Art on The Edge Gala 2016

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending Art on The Edge at The Blanton Museum of Art here in Austin. It was one of the funnest events I’ve ever been to and reminded me of something you would see on tv, no lie LOL!

The night started with a quick photo opt and then inside to get the party started!

From the amazing band, to the cute hors d’oeuvres, I couldn’t get enough! For starters, I haven’t been to a museum in years so it was really inspiring to experience and admire the art as well as take a peak into their upcoming exhibition Come as You Are: Art of the 1990s — reminding you of all things forgotten about or in my case, molded my childhood.

There was seriously so much to see it was impossible to see it all, which only means another trip back :).

Decided that I wanted to do a lot of shopping in California, but being with 4 dudes and only one other girl, the odds were against me. Although I didn’t get much in, I did find a few pieces that I totally love. I’ve been dying for a vintage pair of Levis and found this pair at Melrose Trading Post. First time I saw MTP was on Instagram but I had no idea what I was in for. This place was SO ginormous, you could seriously spend all day there. I snapped a few pics but for the most part, was trying not to be too overwhelmed, ha!  There’s much more than just clothes, they have jewelry, succulents, vintage cameras, art, candles, the list goes on. If you’re ever in the LA area it’s a must see!

Found this top at Venice beach. Kyle and I walked the entire boardwalk, and kind of like MTP, it goes on forever. I really liked this top just because it’s so different and definitely think it could be dressed up with a cute pair of high wasted shorts, and some wedges.  Obvi, being in Cali, I decided to wear it to the beach and dress it down.

Hope y’all are enjoying the recent posts and plan on going through the rest of my pics this weekend 🙂 xo

special thanks to Sonny for snapping some shots!

Have I mentioned I’m moving to California?! Seriously SO perfect here and everything is absolutely gorgeous. We drove down to Venice our first day here and had so much fun walking up and down the boardwalk with all the little shops. I could definitely people watch all day here.  Keeping it super real I went California chill for a day at the beach. Love that feeling. xo
