I wore this to celebrate my last night in Texas

When a sports bra is this rad, it's just asking to be worn as a top. Right? Right? Part desire to show off the strappy detailing and mesh panels, part desperation to just get a little breeze, this outfit was the most comfortable thing I wore all weekend. Perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but that's fine, I like my tea particularly strong at times. After a long day of presentations and hot weather, it was a such relief to slip off my heels and put on something light and airy for the after party at Garridos.

A trip to Austin isn't complete without a trip to Feathers, easily the most lovely and well-curated vintage boutique I've ever stepped into. As if Debbie Harry, Chrissie Hynde, and Stevie Nicks had a love child. A really rad, occult-loving, guitar-playing love child. I picked up these super wide-leg palazzo pants and a pair of tie-dyed velvet shorts, which will be perfect for fall with a giant sweater.

I LOVE your swallow tattoos so much.

Those pants are killer. And I LOVE the top/sports bra/whatever. My pregnant boobs are ridiculous and I can no longer wear anything like that, but next summer, watch out.

Ashley Elizabeth said...

These photos are just beautiful and I didn't even realize that was a sports bar until I read it! Well done!

Bethany M said...

You are so adorable! I love how your tattoos show with this shirt. :)

I love seeing the kind of risks you take especially because you do it so effortlessly. And the back of that sports bra? So unbelievably fabulous!!

If I had your tummy, I'd wear crop tops and sports bras as tops all the time. Literally every day. Maybe even in a snow storm.

Super cute and you look like you had an awesome time in Texas!


Bostonista said...

PS: I didn't mean for that to be creepy I just wish I could rock a crop!

Laura Neal said...

Oh this is beautiful! I always wish I could carry off these sort of dreamy bohemian looks but you just kill it. :ove when you wear things that showcase your back tattoos too. Perfect

JennaStevie said...

You are rockin the sports bra as a top, I just thought it was a crop top to be honest. Love those pants too, looks incredibly comfortable in the heat!!

BuenoBueno said...

I absolutely love everything about this outfit. The bra works perfectly as top and certainly deserves to be shown off. Can't wait to see those velvet shorts!
