OOTD | Nashville Hot

With all this talk about the upcoming eclipse, I imagine that half the country is making their way down to Nashville for a first class seat!  That’s where I hear you’re supposed to be able to have the best view, since Nashville is one the major cities within the path of the eclipse.  Not to worry if you miss it though.  At least you won’t have to wait another 30 years again, since the next one is expected in only 7.  😉

Well, if you are one of the lucky few that’ll get to experience the eclipse in Nashville, here is an outfit inspiration from my last trip down there.  I was actually lucky enough to spend the 4th of July in the heart of Music City, and it was a complete blast.  The chicken was hot and the days were even hotter!

But no matter where you end up, remember to protect your eyes!  Even if you think your sunglasses are cute, I’ve read that you need special protective shades if you want to watch the eclipse.

Nashville Hot Outfit

This top was perfect for the summer heat.  The cut is loose with swing sleeves and doesn’t cling to your body.  Check out my DIY post to see how I updated the front ties.

Cold shoulder top – normally not this wrinkled 🙂

Blue purse and sunglasses

The shades I wore here are cute, but not solar eclipse appropriate. The brand is Circus by Sam Edelman. I actually found them at Ross for a steal!  The purse is Betsyville by Betsy Johnson.

I got to go to the Nashville hot chicken festival.  Prince’s hot chicken was hands down the best! 🍗🔥

Hope you have a fun and safe solar eclipse weekend!  Remember to hydrate and wear sunscreen because I’m sure it’ll be a scorcher. 🔥

One of the hardest lessons I ever had to learn in life was when to move on. Challenges are not easy by any means. If they didn’t test your will, they wouldn’t be considered hardships. Swallowing your pride and moving away from a situation that is not healthy or is not going anywhere shows strength. Removing yourself from the negative is probably the best thing you can do to live a more fulfilled life.  It is not a weakness by any means.

You were meant to live a happy life. You were meant to learn, create, explore, and enjoy all the wonders that life has to offer. You were not meant to be in miserable relationships or dead end jobs.  Learning when to let something go and move on isn’t a sign a weakness. In fact, it’s the opposite. It takes a lot of courage and awareness to know when something is not healthy for you and to move on.  To not let situations or people hold you back or keep you stagnant.

Haven’t you ever spent time in a situation that when you look back on you think to yourself, why didn’t you just let go of it sooner? That maybe it wasn’t worth the time and effort that you spent, it was petty, or maybe you didn’t want to let go because it was a matter of pride?

I truely believe that once you you learn how to remove yourself from negative situations/people, you learn to not lose sleep over the petty things. You start to have a better appreciation for the good. The good moments in life start to feel even better! You start to love life even more and life loves you right back.

I’m not saying that moving on is a magic solution that will make things better for your life. It’s that moving away from the negative forces you to perform some retrospect on the situation and gives you a better appreciation for the positive.  It makes the smaller things more meaningful. It will slowly start to help you realize what is most important to you, and that, in turn, gives you the strength and confidence to make better decisions. I’m telling you, once you realize what you love, it becomes easier to not let petty or negative things get in the way of your happiness.

Learn to love life. It’s waiting to love you back.
