20 Inspiring Looks to Copy from SXSW

20 Inspiring Looks to Copy from SXSW |

SXSW is a 10 day festival in Austin, Texas that celebrates film, music and tech—and everything in between including fashion, health, food, social impact and design. Every March the streets of Austin are even more flooded with stylish, innovative and forward-thinking people looking for inspiration or looking to inspire others. We visited the capital of tacos Texas to feast on tacos, listen to great music and go gaga over the latest fashion and street styles. We’re hoping our favorites inspire you to find a few new looks of your own. Austin, we’ll hopefully be seeing you again soon! #moretacosplease

Fact: the only times I go to SXSW is when I, or my beau have films premiering. Oh. I guess I should give you another fact: I am an actress. ??‍♀️? hi! Ok. Now ya know. •This weekend we snuck into the festival festivities with our invites to the Bloodfest premiere party at Speakeasy. We had a blast! It’s our tradition to sneak out of wrap/premiere parties and go grab a hot dog at @hotdogscoldbeer & that’s exactly what we did ??. • I was LIVING in this jumpsuit. Less than $70 from Nordstrom and definitely a new STAPLE for spring/summer. Seriously. It’s structured but stretchy (hiiii fellow Big booty girls!) and the stripes on this one don’t make ya look “fat.” I hate that word ? •The only ounce of Jewelry I had one were these big bold earrings – and cueeee the compliments! I love bold earrings with a bare neck. I’ll rock it for as long as I can! •another Spring/ Summer staple: this BAG FROM TOP SHOP! So cute!!!! I’m obsessed. The detailing and colors on this baby is ? Go to the link in my bio for details on this look and where to buy! ? #liketkit
