Recommendations for San Marcos & Austin

 
Jacket Size down, runs big (size reference, wearing S)
Top Fits TTS (size reference, wearing M)
Jeans Fits TTS (size reference, wearing 29)
 
Hey y'all! Don't you love a quick weekend getaway with your babe? Isn't it funny how you get so wrapped up with kids, kids sports, dinners, doing laundry...basically just life and we forget to have those random date nights every once in awhile. We were really good about scheduling a date night,  once a month after my son was born. Fast forward to the present and our date nights somehow include the kiddos. lol This trip was extra special since it wasn't just a date night, but more like a date weekend in San Marvelous (San Marcos) & Austin.

Friday morning we dropped the kiddos off and made our way downtown 35 to our alma mauter, Texas State University. We arrived around noon and we decided to go reminiscing throughout town. We checked out our old apartments, my hubby's fraternity, the new stadium, everything that has changed on campus and where we used to kayak down the San Marcos River. Oh my goodness, it brought back so many wonderful memories and it's honestly weird to think we graduated over 10 years ago. Yikes! We also, went to see some family and friends. We had happy hour at AquaBrew on the patio and that evening was so gorgeous that we decided to have dinner on the patio at the River Pub (since it just opened reopened). The view was amazing and the food was just as good.

Saturday and we decided to walk around downtown, 6th street area where SXSW was going on. I mean... the amount of people up and walking around at 9am for the event was crazy! The weather couldn't of been more perfect. I'm all for 90 degree temps in March. I mean...hello spring with a spinkle of summer temps! We saw 3 Batman cars outside of one of the SXSW venues, small red carpets everywhere and unfortunately we missed Matthew McConaughey on the street. That evening we went on to my hubby's old fraternity brother's wedding at The Texas Federation of Women's Clubs Mansion. It was seriously a Pinterest dream. We didn't stop there after the wedding...a large group of the wedding party went to the bars on 4th street for a late night par-tay.

Sunday came too fast. Well, spring forward made sure of that. lol But seriously, we were ready to be back home with the kiddos, but took our time heading back. We made a pit stop in Waco at Fazoli's (a fast food Italian restaurant that I LOVE). That wraps of our date weekend and I hope you enjoy some of these spring outfits for your next trip downtown 35! Much love, Sue

13 Spring Outfits for Vegas

Hi friends! I'm back from Las Vegas and I had such a great time...other than the fact that I cannot sleep when I'm away from my hubby and the kids. So basically I had about 12 hours of sleep for the week, but hey...I made it, right! Spring time in Vegas is beautiful! The morning and evenings are a little chilly so a cardi or lightweight jacket is definitely a must on your next vacay. Also, you will be doing a lot of walking outside on your trip, so a good pair of sneakers and sunscreen is also on the list.

A few recs while you're in Vegas. You HAVE to check out Holsteins Shakes and Buns at the Cosmopolitan if you love a good burger. Did I mention they have the best shakes in town?!? I tried the strawberry and chocolate and it was delish. If you love sushi like I do, you have to check out
SUSHISAMBA at the Palazzo. Also, make sure you head the Bellagio fountains. The fountain show goes on every half hour during the day and in the evening it's every 15 minutes. This show is amazing and doesn't disappoint. 

These are a few flexible pieces you can't forget for your trip.
 
Basic Tops are the perfect piece to layer or mix and match with any outfit.
 


 
A comfortable pair of shorts or pants since you will be doing a lot of walking on the strip.




A lightweight Jacket, Cardigan or Kimono will keep you comfortable and warm when that chilly breeze comes through.




A good pair of sneakers will keep you comfortable for a full day of walking up and down the strip. But  you can transition into a cute pair of sandals for the shows, dinners and pool parties.



A cute swimsuit for the spa or if you make to any of the pool parties.




These are 13 easy spring outfits for your next trip to Vegas. Much love, Sue

5 Spring Must Haves

Hi friends! Spring is right around the corner, so I thought I'd share 5 must haves for the Spring season. I'm so ready for beautiful weather and all the spring blooms. If only we could get past all of this rain. What are you most excited about for Spring? Do you have any upcoming vacay or staycays planned? Spring break plans? I am gearing up for a trip to Las Vegas for work, a weekend getaway with the hubby in Austin and then our Annual Family camping trip with 12 of our closest friends and all their kids.

4 Spring Must Haves For The Spring Season

1. A light weight cardi or kimono is a must have for spring. In the early mornings & late evenings it gets chilly, so you will be comfortable & cute for this upcoming season. These are a few of my faves.


2. A lightweight jacket is always nice to keep in the car to throw on if the temps drop quickly.

3. Sandals and wedges are not only comfy, but the perfect staple to pair with any outfit this season.



4. April showers bring May flowers, so all things waterproof are a must.



5. And since Easter is right around the corner, we can't forget all the fun spring dresses this season! Maxi dresses, fun spring dresses and even comfy dresses that you can wear with sneakers. 



 These are a few the your favorite outfits from IG for this season.
