I just got back from Texas and I am so excited to share my adventures with y’all!
It was a disaster getting from Newark airport to Austin but after a missed flight, my brother being stopped by security, a transfer in Houston, and a man having a heart attack on our plane we finally got to Texas! As soon as we landed we had to quickly get dressed and catch the bus to the rehearsal dinner. I know my family curse is being late to everything but we were really cutting it close! In the Houston airport I was straightening my hair and putting on a full face of makeup which was getting me a lot of weird looks in the airport bathroom.
The whole reason we went to Texas was to go to my cousins wedding. It was a gorgeous Texan theme that looked like it came out of a Martha Stewart magazine. Everything was done perfectly!
I was afraid to get dressed for the wedding because this look is not my normal one. But hey, when on vacation try something new, right?
I chose a floor length dress with a very high slit (which became a big pain in the butt as it got really windy later that evening) and went with a statement red lip. I was inspired by my friend who never wears a boring color and always has a bold lip look. (Thanks Miss Victoria 😉 ) I got the lipstick for free as my Sephora birthday present because I never would have bought it myself. All of my lipsticks are shades of pink and one Chanel red I rarely wear. I became obsessed with this look and see myself using this shade more often in the future.

Awesome ideas to have beer carrying donkeys at the wedding !
This was just day one of Texas with a lot more adventures ahead!
