Dago and I were going stir crazy from avoiding ACL Fest over the weekend*, so we went for a little drive. I used to go out to the 360 Bridge lots in college and throughout my childhood, but I hadn't been in a long time. We drove up to the boating dock and were all a-giggles. Since we were next to the water, it was actually pretty chilly outside and I didn't feel so silly wearing my sweater and boots. I know you've seen this skirt a bunch already (here, here, and here) but I can't stop wearing it!

I loved doing something Austin-y that's a little different from our usual haunts. The big rocks of the Wild Basin are so unique and beautiful, both to look at through the car window and to experience closer up and in person. Dago spotted these flowers on a little hill and was like "we have to take photos here!" He's a keeper if there ever was one.

*These were actually taken last weekend, hence the ability to be outside without being totes drenched. 

How was your weekend? Here's a photo of the 360 Bridge for the road!


  1. Nicole, you are so cute! I love that skirt, and those booties are adorable. I love how you and Dago just go and do fun things together, exploring your city and the surrounding areas. I can't wait to be done with grad school so that my weekends can be used for fun things instead of being cooped up in the house doing homework :( May can't come soon enough!! ;)

  2. Cute, cute, cute! If I had that skirt I would wear it all the time, too! Sounds like you guys had a lovely day. I hope your week is amazing and things are going well with your new full-time job!

  3. This is a perfectly casual and comfy looking outfit, while still being pretty and cool. Also, I love your hair in the first picture! It looks so pretty wavy like that, and it has lots of body (which I know is something you've talked about struggling with!).


  4. How cute are you! Love this style, and those ankle booties!

  6. So cute! What a beautiful backdrop. The outfit is very Austin Fall... spring weight but the dark tone of the boots and the sweater transition it perfectly for "fall."
