{lookbook} weekend in Austin

{black Zara blazer / navy striped tee / jeans / leopard flats / Zara plaited shopper / H&M fur collar / chains + pearls}






{leopard cardigan / jeans / camel suede wedges / gold chain + monogram necklace}




{the best part of this leopard cardi...the back. full-on matte black sequins. swoon.}


I was in Austin this past weekend, catching up with old friends and making new ones.
It was fabulous.  So much so that I stayed an extra day.

No big surprise...my outfits consisted of stripes and leopard.
With a touch of black sequins. How amazing is the back of that cardigan!
Jewelry was kept pretty simple....just a few chains, pearls and of course my monogram necklace! 
Oh and the obligatory arm candy.

have a lovely day my dears,
xx


{ps}: sorry about the lighting in those stairwell pictures, they looked so much cooler on the little screen of my DSLR ;)
{pps}:  I'm always playing with my hair. I know.  My mom still tells me to stop to this day. Can't help it...

You look absolutely classic and lovely. I am sure Austin (with an aesthetic that is often neither of the two) didn't know what to do with you!

Hope you had an absolute blast!
