Is it Friday yet? As I am writing this post I am currently getting stared down by 5 hungry dogs wondering where their dinner is… Four large dogs + tiny Steven that all want their dinner at 4:45pm. I guess I’ll be putting this post on hold yet again today until their appetites are satisfied! If I haven’t mentioned, I am house sitting and watching my dad + step mom’s four search & rescue dogs. Talk about time consuming! It’s like I have 4 large kids that only want to play and can only whine when they need something. Not to mention, Steven… the antagonist! They are all extremely intelligent but definitely know how to push my buttons to get what they want. We’ve had sunbathing time about 8 times today! Alright, alright, enough dog talk… If you want to keep that going just go to my Instagram and watch my Stories! 🙂
Most of y’all know renovating houses is in my blood. I went to school for Architecture solely because I grew up renovating and building homes with my dad so the always having to be re-doing something bug is a part of me now. I purchased my first home back in May of 2015 and it was a complete gut job. I think the only person who thought that house was perfect the way it was is my hippie husband. He loved the popcorn ceilings and WALLS… yes, walls… and the 2 inch thick Spanish tile covering the floors. I mean, they had even put parquet flooring on the walls… Anyway, the house was a total gut job straight out of the 70s. As I’m writing this I realized I never did a before and after of my entire house remodel. When my house is actually finished, clean and organized I will get that post up!

TGIF, friends!! I thought this weekend would never get here. I just got back home from a long job in Dallas and can’t wait to hang out and relax in my own bed this weekend! Before I start my relaxing weekend I wanted to share some of my fun styling tips for sun-kissed style from summer into Fall. These tips are a great way to style some of your favorite pair of denim shorts, booties that can easily work for Fall and slouchy sweaters that are sure to turn heads. For me, a great sun-kissed style look is all about finding a great pair of denim cut offs and pairing it with a comfy sweater.

Is anyone else craving Fall weather as much as I am? You guys, it’s literally only 37 days until the official first day of fall. I really don’t know how much more of this 100+ degree Texas weather I can handle! I know it might not seem like the weather is getting anywhere near fall weather right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start shopping for fall pieces once that cool breeze starts to sneak in.
How was everyone’s weekend? I feel like the last couple of days just flew by and now I’m prepping for yet another job out of town. I had mentioned my mom was coming in town in my last post and we had so much fun, I was sad to see her leave. If you’ve been following my Instagram Stories you got a peek into our weekend and how she took half of my furniture with her! By now, most of y’all know I have a habit of renovating and had started painting my brick fireplace white. My house doesn’t get a ton of light with all of the trees outside so I felt it needed a little refresher to lighten up the room. With that finished, most of my furniture didn’t really fit anymore, so she decided to take them off my hands! Such a sweet mom! 😜 Now it looks like I just moved in my house with absolutely no furniture or decor! Time to shop!
Did anyone else think today was Friday? I literally had a day to sleep in for once, woke up, got ready to do errands and completely blanked and didn’t realize it was Thursday. Anyway, my mom is coming in town from LA for the weekend and I am about to leave to go pick her up from the airport and head to a fun dinner. Talk about excited!! I haven’t seen her in what feels like months! With that being said I’ve gotta bust a move at getting this post live for you guys!
Hello, August! Is anyone else blown away that Fall is literally less than 2 months away?? I seriously feel like summer just started and that we were just celebrating the holidays. Time is flying by and it’s a little scary! At least while time is flying by we will all look super stylish. 🙂 I’ve rounded up my top posts from July that are all still in stock for the most part. Quite a few of these posts were a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so they HAVE gone up to full price, but they are all available and back in stock.
I know quite a few of y’all aren’t signed up for LiketoKnow.it so this gives you the opportunity to shop my favorite, still in-stock looks. Did you know, you can also shop ALL of my Instagram posts from my website directly at www.dtkaustin.com/shopinstagram?
How is this weekend already over?? Am I the only one that thought the last couple of days flew by? I was expecting a relaxing weekend filled with rain and snuggles with Steven but it was the complete opposite… Sunny, humid, 105 degrees outside and lots of house work. Even though it’s so hot outside I still keep getting all of the Fall feels with winter wear already making an appearance! Something I wanted to focus on with today’s post is adding some fun accessories to your more simple outfits in the fall. I am always on the hunt for edgier pieces to spice up my outfits and recently came across Jenny Bird.

Y’all. I never thought this day would come… The end of the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is only THREE days away! Could I have sounded anymore like a broken record the past few weeks?? I apologize to anyone who got extremely annoyed with my persistent posting but if y’all understand what this sale means, then you know you need to shop fast! This year’s NSALE was definitely one for the books and so much different than any other Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to date. Not only did things sell out fast, which was to be expected, but NOTHING was restocked. For those of y’all who are still interested in shopping the last few days of this sale I’ve created 11 scrollers in different categories with what is left in full size runs. I do suspect that some things will be selling out as I am writing this post, but fingers crossed some of these goodies are left.
Hello, Friday! With the beginning of fall slowly creeping around the corner it is time to start bringing out all of your fall staples. Are you kidding me… How is Fall less than 2 months away?! As for me, you’ll see the color black in about 95% of the outfits I’ll be wearing throughout the season. I always say Fall is the time that you’ll see me in ALL black again! For me, it is the season to be rocking as much black as you want without dying in the Texas heat. Maybe wait until November so you don’t die of a heat stroke since our Fall consists of 80 degree weather with absolutely no chance of snow, EVER.
