Austin Street Style: Dee.

The perfect boho-chic look. Dee's pants are from Free People.

Aren't these pants perfect for a few errands around town? Dee and I go to The Art Institute of Austin together, and I have always envied her hippie style.


Over the weekend, I hung out with myself and my dog. Basically, I was allowed a great deal of reflection, which is important when you've just started your penultimate quarter at school. Plus, it was too hot to walk anywhere.

What did I ponder over, you ask?

Well...in alphabetical order:

Apple crisp, amaretto sours, Christmas, coconuts, crayola art, evolution, gluten-free cupcake cones, graduation, Halloween, how one is supposed to eat a coconut, jewelry making, jumping jacks, kittens, macramé, my overuse of ellipses, piano songs I should learn, Resort 2012 previews, sewing projects I have started and never completed, telekinesis, the actual round rock of Round Rock, The Guild (web series), winter vacation, whether or not I've read every John Grisham novel (I haven't)...and so on.

Random, perhaps, but it's allowed me to narrow down my priorities. Such as with graduation, an internship is a requirement. I recently found an internship working with a local Native American-themed band as their stylist. It still needs to be approved, but I have a good feeling about it.

And then Halloween, my favorite holiday! It is NEVER too early to start planning your Halloween costume. I think I'm going to be Joan from AMC's Mad Men this year. I've been debating on whether or not to re-dye my hair red, so we'll see what happens as October approaches.

Also, sewing projects: there are pants that need to be hemmed, buttons that need resewing, basic tees that need to be embroidered. I'm a little on the broke side of life at the moment, but once I have enough money, I hope to conquer the growing pile of clothes that need decorating and mending.

As for The Guild? Hulu has been streaming all four seasons. I'm obsessed with it. If you're a gamer, or have friends that are gamers, it is laugh-out-loud funny. I saw the show's creator and lead actress, Felicia Day, at a Q&A during SXSW, and she's a talented lady.

Anywho. That's my weekend in a nutshell. How was yours?
