Caught Spring Fever


Yikes!!!! It's been a complete whole week since I last updated my blog!!  Life has been one big ball of crazy and I haven't even been able to turn my computer on for three whole days.  So excuse the break, please :)  It's now another Friday which means another weekend is right around the corner.  I have so much planned and so much on my plate but I need to keep my free time as busy as I can.  It keeps me sane, at the moment.


So I wish I had many more photos of the Austin trip but it was just so darn rainy I was afraid of getting my camera all wet, so instead of another recap post, I decided to style a cute dress I got from Lulu's at their spin the wheel game.  Apparently yellow is my color at the moment so I had to pick out this cute piece with the giant cut-out back ever.  If there is one thing I like about my body, it'd probably be my back.  So a dress that shows it off is right up my alley.


Lately, the weather has been straight up gorgeous in southern Virginia!! Lots of warm sunny days, mixed with heavy spring showers.  It's barely springtime, and all of sudden it wants to act like summer!!!  I'm afraid that most of my closet will then consist on backless dresses, only because of necessity.  Haha..

Dreary Gloomy Fun Day


Last weekend in Austin, we had to deal with some terrible weather.  Torrential downpours and thunder showers mixed with cold wind.  Not what we all expected, but thankfully I was prepared by packing tons of tights.  This pretty lace dress proved to be a way better match for tights, due to its short hem, so it all worked out.  What didn't work out so well was a white dress on a rainy day.  So it goes...


I wore this during the morning and afternoon while romping around at the Mentor Speed Breakfast and then on a mile long walk towards the South Congress district to eat delicious food and hang out with rad ladies (and their boys too).  Eating migas for lunch and hitting up random vintage, flea, and boot shops made this day absolutely fantastic...despite the rain.


Just typing all this out is making me want to go back so badly.  I don't think I could take the oppressive heat during summer months, but maybe I could totally see myself living there!!!  It's such a friendly town.

While in Austin


Before I give you a pile of photos from my trip to Austin....(which I will by the way)...I thought I'd share with you an outfit I wore to the Texas Style Council. This was the first day that it was actually warm and dry, so I thought it only fitting to wear a sheer white embroidered vintage dress.  This was probably the most perfect dress for a day like that Sunday.  Warm weather like that just puts a pep in my step and I want nothing more than a light-weight sun dress.  The fact that its vintage from the early 60s is just an added bonus.


The TXSC, organized by Indiana, was held in downtown Austin and we were located smack in the middle of all the cool happenings.  South Congress was only a short mile walk away and there were lots of great restaurants and bars and food trucks by our head quarters.  The event itself was really great and I'll be doing a post soon with photos from the conference and tidbits of what I learned while I was there.

The best part of the whole trip was spending it with so many wonderful people!!!  Visiting with old friends and meeting new friends is the best!!!  Its so cool to finally greet people in real life, when you otherwise only knew them through their blog.  It kind of makes you love them more actually.

Jet Setting

lands'end canvas dress

Hey Everyone!!!  I'm finally back to a real outfit post!!!  Thanks to dismal weather and constant crazy schedules I haven't had a decent outfit post in a long time!!!  Today I'm gearing up for my trip to Austin for the Style Council conference and I am pumped.  I'm also a tad bit nervous, but excited, to finally meet some of my favorite blogger people for the first time.  I keep hearing about all the wonderful things Austin has to offer and I'm looking forward to really seeing the city first hand.

The other day I was thrifting with my friend and I found the prettiest plaid dress I had ever seen.  It was a perfect size for me and it was Lands' Ends Canvas!!  So stoked.  I washed it up and wore it yesterday for my flight.  It was kind of the perfect thing to wear on a flight since the fabric was thick and warm and it just made me feel a little bit more dressy for a day of travel.  I'm in opposite land compared to most travelers and always like to dress up a little.  I'm just not crazy about tons of jewellery, since you don't want to be 'that' person who screws up the security line with over accessorizing your outfits.  I once saw a grown woman throw a temper tantrum because they asked her to remove her 5 necklaces and she had about 1 or 2 rings on each finger.  Really?  Haha..

breezy day

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!  I'll be busy busy busy and will most likely post again on Tuesday when I get all settled into home life/reality.
