My weekend at ACL ...

You're all probably wondering how was Austin City Limits ? It was ok, this was the first year where my days weren't full of back to back shows. Maybe that's cause the line up was not as exciting as the past years that we've attended I guess it is hard top ACL 2007 (Arcade Fire, Bjork, Bloc Party, Arctic Monkeys, Regina Spektor, LCD Sounsystem etc.. full line up here ) and ACL 2013 ( Depeche Mode, The Cure, Phoenix, Franz Ferdinand, Tame Impala, Kendrick Lamar etc... full list here ). The one nice thing is we got to go and spend time with our friends and enjoy Zilker Park without having to make that decision we all hate at a festival "Should I go see --- or --- ". Either way it was nice to be in Texas and see my family have some delicious TexMex food and get some much needed sun.

This year I decided to go hands free and rely on my iPhone to capture my weekend, so my apologies for the distorted photos.

This weekend i ...

My apologies for the radio silence I've been quite busy with enjoying life. Of course it doesn't stop me from documenting little moments here and there via Instagram. Fall is here and so is everything pumpkin and I will be taking full advantage of it. The weather has been up and down here in Baltimore one day it's raining another day you need a jacket and Friday I wore shorts and a tank. While the weather decides what it's going to do it's giving me time to look for a new winter coat + look for some new booties.
Monday is here folks so lets tackle this week with a smile and enjoy the beautiful fall weather happening this week.

My life lately ...

Last month I started a series called "My Life Lately" (see here) where I will give you a little recap on my life for those of you interested. This blog is slowly transitioning from a style blog to a life style blog unintentionally. With so much going on  in my life right now I am having less time behind the computer and spending the majority of my time studying and being a wife. Working full time , being a wife and part time student is not easy so my love for blogging has taken the back seat for now. Thank you to all of you who have stuck it out with me and stop by and visit my little spot on the world wide web.

Wanting :  I have been wanting this Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag but the darn thing has been sold out everywhere the stalking will continue until it's mine. I'm in need of some brown leather boots and I think I might take the plunge with these Sam Edelman booties as well as these Madewell jeans .

Planning : Our camping trip is right around the corner so I've been preparing with multiple trips to REI . I've never been so I am pretty anxious and excited for this trip with nature. Luckily since I am a camping newbie I will have 13 other campers with us to show us the ropes. Expect me to clog up your Instagram feed so beware.

Loving : Pumpkin donuts, candy corn , the breeze on bike ride to and from work and my new souvenir tee I picked up in Austin.

Listening : Since we just got back from Austin City Limits I've been listening to Tune Yards - Nikki Nack on repeat. I wasn't able to see there set at ACL because they were on at the same time as my fave group hopefully I will get to see them soon.

Watching : What haven't I been watching from Sons of Anarchy, Homeland and Parenthood thank goodness for fall TV. I'm looking forward to a new show called Marry Me with the hilarious Casey Wilson - love her.

Missing:  Girls night out with my best girlfriends from home. I haven't spent time with my good girlfriends in quite some time and I miss them so much.

Festival Style

ACL style

Top   //  Denim Shorts // Sandals // Fanny Pack // Hat // Sunnies // Mophie Case

It's that time of the year again where music lovers join together and enjoy some great music and delicious food in the great city of Austin Texas. Austin City Limits Music Festival is one of the best places on earth from the people to the beautiful lawn at Zilker Park. For the past few years ACL has been our annual meet up spot for us and our friends from New Orleans kind of like a family reunion.
ACL brings out a lot of great style but as for this thirty something gal I will be roaming the lawn in denim shorts and a basic tee or tank for 3 days (obviously not the same clothes). I keep my style pretty simple and easy because it's still 80 degrees in Texas and lets face it you're at a park with about 150,000 other people so you will get stepped on and possibly rained on so I always keep my style practical. I purchased a fanny pack last year with the hope of wearing it to ACL this year  it doesn't hold much but the necessities phone & lip balm. I will be documenting my days at ACL on Instagram so if you'd like to follow along or if you plan on going to ACL hit me up. I'll be signing off for the rest of the week but don't forget to follow me on
