Nashville Style Blogging Scene: Fall Trends in Fashion at Opry Mills

Last night I attended my second Opry Mills fashion blogger night hosted by the fabulous Milton White, a Nashville fashion (and beyond) scene icon.

It’s always fun meeting new bloggers and Nashville has an amazing fashion blogger network. Heck Nashville has an amazing BLOGGER network that encompasses so many niches. Now while I’m not a full-time fashion blogger, I am a blogger and I love fashion. I’m also a firm believer that moms over 40 can be both fashionable and stay within budget!

Here are three overall fall trends in fashion that I took note of:

  • COLOR

  • LEATHER

  • WESTERN INFLUENCE

Can you tell which one of these trends has its roots right here in Nashville? I also noticed a lot of embellishment still (think boots and bags with bling), wedge boots, and subtle touches of animal print. There was also this fantastic Free People buffalo plaid type coat that had an awesome Mad Men retro feel and incredible gold buttons.

Fall Fashion Brandi Cyrus


That lovely long-legged blogger to the right who chose the coat for her fashion challenge is none other than Brandi Cyrus. I actually realized that when I got home last night and looking through Instagram pics. She’s older sis to Miley and a well-known fashion blogger.

Brandi participated in a fun 60-second styling challenge in which three bloggers’ names were pulled from a hat to participate. They had, you guessed it, a minute to put together a look from the evening’s fashion trends rack based on a theme such as Girls’ Night Out or Dinner and a Movie.

As you can see from my outfit last night, I am embracing the color trend! These can’t miss me yellow jeans are from the Banana Republic outlet store at Opry Mills and I bought them a few months ago for a whopping $12….my kind of price point people.

Here are more pics from last night which featured styles from Opry Mills’ stores. I always hit Banana Republic, but I loved some of the trends from Off 5th, White House Black Market (where a rich burgundy is the color of the season), and Coach.

You Play, They Protect: Tech Armor Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is closed. The winner is Stephen Carter. Congrats Stephen!

My family is definitely wired. My girls and I love our iPhones and my husband is an Android dad. Because of the nature of our work (I’m a social media/digital media strategist for a marketing agency and he owns his own IT services company and is COO of another tech company), we can’t afford to be off the grid.

Tech Armor recently sent me a box of great accessories for our iPhones.

One of my favorite Tech Armor products is the dual USB charger. It’s perfect for charging our iPhone and iPad at the same time. I don’t know about your house, but it seems like chargers and free outlets are a rare thing! It’s only $10.95, comes with a 10-year warranty, and ships for free. That’s a trifecta of awesomeness right there ya’ll.

Speaking of chargers, Tech Armor also carries great dual USB chargers for your vehicle, which is something we never travel or commute without! Plus my girls and I can keep two phones charging at once, no backseat squabbling or whining… “Mom, I need to charge my phone!” And speaking of free shipping, Tech Armor offers free shipping within the U.S. I love me some free shipping! Tech Armour strives to make your shopping as painless as possible and also goes an extra step by offering a 30-day money back guarantee on their products.
