What I Wore In Austin

Hi friends! Welcome to this weeks Friday Favs in the form of what I wore in Austin. I’m going to share some more on our trip soon, but for now I thought I’d share what I wore and packed. I am unashamedly a self proclaimed “over-packer”. I’m a mood dresser, meaning I dress according to my mood. This is why I don’t think a capsule wardrobe would ever work for me. I like to have options when I travel, so I can wear what I “feel” like. This means my suitcase is almost always packed to the limit. On the way out to Austin it was 49.5 pounds, and on the return it was 50 pounds on the nose. I place my luggage on the scales and then hold my breath. HA!


Thank you Phoenix airport for the full length mirror. If you fly much, then you know they aren’t in a lot of airports. What’s a fashion blogger to do? When I’m flying there are a several criteria that have to be met. One is comfort, and the other is warmth. Airplanes are notoriously cold, even for us gals that provide our own personal heat waves. LOL I wore my Spanx faux leather leggings, a new long sleeve swing tee, and this poncho that my kids gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago. It’s Free People, and I love it just as much now as I did when I first got it.

Our first day out was our day trip to Waco. Oh what fun! I’d been dying to wear my new striped poncho from Loft and finally got the opportunity. You know how I feel about softness and this on is cozy as all get out. These booties. These booties have been some of the best money I’ve ever spent. You can walk in them a sweet forever and your feet will be fine and dandy. Katie borrowed them last year and then we ended up ordering a pair for her too. I think she wears hers as much as I do. #theyaregreat

The sun was so bright I was having to close my eyes and just open them for a split second. I already shared this striped sweater (here) and the top (here). They look like they were made to go together, and my new booties are spot on perfect with them. This day was the first time I’d taken them out for a test run, and I’m happy to report that I walked, and walked, and walked some more and they didn’t make me want to amputate my toes. #score

Sunday we spent most of the day just hanging out. It was wonderful! We went for a walk, so we were all dressed in our comfy clothes and then just left them on. I wore my wubby (which I just bought another since I wear it all winter.

Apparently I have a thing for ponchos. This is yet another new one that I wore for the first time. I had the same one last year in off white and loved it enough to buy another one. Unlike my sweet daughter, I don’t mind having multiples of something I like.


I basically wore the same outfit home on the plane as I’d worn on the flight out. I just wore a different sweater. This sweater is a cross between a sweater, a cardigan and a blanket. Perfect for just about anything. It’s on sale for 40% off, and comes in a beautiful rose color I’m smitten with.

    I am also an over-packer! Love the striped poncho from LOFT. And, I am with you – I will buy multiples of the same thing if I love it. I hope you have a great weekend!

    I always pack to much and am always trying not to. Ugh. I am loving ponchos this season! I need to get one for here in Arizona. A light one. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • November 19, 2019 / 8:13 pm

      There are so any good options out there. I know you’ll find the perfect one. XO

    How did I not expect anything less than you looking GORGS on your trip???

    I too am an over- packer and a mood dresser. I’m trying to get better at packing many things that at least coordinate with one another so I can pack a few less things but so far I’m not doing so good at that.

    I’m an over packer too because I always want to have options! Love all of your ponchos!

    Cute travel outfits! Funny about the weight of your suitcase though! I always pack more on short trips than long trips probably because we typically don’t fly for those.

    • November 19, 2019 / 8:13 pm

      Thanks Mireille! Sometimes I end up with 2 suitcases since Southwest lets you check two for free. Woohoo!!! XO

    Love your style! I’m so glad you got some nice weather so you weren’t sweating to death while you were in Tx!

      Thanks Tanya! We were so lucky with the weather! XO

      YAY! I’m in good company. Thank heavens for that 50 pound weight limit. HA!

  11. November 8, 2019 / 4:47 pm

    I loved every single one of your outfits, Friend, but I think the one for the plane ride home is my fav! Miss you so much! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    • November 19, 2019 / 8:13 pm

      Aw, thanks Laura!!! We are a pretty darn cute group…as everyone kept telling us. HA! Miss you so much too!!!

    Wow, I am already tired of the jean frayed hem look. I liked it for about a second. Though I do prefer it over the senseless ripped jean look.

  13. November 8, 2019 / 10:22 pm

    Never thought about it, but I bet I am a mood dresser, too. I hang clothes out to wear the next day and feel very excited about whatever I have selected that night. Then wake up in the morning and want to wear something entirely different!! Ha! I see a lot of gals who pack on a color scheme but I can’t do that either. The place I travel most is to Kentucky to see my mom. When I pick out clothes for my trip to see her, I try to pick lots of color and pieces I think she would like. So I crowd that weight limit a lot, too!!
    Your outfits were easy, comfortable and stylish. Love both travel outfits. I know you gals had the best time. Can’t wait to read more.

      I do the same thing, Leslie. It doesn’t really work for me to plan ahead. LOL

    You wear cardigans so well, I live in cardigans these months! Have a great weekend!

  15. November 10, 2019 / 3:10 pm

    You had so many stylish autumn outfits and I have to say I love your first travel outfit – looks so cosy and comfortable! they frayed hem jeans are a cute touch too to a classic pair of skinny jeans! 🙂

    Hope that you had a great weekend! We had our annual family photo with Santa for our Christmas cards on Saturday and then a play date in the park on Sunday 🙂

      Thank you, Mica. I was so happy to wear some of my new duds. XO

    You looked so polished and perfect your whole trip! I love your cozy ponchos and that cardigan you traveled home in! Planes can be so cold so I like a nice cozy layer!

    Love all the looks. Like you I like to be comfortable and stylish on an airplane. And yes to it is sometimes too cold, even for me and my internal heater. Have a great week.


    • November 19, 2019 / 8:07 pm

      Thanks Pam. Yes! I’m already trying to figure out what to wear in Dec when we travel. XO

    I loved everything you wore Lisa. You look cute, cozy and stylish no matter what you wore! I especially love the plaid with the block cardigan – CUTE!

  19. November 13, 2019 / 9:11 am

    Great outfits Lisa! I love the multicolored cardi as you can wear so many colors with it. Great with those boots! So snazzy for the plane! Love the mix of neutrals with those cute leopard flats!
    Looked like you all had a great time!
