Quick Trip to Austin

We went to Austin, Texas this month for the first time for a wedding.  I have a few more outfit posts from the weekend, but here are some shots from around town.

We had a great time and enjoyed the in-the-70's weather and change of landscape. The food at Lambert's was definitely a highlight, as well as at Enoteco Vespaio. I was also able to finally make it to the Kendra Scott store on South Congress and also an Amy's Ice Cream.  The Driskill was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the food and entertainment at their Santa breakfast were wonderful.
