Current Music.

Summer is upon us. Festival season kicked off last month with SXSW.

Here are my current jams to kick off the summer season. All of the songs are magical, but if you only want to listen to one, I highly recommend J-Louis ft. ZARCARI, Heaven Sent. The smooth beat and soft vocals makes this song addictive and perfect for summer chill out sessions.

ACL Festival Hair

How should one do their hair for ACL when it’s still hot as shit? Simple, use anti-humidity products and add a braid. It’s effortless, and we all know that I’m about that life.

Here, I used Garnier Fructis Curl Sculpting Cream-Gel to keep my curls. I have been using this product for years and it’s definitely a holy grail product. It keeps my natural curls in tact. I also used John Freida’s Expert Finish Polishing Serum to control the frizz–or at least some of it. I don’t have an opinion about this product yet, but so far so good. And I have been obsessed with the one braid look. It looks even cooler with my ombred hair! This hair was made for music festivals.

Jam on, ya’ll. Jam on.

Shirt: CottonOn | Shoes: SUAVS | Skirt: Forever21

No matter the time of year, I cannot get away from basic pieces. Due to this “problem,” I like to mix up basics with a variety of textures. In this outfit, I incorporated acid wash, sheer fabric and leather (the strap in my shoes). I also added some hammered out gold studs to finish off tomboy look with a feminine addition. Dark lips because it’s Fall!

Three things make this post very special:

1) It’s taken by an Austin photographer, Leandra Blei.
2) My earrings are locally made in Austin by a jewelry designer named Lara Wymore of Lotus Designs (she isn’t on social media, sorry!).
3) My sneakers are from a line based in Austin called SUAVS, I’ve written about them for one of my Designer Focuses.

So, I guess the lesson is…support your local businesses, kids!
