Holiday Shopping with Vera Bradley

| Photos | Catherine Truman Photo

Black Friday & Cyber Monday have come and gone and although I did accomplish some of my holiday shopping on both days, I still had some very special people on my list to shop for!

Recently I headed to downtown Franklin, TN to finish my holiday shopping!  As you know, and may agree, shopping is much more fun (well...and relaxing) with a Starbucks in hand.  So first things first, hot spiced caramel apple cider!

I spent time shopping for our kiddos as well as a few other special people on my list.  I was on the hunt for a few new ornaments (we give a new ornament to our children each year), some new family games, a candle, and a unique accessory or two.  With so many great shops & boutiques in Franklin, I had no trouble finding that "perfect gift" for those on my list.

My Vera Bradley agenda helped keep me organized and on track...I made my list and checked it twice.  I also carried my Micro-Stud Harper Clutch, which is the perfect size bag for a day of shopping!  And my outfit wouldn't be complete without both my Soft Fringe Buffalo Check Scarf, which is my absolute favorite scarf, and my Pave Loop Stud Earrings.

It was great to spend the day shopping locally in such a charming little I only have a little more shopping left to do!  Have you finished all of your holiday shopping?!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
