| Jeans: c/o Goldsign (similar) | Scarf: Similar | Wedges: Similar | Purse: Melie Bianco}This weekend we hung around our favorite town, Austin, for a little mini-getaway. But when you go out for a date night, it’s just not handy to bring a camera. (Although I am not above that. There is little that I am above.) So again with the trusty iPhone for outfit shots. I hate to waste a good outfit. But seriously — why am I just now figuring this out? Did you guys know that you can use the internet, send text messages and play games on your iPhone as well? I know, I’m still in awe.  Side story: (as if my whole blog isn’t one huge side story) this weekend as we were setting up for the wedding, a lady desperately asked “does anyone have any tools in their car??” I of course heard “jewels” and perked right up. Turns out, jewels are of no worth when a wrench is needed.

    Kendi,

    All these colors fit your personality – bright, happy and hard to ignore,

    On a side note, having English as a second language you cannot imagine the things I hear. But it is always a great for laughs later.
