Southby Style Continued… SXSW Music


As Southby week continues to rage on, so does the influx of people, events and of course, style selections.

Heading into SXSW music, I like to update my look by moving to an edgier, more “concert-goer” place, so I can properly mix and mingle with the music loving crowd that is *slightly* different than those that are here for Interactive.

I like to take a statement piece and throw it alongside some of my go to basics in order to quickly and easily look ready for the show.


For this outfit, I grabbed this statement bodysuit I snagged at the Nastygal sale (RIP OG Nastygal, but you can still shop their site under new ownership!), and paired it with a go to black maxi [mine is Lovers & Friends LA; similar styles available at Revolve here, here and for an even edgier look try here] and pair of black booties [Rebecca Minkoff – now on sale here]. I threw on my FAVORITE little black bag – the appropriately named Saint Laurent Blogger Bag in black (equally cute, but slightly more affordable black crossbody available here by Rebecca Minkoff).


When I shot, weather wasn’t permitting  (thanks to Austin’s oh-so-predictable weather…), so I added the booties for warmth, but they can also add an edgy touch to a look by pairing them with a maxi. (Note that you want to be sure you’re proportions are still on and you’re showing the right amount of skin; I recommend a maxi with a slit like the one I’m wearing here). This look can be easily converted in warmer weather with a tank style bodysuit and gladiator flats.

 You can pair the whole ensemble with a good black floppy hat (I just spent too much this month – standard me – and had no money leftover for the hat…)

Hope all you Austin visitors are enjoying Southby… now I’ve gotta get to the show myself… see ya next time.
