Yesterday, I had the pleasure of visiting the Berry Hills community. This fun, free spirited community, located just south of downtown Nashville, is lined with boutique shopping and homes that have been converted into independently owned restaurants.
My afternoon started with lunch at Baja Burrito, which is not just another burrito joint. This place features an extensive menu of fresh ingredients (similar to a Chipotle) in a fun, inviting setting filled with vibrant colors. They feature a great outdoor space, which is perfect for dining during the cooler months. If and when I’m in this area, it is certainly going to be me go-to spot for lunch!
After filling my stomach, I made the short drive to Designer Renaissance for a little consignment shopping. If you live in or around Nashville, you enjoy fashion, and you have not been here, you are definitely missing out! This resale boutique features anything and everything you could possibly need. While most of it may not be “in season”, there are many timeless wardrobe necessities in the store, all at affordable prices. As their sale items rotate out monthly, I think it’s pretty safe to say I’ll be taking my lunch break in this area frequently to ensure I snag the best items!
Of course, living in the south, I’m no stranger to exceptionally hot and humid days. Being the heart of summer, it usually rains frequently in the afternoons, amplifying the dreaded humidity factor. While it hasn’t rained in almost two weeks, the humidity still manages to plague the area. Yesterday was no weather exception! (Hence the two block drive from Baja Burrito to Designer Renaissance!) So to brave the heat & humidity, I chose a casual outfit and attempted to dress it up a bit with accessories.
