For a girl who really likes structure in her life… I love days that sweep me up in spontaneous surprises. SXSW always brings with it unexpected moments and new friendships, and today was no exception. This morning, my friend Lauren (editor of Tribeza mag) invited me to a last-minute bloggers’ brunch at the W hosted by the lovely Kelly of the Glamourai. I’ve been recently obsessed with her blog, so I was giddy to sit across from her over brunch and talk blogging, fashion and how NYC really can’t hold a candle to Austin in the tex-mex department. (By the way, that’s her in Glamour’s just-released young & posh portfolio.)

After brunch, we were whisked to the just-opened poolside terrace to sip champagne and mingle. Of course, I was completely distracted by how much I want to throw a party among the white lounges and sleek cabanas in the W’s gorgeous new space.

Although I knew I should head back to my computer to answer the piles of emails from the morning…I couldn’t resist meeting up with my honey for the most delish brick-oven pizzas and hipster-watching at The Backspace. Lovely end to a perfect day. Hey, I didn’t get any work done, but really, isn’t that what SXSW is all about? 😉

    The Glamourai is only of my daily MUST reads! So fun that you got to meet her. The W really would make for such a great pool side party.
