It’s only been a few hours since I landed home from Austin, and I’m already missing that city. I’ve been to Austin, Texas once before on a work trip, but I’ve always wanted to go to SXSW {read: South By Southwest, but, if you’re a local or regular festival goer, you better call it South By}. One thing I really like about SXSW is that you have the opportunity to hear so much music, and not just from bands you’re familiar with. When I was in high school and college I used to love discovering new music. I’d admit that Myspace had something to do with that haha! But, nevertheless, it was a big part of my life, and sadly, it’s been an afterthought in recent years. So, going to Austin, walking around 6th Street {the Dirty Sixth if you’re a local}, and hopping in an out of restaurants and bars to hear bands play was so fun. The city was full of music, from sunrise to sunset. Even our hotel featured some up and coming artists. This trip wouldn’t have been possible without Nine West and Nylon Mag so I’m so grateful to them for including me. Here’s my FESTIVAL DIARY from SXSW!

The prettiest chocolates were waiting for me at the hotel by Maggie Louise Confections. They were almost too pretty to eat..almost!

I wore by Cynthia Vincent Dress with my Nine West espadrille flats for walking around the city. I’d highly recommend wearing flats for the day so your feet don’t get sore!

Hillside Pharmacy was such a cute breakfast spot! It has a quaint and retro interior and the food was amazing. I got the Fried Egg Sandwich with Avocado and Fried Green Tomatoes. I would totally recommend it!! Also, any place that serves Stumptown Coffee is A+ in my book!

Speaking of coffee…a trip to Jo’s is a must! Their Iced Turbo is such a great drink on a hot Austin day. It’s sweet and creamy with coffee, espresso, hazelnut, chocolate and cream!

Austin, I miss you already and I can’t wait to go back! Thank you Nine West for including me on this super fun trip!! I felt like I ate my way through the city while hearing the best music. Until next time, Texas!
