curated guide | May 2019

May 1, 2019

It’s gonna be {a busy} May- this month we’re fêting our favorite fashion events of the year, two holiday weekends, and the perfect accessories to accompany your summer adventures!

1 | Vintage influences + pops of color make everything from summer luncheons to Sunday brunch feel inspired, thanks to Tory Burch’s new tabletop home collection, available exclusively on Moda Operandi.

2 | As the saying goes, mom knows best, so let Mother Nature be the ultimate hostess for a memorable Mother’s Day. Whether it’s family time or me time, mom can enjoy lakeside chats, wellness activities, farm-to-table dining and so much more at Lake Austin Spa Resort.

3 | Shed the Monday blues with Met Gala coverage and this year’s theme Camp: Notes on Fashion. The annual gala, hosted on the first Monday in May, is THE source for event design and fashion inspiration; we may not be in school, but we’ll definitely be taking notes.

4 | We can’t wait for summer itineraries filled with seaside escapes and of-the-moment shell adorned accessories are the ideal trend to complement a breezy vacay wardrobe.

5 | Must-Attend Local Event: Come hungry for three days of Texas-sized fun on Memorial Day Weekend at this year’s Hot Luck Festival, where there’s no shortage of what Austinites love most: delectable food, creative beverages, and of course, live music. Curated by local icon and James Beard Award-winner Chef Aaron Franklin + partners, this festival showcases culinary talent from across the country. Pictured here is one of our favorite bites from the 2018 fest: pâté grilled cheese sandwiches from James Beard Nominated Chef Steve McHugh of Cured San Antonio.

6 | We’ll be donning our darling derby attire as we celebrate the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby May 4th. Local in Austin and looking for a watch party with a purpose? Check out The Shade Project’s Down & Derby Fundraiser, where you’ll be whisked off to the races!
