Austin, TX

23 November 2011



Browsing at Waterloo Records, a super famous place where several of my fav
artists have played. Pretty cool too because my uncles used to play here in the 70's.



Beatles postcard from Waterloo. I couldn't resist!



Food trucks/trailers are literally everywhere in Austin, and I cannot get enough of 'em!



Met up super briefly with Diya from In Her Stilettos! She was super sweet.



Visited one of my favorite shops called Uncommon Objects. Store name is pretty
self-explanatory. They have the craziest stuff here.




More from the shop. I love all these globes!



Giant aloe vera plants are all around the town and I for some reason find
them fascinating!





Although I have been to Austin several times in my life (I have TONS of family there),
every time I go I feel like a bit of a tourist. There is just so much to see, and new
shops and such are always popping up every time I go. It was a super laid-back
weekend and here are a few photos that captured my trip! Sums it up basically.
If you haven't been here yet, I definitely suggest you make the trip :)

Well I hope you all have a lovely Thanksgiving Day tomorrow! I am going to
start making the pies tonight, yay.

I am loving the vintage feel of these photos!! That is so cool that your uncles played at that record store! (loving the coffee mug, gotta love the london underground...I went through the Waterloo station a few times, haha)

I love both of your outfits! Love Diya's style too!

Giulia said...

Those pictures are amazing! As is your dress, haha.
I wish we had crazy shops like that one in Europe, but they'd probably be super expensive and you'd have to call them 'antiquités'. I should probably cross the ocean for good :D

Happy Thanksgiving, I suppose!
