Nashville Local: Thread Co.

Yesterday, I popped by Thread Co. with a few friends for their Holiday Sip & Shop. Nestled on the second floor between The Dress Theory and Tempered Cafe & Chocolate in Germantown, it is a bright, cozy space filled with comfortable, high-quality basics. I fell in love as soon as I laid my eyes on their collection and felt how soft and well-made each piece is.

I felt instantly as though their clothing was made for me. I love versatile basics, and just by looking at them, I could tell their clothes would fit like a glove on anyone. I grabbed two items (a warm pink dress and peplum top) within the first minute of walking in and knew I would buy them. I tried them on simply for fun, and was right. They fit amazingly well and were incredibly comfortable to wear.

I felt we had stumbled into someplace truly special. We spoke with co-founders Katie and Gracie who were friendly, kind, humble, and grateful. These are obviously two very talented women. My girls and I were obsessed with everything in the store and each bought several items (it’s affordable, too!).

One of the coolest parts? They can design a custom tee for you! All you need to do is make an appointment.

If you’re a Nashville local, you simply must pop in here ASAP. If you’re not, just shop online! It’s the perfect place to shop for holiday gifts – or just to treat yourself (as we did)!

Love, Bee

Fall Wedding Look

Fall Wedding Look

I went to a wedding in St. Louis this past weekend and was in love with my whole outfit! The dress and shoes were both incredibly comfortable and cute – I got tons of compliments. I had never attended a fall wedding before (crazy, right?) and realized I had nothing to wear! I ordered both the dress and shoes somewhat last minute, but they shipped fast and arrived right on time.

If you’re in need of a dressier outfit this fall – whether it’s for a wedding, cocktail party, or holiday gathering – I highly recommend this combo. Get them here:

The simple and fuss-free dress ($60):

The shoes I wore all night and danced in for hours, and my feet never hurt ($49.90):

Silver Slingback Court Shoes

Hope this inspires you!

How I Decorated My Studio Apartment

How I Decorated My Studio Apartment

My apartment is simple and clean. I love it and feel super cozy every time I curl up on my couch. Although I am certainly no expert decorator, I often get compliments on my apartment and have been asked where I bought certain items. I am going to share how I went about decorating my own apartment. My ideas might be particularly helpful if you are new to Nashville, are moving into a new space, or are moving into a smaller apartment. Here, I’m just focusing on the living room:

Getting Started

Because I live in a smaller apartment, I opted for smaller pieces. I don’t like when a small space is bombarded by big furniture. I prefer the furniture to match the room! I believe this opens up the space and makes the room seem bigger than it actually is.

This may seem obvious, but always measure a room and compare it to the measurements of furniture before you buy the furniture! You don’t want to be unpleasantly surprised by furniture that is too big or too small. If you are moving to a new city and haven’t seen the space in person yet, ask for the dimensions.

Once you start picking out pieces, choose a color scheme and stick to it. I opted for grays and blues and did not let myself stray, no matter how much I liked a piece. I wanted the room to feel soft and cohesive.

Purchasing Pieces

I’ll share where I bought the pieces in my apartment. All of these are well-loved by me, or I wouldn’t recommend them!

The Pillows – I have two sets of pillows on my couch. One set is the Chunky Cotton Knit Pillows from Urban, which are no longer available. The other set is from Target, and they’re so lovely and comfy. I didn’t see the exact set that I purchased online, but I bet you’ll find something similar if you check in stores!

The Plants – Plants really give a room some life! The table plant is from Creekside, and the window succulents are from both Creekside and Trader Joe’s. The vase and artificial white flowers beside the kitchen sink are from Michaels.

Any other pieces you see – the side tables, the TV stand – were given to me by family members. Never forget to ask loved ones if they have any pieces they’ve been wanting to give away!

This is my living room in its true state. I always have a candle (or two, or three) out, usually lit. Blankets to snuggle with drape on the couch. I always keep recent magazines on my coffee table for friends to flip through (and change them seasonally), and I read daily, so there will always be a book there.

It’s important to keep your space true to yourself! It’s your home, and you want to be happy there!

I hope this post helps – Please feel free to ask me anything else about my home or decorating tips in the comments.

Love, Bee
