My Annual Texas Trip Featuring Styling Tips from KOKOON

Every July, my sister and I take an annual trip to Austin, Texas to visit our Texas pals. While there, we all get together and float the Guadalupe River with a big cooler of refreshments. It's about as close to heaven as it gets. We also visit the city of Gruene, which is home to the oldest dance hall in all of Texas. We always try to get there in time for Gospel Brunch, which features biscuits and grave and other amazing Texan food.

We also make a trip out to downtown Austin scene for dancing and drinks. It's about the only place I know of where you can order a flaming Dr. Pepper... which they actually light on fire! Yum! We also visit New Braunfels and catch a concert at the WhiteWater Amphitheater, a beautiful concert venue set right on the Guadalupe river. 

It's a trip I look forward to every year and it's been a long-standing tradition for all of our Texas pals and my sister and I! This trip is also about the only time that I get to pull out my cowboy boots and put together some awesome country outfits. Taking a cue from my sponsor, KOKOON, I think the below outfit is Texas perfection! Casual and not too overly done.    

Have you all heard of KOKOON before? It's a fabulous, modern pop-up boutique, which brings their clothing line to women via private appointments and in-home trunk shows. Proudly designed in the USA, KOKOON features soft knits, vibrant prints and limited edition designs. They also feature an online store which you can shop by clicking HERE

And because you know how I love to share women's success in business... KOKOON's founder and designer, Laine Sou Weinberg, started the company in 1987 with one sewing machine in her basement studio. The company now has many years of successful retail and catalog relationships including Nordstrom and Fred Segal = amazing!
