Chic Tip: Where to Score Name Brand for Less

During quarantine I missed my weekly TJ Maxx runs until I discovered my new best friend, tjmaxx.com. Itโ€™s safe to say tjmaxx.com took my shopping addiction to a whole new level with SO many designer and name brand deals waiting for me online! Their site makes it easy to find exactly what I need, whether it’s a new bikini for vacation or a date night outfit in the city!

I’ve had several requests for western looks lately with the Houston Rodeo coming up and lots of you traveling to Nashville for bachelorette parties. I found several outfits from tjmaxx.com that would be so cute for both of these western occasions including cowgirl boots and everything!

Not only does tjmaxx.com have an amazing selection of designer and name brand fashion but they also have an entire home section as well! I’m not kidding one bit when I say that almost half of my living room decor is from tjmaxx.com, especially all of my designer coffee table books! You can get them for 50% off compared to other retailers that are selling them right now.

With prices this amazing, you can bet items don’t stay in stock too long. You are in luck though because I have a habit of going through the new arrivals section constantly and obviously share all of my finds with you all! See some of my recent home finds below and shop them easily by clicking on any items in the collages.

For as many times as I’ve been to Nashville (heck and almost moved there in 2019!) this post is LONG overdue. Nashville is hands down one of my favorite places. I always have an absolute blast every time that I go so I have no doubt you will have the trip of a lifetime. Good food, great partying and a hell of a lot of fun dancing make for the best memories.

WHERE TO EXPLORE

Broadway– where ALL of the bars (and people) are. Many of the bars are owned by famous country singers. Expect live music, big crowds and drunk shenanigans here. I like staying walking distance from Broadway.
Music Row– bars and restaurants. Come here if you want to get away from Broadway but still have several fun bars within walking distance! Also walk over to The Graduate hotel for a coffee or drink- you wonโ€™t regret it.
The Gulch– come for the biscuits (Biscuit Love), stay for the shopping and pictures with the giant angel wings. Also another good area to stay if you don’t want to be so close to Broadway.
12 South– fun area with a good mix of restaurants, shopping and wall murals. Want a cute Instagram photo? Come here.

WHERE TO STAY

Noelle- I’ve never actually stayed here but everyone RAVES about it. I’ve stopped into the hotel lobby bar as well as the coffee shop multiple times and always love the vibe! The rooftop bar, Rare Bird, is also supposed to have a great view plus it’s walkable to Broadway!
Thompson Nashville- Located in the Gulch it’s an absolutely beautiful, hotel with modern music touches. My only complaint- no bath tubs ๐Ÿ˜› Other than that it’s a great location.
Westin Nashville- Great location (downtown near Broadway) and very upscale for a Westin! If you are looking for a more budget friendly option than some of the others, this is a great choice and the rooftop bar is AMAZING.
Bobby Hotel- I stayed here on my most recent trip to Nashville and the rooms are definitely a little funky when it comes to decor but overall it’s so much fun and all of their food and dining is top notch.

WHERE TO EAT

@libertycommon- Located near Broadway. We went for a late brunch (HH starts at 2) and thought it was so darn cute. Made for the perfect start to day drink on Broadway!
@thehamptonsocial- Located near Broadway. Although this is a chain it’s still a fun spot especially if you’ve never been! It features the iconic “Rosรฉ all Day” neon sign. Suggest going for a boozy brunch but honestly you can’t go wrong with lunch or dinner either!
@bartacolife- Located in 12S. I go here every single time I hit the ground in Nashville it’s that good! First things first- amazing spicy margs! Also all of the menu and ordering process is virtual so you order everything through an app and it’s delivered to your table in a matter of minutes. Excellent food, decor, and service!
@henrietta_red- Located in Germantown. I keep wanting to try this cute stop but still haven’t made it. I had to include it because it comes highly recommended for their simplistic, chic decor and fresh ingredient dishes!
The Southern- Located in South Broadway. If you are looking for a nice dinner spot, look no further! Amazing steak and oyster options plus it’s a short walk to Broadway if you want to go two step the night away after! And if you go for brunch don’t pass up the ribs. *chef’s kiss*
@pinewoodsocialist-Located in South Broadway. This is a popular instagrammable spot featuring delicious menu items as well as bowling in an industrial-chic atmosphere. Great for large crowds!
@urbangrubtherestaurant12south- Located in the 12S area. The BEST brunch in Nashville by far. You will die when you see the buffet spread is insane (oysters, crab legs, shrimp and grits, plus the regular breakfast fare). Heads up- donโ€™t order the โ€œall you can eatโ€ buffet option (it will set you back $50!)- just get the โ€œone timeโ€ buffet option and pile that plate as high as it can go! Scott and I didnโ€™t realize how expensive the unlimited option was and both of us ended up eating only one plate!
@biscuitlovebrunch- Located in the Gulch. You absolutely can’t come to Nashville and not indulge in some biscuits. Lots of places have them but Biscuit Love is arguably the best. They also have good drink specials.

WHERE TO DRINK

@lajacksonbar – rooftop bar in The Gulch. Great vibes and always a good crowd not to mention the view is INSANE.
@fglhouse – Florida Georgia Line’s Bar on Broadway that NEVER disappoints. Love day drinking here.
@acmenashvilleย – located on Broadway. We usually stop and get food here but itโ€™s also a fun bar!
@whiskeyrownashville– one of my favorite bars on Broadway. We always end up here especially later in the evening! The third floor (rooftop) always has a DJ making it a fun spot to dance.
Tootsies– you canโ€™t come to Broadway and not go here. One of the oldest honkey tonk bars!
@zeppelin.nashville – rooftop bar off the beaten path. I forget what the shot is called but you must get the edible flower shot- it makes your whole mouth numb (in a good way lol).

Losers– total dive bar but SO much fun. Seriously I saved the best one for last. They have a bar next door called winners but it’s way more fun to be a Loser;)
@whitelimozeennashย – cute rooftop bar. Located at the top of The Graduate hotel. If you can make a reservation for brunch- do it!
