I love Austin, it’s quirky and special in its own way. My sister and brother-in-law live there and I visit them on a semi-regular basis and everytime I do, there is just not enough time to shop all the shops and to eat all the food I crave.  Continue reading “Austin Loot”

Casual Glitz

What does one wear to a 3PM wedding? I have been trying to find an excuse to wear sequins lately and wanted to wear my new sequins skirt to our friend’s wedding. Given it was an afternoon wedding and mostly outdoors, I dressed it down with a blue dress shirt and wore shoes with a chunky acrylic heel to give me steady footing on grass.
