Travel Diary: Knoxville, Tennessee

Last week, I explored the east side of Tennessee. I'm still amazed at how very different Nashville, Memphis and Knoxville are from each other. Knoxville is definitely centered around University of Tennessee, so it seems like it's a great college town. The landscape there is beautiful with the mountains in the distance. It's hard for me to do a lot of sightseeing when I'm on these trips because I'm in meetings all day and I'm by myself. I also end up with riveting views from my hotel rooms. Like this one...

Not the best view...

It was a fairly mild few days in Knoxville so packing was easy. I like being able to drive because I can pack some different dresses that would take up too much room in my carry on. This floral maxi I found at The Trunk in East Nashville is one of my favorite dresses.

I like to break up the print and toughen this dress up a bit by adding my BCBG leather jacket I found at Flip on 8th Ave. (similar here)

I arrived in Knoxville on Oscar Night, so I wore my finest yoga pants. :) Seriously, I am obsessed with these Alo Yoga leggings. They are so comfortable. This is the one of the few pairs of yoga pants that I don't mind wearing like normal pants. I also always pack this Spiritual Gangster split back sweatshirt. It's super soft and the fit is just oversized enough to not look sloppy.

I found this camel coat at The Trunk. It's the perfect lightweight winter jacket. (similar here)

I'm looking forward to my trip to McLean, VA this week with some of my favorite co-workers. I've never been to D.C., so I'm hoping to have some time for some good food, good drinks and maybe a little sightseeing.
