12th Ave South- Swing Dress and Shades

This weekend my boyfriend and I wanted to check out some of the new places on 12th Avenue South.  This area is similar to East Nashville in that it is growing quickly.  Our first stop was a place that had been open for months but I hadn’t had the chance to go yet.  It’s a cute shop called Draper James.  Reese Witherspoon started Draper James online and then opened her flagship store here in Nashville this year.  If you are a Reese Witherspoon fan you should totally read the Draper James blog here.  These pictures don’t justify how truly cute the store is!  If you live nearby you should check it out.  They even give you free sweet tea when you walk in the door.  Here are some of my favorite items I saw in the store!

// Hello Sugar // Draper James Tote // Totes Y’all //

Here are a few shots of the inside of the store.

Next door they opened a cupcake shop called Sprinkles.  We didn’t eat one because we were on our way to grab lunch but I still had to sneak a peek at what they had to offer.  Looks yummy doesn’t it!!

Next we went to lunch at a new place (I wasn’t kidding about the area really growing!) called Bartaco.  It was great.  We ordered chips and salsa, as well as two rice bowls you can see below.  It was the perfect combination of healthy and tasty.  They had an assortment of tacos and rice bowls to choose from.  They also had some great drink choices.

I would recommend it. See below.

It was a gorgeous day outside.  We walked down the street and then left to get ready to meet some friends out later (at a new Vegan restaurant called Avo that was actually pretty cool).  I wore a black Free People dress and carried my sweater because it warmed up.  This dress is great for many reasons.  For one, it has pockets woo hoo!! It is free flowing, flattering and comfortable.  I also like the cut out in the back! I paired it with some leggings, flat booties and a Kendra Scott necklace.  I feel like this piece is simple yet fabulous!!
