Mary Liz, Chelsea,
Mr. Buzz Bumbles and I spent the Fall Break of our senior year at ACL! To be
totally honest, I’m more of a makeup junkie than a music buff, so I didn’t know
what to expect from the Festival. But I had the BEST time listening to all the
artists! Wet hair be damned, dancing in the pouring ran to Kings of Leon’s song
“Sex on Fire” amplified my entire weekend. Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Kendrick Lamar
and Vampire Weekend were also some of my favorites.
ACL cancelled the
last day of the Festival because of heavy rain, so we spent the day exploring
Austin. Eating, of course, was the main focus and the trailer eateries did not
disappoint! Lard Have Mercy, Hey Cupcake! and Bananarchy were deep-fried deliciousness. There’s just no city even
comparable to Austin- The scene offers such a unique vibe with its funky street
art and original boutiques. I can’t wait for my next visit!

      Thank you! I've actually owned these cowboy boots since 7th grade- Remember when Abercrombie jean mini skirts paired with cowboy boots was the hottest look?!
