When I travel, I like to fully immerse myself in the culture and fashion of wherever I am going. Nashville was probably the easiest packing I’ve done. To complete my Nashville look, all I really needed to purchase was a pair of cowboy boots and a cowboy hat. Yee-Haw!

Make sure that the outfit you are traveling in is comfortable, but try not to look like you just rolled out of bed. When picking out my airport outfits, I choose the bulkiest shoes and clothes that I plan on bringing and wearing on my trip- that way I can save some space in my luggage. For Nashville, I wore my cowboy boots (which otherwise would have taken up half of my carry-on), cowboy hat, a Free People tank, and tied a plaid shirt around my waist in case I got chilly on the plane.

For a laid-back and comfortable look for a rainy night, throw on your Airport outfit and add a chunky necklace and heeled booties to dress it up.
When walking around sightseeing, I like to keep it simple and comfortable. If you want to wear a t-shirt and jeans, opt for a piece of jewelry to dress up the tee. This outfit can go from day-tripping to honky-tonkin. (Top: Topshop, $25 Bag: Nordstrom, $32 Shorts: Target, $20 Necklace: Nordstrom, $22 Hat: Target, $17, Boots: Target, $40)
A versatile dress like this one by Astr (Nordstrom.com, $68) is perfect for a night out dancing at your favorite bars on Lower Broadway. I loved this dress so much, I bought both patterns! Dress it up with a cute wedge and a blazer or kimono. (Boots: Target, $40-Sold Out)
A crop top is an essential for your Nashville trip (just take it easy on the BBQ the day you wear it). I am loving this Topshop fringe crop top . Just pull on your favorite denim shorts and a funky necklace and you’re good to go. If you’re not sure if you can pull off a crop top, opt for a high waisted pair of denim or a high waisted skirt to offset the length. (Top: Topshop, $48, Necklace: Nordstrom, $22)
I have a love-hate relationship with rompers. Sure rompers can be a pain, (try wearing one when you’re pounding down beers and peeing every 5 minutes) but how cute are they?! I chose this paisley lace romper from Akira, $60 and wore it with a white bandeau and a handmade crocheted necklace.
If you’re still struggling on what to pack, grab the basic threads and when all else fails, add accessories!
