Austin Fashion Week 2012

Austin has recently wrapped up it’s third Fashion Week. Before we all move on to New York Fashion Week which kicks off tomorrow, we must recap Austin Fashion week.  Below were some of my favorite runway looks by photographer Aurora Reyes from a fabulous week of fashion.

Fashionable words

I’ll be the first to admit I was never a big fan of wearing words on t-shirts when it came to myself or my kids until this fabulous Carrie Bradshaw moment that we all remember.  It’s been a couple years since this look was a big hit but lately it seems words on t-shirts has become all the rage.  Here are some fun looks I’ve loved!

Now I shall be on the search for the perfect “word” t-shirt as I’m totally ready to rock this look!

Crazy for green!

Lately I’ve found myself somewhat obsessed with green…lime green, grass green, sea green.  As I look around my house and closet, it’s everywhere. Whether it be a freshly painted green door, green plants, green trees that surround our new house, green cabinets in the office, green bathroom, green top, green jeans or something that just happens to have pops of green in it…green, green, green!  I absolutely love green.  I’ve taken my green obsession out to the fashion world.  Here are some looks that inspire me with pops of my oh so lovely fave color (for now)…GREEN!

Green on top or green on bottom?!?!?!?

Regardless of how you pair green, it’s been a great summer color and will be even better to take into the fall!

Long time no see & now lets move on to Fashion Week!

Well, it’s been quite a while since I’ve blogged. Unfortunately, I went through a big travel spree with work on top of a move and I quickly figured out I couldn’t do it all which resulted in making the hard decision to take a break from this blog and the fashion world. But, now that we’re officially in our new home, work travel will die down for at least another 3 weeks and with Austin Fashion Week upon us, I figure now is a better time than ever to kick this baby back up…and I hope this time I can keep it going! Before we jump back into the fashion world, here are some of our happenings that have contributed to keeping me away from the blogging world.

Good-bye old home….

Hello new home…

We’ve only been in our new house for a week now and for obvious reasons we refer to it as a “disaster zone” as we remain in the middle of a remodel which equates into no hot water, dishwasher, washer & dryer, stove, oven, microwave & lots of trash…fun times! Due to heat and all of the above, I’ve had very little fashion inspiration but have come by some home inspiration.

From our new white living room, to the new white kitchen, white on white is the big theme in our new house. Of course, “the bolder the better” right…so I can’t resist some major pops of colors which will come from our collection of books which are waiting patiently on the floor for book shelves to be installed to green cabinet doors in the very white kitchen to a lime green floor in the kids room.

Alright alright alright…enough about me and our happenings….lets get on to fashion!  Can’t wait to fill you in on what is to come during Austin Fashion Week which begins tomorrow. See you soon!
