12th Avenue South

12 South is a cute little street with a bunch of artisan shops and the best burger joint in the city, Burger Up. (Pssss, get their garlic fries. So so good.)


Brooke and I took a day trip up to Nashville last Thursday to dawdle around 12th South. With each visit I make back to Nashville, I miss my home state a little more each time.

I quite like styling up my capsule wardrobe outfit with a bandana. Besides jewelry and purses, scarves and bandanas are one of the things I think of when someone inherits their mother’s (or any other relative, really) wardrobe. I love the idea of being able to pass down a few cherished pieces to my children or grandchildren, this bandana being one of them. No if only I could have inherited some of my mother’s old jeans. But, these  Madewell Jeans are just as good.


In 2016, I decided to venture down path of a capsule wardrobe after feeling like I had a lot of unnecessary clothing, things I never wore or bought because it was on sale. Now, I style a few quality pieces that can be worn time and time again. View how I style these pieces here or shop them here.

    That cute bandana really adds some flair to the look! I know what you mean about how cool it is to inherit some jewelry from past generations of your family–I have necklaces from two of my great-grandmas. Just costume jewelry, but precious to me, and I wear them often!

    Those jeans looks amazing on you! I keep walking past Madewell and see their stuff in Nordstrom and have been wanting to try…. and now I need to. That wash and cut is awesome!

    I love those jeans. After having my son I had to updated several items in my closet. I have two pairs of skinny jeans but I’d love to add a pair like this. The one I’ve had for years no longer fits.

    You’re adorable. I love Madewell, but not their prices – so thankful for thredUP, where I can get their items at a huge discount. The hubs and I are planning a trip to Nashville this September! I’m pumped!

    I’m really digging this outfit. I’d be worried that I couldn’t pull off a bandana like that, but you totally make it work.

    Those jeans are awesome! Love the cut, the color, the fit! Super cute!

    This is a great look! It is a great reminder of what a simple addition like a bandana can do for an outfit.

    We just got a Madewell store in my city a few months ago!! I have yet to buy a pair of jeans there, but I definitely plan to!

      I definitely recommend the summer jean or the high-rise skinny jeans!

    I love wandering around the main street corner and finding hidden gems like this.
