I recently wrote an article for Austin Woman Magazine about what timeless style is all about. With this project, I styled and modeled multiple outfit examples of what a 20 year old all the way to a 60 year old could easily pull off. I feel like lately I have been hearing so many people in their 40s-60s wondering if their style was too old looking for them but they weren’t sure how to pull off similar looks that I was personally wearing. It’s not about how to pull off exact looks that I am sharing with everyone, it’s about implementing certain pieces with your current wardrobe to help build your own style that fits your personality and age. A 60 year old doesn’t have to dress like a 60 year old but can mix in those pieces that fit their style better. Most tell me they don’t feel 40, 50 or even 60, they feel 30 but don’t want people to think they are trying too hard to be young again. This magazine article has 5 looks for any occasion that ANYONE at ANY age can pull off.
I literally write this in all of my roundups but really, how is it October?? I feel like I just did my last Instagram roundup a few days ago and not it’s already time for another! Even though the weather is scorching in Texas still I have tried to incorporate as many Fall looks into my Instagram and blog as I can. I’ve rounded up the top posts from September that all have products still in stock and ready to shop!

Hello, Fall!! I am so excited to bring out all of my Fall goodies now that the weather is finally cooling off. That means, cozy sweaters, cardigans and booties!! Being a wardrobe stylist and blogger, I am constantly on my feet running around from meeting to meeting, having to be on my feet for hours for a styling gig, or having to stand in all sorts of shoes while taking pictures for my Instagram. After a while one’s feet would obviously start to hurt having to be on them for sooo long. Since it is officially October now, I love being able to start pulling out my fall clothes for the cooler days in Texas, and what fall look isn’t complete without a pair of ankle booties.
Happy Humpday, friends! Today has been such a whirlwind with prepping for a commercial job I having coming up plus shooting one of my Halloween makeup looks for the blog! I’m currently sitting in my dining room finishing up this blog post in full skeleton body makeup that’s been half smeared off on the burrito I just ate. I’m like don’t touch ANYTHING!!! It’s a little ridiculous looking… If you want a sneak peek of what I currently look like, go check out my Instagram Stories (@dtkaustin). I figured I should get this post wrapped up before I douse myself in Extra Virgin Olive Oil to get this body paint off. Should be an interesting process since you can’t put olive oil down the drain! Guess I’ll be getting a scrub down in the yard! 🙄
Austin ladies, clear your calendars! Starting THIS Thursday, September 28th, UK’s biggest online fashion retailer, Boohoo is coming to Austin for 3 weeks! Located at 2120 Guadalupe St. you can preview so many great Fall and festival pieces just in time for ACL! If you haven’t shopped Boohoo before, they have some amazing basics at extremely affordable price points for all body shapes and types. I have been addicted to shopping their website with all of their new, Fall goodies coming out so I am even more excited to get to try everything on in person! The pop-up shop isn’t going to be here for that long, 3 weeks I believe, so make sure you stop by and say hello!
Hello, Fall! Is anyone else overjoyed that cooler temps are get closer and closer?? That means we can start pulling our favorite blanket scarves out of storage and stock up on even more coziness in stores! Most of y’all are probably already seeing and feeling that gorgeous Fall weather but in Texas it’s still scorching! I seriously feel like I am one of those crazy people in Texas that even when it’s 90 degrees even in November, I insist on purchasing everything Fall related that never gets worn… I can’t tell you how many tubs of beanies and blanket scarves I have stocked up on that rarely see the light of day. I’ve come to the realization that I need to move somewhere cooler to satisfy my winter wardrobe purchases or I need to start donating!
Hello, fall!! I can’t believe I’m even saying that when it’s still 90+ degrees in Texas but that doesn’t stop me from incorporating fall into every aspect of my life these days! You all know what I’m talking about… September doesn’t only bring us cooler weather, it brings us everything Pumpkin Spice!! GREENIES just came out with their Pumpkin Spice Flavored Limited Edition Treats and you won’t believe the reason they came out with these. Dogs are family and stick by their owners through everything. We all smother our dogs with love, lots of annoying kisses, pictures and selfies but no matter what, they still love us back. Seriously, melts my heart because it is all so true!! Our dogs deserve the absolute best and GREENIES Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Flavored Dental Treats do just that. You know we stocked up on bags and bags of these babies for fall and winter!! Now we can even celebrate Pumpkin Spice season together.

Fall is officially here and I don’t know about y’all but I am ready to start dressing in cozy sweaters, cardigans, skinny jeans, OTK boots and booties! By now, y’all have probably seen my attempt to transition into Fall (given the TX weather) on the blog and Instagram along with other countless amounts of influencers telling you what you have to have to look chic in the cooler weather. The outfit in this blog post is definitely going to be a go-to once temps start dropping but I wanted to show y’all ahead of time because I love it so much. Mainly because my accessories are the absolute best or the fact that everything about this look is so classic and can be worn anywhere, during any time of the day and you won’t be uncomfortable. I honestly feel like this is the blogger uniform at times, which means it’s good! 😜
The first day of Fall is apparently THIS Friday and I’m a little curious as to where the cooler weather is in Austin! I’ve been patiently waiting and have felt no such temperatures!! The first day of Fall in Austin consists of shorts, a tank top and flip flops. I found it funny this morning when the local meteorologist mentioned the first day of Fall is approaching and that we’ll soon start feeling Fall temps later in the week. And by Fall temps he meant a 93 degree high instead of over 100… What a jokester… That was a moment when you start laughing which quickly turns into a cry of disappointment because you have so much cute Fall clothing already that won’t get worn for months from now. 😫 Until then I have to improvise my Fall wardrobe for you guys since so many of y’all are already feeling Fall!
Who else is ready for the weekend? Grayson finally has a free weekend so in addition to date night we’ve got an exciting couple of days planned filled with Lego building! I went to the Lego store today to pick up that insanely massive Millennium Falcon that cost a mere $800, but it SOLD OUT in seconds apparently. I mean, really? People were supposedly in line outside the store in the mall at 7am when the actual mall doesn’t even open until 9am. Talk about dedicated! I went into the store today to see if I could swoon my way into having them hold one for me when more came in and they totally rejected my ass. I ended up settling for the cutest BB-8 that we were going to build Saturday and then Grayson insisted on simply opening the box which led to us building the entire thing in an hour. SO, that means we will be back at the Lego store Saturday to buy even more Lego’s to keep us entertained! Does anyone else obsess over Lego’s as much as I do?? I’ll have to show y’all our Lego room one of these days!
