Citygram Magazine's Animated Summer Fashion Lookbook

One of my favorite things about Austin is that I'm constantly surrounded by creative people, creative content and innovative local businesses. Austin is definitely "ahead of the curve" and a great example of this is Citygram Magazine which is a local mobile, interactive publication. They feature influential people in the community, local businesses, food, music, and of course fashion, just to name a few.

The mag has just released their July issue with a new feature fashion lookbook. It's unique because it's both interactive and animated, offering readers a new and improved way to view a style series. It's super cool and definitely worth a look. Not only that but if you live in Austin Citygram it's a great source of inspiration and offers an up-to-date connection to the wonderful community that is Austin, TX!

Graffiti Graffiti

Hey there! I'm back from what I think was a couple months hiatus. Basically I've just been enjoying another amazing Austin summer. How about you?

We hit up the graffiti park this past weekend along with a couple other magical places which I'll be sharing here soon. If you are ever in Austin you should definitely visit this spot. It's real purdy to look at and of course fun to take photos of.

Happy to get back to blogging a bit. I know my many fans have been anxiously awaiting my return ;)

Outfit: Top- Forever 21, Skirt- Zara (similar), Shoes- Sperry Top-Sider, Bag- Forever 21 (similar), Necklace- Vintage

My Weekend- Camping, Music, Austin Psych Fest

Happy Friday! I'm going to Austin Psych Fest this weekend and I couldn't be more excited about it. I've never been and also I've never camped out at a music festival before. I haven't done much camping in general so this should be perfect since it's a little more like glamping... regular bathrooms, showers, a convenience store on site with food, drinks, supplies, and oh yeah, festival grounds with amazing music and food/retail vendors right across the way. BUT, I will be sleeping in a tent. No AC. On the ground. With only a polyester zipper opening separating me from the outside world. If that's not hardcore roughin' it, I don't know what is. Feel free to refer to me as outdoorsy from now on. What are YOU doing this weekend?

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!
