Willie Nelson’s Heartbreaker Banquet with Minnetonka Moccasin

March 18, 2014

One of our major stops during SXSW with Minnetonka Moccasin was the Heartbreaker Banquet on Willie Nelson’s ranch, about a 40 minute drive outside of Austin, TX. Such an amazing experience! The ranch is an old cowboy movie set that literally transports you into a John Wayne western. The sun was beaming, horse dens lined the outskirts of the ranch and there was no concrete in sight, just dirt. So this is how the southwest is supposed to feel! We shot a mini look book with the Minnetonka team on the ranch grounds, using the cute storefronts as our backdrop. We took our last shots just as the crowds started pouring in for the awesome lineup of bands set to play. I haven’t heard of the majority of the acts playing the Heartbreaker Banquet before, but boy did I leave with a few new favorites to add to my playlist, including Clear Plastic Masks, Shovels and Rope, Elle King, Willie Watson, Hurray for the Riff Raff, and Nikki Lane. We rocked our Minnetonka moccasins all day and felt perfectly in character with them on with the ranch as our setting. Natalie and I both couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to Texas than this experience. Thanks for having us Minnetonka 🙂 
And here’s the look that I wore to my very first day in Austin, last Wednesday. Casual and sporty with a twist.

Update from Austin

March 15, 2014
Natalie and I are already on our 4th day in Austin, TX for SXSW with Minnetonka Moccasin and we are having a blast! This city is so friendly, laid-back, and colorful. Not to mention there is MUSIC everywhere and FOOD TRUCKS around just about every corner. We’ve been getting around on pedicabs ridden by cute hipster boys and people watching like its nobody’s business. SXSW really attracts an amazingly eclectic group of people and we are always meeting new friends. This is just a small peek at what we’ve been up to in Austin these past few days. Lots more to share, but already we’ve got to run if we plan on seeing some day shows. The best thing about this city is that you can be sure to find something fun to do by randomly strolling the streets. Music is spilling out of every bar, they serve whiskey out of winnebagos and little coffee shop and vintage store gem are hidden throughout. Catching a cab out of downtown to our hotel room is kind of a nightmare, but everything else about Austin makes it worth it! We’ve been going around with our Minnetonka shoes on our feet, so more to come on our SXSW fashion choices, as well 🙂 On Wednesday Natalie and I attended the Heartbreak Banquet on Willie Nelson’s ranch outside of Austin. We shot a look book with Minnetonka and enjoyed a whole line up of bands with an awesome mix of of rock, bluegrass and country sounds. Also, we drank a lot of Moonshine! haha. More to come from that, as well!

In full on prep for SXSW mode right now. Nat and I fly out early Wednesday morning! We have some cool stuff up our sleeves for Austin and we can’t wait to share! Let me leave you with a look that I most definitely will NOT need to wear in Austin, but that I still love through and through. My all-time favorite coat of the season. And my Miu Miu creepers are still my true love! Can’t wait to rock them with bare legs and little dresses this spring 🙂 Can this please officially be my last winter outfit post of the season? PRETTY PLEASE?

Sometimes I like to downplay things and tap into a more French way of dressing, if you’d like to call it that. These worn to the bone boyfriend jeans are my go-to for easy days like this. A little bit of ankle never hurt anybody. I just pretend it’s not that cold out. Also, is it just me or is my ombre slowly coming back? I think its because my hair knows that spring is just around the corner. Or at least its hoping for it with fingers crossed. Split ends and all.
