Well I just got back from a fun weekend in Austin at the Texas Style Council. The weather was pouring cats and dogs on our drive to Austin and for the most part of the first two nights, but things cleared up enough for us to enjoy the last two days of the trip to shop in nice, breezy weather. I took lots of pictures and met some cool and amazing bloggers and got some awesome swag to take back to Houston.
day 1: The night started out with a bang at the Swap Party, where everyone was dressed to impressed even though it was pouring rain outside. I scored a beautiful hand-dyed scarf and a cute nude colored dress from Lulu’s that I can’t wait to wear! My friend Trang, from Myth & Symbol, who accompanied me on the trip along with my sister, scored this beautiful coral romper. The pearl detail on the collar really sealed the deal on this dress. We ended the night with dinner at Hopdoddy’s to chow down on some of the best burgers in town. If there’s one thing I really love about Austin, it’s definitely the food options. The portions are just right, and nothing leaves you feeling too bogged down from all the grease.
Every motel and hotel was booked for SXSW, so it was a sweet surprise to have been able to book this quaint little place. The drive was only 15 – 20 minutes from downtown, but two beds and gated security was all I could ask for. Definitely planning further ahead next year!
