Opening it’s doors just little over a month, the mastermind behind this modern ranch chic restaurant, Adam Jacoby, has truly hit a note of perfection. Inspired by his family restaurant in Melvin, an underlying thread of his true Texas roots takes hold of chic city living at this superb spot overlooking the best patio view of the Colorado River. The indoor bar with the great local beer + adorable deer head coasters feels like I am back in one of my favorite Chelsea haunts (It’s so well designed, but this is actually authentic!). Walking out through the barn doors to the amazing back porch feels like you’ve waltzed upon a 1000 acre ranch in the middle of the Hill Country. Pleasantly confronted with a 180 view of a beautiful Texas sky + a part of Austin I’d never seen, we greatly enjoyed the sunset view. Gazing over the water from the long wooden tables adorned with tasteful succulents + cactus whilst sipping on blue mason jars and munching on a super fresh charcuterie, we almost thought we’d made it to urban ranch heaven! The delicious train of amazing dishes + super service just added to the twilight sparkle. (The food is to die for … all sourced locally!) This is a twist of Austin at its finest. So, go go go before the frenzy begins … I assure you it will with this one …
For this Modern Ranch Date Night, we suggest snappy easy breezy attire with layers of fun colorful jewels:
- RIFLE + RADFORD Rafferty Stud Earrings - Sea Foam Chalcedony
- J.Crew Sophie Small Crossbody Bag
- T by Alexander Wang Jersey Tank in Sky Blue

I recently had the pleasure of touring the hometown and true source of inspiration of the head lady behind R + R & one of my best gals, Melanie. A highlight on our adventure around Austin and the surrounding area was definitely Driftwood Estate Winery. During our memorable visit, we sat on a bluff, sipped our favorite Longhorn Red and enjoyed the majestic vista. The Hill Country has tons of other hidden gems which I won’t divulge in this post, but let’s just say it includes a little bit of two-steppin’ and a lot of delicious BBQ.
An easy ensemble for a hot Texas day:
- Madewell Shiftpleat Dress in Diamond Floral
- R + R Eulalie Single Drop Earrings
- R + R Reese Horizontal Necklace
- R + R Riley Tennis Bracelet - Pyrite
- Annie Williams Leather Clutch
If you haven’t taken a trip down to this Lone Star State, I highly recommend it & be sure to have an expert tour guide with you like I did.
It’s that time of year again in NYC! Heels are hitting the pavement and models are hitting the runway. Here are some of our favorite looks, so far, from New York Fashion Week paired up with our favorite R + R jewels!
Oscar de la Renta sent quintessentially feminine and flattering frocks down the runway. His floral embroidered coat is absolutely to die for! We love it with a pair of Stella Chandelier Earrings + the Tallulah Bar Necklace.
We can’t help but admire Theory’s luxurious simplicity. A well cut, white Theory dress is a wonderful palette for layering your R + R jewels. For example, we love it with the Ora Pendant Necklace, Petite Clementine Horizontal Necklace, Sydney Statement Solitaire Ring, + Petite Rosie Studs
For Spring ‘15, Tibi is all about fluidity and Asian + South American influences. One of the results is this breathtaking watercolor dress. The Luna Ocean Jasper Necklace is perfectly complementary, along with the Aven Single Drop Earrings + the Piper Statement Solitaire Ring.
Monique Lhuillier, an authority on all things evening wear, ventured deeper into the realm of daywear for her Spring ‘15 collection. Her pieces shimmer with iridescence and we R + R gals love a little sparkle! Some luminous jewels to go with a luminous Lhuillier: Eryn Horizontal Necklace, Anastasia Petite Coin Necklace, Petite Phoebe Studs, Verdia + Prehnite Nesting Rings
Trends We Love:
——> White is making an appearance all over New York Fashion Week. It’s refreshingly graceful and simple, as shown by Theory.
——> While we love a good tailored item, like Oscar de la Renta’s embroidered coat or Lyn Devon’s swing coat, we also noticed that some more loosely structured, flourishing outfits have made their way onto the runway. See: Tibi.
——> Lyn Devon and Monique Lhuillier referenced the Bahamas and Bermuda, respectively in their collections. We love the rosy and peachy hues!
Happy Fashion Week!!
Xx, The R + R Ladies

Being our first time on the tiny Island, we soaked up everything we possibly could … Viewing the collapsing clay cliffs, touring the iconic gingerbread houses, munching on much-need fresh lobster + festive cocktails, breathing in the wharf’s cool ocean air, vista-seeking from the top of the lighthouses and walking amongst the gorgeous Cape Cod style cottages, we couldn’t get enough of this picturesque place.
