South Congress ATX

I could spend day after day strolling up and down South Congress in Austin old stomping grounds, post-college. It had been 4 years since my last I figured while I was home in Dallas for the holidays, I would stop by ATX a few days and get my fix. The city has grown so much in my absence, but has somehow remained kind of the same, if that makes sense. All of the old restaurants and live music venues I knew are still there...and South Congress is still the trendy spot to eat/drink/shop etc... just more variety to choose from these days. I met up with one of my college pals (more like a sister) and hit our favorites on 'so-co'...street vendors selling jewelry, musicians playing guitars on the sidewalk, pit stopping for queso, browsing the boutiques, and my all time fave....afternoon beers at Hotel San Jose. Right when I saw they were $3, I knew I definitely wasn't in LA anymore....oh how I miss those days :/

Denim on denim seemed the way to go for this casual day in Austin....with my Dr Marten boots that are officially broken in. It got so cold as the sun went down that I layered on my new (faux) fur vintage jacket with an over-sized scarf. I felt bad my friend was freezing and let her wear my beanie...
Missing Austin already!!

  1. Love this and ATX misses you already! I'm looking out from my office window right now seeing your hotel and wishing we were meeting up for a San Jose Champassion after work. :-)
