Happy Travel Snapshots in Austin

Austin a beautiful mess 1Austin a beautiful mess 1Austin a beautiful mess 1Jeremy and I had three days off in beautiful Austin, Texas this week! We spent our days exploring, snapping photos and relaxing. We're feeling so inspired by this trip. I've been filling up idea journals like crazy. I hope to meet some of you at Sucre's shows this week in Houston, Austin and Dallas (info here). Here are a few snapshots from our time in Austin…

  • Elsie, your blog is so inspirational! I read your tips for bloggers post, and it gave me the extra push to finally start a blog. So thank you! I made a banner for my blog, and used one of your pictures from this post. Check it out and please let me know if you would like me to take your picture out of the banner. I know you have “all rights reserved.”


  • I’m originally from Houston but I always say if I ever move back to Texas, Austin is where I’ll be! I love Austin! My Gentleman and I just made a trip down there in March, we had an amazing time! I blogged about some of the vintage shopping I did there here: http://ladymandthebs.blogspot.com/2012/04/conquered-austin.html

  • Ceci fournit une manière plus facile de mettre l’accent sur des choses dans un rapport. Et il en fait ofcourse diapositives grande. Encore une fois, vraiment comme cette solution minipage!

  • I love how much red is in your photographs – absolutely beautiful!

  • Ahhhh I’m dying to go to Austin! (And Marfa!) My dream trip. SO this is meant as a compliment but may seem weird–I always get confused and think you’re mormon since your blog is so gorgeous and everyone is young and pretty and married : ) but when you post pictures of drinks I remember you aren’t. haha. Hope you guys are having a blast on your trip–I am super amazingly jealous!

  • Great pictures and I love both your sunnies!
    The apple ones make me smile every single time I see them 🙂 Seems like you’ve had a great time with the husband!

  • Your apple sunglasses are just wonderful! I hope you guys are having an amazing time 🙂


  • Yay! I’m from Houston currently living in Austin! If you need suggestions as to finding the quirky gems and hole-in-the-wall spots in Houston, let me know! =)


  • I work on South Congress! It is my favorite part of town. Glad you had a great visit!

  • 1. chocowine is actually delightful
    2. i need those drink prices in my life.
    Looks like fun!

  • Austin is gorgeous– a little haven of artsy-craftiness in the midst of Texas. Great place to visit!!


  • Loved the pictures but more than that your look with yellow, Red & Horse print dress…
    Just WOW…


  • If I was ever asked to choose a blogger from the blogosphere to travel with, I’d choose you. lol. 🙂

  • How fun! My boyfriend went to Austin for work a few months ago and I was super jealous. I have heard Austin described as “Portland with better weather” and that sounds pretty awesome to me! I would love to go sometime soon.


  • Elsie, if you’re in downtown Dallas you seriously MUST go to Lula B’s East. It’s a vintage shop and the entire top level and back half of the bottom is all vintage clothes. I swear I almost died looking through them because there were so many incredible things. Unfortunately I left with relatively nothing because there was no room in my suitcase but the next time I go to Dallas Im driving just for that store alone. I remember thinking of you when I was there because their dresses were just too adorable. Anyways haha I just felt compelled to throw that out there because I know you would be in Heaven. : )

  • OH My god oh my god oh my god! Where are those sunglasses from???

  • Woo, that applemuse drink sounds tasty! Austin is such a cool and hip town that all of my friends rave about, hopefully I get to head there soon. All of your sunnies are rad!


  • You take the most amazing pictures! 🙂


  • These cactus behind Jeremy are the subject of my university essay right now! Seems such a classic american city, like these in the old western films! I love the vibe of the photos!

    (New blog needing some love http://inwhirlofinspiration.blogspot.com )

  • love it! I love your wedges! 🙂


  • I love that the Cocktail menu is called ‘Fancy Drinks’- brilliant!Rx


  • It looks like you had such fun! I love your sunnies and the look of the fancy drinks xx


  • Good morning!

    Wow… it looks like you really had great fun in Texas! I’ve never been there, but after watching your pics, I’m pretty curious about it!

    Congrats, I love it.


  • I like the ‘texas heart’ most…since I was in Texas two years ago, I love it! All the nice people and places….it was wonderful! 🙂

  • Elise they have a FABULOUS vintage store in Dallas called the Virgin Martini I hope you get to go 🙂

  • I would love to go to Austin someday, it is on my list 🙂 though from Denmark there is a long way. Enjoy!

  • Someday you had to tell us your beauty tips, because you have a beautiful skin .. and your hair too! That lipstick you have in the first picture?

    Saludos!! Txiqui

  • I love seeing my austin on your blog!!! South congress is great, but try to venture off of it your next time in town … Northloop has some great vintage stores and the east side has good bars and good people (although, all people here in austin are pretty amazing). yay! ALSO, i’m not sure if y’all are into it, but we have some great bike rental places and bike tours. It’s just one of those places that’s just better to see from a bike!

  • AUSTIN IS THE BEST. My favorite vintage store is down there. Go to Big Bertha’s Basement and meet Henry. He’s fabulous 🙂

  • Getting ready to go to Austin and San Antonio in a couple weeks!! These blog posts are getting me excited for TX!!

  • In Dallas soon!? So wish I was going to be home for that. Looks like you had a great time in Austin- isn’t it such a beautiful city?

  • Love the pictures! Those drinks look amazing!

  • Yum, I want a fancy drink. I don’t even drink that much, but at those prices, why not?

  • I was just in Austin for the first time visiting my brother! Uncommon Objects seriously blew me away. My favorite part was all of the beautiful ephemera! And we stopped at the little Snack Bar, too, after some serious shopping. What an amazing city. Really enjoying your travel snapshots!

  • Love the pics! Looks like you’re having a great time! Enjoy 🙂

  • I’m so in love with Austin!! I live in Houston!! If you ever go to Austin again, see a play at ZACH Theatre! Its adorable!!
