Marfa, Texas

Sometimes being in one place for too long can get a little mundane, even when living in the great city of Austin. I love to travel often, even if it isn't far, to gain new inspiration and a fresh perspective. My most recent adventrue was to Marfa, Texas. The small, two-block town provides opportunities for all kinds of adventures that you would never expect. Upon arrival, which happened to be around 11 PM, we searched for any open eatery. We came across Thunderbird Motel which had an upscale bar/restaurant called The Capri. The mexican cusine was exceptional and the upscale aesthetic of the space really tied it all together. After an amazing dinner, my friends and I headed to our camping grounds. That's right! If you want to do Marfa right, you HAVE to stay at El Cosmico. The "glamping" they provide is really one of a kind and allows you to truely embrace the beauty of the Marfa Plateau. At night the stars are brighter than ever and during the day the view of the mountains never gets old. El Cosmico really gives you everything you need to enjoy your stay in Marfa. This small town has also accumulated quite a bit of traction because of its abundance of amazing art. The Chinati Foundation is an amazing place to stop at and enjoy. Right next door you can find yourslef some amazing Mediterrainian food at Stellina. Just look for the white building with bright blue doors. I hope this all will act as a mini guidebook to highlight just a few of the marvelous activities there are to do in the town of Marfa Texas!

An Eye for Eyelet

When living in Texas, you have to be prepared to extend your summer wardrobe into the late weeks of Fall. This outfit combines some summer essentials, such as lace-up espadrilles and an eyelet top, with a few winter staples, such as frayed jeans and a black cardigan. This outfit was the perfect look for your typical Texas Fall day, which is usually about 60-70 degrees with a slight breeze. The black, white, and denim color scheme of this outfit creates endless opportunities for adding accessories as well as colorful accent pieces. To all my Texans, - I hope you are keeping cool this Fall, and to everyone else,  - stay warm and layer up on the cardigans!

My Comfy Quarters

After a long day of classes or an adventurous day out in the vibrant city of Austin, I always love coming home to my cozy, comfy, and coordinated room. A room to me is where you conceive your brightest ideas, start off your most amazing days, get ready for the best nights out, and where you come home at the end of every day. Because of this, I believe that a room needs to be a place that can foster your creativity and fit your personal aesthetic. I chose to write my first blog post about my apartment bedroom so that I could give you all some insight as to who I am and what I like. I pieced together my room based on my aesthetic for gold accents, the simplicity of neutrals and basics, and my desire for cozy vibes. Checkout the pictures below to see how my room came together!
