Ah we had so much fun this past weekend during our road trip to Austin for ACL (Austin City Limits). It was my first music festival and I would go back in a heart beat. It was so much fun! We were VERY spoiled with the place we stayed at, thanks to Homeaway, and the backstage passes to Homeaway and the Titos tent. We may have stayed at those two locations the ENTIRE time haha! It was like a glorified tailgate which was so much fun!

Our house in Austin was also unbelievable! I am a big believer in where you stay on trips also can make or break your experience! The house was the perfect location to ACL and all we had to do was walk. I had some questions on our place for those who are planning on coming to Austin. I didn’t feel comfortable until we left but now that we are headed home, you can find the listing to our house here! It would be perfect any event that you have in Austin!

I am so excited to head home today but sadly husband already left to China! This is such an insane month for him trying to close out the acqusation project he has been working on. I can’t wait until it’s over and I get my hubby back!

Fall Covered Bridge

Happy first week of October! Kinda in disbelief that the last quarter of 2017 is here! Holy smokes 3 more months of the year left?! I am so excited to share this look with you all during my Vermont trip because this was one of my favorite looks. I def borrowed this skirt from Emily after thinking how cute it would go with this green top. I ordered a houndstooth skirt, this one should be coming in this week, but I just couldn’t wait! Houndstooth has been all over and reminds me of a PSL = FALL GALORE.  We came across this fall covered bridge while driving around Stowe, Vermont before dinner and talk about a Northern gem! With the fall leaves falling, it was the perfect fall setting.

We had such an amazing time in Vermont and I am missing the trip already! I have one more look to share and I am thinking of doing a recap since I have had so many requests! Thanks for stopping by darlings.

Vermont Apple Picking

Dress: Free People | Shoes: Chinese Laundry | Earrings: MB | Purse: Givenchy | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: David Yurman | Bracelet: David Yurman  

So we made it to Vermont and it is just about the cutest state there is! Vermont apple picking is high on the to do list so we went to brunch and then went straight to Shelburne Farms. It was my first time apple picking and I did LOVE the apple cider and apple donuts. For sure a fall bucket list if you find yourself in the north!

I wore this top / dress and it was SO comfy. I am 5’3 and I EASILY wore it as a dress. You can add shorts underneath but I did not have too! Not going to lie, the fall on the dress makes my legs look good! I paired them with my favorite booties since I can walk for miles in these! Today we are off to Stowe!

How to Chase Your Dream


How to chase your dream

Tops: ASOS | Skirt: REVOLVE | Shoes: Zala | Purse: Givenchy | Earrings: Bauble Bar | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: David Yurman | Bracelet: David Yurman  

I’ve been asked how to chase your dream by multiple people throughout my blogging journey. The funny thing is I’m not quite sure, I don’t have all the answers, but I might as well give it a shot. During, NYFW I was reminded multiple times how dreams do come true. Here I am a girl from Texas in New York for NYFW in the Dream hotel…talk about feeling like you are in a dream. I by no means am an expert when it comes to this topic but along the way I have learned a LOT…

Here are some simple steps :

1. Take a chance: don’t spend time thinking what if. I literally pondered on starting a blog for MONTHS and should have taken a chance when I thought of it. You’ll never be 100% ready, you just have to take the leap.
2. Don’t be afraid to fail: after taking the leap, you may fall. I have failed, time and time again but you only pick back up stronger!
3. Surround yourself with people who are chasing theirs: I have been blessed to be surrounded by beautiful ladies who are running after their goals, this is HUGE. Find a support system that will constantly build you up instead of tear you down.
4. Work hard, work your little booty off: I believe what you put in is what you get out. If you really really want something, you are going to work hard for it. Nothing good comes easy!
I really did get inspired by this post after staying at the Dream hotel with THE BEST ROOMIES there ever was. I literally could not stop laughing the entire trip. These girls were just so uplifting, encouraging, and it was a non judgmental zone. We spent SO many good memories on the roof top, in our room with piles of clothes, swapping outfits, late late late nights and early early coffee runs. I couldn’t have survived the entire week without Emily, Lauren, and Dani and of course the Dream hotel for having us! Also love that a proceed of our stay at the hotel will be going towards Hurricane Harvey.
