Since I already had to go into downtown Nashville for some tests at Vanderbilt University Clinic my Mr and I decided to finally go to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts to see the Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age exhibit. We had planned to go to the opening a few weeks ago but, as it often does, life happened and we had to postpone.
Most of the pieces in this outfit aren’t anywhere near new. The cap-sleeved, turtleneck sweater dress by rabbit rabbit rabbit petite is four years old and was purchased at Stein Mart . It’s fairly heavy and happens to be my favorite shade of dark, lavendery violet. Likewise the Peck & Peack plum and grey reversible leather jacket was purchased during a big sale at Stein Mart. It’s a lightweight leather that, I must confess, I’ve never worn on the grey side. The leopard Sugar boots are only a few months old from Shi by Journeys at Cool Springs Galleria. They are very comfortable and timelessly stylish but at 3″ heel height are as high as I can go and still stand up. The Gracie Lynn butterfly sequined watch is also new from Stein Mart and is my nod to Nashville style. You’ll never see me wear sequins in the traditional, Nashvillian sense, but I love to reference the city’s glitzy tendency in select pieces of my wardrobe.
After the museum my sweetheart and I went to a romantic dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in West Nashville. I’ll talk more about that in my next post which continues the “Passionate About” theme for February.
Thanks again to Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for the Visible Monday linkup.
