Back to the land of big skies, boots and beer gardens! I’m off to Austin.
I spent time thinking in my cab this morning that I’ve probably been on a plane to Texas over 200 times. You would think my consistency would have my packing down to a science.
From the flowy femme boot culture to the slight NYC edge permissible on Sixth Street – a few dresses, wedges and leather pants should do the trick. Right? Well, not so secret confession, I’m a terrible packer. Even though I’m fluent in Texas style and packing only a weekender, those justifications did nothing for me. It still took me two hours… shameful!
Austin style is a mix of Southern leathers and saddle browns with fun and colorful and femme silhouettes. Aka. bring on the dresses! I love this Rebecca Minkoff off-the shoulder number. Mix that with matching saddle brown shoes, like these from Steve Madden and (my new!) Michael Kors crossbody – and I say where’s the beeritas a queso.
THE PACKING LIST: AUSTIN, TX
SHOP THE LIST:
Austin is also one of the most active cities. From hiking and biking around Lady Bird Lake to taking a dip in Barton Springs pool athleisure wear is a must. I’ve also found the best and lightest walking kicks to match – these Nike Free Flyknit sneakers. #fresh! Austin here we come!
