That moment you realize you started to write this post May 1 and it’s already the last day of the month.

Hello, summer! Even though it’s technically still Spring for a few more weeks. 🤨 It is officially hot in Austin, TX which means it’s time to wear the most minimal yet breezy clothing.

{Affordable Summer Tops That Won’t Break the Bank}

DTKAustin shares where to get the best white tops for summer from Chicwish that wont break the bank along with her frayed straw hat on sale. - {Affordable Summer Tops That Won't Break the Bank} featured by popular Austin fashion blogger, Dressed to Kill

I don’t know about y’all but I cringe at the thought of spending a lot of money on clothes; especially summer tops. If I’m going to be spending any money on fashion related items I’d rather invest in a nice handbag, shoes or jewelry that will most likely be lasting me a lot longer than said clothing. Or just save my money in general for a fun vacation! But then what cute clothes do you wear on that vacation?? Long story short, it’s my job to find you affordable yet quality clothing that still looks super cute. 😜

{Best Staycation Near Austin – Lakeway Resort & Spa}

DTKAustin shares where the best vacation and staycation spot near Austin is; the Lakeway Resort & Spa.

As many of you know Grayson and I recently moved out to Lakeway. This was after we had already planned to stay at the Lakeway Resort & Spa so it seemed a bit odd that we would be going on a “vacation” that was only 3 miles away. Man, was I pleasantly surprised. Even though I was only 3 miles from home, I felt like I was in a completely different state. Talk about the perfect staycation!

{12 Must Have Neutral One Piece Swimsuits for Summer}

DTKAustin shares her 12 must have one piece bathing suits for summer from Nordstrom.

I used to cringe at the thought of wearing one piece swimsuits when I was younger. One pieces always reminded me of your typical mom suit! Those types of suits that I would never be caught dead in. You know the ones! Shockingly enough, this is the first year that I have EVER owned a one piece swimsuit. I’m so obsessed I literally can’t stop buying them. They have definitely come a long way since I was younger. Y’all know those awful suits I’m talking about, right?? I don’t know what has sparked my latest obsession with cute one pieces. Maybe it’s the fact that I am getting older and don’t feel as confident in a bikini like I used to. Or maybe its the fact that they are so cute and stylish now!  Continue Reading

{Must Have Striped Pants for Spring/Summer + GIVEAWAY} featured by popular Austin fashion blogger, Dressed to Kill

What a week! I have been so bad about keeping up with Instagram and the blog lately with all of this house stuff going on. For those of you that didn’t see the tiny snippet of an Instagram Story I did; we’re moving! I put my house on the market and it literally sold within a few hours. The buyers wanted a 7-10 day close which meant we had to get out of the house ASAP! Needless to say, I have been a little preoccupied with attempting to keep up with work in addition to moving somewhere! There are so many exciting things to come and I can’t wait to share all of the fun details with y’all! We are headed to a much needed stay-cation this weekend so I wanted to share one of my favorite summer looks with y’all; wide leg striped pants.
