First off, thank you for all of your kind words after my post last week. All of your comments and emails meant so so much to me, and I’m so glad that the post echoed what so many of you were thinking.
After the craziness of last week, my getaway to Austin couldn’t have come at a better time. One of my best friends and I drove down for the weekend to see my parental units and to go to Austin Opera‘s production of The Flying Dutchman. My friend had never been to Austin before so we had to have the most jam-packed weekend basically ever. Dinner at Elizabeth Street Cafe, tour of Rainey Street, “Dirty” 6th, and West 6th on Friday; breakfast tacos at Whole Foods HQ, walk around Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake for all you non-Austinites), lunch at Walton’s Fancy and Staple, and then the opera on Saturday.
We accomplished oh-so much… Now I need a vacation from my vacation!
What I’m Wearing:
Shirt: J.Crew / Pants: J.Crew / Boots: Tory Burch / Earrings: Ann Taylor
Purse: Zac Zac Posen (also available via Rent the Runway) / Ring: BaubleBar
As we were driving back to Dallas, I spotted this gorgeous field on the side of the road right in the midst of magic hour. I think I scared the bejeezus out of my friend as I quickly veered over to take pictures. #blogger problems Unfortunately, my friend had never operated a camera before so the photos of this plaid button down didn’t turn out quite as planned… but what can ya do, right?
