Emily and I woke up bright and early and drove to Nashville. We made it to the Country Music Hall of Fame in plenty of time to see our friend Libby finish her half-marathon. She did so well! It's inspired me to do one in November with Emily (I know...I don't claim to be completely sane). Anyway, we left Libby to rest for a while and we went to the flea market to see Kaelah with her Honeybean! I didn't have the good sense to find out where on the Fairgrounds they were located, so Emily and I walked around for a while...and there was PLENTY to look at.

I am not even kidding when I say the LAST booth we came to in the entire flea market was Honeybean. I had tweeted to Kaelah in despair just seconds before I looked up to see it sitting there in all it's glory. Am I surprised I walked around the whole flea market before I found them? No...The sad part is that it was really close to where we walked in, I just didn't walk down that particular row.
BUT IT WAS SO WORTH THE WAIT!
I introduced myself and chatted with Kaelah and Mike for a few minutes and then hit the racks. I found a great blue pencil skirt, a men's mustard button down, and an adorable handmade hair bow. I think I'm going to wear the skirt tomorrow, so an outfit post may be in order.
This was a soft opening for honeybean, so I'm hoping to go back again soon! She said they would have other designers and sellers participating, so there is sure to be tons of variety. I love the shopping environment and the aesthetic of their booth. I always appreciate it when people carry out a "look" in every aspect of their business, which I definitely think Kaelah and Mike have done.
Emily, me, Kaelah
Yes...I'm wearing a tank top and jeans, but I was walking around outside all day, so I'm excused I hope. What you don't know is that I was radiating "outdoor smell." You know the one...it's not pleasant. I hope my odor didn't offend (though I'm almost positive I wasn't the worst smelling person out there. This is the South after all). Anyway, Kaelah looked absolutely adorable, as usual! This was my first time meeting a blogger in person, and it was so fun! Kaelah and Mike were so much fun to talk to, and hopefully I'll run into them again soon.
If any of you guys are local, stop by and see them at the flea market. They're nice people, and they're selling some great vintage and handmade! If you're not local, you can certainly pop over to her blog and say hi.
