*Thanks to my friend, Chris Borchetta for my new #NASH #EGPStyle photo!*
It is WAY past time for another blog... SORRY I was MIA for a bit! Here's a little about how I've been LIVIN' & LOVIN' #NASHville!
It's the beginning of award show season and that has me firing on all cylinders to say the least!
I leave for Dallas, TX on Thursday for the 50th Annual ACM Award Show weekend and that has me in outfit planning and suitcase packing mode. #whoareyouwearing ? You know the drill! I am going to be ready for #redcarpetradio in a real way this year! Cannot wait! Stay tuned to my instagram and socials for all things #ACMAwards!!! Lots of amazing designers and outfit combos to share... courtesy of @hampedclothing I'll be dressed to the 9's #wearinghampden!
Speaking of what to wear... I got a little bit of time with my sister, Emily yesterday afternoon while she was visiting Nashville for the day with her husband. We hit up Hillsboro Village for some tea lattes @bongohotandcold. While we were there, it started raining so we decided to make our way in and out of some cute stores down 21st Ave. Our first stop was #tennesseechic! I knew they carried a variety of t-shirts by Nashville based company - Project615.
I wanted to see if they had anything new, so Emily and I made a stop. That's when I found my new raglan #CashIsKing shirt... obviously referencing THE Johnny Cash with his silhouette prominently on the front! I love it! Wanted to share with you what Project 615 is all about and also where you can get some bomb country tshirts and tanks in time for summer fun!
"Project 615 operates as a full service custom t-shirt, apparel & screen printing company. We believe in empowering and transforming the formerly homeless and turning them into better citizens of society and for God's Kingdom. Project 615 employees men from Set Free ministries where we train them and give them the skill of t-shirt making/screen printing."
I love that Project615 gives back in such a big way to Nashville's homeless community. This charity does a beautiful job not only feeding fish, but teaching the homeless and needy HOW to fish by providing job training, cultivating skill sets, and preparing them for a new future. They work to get individuals to a place of sobriety and off the streets of music city by offering an opportunity learn Christian teaching and hear the gospel - this is HUGE! What an impact they are making for Kingdom business!
I have been sporting some of their looks since last summer...

After Tennessee Chic, we made our way to The Impeccable Pig !
My newest favorite accessory is a bit of a throwback to the 90's.
I used to make little seed-bead bracelets, keychains, and zipper pulls during recess, or after I was finished with my "seat work" during school! These little gems are WAYYYYY more professional (thank goodness!) And if you haven't fallen in love with Lily & Laura already... glad I could help!
