As you may know, my family is everything to me and I count myself one lucky girl that I recently got to spend extra time in Texas, with my daughter and her family. So while there, got to do a bit of sightseeing, which included a visit to Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas. If you like music like I do, this place is one for the bucket list. You can read more about ithere but the likes of Loretta Lynn, Willie, Lyle Lovett and Leon Russell are just a few of the artists that have performed there. A couple years back, my daughter, husband and I did enjoy a band there one evening and a couple of beers....what fun evening. But this particular day (for the photo shoot), the Bacon Brothers (Kevin Bacon) were playing that night and had just arrived in their motorcoach. I tried everything to get my kids to go with me... just in case Kevin broke out in a Footloose dance... but it did not work out. Next time!!
The town of Gruene, just outside New Braunfels, offers a quaint perspective of small town Texas. Fun shopping, good restaurants and the chance to tube in the cold, clear water of the two local rivers.
For my visit to the one and only Gruene Hall I chose one of a kind jeans. Who can truly say they have "one of a kind" jeans. Luckily, some of us can say,"I do!" These "holy" jeans are from Punkie's Place and feature Our Lady of Guadalupe and serape print fabric! Contact Punkie for adding these awesome jeans to your wardrobe! This black silk blouse is from the closet but find similar in the here. My espadrilles are Sam Edelman and if you missed them in a previous post, they are super comfy... I would grab them while you still can as they will take you through the fall! These cool Quay Australia Vivienne Aviator Sunglasses are a wardrobe staple and at this price... I am adding them in Metallic, too! This snakeskin Hobo clutch is a classic and can compliment any outfit... and after 10 years continues to offer style. Similar styles below. Last but not least, the skull bracelet by Tarina Tarantino is over the top! Check out all these items in the gallery at the end of the post!
Even though I did not get to see the Bacon Brothers, every time I go to the New Braunfels area, Gruene Hall will be on the list; good music, good bands and good company! And maybe, just maybe, I will be footloose!
Until next time and as always, thanks for reading!
