While staying at the lake house a few weekends back, we decided to drive into Llano just before sunset. We crossed the Llano river into the main part of town and found the coolest little movie theater on the square. It glowed in the sunlight and had all the charm of an old vintage theater. I could just imagine the marquee lit up and the seats filled with school-age students later that evening as everyone met up for a Saturday night movie. It took me back to my own days growing up in a small town and was a perfect spot to photograph my outfit, which also harkens back to my style from my school days.
It was a warm autumn day and I wore a pink one-piece swimsuit as a bodysuit tucked into skinny jeans. I love that bodysuits have come back because they make for a really low maintenance outfit. No worrying about keeping things tucked or staying mindful of hanging fabrics. I just got this long-sleeve navy velvet bodysuit and it’s perfect for wearing under big winter coats while still looking chic when the jacket comes off. It would look amazing paired with a sequin skirt like this one or this one for a holiday party or NYE celebration! I donned my favorite cardigan over the swimsuit to keep the chill off as the sun sank lower.
I also wore my purple leather Vans old skool sneakers, which are another easy-to-wear favorite in my closet. They’re great for lots of walking, jumping, longboarding…whatever you’re doing! Tortoise frame sunglasses and this little crossbody bag that I’ve been wearing all season were the finishing touches. I wrapped the chain of the bag inside the flap to wear it shorter on my torso. Just like wearing a swimsuit as a bodysuit top, it’s a quick fashion hack to wear some of the pieces in your wardrobe a different way.
A few minutes from the theater was a good vantage point overlooking the Llano river. Ten days before these pictures were taken, we’d been getting so much rain in the hill country that the river had risen to the bottom of the bridge! As we walked across the rocks we spotted lots of debris that was left behind when the rainwater receded. It was incredible to stand there and imagine the volume of water that must have flowed down the river!
We headed back to the house after poking around the town just in time to pull some venison steaks out of the smoker for supper. I’ll be sharing some morning lake views from the house in my next post!
