Happy Memorial Day, Everyone! Let’s not forget the real reason why we have this glorious three day weekend. We are the land of the free because of the BRAVE. Thank you to all of veterans and current armed forces who have fought and continue to fight for our every day freedoms!
Ryan and I are headed off to Austin, Texas tomorrow and I’m pretty excited about it. I’ve been to other parts of the great Lone Star State before but never Austin. I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about the city so I’m looking forward to it. I’m also looking forward to going to Waco to live out all my “Fixer Upper” dreams. Where are all my Chip and Jo fans at?
I love knowing what other people pack when they visit a new place so I thought it would be fun to share what I’m packing with y’all. I swear I’m probably going to drive Ryan batty with the amount of times I’m going to say “y’all” this week while we’re in Texas. It will probably start with this post, sorry, I’m not sorry, babe!
Obviously I’m going to need to refresh my Chip and Jo knowledge by re-reading their book on the airplane along with catching up on the latest copy of Magnolia Journal. I must be honest, my cowboy boots are in the pictures but they aren’t coming with me. It’s way too hot for me to have my feet shoved in a sweaty leather boot. Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll stick to my cute new Steve Madden Sandals that I talked about in this post here. I love myself a good tote bag and this “Hey, Y’all” one seemed perfect for Texas.
Embarrassing side note….I totally just realized from this tote that I’ve been spelling “y’all” wrong every time I’ve typed it out. E M B A R R A S S I N G ! !
This little straw clutch with pom poms is so fun and seems like it will fit in well with Austins electric vibe. I pretty much wear some form of Kendra Scott jewelry everyday BUT, I definitely had to make sure I broke out the turquoise KS for Austin. After all, that is where Kendra got her big break, a trip to the OG store is a must.
I recently just got some super cute off the shoulder tops from Old Navy and ripped up denim shorts that I’ve been dying to wear. Heat and humidity sound like the perfect time to break them out.

If y’all have been to Austin I’d love to hear your recommendations on where to go, what to see, drink, and eat. Send em’ my way!
