My Big Move to Nashville -- What I've Learned

Hello everyone!

I've missed my blog so much. If you didn't know, I recently made a move from Connecticut to Nashville for a job promotion with Nordstrom! I've always had such a passion for the fashion industry, and I'm trying to get as much experience as possible in all different aspects.

Moving to a new city where you don't know anyone is very challenging. Especially as you get older. I'm not transferring schools where there are a bunch of kids my age. I'm not in college where everyone has a fresh start and looking to make new friends. I'm in a professional setting, in a new place, where everyone already has their life started.

Moving away puts a lot of pressure on a person; but to me, in a good way! It has taught me so many things, such as...

1.) Becoming independent and learning what makes me happy
2.) Learning to do things for myself and not settling for anything less
3.) Cutting ties with any negativity that was surrounding me
4.) Keeping the relationships I have with the people I love, strong
5.) Realizing who I really want in my life
6.) Most importantly, growing up and learning how to support myself, especially in tough times.

Of course I'm homesick, sometimes sad, sometimes really happy, and sometimes confused. But I'm 23. I don't need to have everything figured out, and I only have one life to explore and enjoy new places. No regrets.

To anyone debating whether or not to make the move to a new place, you can do it. It's a great experience! Give it a chance, a real chance. You'll never know what it's like if you don't.

Now... Here are some pictures I've taken since I've moved here!

OOTD: Casual w/ JORD Wood Watches

Hey everyone!

In my last post and on social media I mentioned I had a few collaborations coming up, and here is one of them! Today I teamed up with a wonderful company called JORD, which is a wood watch company. I have never seen anything like them, and I was ecstatic when they asked me to review one of their products. 

When you receive it, it comes in a wood box wrapped around a small pillow (so cute!). You can even get it sized before they send it to you with a printable ruler, which is very convenient! 

I styled the watch with a casual look by the river because it is a wood watch, which connects well with nature (of course). Here's what I wore for the bike ride!


Top: Forever 21
Shorts: American Eagle
Sneakers: Chuck Taylor Converse
Watch: JORD Wood Watches
Sunglasses: Michael Kors

JORD Wooden Watches
Hope you enjoyed this post, and let me know if you decide to purchase one of these watches! Send me a picture on social media:

Talk to you soon, thanks for reading! :)

Update | Graduation, Tonsil Surgery, New Job, & Upcoming Collabs !!!

Hey everyone!

I have had quite the month so far... So let's take it week by week:

April 29th- I have finally gotten my tonsils removed. I had strep throat 12 times since the beginning of last year (ouch) , so it was time!

First week in May - Finals (any student knows that is a 24-7 week of studying and getting ready for the end, especially seniors!). Not fun/easy while on pain medication by the way...

Second week in May- Slowly getting out of recovery and I GRADUATED!

I'm finally fully recovered, and back on my feet! I'm starting a new job with Nordstrom as a Retail Management Intern to learn about the retail process and running a store. Who knows, maybe my clothing line will open back up in the future!? ;)

I also have a few different collabs/reviews coming up on the blog with great companies that I really think you guys will like. They all fit my style so well, so if you like a modern, edgy, contemporary or street style type of style, then make sure to follow my social media to see when they're posted! @jennaleeannllc -Twitter and Instagram

I also did a lot of shopping recently (as a present to myself for graduating of course...) so I hope to get some outfit posts up very soon!

It makes me so happy to blog again, and I can't wait for you all to see what's coming up!
