wedding in Taylor MS

I had no idea how many photos I had to share with you guys – so I’m going to break my #CBLTourdeSouth into two posts!  Today I wanted to share some of the photos I snapped while in Nashville, TN and Oxford, MS!

I was visiting my pregnant childhood best friend Kady in Nashville, and I loved seeing her gorgeous home and world in Tennessee.  The nursery was fully decorated for little Miss Lela, and I can’t wait to meet this lucky baby girl!  While in Nashville we cruised Belle Meade and 12South, and ate dinner at Prima, brunch at Husk and I stuffed my face with white queso at Taqueria del Sol. Dream.

Oxford… where do I even start? We have looked forward to our friends Michael and Brooke’s wedding for months.  Not only do we absolutely adore them, but I also grew up coming to Ole Miss games with my family, so Oxford is a special place.  I attended the University which is were I met Christian.  My brother married my sister-in-law in Oxford, and my sister currently lives there while her husband finishes up his PhD, so her youngest was born there!  My parents have a home in Oxford, so we are super grateful that there’s always a reason to visit and a place to stay. Maybe one day we’ll be a little closer so we can visit more often!  And if we need to bring it back to food – I had to eat at Volta, City Grocery and Bouré while we were there… and we had brunch at McEwen’s (it wasn’t there when I was in college), and I think it was one of Christian’s favorite meals of the trip!

Thank you guys so much for reading and following along! It was so fun to be in the South for such a nice, long trip (and my jeans are a little tight from many meals involving fried food and queso).  It feels good to be back in California, and I know I’ll find a reason to visit again soon! Another round of photos from the trip coming tomorrow – XO –

  1. Per usual, you look just great in every single outfit…but that long pink dress? GORJ-WAH! Just stunning. Looks like you had such a great time on your tour de South – good for you!

    (p.s. still dying/dead over your Mom’s dang bed, I can’t get it out of my head!)

  2. Love all the pics!! Love all your clothes, especially the pink maxi dress!
    Being a deep South girl myself (I’m from the ATL), I love anything to do with the South! Our Son, has been accepted to Ole Miss and will start this Fall. We live in Charlotte NC and just made a trip to Oxford. I immediately fell in love with the campus, town and most of all, the people. It’s so nice to have that level of comfort with your only child being 9 1/2 hours away. The campus was just gorgeous and the spirit of the students was contagious. I can’t wait to attend a football game in the grove. (Even this older women loves a good tailgate!) Hoddy Toddy – Ole Miss Rebels!!

    1. Aww that’s so exciting! I know that will be a challenge to have him so far away, but I promise – he’s going to have an amazing time! You have raised quite an adventurous and mature son to have the courage to go to school so far away. Good for your! Thanks so much for reading and sharing, Lisa! XO

  3. I was just in both of these cities, both such beautiful places!

    1. HAHA – sadly we have matched quite a few times, but I think it’s because I buy all of his clothes!

  4. Taqueria del Sol is one of my favorites! Brisket tacos and queso are the best! I’m so glad you enjoyed Nashville!
