Getting ready to hit the road again this month, but this time Natalie and I aren’t going too far. Just back to one of our favorite American cities, Austin, Texas. We will be there to support Cafe Bustelo, who is one of the sponsors of the Outdoor Stage at Lady Bird Lake from March 16-18th. This stage is one of the biggest stages at SXSW.
Cafe Bustelo activation hours:
Thursday, March 16th: 4-10pm
Friday, March 17th: 4-10pm
Saturday, March 18th: 11am-7pm
For access to this stage, you just have to sign-up for a wrist band HERE.
Natalie and I will be hanging out at the Cafe Bustelo tent during SXSW on Friday, the 17th in the evening. Make sure to stop by during the above times March 16-18th to take advantage of the charging stations, free Cafe Bustelo samples, photo booth and tons of other games and giveaways. Nat and I will also be showing you our favorites from the bands performing that day at the Outdoor Stage. We’ll also be giving you a peek into our favorite things to do when we are in Austin, Texas. The food, the music, the people . . . SXSW is one of the most crazy and fun weeks in Austin, so get ready!
SXSW is probably the easiest music festival to pack for. Mostly because Austin is so chill, and the scene is much more laid back than Coachella. Not to mention, the weather is always reliably warm. It’s always sunny in Austin. Denim and lots more of denim. Easy little dresses under denim jackets. Western hats, why not?! Boots. Sunglasses are always key, of course. My trusty camera. Natalie and I are also packing our Cafe Bustelo for the road because we are always up early and to bed late during SXSW. There’s so much to see and do, it nearly seems impossible to fit everything in . . . but somehow we always manage to do so.
Hope to see some of you in Austin. Once again, sign-up HERE to get access to the SXSW Outdoor Stage. It’s going to be a good time, ya’ll.
Thank you to Cafe Bustelo for sponsoring this post.
All watches featured in this post are by CLUSE
When you have a whole lot of time to not worry about time . . . then you know that you are in Mexico. But that was exactly the best part of our trip . . . the fact that we had all the time in the world. And no perfect time than when time itself seems to magically become endless, to put on a CLUSE watch and keep track of how slow the days really pass by . . . and how much you want it to keep staying that way. We officially found out how much of a perfect beach side accessory the watch really is. Cluse watches, minimal and practical in design, yet bold and bright (if one desires) in colors, fit right in with the aesthetics of Mexico (and our bikinis). I brought two colors to Mexico to mix and match under the Tulum sun. My CLUSE Minuit Gold in White/Mustard was playful and gave me that summer feeling to take around with me on my wrist. It added exactly the kind of pop of color and sensibility one expects to have in a place as laid back and fun loving as Tulum. My CLUSE La Roche Gold in Black Marble/Black style is sophisticated and sleek, with just a slight touch of masculinity. It streamlined the golds and heavy patterns that I sometimes like to wear to the beach. My CLUSE watches balanced one another out, just like how Tulum balanced out my racing mind leftover from NYC with the peaceful tides of the current situation. My watch was a reminder that I had no need to rush. Anytime was the best sort of time.

Sneakers are a part of my DNA. I’ve always been the tallest one in the room, so flat shoes, and especially sneakers, kept me feeling more like I fit in. Today, I have no issues with being tall at all, but sneakers are still on my feet. The thing is that I wear them differently more often than not nowadays, leaning more towards the feminine side with skirts and dresses, as opposed to something paired with pants. I love to feel feminine, even more so today in my late twenties. I think it’s a part of growing up . . . growing into oneself in a way. But never do I want to look or feel too done up (or should I say prissy). You’ll find maybe one or two pairs of heels higher than 3 or 4 inches on my shoe shelf . . . and my feet have been thanking me greatly for it. Sneakers are my best friend through and through. During the days of the past when I wanted to feel not so tall, to the present days when I want to be comfortable, but without sacrificing looking feminine. Timberland lets me be a comfortable girl, and that’s the best thing. Here are two ways that I wear sporty shoes by Timberland in a feminine way. What’s better than having the best of both worlds? I hope they inspire you to do the same.
