We had such an amazing time in Marfa! There’s nothing like a long weekend away to reset and refresh. We stayed at El Paisano Hotel, truly one of the dreamiest hotels I’ve visited. It is best known for hosting the cast and crew during the filming of the 1955 movie Giant, including James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor. I will put together a full Marfa travel diary together in a later post, but this old-world hotel (and dress!) deserved its own moment.

Marfa’s landscape, pastel buildings, and El Paisano’s retro feel acted as the perfect backdrop for this dress. I snagged it from Reformation a few years ago and it has been in my rotation ever since. I am convinced that Reformation can do no wrong at this point. They’ve mastered the modern it girl meets ultra feminine aesthetic. Given the chance, I would happily build an entire wardrobe out of Reformation and Madewell pieces.

And let’s talk about these shoes for a minute. I got them from Amazon for TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS. I kid you not. Go get them immediately! They are so comfortable, go with a lot more outfits than you would think, and cheap as hell. Plus, a lady at the hotel said, “I like your slippers, you wild thing, you.” Seriously, there’s not a reason not to get them.
