Spring Dreams

31 Jan

I have one question: what are you doing for spring break?



Today I was enjoying the 70 degree weather as I walked from my car to my 9am class. When it ended at 11, I was not enjoying the long trek across campus in a freezing rain and hail. In flip flops. And no umbrella or jacket to speak of. Not fun as you can imagine… Unfortunately the forecast is threatening to be the same for most of the week and all I can do is dream of spring break and somewhere warm!

For spring break I’m lucky enough to be attending the 1st ever Texas Style Council Conference in Austin during SXSW! I’m still super new at blogging and I’m really excited to hear from seasoned veterans and take my blog to the next level. As if a whole weekend of learning about fashion blogging weren’t enough, the weekend after I hope to make it to a few StyleX (Pronounced: Style By, just like SXSW means South by Southwest) events. StyleX is a “showcase of emerging fashion from around the world” and I can’t wait to learn about cool new designers and future industry trends.

In between these two weekends I will be wandering around downtown Austin attending film premieres and listening to some awesome bands who will be in town for SXSW Music and Film Festival. It’s going to be a blast and I feel so lucky to be from the coolest city on the planet. Here are a few more photos of Austin to tide both you and me (but mostly me, as a distraction from the psuedo-Arizona blizzard outside) over until I get home in about 6 weeks :)



What are you doing for spring break? Any exciting trips coming up?

Bisous,
Rachel
