Greetings from Austin, Texas everyone! The hubs and I are here for a work cation (meaning the hubs is working and I’m vacationing ;)). And when I say vacationing, I really mean eating everything I can possibly fit into my stomach! The husband went to college at the University of Texas, Austin so this city has a special place in his heart. I have to admit I love the vibe of this fun city and there are definitely a lot of cool places to see and delicious food to eat. Here are some of our most memorable meals in Austin so far:
(left to right, CW: (1) John Mueller Meat Co – the brisket was delicious (2) Qui – shareable plates, get the toast and short rib (3) Dolce Neve – yes those are gelato bars..hmmm… (4) Mettle – the cauliflower and steak tartar were my favorites)
Now for some fashion! For traveling in the spring/summer time, one of my must pack items is a comfortable romper. It’s great because it doesn’t take up a lot of luggage space and also because you can dress it up or down. Just add the right accessories to your romper and you can easily change up the look. I’m a big advocate of dressing appropriately for your environment.
I have a slight obsession with rompers, especially in the spring and summertime. This drapey romper from Urban Outfitters just makes me feel sexy and lazy at the same time. I just want to lounge around in it’s soft material but at the same time go running through a field of flowers. It’s the perfect spring romper and I have never been so ready for warm weather, luckily we get quite a bit of it in SoCal =P.
And no I don’t usually look like this when I’m hanging out at home lol…I wish or the hubby wishes =).
Happy Monday everyone!!! Ok so the weather has been unusually warm here in SoCal lately (high of mid-80’s) and my closet is so confused right now. I may have a teensy bit more clothes than closet space (I’m not sure why my husband just won’t surrender his side of the closet to me) which means I usually pack up my summer clothes in storage boxes in the winter and swap them in the summer and vice versa. I just bought this super cute romper from Urban Outfitters and decided to embrace this splendid warm weather. This romper makes me feel really girly so I paired it with my favorite handbag – my gorgeous rose pink Louis Vuitton Alma bag. I bought this bag for myself on my second trip to Paris in 2010. I went to the flagship LV store on Champs Elysee and immediately fell in love with my idea of pink perfection. Unfortunately the sales lady told me there was only one of these left in all of France, but luckily for me it was only 10 minutes away. So I ran off to find her and bring her home with me to the States (I think I was smiling the whole plane ride home with her on my lap). My husband still thinks it was the ultimate sales pitch by the LV sales lady but I don’t care – I love her and she’s all mine =).
For you that know me, you know that I love to wear rompers. Besides the inconvenience of having to go the bathroom when you are wearing one (you know what I’m talking about), they are so comfy and stylish for petite girls like me. And only in Southern California can you wear a romper and sleeveless jacket in the winter. Yes it has been cold by our standards but we are a lil’ spoiled. I found the perfect winter romper from Brooklyn Harper in a beautiful burgundy color. I have also been searching for over the knee boots that actually fit my petite frame. I purchased these Nine West boots from Nordstrom and I love the fit and height of them. My legs are happy this winter and I am even happier for this awesome winter weather, even by Cali standards =).
