{How to Stay Timeless at Any Age}

Wardrobe Stylist DTKAustin shares how to have timeless style at any age with these tips.

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 tooย 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 tryingย too hard to be young again. This magazine article has 5 looks for any occasion that ANYONE at ANY age can pull off.

Hello National Swimsuit Day! (Was anyone else aware this was a thing?? Like I need an excuse to buy more swimwear!)

{At Home with Urban Mettle}

The holidays are right around the corner and if you’re like me, gift giving is a quite theย challenge for some of my friends and family. As I’m getting older I realize that in this house, less is more! Most of you know, I purchased a home a little over a year ago, totally gutted it and started a massive renovation. For the most part, the renovation is done but it made me realize that I want absolutely 0 clutter in this house, so when the holidays come around I tell people to save their money and give us gift cards or something we can specifically use! Or you know, a good trip always works too!
