Currently Coveting- Festival Goodies

Hi there. How's it going? Are you in full festival mode like I am now that Spring is in full swing (hello Jazz Fest this weekend)?! Well, if you are... or you aren't quite feelin' it yet, here are a few pieces to help you get a little bit more excited. They've all been swirling around in my dreams since the weather finally hit the 70s mark a few weeks ago. Seriously, FINALLY.

1. Forever 21 Romper - Fitted rompers are perfect to pair underneath something flowy and see through like...
2. Free People Romper - This romper which can be worn for so many different occasions. It's a swimsuit cover up, it's a sexy number for a night out with friends, it's a comfy, cool get up for your next festival frolicking from stage to stage, it's even pj's. Yep, do I even need to say it? I totally already bought it.
3. Free People Backpack - You can't go wrong with a leather embroidered backpack for all the free swag you'll accumulate + all the supplies you'll need while festing for hours in the hot hot heat (wow, remember that band???).  
4. Pixie Market Bra Top - I'm really digging bra tops right now with interesting architectural straps. Another staple to wear under something sheer.
5. Pixie Market Espadrilles - If you're short like me or just want some extra height to see over the crowds while watching your favorite band a flatform is a smart choice. It'll give you inches without killing your feet after a full day of walking... and dancing of course.
6. Modern Vice Booties - I can't tell you how long I've been lusting over these booties. Those studs, that suede. So perfect. I think a bootie like this (or a cute pair of sneakers) is the ultimate way to go at festivals. They're comfy, cool, and will keep your feet protected from other feet, mud, sludge, puddles, dirt, grime, etc, etc, etc.

Happy festival season! What festival(s) are you going to this year?

P.S. Did y'all see the ACL Lineup? It came out yesterday morning along with tickets going on sale as well! I have to say I'm super pumped. Lana, Spoon, Jagwar Ma, Real Estates, Jenny Lewis, Phantogram, and my new obsessed Iggy Azalea (who just dropped her new album, The New Classic, yesterday) just to name a few. Maybe I already bought first weekend passes... Ok, who am I kidding? You know I did.

April Showers


It's April. My favorite month... Here are a few reasons why:

1. My birthday which was last week and I celebrated thoroughly, of course- Went to dinner and a comedy show at Cap City. We saw JR Brow and he was hilarious. If you're from Texas you would especially love him. I was dying laughing. Amazing.
2. Crawfish boils- Need I explain more?!
3. Great weather for outdoor concerts- Went to Grouplove w/ MS MR over the weekend and going to see Local Natives tonight.
4. Jazz Fest- Yes, I'm going again this year. Wasn't planning on it but last minute decided crawfish bread, live music and the humid, muggy April weather just couldn't be missed. 

Speaking of that, in true April fashion we've had a good bit of thunderstorms this month. But yesterday and today have been beautiful. Something about perfect 70 degree weather can make just about anyone happy, am I right?? I'll be pretty busy for the rest of this month, but hoping to be back on more of a schedule in May and through the summer... But who am I kidding? I don't think I've been on a schedule since I moved to Austin almost two years ago. It's like one thing after the other with my life... Just the way I like it.  So if you don't see me around here as much these days don't fret, I'm just busy gurl. I'll pop in every now and then. Thanks for sticking around and happy HUMP day!

SXSW 2014 Recap


Hi. Wellll, how time flies when you're have much too much fun, right?! There was Mardi Gras, then I got right back to Austin just in time for SXSW. And can I just say, O.M.G. I'm exhausted, but these past few weeks have been such a blast. South By this year exceeded my greatest expectations and I'm so happy about it. We discovered new music, enjoyed some old favorites, made new friends, played with animals, got our faces painted, drank a lot... of coffee, of course ;) and got little sleep. SO. Worth. IT.


Then there was my favorite day at The Beehive hosted by The Wild Honey Pie music blog. These humans are awesome. They put on a killer showcase with some badass decor (um, gold painted honey bear chandeliers anyone??!) and introduced me to so many great new bands. One being How Sad. They are so wonderful, y'all. Check them out. They were super nice and their new singer/tamborine cutie, Camellia and I were basically best friends by the end of the day. They made me wanna dance (check), become best friends with them (basically check), jump around (yeah, check), and learn the drums (well... I'll work on that one). Besides How Sad I discovered a lot of great new music throughout the week and I'm so thrilled about it. Check out the playlist I put together of some of my faves I saw during my 10(ish) day whirlwind at SXSW!

My Go-To Mardi Gras Attire

I'm currently on my way to New Orleans for yet another Mardi Gras. I'm pretty sure I tell myself every year I'm not going to go this time around, and then I think about the beads, the friends, the bars, the food, St. Charles Ave, parades, drinks... Should I keep going? So needless to say, I caved yet again.

This year, and lets be honest, every year, I go for comfort. But comfort doesn't have to translate to sloppy and ugly, ladies. This 'fit pretty much sums up my go-to. Simple, comfy, yet stylish. A light jacket, cotton top, jeans, and most importantly, comfy (but still cute) shoes for ALL the walking. SO MUCH walking. Mardi Gras might be the only event where all you do is drink and eat but could possibly lose a few lbs because you NEVER stop walking. Bring it on, Bacchus bitches.

Have you ever been to Mardi Gras? What do you wear??

Outfit Details: Top- Sheinside / Jacket- Madewell / Jeans- Current/Elliott (on sale) / Shoes- Keds

Weekend Review


1. New jacket I picked up on a whim at Forever 21 this weekend. Such a great, light weight piece for this 70 degree weather we've been having lately :)

2. Saturday was National Margarita Day so naturally you could find me at El Alma off Barton Springs. Hands down my favorite margarita in Austin.

3. After margs we hit up the Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. show at Emo's. They were a ton of fun and brought bubbles, lots of bubbles. I LOVE bubbles, a lot. Great show.

4. I went to Miguel's Imports on Sunday to get a pot for the succulents I bought from Tillery Street Plant Co. a while back. Nice selection of Mexican pottery + it's all 20-50% off right now. Score.

How was your weekend??
