Smokin’ Hot.

Last week in Austin, Texas, the weather was a gorgeous 70 degrees.  Those of you who have experienced the New York winter will understand that this required a complete clothing overhaul for the trip.  One item I dusted off from the back of my wardrobe selected for my trip was my favourite pair of shorts from Gap’s 1969 denim range.  Sunglasses? Check – these Guess shades now travel everywhere with me.  I also lived in this Ivy Top from Alice Yim’s spring 2012 collection – available in onyx and seashell, if you’re looking for a versatile top for summer that will go with skirts, shorts, jeans, you name it – and that can be dressed up or down, then get thee to Alice Yim now.

Finally, I cannot mention my trip to Austin without telling you about Salt Lick BBQ where I had an amazing evening.  If you’re ever in Austin you absolutely MUST visit this place!  Based just outside of the city, Salt Lick serves mouthwatering barbeque from their vast pit seven days a week.  I even did a little flame grilling there.  Well, sort of…
