Nashville 1st Anniversary Trip
On May 26th Brian & I had our first weddng anniversary.  To celebrate we visited Nashville, TN the weekend before.  We stayed with our friends Beth & Kory on Friday night where we met their pets including their cat with one green eye and one blue eye!  That night they gave us a driving tour of Nashville then took us to Love Circle.  We ended the night with Jeni's ice cream & very late night conversation.  The next morning they took us to brunch at Pinewood Social.  That place is downright beautiful, delicious, and genius.  They are open all day & have a bowling alley!  In the last photo they were giving us tips and directions on what else to do.

Our AirBnB was perfect & came with Goo Goo Clusters.  Yum!  After checking in we headed to a street fair at Morgan Park that Kory & Beth suggested we check out, mostly for the Grilled Cheeserie food truck.

The fair was completely worth going to because 1. the Weinermobile was there 2. there was a photobooth in an old VW van called the Shutter Bus and 3. the Grilled Cheeserie met all of our expectations.

The next day we started out the day at Red Bicycle Coffee and Crepes.  We visited some vintage shops, and our favorite was Pre to Post Modern.  We also visited the pretty touristy places downtown including Hatch Show Print.  We picked up some prints for our apartment, too.  I'll be back with more photos later.  I took wayyyy too many for one post.  Nashville is rad.  ♥ Mallory
196 Days
I just checked my countdown app.  It is 196 days until I marry Brian!!!!!  Until then I will blog, work on projects for A Beautiful Mess, style assist at MyHabit, launch my Mallory online store, go to Disney World, create my senior collection, graduate with my bachelors degree, finish wedding projects, and have some fun in between.  It's going to be a very full 196 days!  Love, Mallory

p.s. Thank you all for the kind words and prayers/thoughts for my family after I shared online that I lost a cousin last night.  I have some encouraging friends, family, and followers.
Senior Collection Design Process
A few weeks ago I met up with two of my classmate friends with our senior collection sketches and mockups.  We met at the downtown Coffee Emporium to talk it all through.  Deb is working on a workout wear collection inspired by lingerie, and Megan's working on a very artistic, ethereal collection inspired by trees.  As I'm sure you'd expect from me, my collection is wearable and a little mod.  All three of us couldn't be farther apart, so our different viewpoints are really fantastic to talk things through.  I got a lot out of our little coffee date.

I have my four looks pretty well chosen, though I need to think a bit more about accessories and jackets.  The only thing I'm unsure about in my mind is my color scheme so I've ordered lots of swatches from Mood.  I'm sure there will be a teal/turquoise color in the mix because I never feel complete without it, but the rest I'm unsure.  It's my big debate.  Though, if that's my biggest worry I feel on track.  I take that back, I still need to find 4 models... but I'll make it work. xo, Mallory
