Over the years, I’ve realized just how essential a solid pair of black yoga pants (or five) is to a woman’s wardrobe. You can dress them up – or down – depending on the day’s itinerary, and they can be paired with any color, fabric, and/or design. They even make fleece lined(!) leggings, which are incredibly ideal for those living in states that actually participate in winter. Texas had another cold streak this past week so I opted to throw on a white knit top with the coziest pair of yoga pants I could find. These grey boots from Nordstrom are both gorgeous AND comfy, and my hot pink satchel from Kate Spade really tied the look together. Please excuse my frizzy hair, it was actually raining when Andrew took these pictures (he’s a trooper, I tell you).
The nighttime version of the look includes a white faux leather jacket I scored for $20 at Guess Factory, a messy room, and a cringe-worthy mirror selfie.
It’s hard to fathom the fact that it’s already March, but I’m going to embrace it with open arms because spring has always been my favorite season. I’m looking forward to cool temperatures, frolicking through fields of vibrant flowers blooming all throughout hill country, and finding the nearest beach STAT. Speaking of cool temps, Andrew and I road tripped to San Antonio last weekend (recap will be on the blog eventually) and it not only rained the entire time, but it was also freakishly cold. However, we were determined to make the most of our time in the historic, charming city, so we donned umbrellas and set off on foot to explore. Being the shopping fiend that I am, moseying around the La Villita Historic Arts Village was definitely the highlight of my trip – aside from getting some much needed R & R with the boyfriend, of course. We ate, we saw, we conquered.
Scintillating views from Mount Bonnell.
Shortly after moving to Austin, I curated a bucket list of things I wanted to do around town. A couple of weeks ago, I was finally able to cross one of those off: Mount Bonnell. Albeit I initially worried about the ‘hiking’ aspect of it, I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was actually no hiking involved at all. You simply walk up a really long set of stairs (I believe it was around 100?) and once you make it to the top, you are rewarded with stunning, panoramic views of the city. Totally worth it. Anyway, life is still great. I’m a bit swamped between graduate school (I’m halfway done!) and freelance projects, but I do solemnly swear to start updating the blog on a more regular basis.
