Outfit Post – Preppy Military – What I wore out last night

……is that what this outfit is?  Preppy Military?   I don’t know, but at least I have reached outside my yooose (yooouse = usual : for all you non-slang, phonetic device dependent writers) of vintage/preppy/grandmother “go to” theme.

Outfit: Genetic Denim “Shane” bottoms purchased through their website, Gap button down, splater painted scarf from “Something Else” purchased at Intermix Online, Clarks Originals desert boots purchased at Whole Earth Provisions Austin, jacket is vintage and purchased at Protoype here in Austin

Perhaps it’s preppy military.  And, perhaps it is warm enough to wear to an outside party at a local restaurant/bar called Bangers.  And, comfortable enough for one to wear out on an evening when you aren’t sure how much walking one is going to do due to the fact that 9 million F1 racing fans are going to be in town eating, drinking, taking up parking spaces, and spending money in our fair city.  Read: AWESOME.  And, by the way Austin knows how to do big events and big festivals right.  ACL, SXSW, FFF…  If you are reading this and haven’t attended one of the above.  Get here in 2013!

 
So, the details – last night the hubs aka “darlin’ man” and I took the bus downtown to Rainey Street to support Love-A-Bull at a Pints for Pits party at the before mentioned Bangers.  Ate a veggie banger made with beets and goat cheese.  Mmmm.  And, then we took a pedi-cab over to the happenings downtown.  Where we saw some super cool cars, listened to some music – including Tejano – watched some fancy flashing lights from some temporary stages set up for race fans.

Fast, mini Mini cars on a very sophisticated track. Take that Circuit of the Americas!

VROOOOOM

We also tried to sneak past the long line at The W (pshaw!), got busted (embarASSing) doing so…yipes.  So we skulked down the street and took the party elsewhere (someplace without a line, suckas).  We got served along side some gorgeous French ladies a HUGE glass of wine at Malverde by a surly bartender.   (What was his deal?!  Gorgeous French ladies!  What could be so bad?!)  Music was buuumpin’ – DJ Chicken George kicks serious butt-ola..  We were surrounded by people having fun, dancing, and speaking with foreign accents.  It was fun!

Malverde

In other news…Hubs and I decided we want to move to Europe to live before we die or get too old to walk down ancient stairways.  So there.

XOXOX
