A couple weeks ago the fam and I headed to Maupin. Yes, that’s actually a city in Oregon. It’s super teensy and right off the Deschutes River. Beautiful. We had a sort of fancy camping trip. We didn’t sleep in a tent and pee’d in toilets. Ha! That’s my kind of “camping”.

It’s a small trip we take with my husband’s family once a year. Zero cell service + river + coffee + family = lovely weekend.

3-times-a-week-style: Austin

Texas Style Council Prom Style //

3-times-a-week-style: I gotta say… the most stylish I’ve been in MONTHS was while I was in Austin. Yes, hot/sweaty/104 degrees + humid Austin. It was pretty much 4 days straight of all the makeup and pretty clothes…. I was sweaty and stylin’. Ha! BUT, it’s pretty hard to NOT be inspired by all the pretty dressed ladies (and like 3 guys) at the Texas Style Council.

Also, I’ve realized I keep mentioning how HOT Austin was, but I want to also say how that city is awesome. That’s what I’ve been forgetting to mention. It’s full of good food and neat shopping. Especially the South Congress area. The next time I make it out to the city, I plan on going during a non-super hot time. I’m guessing winter would be great (it would be like summer in Portland).

Even with the heat, it was a good week for my ‘dress nice for at least 3 times a week‘ goal. You know… cause usually I prefer to wear yoga pants 95% of thee time. Do you have any similar goals?
