One of our stops in Nashville was Moda Boutique. Located in Nashville’s trendy 12 South area, Moda is a house-turned-boutique that carries cute clothes, jewelry, and gifts. I loved the look of the boutique with its fun purple paint and stepping stone walkway. The clothes were pretty nice but what really drew me in was the jewelry. I’d been eying a few pieces from Consider The Wldflwrs (see their matte stacking rings on my spring wishlist), and since the brand is from Nashville, I thought something from them would be a fun souvenir.
I ended up buying a couple of rings from local designers. The one on the left is the Sparkle Ring from Christina Kober (I also debated on getting some of her fortune cookie pieces). It’s a fun twist on a simple stacking ring design. Moda did have some of Consider The Wldflwrs’ Matte Stacking Rings but unfortunately none of them were in my size. I did leave with their Slvr Twist Stacker though. Stacie also bought a Slvr Twist Stacker and a pretty gold bracelet which I believe was from CLP Jewelry.
I’m really happy with my purchases. They are both simple enough to wear everyday and easy to stack with other rings. I love the delicate bands with interesting textures and I really love the story behind them. It’s much more fun to say, “I picked that up in Nashville,” than, “I bought that online from a Nashville designer.”
Right next door to Moda is The Frothy Monkey Coffeehouse. Stacie had heard about it but never been so we decided to pop in and see what it was all about.
It was late afternoon when we went and we were hungry but not ready for dinner. To tide us over we split the Lucy salad and I ordered a chai tea. The salad was really good. It was made with mixed green salad, feta cheese, candied walnuts, and port marinated berries and was served blood orange vinaigrette and toast. The chai tea wasn’t anything remarkable, just a regular chai tea that was perfect for the weather outside.
Overall these were a couple of fun places to see in Nashville. The 12 South District is really nice and we actually went back during our trip. Moda had some really cute pieces and I’m really happy with my souvenir stacking rings from Nashville. The Frothy Monkey was a great spot for an afternoon pick-me-up and just what we needed to stay energized for the rest of the day. These are two places definitely worth checking out if you’re in Nashville!
