I’m in the midst of an epic love affair with the Hotel Saint Cecilia in Austin, TX. Tony and I recently stayed there on our trip to Austin, became obsessed and now I live there in my dreams. They didn’t pay me to write this, but they did give Tony and me the dopest room upgrade of all time to a three bedroom suite, complete with a private entrance, two porches and an outdoor shower. Naturally, a once in a lifetime gift like that calls for a photo shoot! (Pretty much anything in life calls for a photo shoot, in my book. If it’s not on Instagram, did it ever really even happen??) It was actually our second photo shoot of the weekend. Tony’s a champ.

Tony surprised me with this boho dress as an early birthday present from a nearby Austin boutique, and it perfectly matched the bohemian chic vibe of our suite. From all the time I dedicate to trolling fashion blogs, it’s my understanding that this season’s biggest trend is an elevated, modern take on 70’s style, which perfectly coincided with the decor of the hotel, which looks like the sprawling mansion of any given 1970’s rock band. We’re dying to go back… If they’d be open to a permanent resident, it’s my new fantasy to become the Miss Havisham of Hotel Saint Cecilia.
