Recap of the boujiest Bachelorette Party in Nashville

This past weekend, me and eight of my best friends took to Nashville to celebrate my last bash before the big day (59 days away!!!)

It was such an incredible time getting to relax, let loose, and enjoy each other’s company. Nashville is also the coolest place to do so!

I had never been to Nashville, so I was excited to see what all the hype was about. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. It is such a gorgeous, lively, entertaining city! I will for sure be going back sometime soon!

We arrived in Nashville around noon on Friday. We went to lunch at Monell’s, a family style, southern food galore restaurant! They have multiple locations around Nashville. This was such a fun experience, getting to try food out of our comfort zone and being seated with random people! (Side note- one thing I will have to say is everyone we met in Nash was so nice!! From Uber drivers to random people on the street, we definitely met the best!) Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of my food because the restaurant is strict about no phones (phone DOES NOT eat first here!!)

The weather was slightly chilly and we took full advantage by breaking out our fall sweaters.

After that, we went to a little bar called “GOAT” that was within walking distance. Here, we toasted a few drinks while a few of the girls went back to the house to decorate and set up! We stayed in Germantown which was also a highlight of the trip! We had a view of the Nashville skyline and were only a $7 Uber away from Broadway (aka where all the bars are!)

Now here comes the fun! We get to the house and are blown away by the beauty and glitz of it. If you know me, you know I am definitely boujee to the max! The house did not disappoint. Here are a few pictures I snapped:

My maid of honor/sister, Kirsten, went above and beyond with the decorations and personalization. We each had a cute bendy straw with our name on it, as well as personalized tattoos and koozies for the weekend.

I had a different sash for every night, as well as a tiara! #goals img_3622.png

After drinks, snacks, and games on the rooftop of our house we began getting ready for our night out. My friend Allie did my hair and I absolutely loved it!

The weather was up in the air all week on whether it would be hot or cold. So, when buying my outfit, I decided that a long-sleeved romper was the way to go. You can buy it here. The white booties I actually bought from Target clearance for $9 the day before!! Shop them here. I am glad they were such a steal because they are pretty much destroyed from our night out on Broadway 🙂

We had to rely on self-timer for group pictures… Here are all of my girlies looking gorgeous:

That night we went to dinner at a super fun and lively Mexican restaurant, Saint Anejo for dinner. The margaritas were amazing and STRONG!

After dinner, we hit Broadway, and unfortunately, that is where the pictures for Friday night end😂. Needless to say, it was an amazing time.

Saturday morning we woke up to an amazing brunch spread that Kirsten prepared. She got bagels and homemade cream cheese from Proper Bagel (AMAZING- highly recommend!!!) We relaxed and rejuvenated in the hot tub, in matching hats, with our mimosas and bloody Mary’s. My bikini top is from Target, on sale for only $16! Shop it here.

Next, we got ready, had a lingerie party, and hit Broadway for day two!

My purple flare pants were definitely the biggest hit of the weekend. I’ve linked a similar pair here. 

This was probably my favorite afternoon, dancing along to live music, eating good food, and drinking too much at Nudies Honky Tonk, which is evidently the longest bar in Nashville! Another place we really wanted to go to but was closed for the day is Acme- good food, drinks, rooftop bar.

At 6:30 we headed to our pedal bike tour location. If you’ve never done a pedal bike tour you MUST put it on your bucket list. It is the most fun, singing, drinking, and pedaling your way through any city. Ours stopped at different bars along the route, and even a candy shop!

After the pedal bike tour we ended up at Hattie B’s, famous for her hot chicken. The pimento mac & cheese was also to die for!!!

This concludes Beks Nash Bash! I have to give a shoutout to my sister, Kirsten, for planning such a spectacular weekend and for all my friends for making me feel the most loved and celebrated! If you get the chance, go to Nashville!

As always, comment or DM me with any questions!

2018 Fall Shoe Trends

Happy Tuesday, lovelies! While I know the temperatures don’t necessarily indicate that it’s fall, the first day of fall is less than a week away (September 22nd)!! I am sharing a few of the must-have fall shoe trends for 2018, all of them under $100 (with the exception of one pair. See if you can spot them!!!!:)

Shop my complete look here:

Over-the-knee boots are still in, PRAISE THE LORD! I love how flattering + fun they are to wear. Here’s some of my fav’s under $100:

 

Animal prints are trending… Like, if you don’t have leopard in your closet this fall, you may be the only one! Heres a few of my fav animal print styles:

Ankle boots are still a thing, especially if they’re white with a chunky heel. The more “out-there” the color, the better. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites for the “everyday girl.”

Sock booties. Are they a sock? Are they a boot? The world may never know. What we do know, though, is that they are super comfortable + I am going to need more of these in my life.

Sneakers. While I am usually very preppy with my style, I also love a good sneaker. Sneaker wedges are also one of my all-time favorites! I am so happy I finally discovered them + gave them a try this season. You should, too!!

 

As always, comment or dm me with any questions. I love to help <3

The two most requested schools were USC & Clemson. I’ve got you covered for all your outfit inspo needs. I will start with summer-fall transition pieces and then gradually move into more fall/winter items. I know the first few games are always blazing hot and I want nothing more than to be wearing a light dress!

Coziest Fall Sweater

Hi Lovelies!

Last week we got a little taste of fall with cooler temperatures and that got me so excited for all things fall: sweaters, booties, hot chocolate & most importantly the cold! I recently got this cream color cardigan from Roots and Sparrows online boutique, and let me tell ya’ll, it is amazing. So fuzzy, cozy, and the perfect fit! I wanted it a little oversized, so I am wearing a size medium.

Shop it here for only $35:

I know I have been pretty absent on Instagram and lovelybeks.com recently… and I am so so sorry about that!! I just wanted to give a quick update on what I have been up to!

First, I began my job in the ICU and I have loved it so far. It is the most challenging obstacle I have taken on, but I have learned so much. And only in 3 weeks!! I am so excited for the rest of my nursing career.

Next, Holden and I went apartment shopping and after touring manyyy places, we finally settled on the perfect place. I get the city feel I wanted and he gets the location he wanted! It is in the cutest shopping center with a barre studio, Chuy’s, Whole Food, Panera, and a Haagen Daas. Sooo, yes I will be needing to frequent that barre studio😉

I plan to post a whole blog post on the process of decorating the apartment and the finished product 🙂

I will be moving in towards the end of September, and then Holden will move in after our wedding 🙂 Speaking of our wedding, we ran into a few hiccups in the planning process and are still trying to work through them… I would so appreciate a prayer that everything works out!

Sometimes it is so hard to trust in God’s plan. A friend recently shared that we should not worry about things that are out of our control. And this resonated so much with me. I tend to overthink situations and stress myself out. But really, God wants us to trust in Him. So I am making this my personal goal for the week.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

Other fun things happening in my life:

I am going to be an AUNT!! I am so excited!! I am one of twelve kids, but surprisingly, this will be my first niece/nephew! Of course, she will be spoiled by everyone in my family. I am already beginning to shop for allll the pink and frilly dresses!

I am hoping that when I move into my own place I can begin to prioritize blogging again, take more pictures, find more sales, and give y’all the content you want. Thanks for sticking with me and supporting me. It means the world.

XOXO
