I’m very excited to team up with Piperlime today as apart of their Summer City Guide, highlighting a few of my favorite spots in Nashville and what what I wore on my most recent visits! Since moving to Nashville only two years ago, I have quickly fallen in love. From the city that lacks nothing…great food, good shopping, warm faces, beautiful landscapes, and of course, the music. If you haven’t already visited, put it on your list!

Although Nashville has many great coffee houses, CREMA, has always been my go to. The atmosphere, drinks, food…you won’t be disappointed. I typically stick to just a fresh roast or the Masala Chai tea, however every once in awhile I treat myself to Coffee Soda – carbonated coffee mixed with a rind of an orange. The citrus and fizz are a great combo…definitely recommend trying it!

I’ve always loved the simplicity of the t-shirt dress. Basically the equivalent of a well tailored nightgown that’s acceptable to wear in public. Who wouldn’t go for that? I decided to throw this army vest over last minute because I love the green and navy mix, however, it’s substantial enough to be worn alone as well. I finished this look with Piperlime’s  summery Belle sandal. This sandal is by far my favorite summer flat I have. I’ve been on the hunt for several weeks now and was sold the moment I saw them (second to the Isbabel Marant and Vince sandal I almost went with). They are worth it!

PS- I will be taking over Piperlime’s Instagram (@piperlime) this Wednesday and hope to have you following along!

Another favorite spot…The Patterson House. This is a mandatory stop for anyone visiting Nashville! Good food, incredible atmosphere, and the best cocktails in town! “Up To My Knees” is my favorite drink I’ve tried so far, but I promise you can’t go wrong. We stopped by here last week and grabbed cocktails before heading to dinner at City House (another one to put on your list). I decided to go with Piperlime’s flirty DVF dress paired with Joe’s Jeans black heel.  I fully anticipate getting a lot of wear out of each of these pieces this summer! FYI- a leather blazer looks amazing with this dress. If it wasn’t already in the 80s here, I would definitely have a blazer with it. In fact, that’s exactly how I’ll be wearing it in London next weekend!

Here are my favorite blazer options from Piperlime (all on sale too!): French Connection, Haute Hippie, C.Luce

Thanks Piperlime for letting Happily Grey and Nashville be apart of the Summer City Guide!

  1. Hi Mary! I’ve been following since day 1 and love to see your transition and success.
    Love your confidence and your unique style.

  2. So glad to hear you are enjoying Nashville!
    i love both dresses,
    the first one is striped which means it instantly won my heart,
    the second one has such a nice cut! not to mention the awesome print.

  3. Hi Mary! Love that vest…about to buy but wanted to see what size you got?? Debating between a XS and S…thanks! xo

    1. Hi Melissa!
      I got the small however it does run a little big on me. I am 5’8 and generally a size 2. I would probably go down a size if your in between. =)

  4. hi!

    just curious what city are you originally from? Been to Nashville only once but loved it when I was there too 🙂

  5. Great post – always inspired by your fantastic style! I actually have that green vest, but had only really thought to style it with denim… Love how you layered it over a t-shirt dress!!

  6. How do you think the moto vest would look on a woman with a smaller size D chest? I want it so bad but I worry it won’t look good.

  7. I’m so glad I found your blog–love your style! I just moved to the Nashville area recently as well. Do you have any recommendations for good hair salons? I’m nervous to try someplace new. Thanks!

  8. I came to your PIPERLIME CITY GUIDE | Happily Grey page and noticed you could have a lot more visitors.

  9. I love your brown marc jacobs purse but can’t find it anywhere!! I know this was a year ago but do you by any chance remember the exact name of this purse?

  10. My brother recommended I may like this website.
    He was once totally right. This put up actually made my day.
    You cann’t consider just how a lot time I had spent for
    this info! Thank you!
