Fairly Basic

I think if I had to pick one word to describe the most important thing to me in clothing, it would be comfort. That's what I was looking for this morning when I pulled out this gray dress. I added some fun touches with a leather belt and sequined shoes and was good to go.  Since this was a fairly basic color palette, I added some super fun teal bird earrings just to mix it up.

This week has just flown by, I'm a little shocked tomorrow is Friday. I'm also really excited because it means we are just 5 days away from our summer trip to Colorado. I am so excited for mountain air and seeing some of my best friends. It's going to be awesome!

Stella & Dot Party!

So back in March I met the lovely Whitney Fields at the Texas Style Council. Not only is Whitney super fun, but she is also a fabulous Stella & Dot stylist and within the first 5 minutes of talking to her, I knew I wanted to host a party for my friends to see the awesomeness that is Stella & Dot! 

The set up of lovely items.

The ladies looking at necklaces. Being able to see the items in the catalog and in person was awesome. I ended up really liking a lot of things in person that I might have overlooked otherwise. 

 Clark loved having all the ladies over. He really enjoys a good conversation.

  The lovely Whitney. Delightful company and really great at offering styling suggestions.

 The spread of food, I love any excuse to use my loads of Pinterest recipes! Including Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip, Honey Baked Brie, and this delicious cocktail!
After spending the evening viewing the items, it was impossible not to fall in love with some of them and obviously I have to share my top picks!

Throwing this party was such a good time. I loved having an excuse to invite all of my friends over, make a few (easy) delicious treats, have some bubbly drinks and play dress up. If you live in Austin, I highly recommend inviting Whitney over and throwing your own party!

If you are in the market for some stylish and fun new jewelry, my party link is active until June 12th! 

So treat yourself to something lovely, after all, like the Stella & Dot packaging says,

Minty Leopard

This outfit combines 3 things I love my accordion pleat skirt, leopard, and mint. It makes me smile and it happens to be the only outfit I've managed to photograph in the last 2 weeks. Life has just been busy, and its been hard to fit the photos in, but I promise I have been getting dressed.

I think May might be the busiest month in Austin. Its light out later, its warm but not terribly hot yet and it seems everyone plans events because its nice and we want to enjoy it before the oppressive heat of summer settles in and no one wants to go outside. I am going to work on figuring out how to fit outfit photos in, I've missed my little blog and I'm sure you've missed the photos of Petunia.

So this week has also gotten away from me, but at least for last night and today I have a good, no make that great, excuse, I was at the Punch Brothers. This means that I didn't get home until nearly midnight and then this morning no one was going to take a photo of my tried face. Lets say today was hair up, black dress, bright scarf, and Toms and wasn't worth photographing.

Instead of outfits today I'm going to show you some amazing music.

I have been a Chris Thile fan since I was 16, last night was my 15th time seeing him live and to be honest with you, that isn't enough. He is AMAZING and I will see him every chance I get for the rest of my life.

One of my most favorite Chris Thile songs, silly, funny, and awesome: "Set me up with one of your friends"

Chris' curent band is Punch Brothers, who are also (and obviously) amazing. I've seen them 5 times and everytime I fall more in love with them, I could literatly spend hours telling you how awesome they are, so instead I'll just post a few videos and let you see for yourself 

Also, they know Paul Simon 

And there is a whole movie about them and their awesome 

Basically what I am saying is, you should be a Punch Brothers fan.
