I am a Dallas girl, no doubt about it. Just check out my big blonde hair, even bigger shoe closet, and bubbly attitude . Even my senior prom was at Southfork Ranch (where they filmed Dallas).
But I spent a significant part of my life as an Austinite. I attended the first Austin City Limits concert, drank lots of vodka tonics on Sixth St, and graduated with a bachelor of science in biology at the amazing University of Texas. I adore the city of Austin! (except for the awful Austin woman, who looked homeless, and stole missy's blackberry at Kinkos......not cool)
In addition to the amazing outdoor venues--Lady Bird Lake, Lake Austin, Zilker Park, Mount Bonnell, Lake Travis-- Austin has some of the best restaurants, great boutiques and super funky shops.
One of my all time favorite boutiques is called Peyton's Place located at 215 Lavaca St in downtown Austin. Peyton's Place carries cute summer staples like lightweight dresses, tops and accessories. I bought a gray handbag that has a long gold chain that I adore! They also carry fun sandals and shoes that include Toms (which supports a worthy cause!). I have some pink and navy Toms that look awesome with rolled up skinny jeans and a white tee. Ohhhh the best part, Peyton's Place won't cost you a zillion dollars either. Ask for miss Claire....she is my supermodel best friend and would love to help you with whatever fashion tips you need (she worked for Zac Posen, designer god, in NYC!)
Did I mention their amazing jewelry selection.....................
