easy breezy

This was another dress I snagged at the Lulu's swap on Friday night!  It was the perfect dress for going out on Sunday night.  We went to Garridos after all the TxSC events were over for the TxSC after party sponsored by Yelp!  The event was held out on the patio, so there wasn't any A/C, but this dress is so light and breezy that it turned out to be the perfect choice for the evening!  The dress didn't fit perfectly in the bust, but thankfully the gals from Lulu's had a little sewing kit on hand and they adjusted the straps for me so I could wear it.  After the mini-alteration, it fit perfectly!  I'm usually not a big fan of high-low dresses, for some reason they seem to make me look stumpy, but this one's ethereal vibe is just right.

After the festivities at Garridos, a little group of us finished the night at Sully's.  I had a blast talking to Kendi, Jen and Kev, and we ended up shutting down the bar before making our way across the bridge back to the Hyatt.  I love being able to walk around outside at night without needing so much as a cardigan.  There are a couple nights here in Washinton during the summers where the nights stay that warm, but not to the extent that Austin nights were warm.  I mean, being 100º during the day, it'd be hard not to be warm all night.

The next morning I got up and went to brunch with Julie, Moorea, Chelsea, Savannah, Jenny, and Indiana at South Congress Cafe.  As always, food was amazing.  Savannah and Jenny got carrot cake french toast!  We all had to try a bite, because obviously.  Afterwards we moseyed around South Congress, exploring Uncommon Objects, Stag, Tesoros Trading Co.,and a couple other vintage shops, and then rehydrated with some Arnold Palmers at Jo's.  My flight didn't leave till evening, so after Jo's everyone else headed out and I kept exploring SoCo.  I really wanted to check out Parts & Labour, and ended up getting an incredible print.  I can't wait to get it framed and on the wall!  I also ended up getting Dan a little gift of some beard oil from Stag.  I had wanted to go in Stag last year, but never ended up making it.  I'm glad I got to squeeze it in before heading to the airport!
