One of my favorite things about being a fashion blogger is getting up close and personal with retailers. That’s why I was so happy to attend the Opry Mills Fall Blogger Reception! Opry Mills has fast become one of my favorite malls in the area. Yes, it’s an ‘outlet mall’ but the Simon company
has worked hard to cultivate an eclectic mix of brick & mortar stores that some customers have only seen online. Today’s event let local bloggers and fashionistas sip tasty drinks while perusing Fall’s flyest trends.
Celebrity Stylist and Nashville native, Milton White, was our style guide for the night. He discussed the trends for the season. Comfy sweaters, graphic print, luxe plaid, leather, and florals (for fall – I know!) where on the agenda. Milton styled some out-of-the box but oh so FAB looks for Fall.

Everything you see can be found at an Opry Mills retailer. Like I say, you don’t have to order EVERYTHING off the internet. Nashville as some fabulous shopping in our own backyard.
One thing about getting dressed for fall is being able to play with texture. Don’t be afraid to mix sequin & leather, fur & lace, or neoprene & suede! Have fun with you fall looks. It’s still warm enough not to be covered with a coat but cool enough to explore layering. Opry Mills would be you spot to try new trends.
Oh yeah, the let us play with the clothes! I got to style a look straight from the racks. I totally fell in love with this BCBG skirt and sheer shirt from Saks Off 5th. The shirt has colorful bugs on it! So fly! I’ve been playing with pattern mixing lately so I thought this would be a good mix.
Of course, I had to take a pic witht he man of the evening. And, yes, I’m wearing my new dress from Dress Barn. I don’t just get these clothes for the pictures! I really wear them! LOL! Plus it’s like my new favorite outfit! We had a ton of fun at this event. I hope you check out Opry Mills for fall.
