Welcome to Austin, TX, SXSWers! And by welcome, I mean, please come enjoy our tacos and don’t move here because our roads can’t handle another transplant. (Edit: unless you’re one of my blogging besties, because I would love to have you!)
I typically avoid SXSW, except for maybe a little-known music showcase off the beaten path of the festival. In fact, I spent this first weekend across the state in Dallas/Denton for work. However, I’m really excited to actually be hosting an event downtown during SXSW this year. (Who am I??) One of my longtime favorite stores francesca’s has invited me to host a shopping event in honor of festival fashion, local musicians, and stylish Austin babes. If you happen to be in Austin this week, I would LOVE to see you there. I can promise to share my favorite fran pieces for spring and the best taco recommendations in town.
WHAT: a shopping event, hosted by me!
WHERE: francesca’s 2nd St District location
WHEN: Tuesday March 15 (tomorrow!), 5-7 PM
WHY: pretty clothes, sips & sweets, and 25% off your entire purchase!
Come out and show your fran + writes like a girl love!
P.S. This is an outfit that I envisioned as soon as I ordered the skirt, but wasn’t sure how it would work out in real life. Well, it’s one of my favorites I’ve ever shared on the blog (partially because Chelsea NAILED these photos)! Love when that happens.
