge. Thank you so much for following along…I always see your name in my comment section. I greatly appreciate it! Have a great Sunday!

    1. Thanks Annie! I think it will be a great piece through the fall…tights and a bootie would work too! Thanks for stopping by! =)

    1. Hi Kim! The jacket is BCBGMAXAZRIA. Unfortunately it is unavailable now. I got it at the beginning of last season. I did list other leather blazer options on one of my recent post “Pre-fall”. I hope you find something you like! Thanks for stopping by…have a great Sunday!

    1. Hi Jenna! Sorry I am just now getting back with you. The jacket is BCBGMAXAZRIA and unfortunately it’s from last season. I looked online for it but was unable to find that exact style.

    1. Hey Courtney! For the delay in responding. The jacket is last season BCBGMAXAZRIA “haley” is the style name. I looked around for it, however, I believe it is unavailable now.

  9. I absolutely adore this outfit! Where is the jacket from? I’ve been looking for one like this to add to my wardrobe (I love my moto jackets but this is such a lovely alternative).

  10. Your style is fantastic!! I love that you don’t shy away from colors, patterns, rocker-chic elements!! I’m so tired of muted, neutral, blah blah. There is a time and place for everything, I supposed. Your style is fun and happy and feminine! Great stuff.
