Traveled Down The Road and Back Again

This was my favorite outfit of our mini-break to Austin.


I was not the only one who loved it. It was surprisingly and intensely popular with older ladies. I had them stop me on the street, and chat my up in the ladies room. They called me brave, and fun, and "so cute" and applauded my willingness to step outside of the box and have a little fun with my outfit. And they made me feel like a super star.


I had planned to wear my leather fringe vest, but this denim shirt Nathan suggested ended up being perfect. It tones down both the sweetness of the lace and the sexiness of the length and sheerness of the tunic. I don't think you can see them really but I am wearing the most amazing distressed cutoffs made from vintage Levi's.

(That's our beautiful friend Vicki who came up for Saturday)


My headband was made by my friend Casey, she uses realllllllly flexible headbands and I normally can't wear a headband at all without getting horrible pain behind my ears and I can wear the ones Casey uses all day.  Let me know if you'd like one and I'll hook you up with Casey!

On me:
Tunic, Free People
Bra, Target
Shorts, vintage Levi's
Boots, Gianni Bini via Buffalo Exchange Austin
Denim shirt, Vintage Wrangler
Flower headband, made by Casey

On Stevie (best guesses!):
Tee, Vintage
Shorts, Dog and Pony
Boots, Jeffery Campbell

On Vicki:
I can't speak to the tank or skirt, but the bag is vintage Coach and the shoes are Chucks
