SXSW Monochrome Festival Style

Tuesday, March 25, 2014


Austin's graffiti park is semi-mind blowing. Our SXSW festival style was basically monochrome, so we decided to document it against the busiest montage of art ever. The rain fall hit the mood spot on. Best opportunity to layer a Free People Harness over your box dress OR layer over your leather jacket! Love that this hardware can make any outfit hard.

Next turn - over your delicate summer maxi's for night life.

SXSW Festival Style - Free People

Urban Outfitters Sheer Top
Vintage Coat 
Alexander Wang Bag
Elizabeth & James Sunglasses 

Monochrome. Sheer. Austin SXSW. I've found myself in bliss, tucked under this vintage find at Round Top a few years back. Because a camel coat is a must this season, finding both fur collared and suede, I'd say I won this one. And sheer, sheer you must conquer, as well. Free People, of course, offering a handful. Oh and a top bun. Do it conspicuously and do not care.

 If that is a wrap up - enough. Austin is always a blast, and tis the season, as in SXSW season. We attended weekend 1 and the hype had already began. The weather was iffy, but layering in Austin may be everyone's secret dream.

Beauty Routine

Monday, February 3, 2014

Hello!! So I've been really into beauty products lately. Especially curious who uses what… And what will work for me. I'm only 23, so I have years of trial & error, but these are the items that have been pretty constant in my routines, lately. You can shop these items below.

1. Philosphy. I hate the act of putting on lotion, but I hate dry skin more. This has the cleanest scent & a great feel.

2. I've used this since high school. It's the perfect texture for my naturally curly hair. I comb out my curls, add some type of conditioning element, & spritz this all over. (It's also great to spray over a wet braid, once dry, those curls will stay for days!)

3. I'm fairly new to Aesop, but it's no secret how popular this line is with beauty lovers. I have the hand cream, too.

4. I'm a foundation freak. It is so hard to find my right color. I hate orange tones & pink tones. Chanel has been the only answer. Ever. My mom taught me to apply makeup to blend, less is more, & always look like you don't have any on.

5. NeriumAD has been a deal breaker. After I went to college (and started birth control) I started breaking out terribly. I tried everything. This has not only cured my breakouts but cleared so many scars.

6.  Clarisonic has helped tremendously, as well. We got this in Hawaii & use it every day.

7. I get stuck on signature scents & associate them with times in my life. I think the Gypsy Water may become 2014's.

I'm back!!

Here is the first post in a long while. I've enjoyed the peace with the family though. Especially through the holidays. But also a debut of my new hair! I love it! I originally wanted to go full on blonde, but toned it down with a "sombre."

So on a wardrobe note, here is my latest loves. Husband's sweater, sweater waist (for the tire of flannel waist), Free People Moto Skinnys, Elizabeth & James Boots. These pants have the sickest detailing & I love the zip ankles. These types of things make so many ways of wearing them! I also love them in Fatigue & Moonlight. Be sure to check out all the Free People Skinnys!!
