If there’s one thing I love, it’s a reason to get dressed.  And I don’t mean a typical cocktail event or a black tie affair.  I MEAN, A LEGIT EVENT….where specific attire isn’t necessarily required, but you’ll stand out if you aren’t feeling the same vibes as everyone else.

Next weekend, I am heading to Austin City Limits, otherwise known as ACL, and I must admit….this is my FIRST music festival and I have never felt this much pressure in my  entire life! I want to to effortless, cool, hip, yet chic and classic…..OMG WHY IS THERE SO MUCH PRESSURE?!

But one thing I feel no pressure about is where I am going to rest my head after a long day of concerts.  Thanks to HomeAway, this the easiest and most unforgettable travel experience I’ve had in a really long time! They have an online marketplace of over a million vacation rentals in nearly 190 countries….and when it came to booking a last minute place to stay in Austin for ACL, they were my first choice!

Their online site or mobile app allow you to navigate properties based on on location, price per night, amount of rooms, or amenities. Take Austin for example: There are still tons of badass HomeAway listings that haven’t been booked yet for the second weekend of ACL! (Ps I can’t wait for y’all to see the amazing art gallery inspired space that I have rented….talk about interior design porn…my Instagram page might light on fire from how hot this listing is!) But the most legit part of having a vacation rental versus a hotel that I am most excited about is that they provide so much more space in places I want it (hello, full kitchen!) for half of the cost of a hotel! So round up your friends, head to Austin, and split the cost of a HomeAway rental for ACL!

And thanks to HomeAway, who is one of the sponsors of this year ACL music festival, they are offering two 3-day VIP passes for the second weekend of ACL to come hang with me! See the rafflecopter below to enter this contest and listen to a great weekend of music!

But back to the clothes…WHAT DO I NEED TO PACK?!

Have a great time in Austin!

      Hi Courtney!!! ACL is so much fun! I think it’s all about the sunglasses and accessories. I would keep it simple with a tee and distressed shorts or jeans and play with jewelry and funky glasses. I love wildfox glasses. Party it up in VIP would love to join.

    You look great and will have so much fun at ACL, but don’t even think about wearing heels. Wear your fave boots, a hat that breathes and a cute crossbody bag. You rock!
