Today I’m sharing 11 outfit ideas for a trip to Nashville! My boyfriend and I spent a week in Music City in early December, and these are all the outfits I packed in my carry-on suitcase—yes, all 11 looks fit into one bag. I didn’t buy any pieces for the trip and tried to come up with country western-inspired outfits straight from the items already in my closet. There’s lots of denim, neutrals, and even a little bit of fringe. Be sure to check out my What We Did in Nashville post first so you have a better understanding of where you can wear these looks!

November is always one of my favorite months of the year (because of my birthday, duh) and this year was no exception. It’s hard to believe I’ve already made it another trip around the sun… 23 in all! Sheesh, how did that happen?! I started Graceful Rags when I was just 16, to put it into perspective. And the other day somebody asked me about an event in my life to which I responded, “Yah, that happened almost two decades ago.” Decades. Funny that I can even say that. I haven’t dreaded getting older just yet… In fact, I think I have really been thriving in adulthood. I always used to fantasize in college about the days when I wouldn’t have homework anymore and would be able to go do fun things after work. And now I’ve been doing just that—post-grad life has turned out to be everything I ever imagined!! Continue reading “November 2022 Month in Review”
