Y’all may have noticed a few #HousePartyInTheHills Instagrams last week as we prepped for the biggest party I’ve ever thrown at my house. I teamed up with WhoWhatWear for a poolside fête during sxStyle, inviting tastemakers who were in town for the festival to join us for snacks off the grill by Launderette and beats by DJ Honeycomb. Thank heavens the weather cooperated and we gathered on a sunshine-y late afternoon and mingled as the sun went down. Excited to share all the party details today – click through for the festivities!
*Big thanks to our party partners!
The Margot Blair team helped transform my backyard terrace into a party-ready oasis.
Since no fashion party is complete without a #selfie station, Alyssa Leanne Hoppe was in from Brooklyn to create a stunning backdrop.

The courtyard on the side of my house was a great place for guests to kick off their heels. Panacea Collection (an incredible new Austin source for party rentals) created these cool lounge-y spots to hang.
The tables made a great spot to perch a glass of bubbly, too.
Party time! This coffee table arrangement with kumquats and foliage was my fave.

Those blooms!! Margot Blair definitely brought the profusion of color and springtime vibes.
The Launderette menu was straight out of my dreams:
- whipped burrata with cashew, brown butter, black mission fig
- crab toast with fennel aioli, avocado, caper-mint vinaigrette
- beef tartare with truffle vinaigrette & habanero mustard
- grilled brussels sprouts with pea puree & mint serrano oil
- tandoori shrimp with coconut chutney, chile, & mint
- pork yakitori with tamarind glaze
With Launderette’s co-owner and executive chef Rene Ortiz. I’m such a fan — the restaurant is one of my faves in town, and Rene and I just shot a fun cooking segment together that I can’t wait to share next week.
Wishing our ivy wall could always have fuchsia roses climbing up to the top…

Toasting the beginning of rosé season!

It was a sea of stylish accessories.
Crab toast for the win.
Guests took home these super cute Outdoor Voices totes (with some store credit tucked inside) to inspire #DoingThings festival-style.
