Hamilton Pool














Top: Urban Outfitters (old)
Sweater: Thrifted
Shorts: Urban Outfitters
Sandals: Target
Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs

          Hamilton Pool Preserve is a little outside of Austin, TX.  It's a huge natural rock formation with a waterfall, and pool of water.  The water is so clear and blue.  The color is just so surprisingly bright.    I had never heard of it before, but came across it while looking for things to do around Austin.  I hear it makes a great swimming spot when the weather is super hot.  I'm really glad we checked it out because it is a pretty amazing place.  Sorry this post isn't really about fashion.  I just wanted to show you how cool this place is.

Riverwalk




















Top: BCNU
Skort: Sheinside
Sandals: Target
Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Sunglasses: River Island

          San Antonio, TX was the second stop on our southern adventure.  I forgot to include in my previous post our itinerary.  We flew into New Orleans, then took a road trip to Houston, San Antonio, Hamilton Pool Preserve, Austin, Galveston Island, then back to New Orleans.  In San Antonio we spent most of our time at the Riverwalk.  It's a seriously amazing place.  There are so many awesome restaurants and spots right on the river.  We also stopped by the Alamo, because it was right there.  We went to the top of the Tower of the Americas too.  I bought this top right before the trip.  I am mildly obsessed with it.  I love the fabric, pattern, and the cool string sections in the center and sleeves.

Houston Adventures
















Dress: Forever 21
Sandals: Target
Purse: Kate Spade
Sunglasses: River Island
Long Necklace: Forever 21
Short Necklace: H&M

          Welcome to the first post of several from my trip to the South.  Our first stop was Houston.  I have been there once before but didn't really enjoy the city.  I liked it much better the second time because I was able to do exactly what I want, instead of what my parents planned.  We only had one day there so we went to Hermann Park, the Galleria Mall, and a few restaurants.  First I want to talk about how amazing that mall is.  It is literally the largest mall that I have ever been to.  There is every store that I could ever desire to go in, even the top designers.  It was probably the most fun shopping experience I have ever had!  We went there because my boyfriend desparately needed a new pair of shoes, but we ended up shopping for several hours.  I bought this dress and necklace from Forever 21.  I saw this dress online but couldn't find it at my Forever 21.  I saw it here and had to get it.  I have also been looking for a long crescent moon necklace for a long time and found one here.  I can't remember the name of either restaurant we went to but they were both deliscious.

Forest Green









Sweater and Skirt: Forever 21
Necklace: Forever 21 too -_-
Boots: Pink & Pepper

          This sweater reminds me of a pine tree, but in a good way.  I think the texture is really cool and I like that the color is unusual.  It's not very often that you come across this combination of teal and forest green.  It's also incredibly warm, as you can tell.  No coat needed! I'd have to say the only bad thing about it is that it kind of makes me feel bulky/fat.  This is my last blog post before my trip to the South and Southwest, so look out for posts from that coming soon.  Also, I came up with a name for my label that I am pretty excited about.  I will post it when I get back.
