Outfit of the Day: What We Wore in Austin.

Hi! I am finally able to dig out and start posting again. In an unusual move, I actually remembered to take pictures of nearly everything we wore on our trip to Austin, though, fair warning, a lot of it is from our Run The Runway memberships. We so fancy! 


First, let's talk about this dress. It's by Veronica Beard and it's the PRETTIEST DRESS ON EARTH. We both rented it and love it and it's completely sold out, which is heartbreaking. Ugh. Marianne bag is an adorable Clare V Midi Sac which I pretty much covet. This Madewell bag (and this one too) is similar enough that it might scratch that itch? Maybe?


Yeah, my Minkoff bag (similar here) was not the right thing for this outfit but whatever. My top is the Rails Viera shirt and it's much prettier in real life, I swear! It has a little metallic thread of silver in it which I love. I'm wearing it with my usual dirtbag Joe's jeans cut offs and white Birkenstocks


Y'all. This dress. Everywhere we went, people freaked out over it. It is THE CUTEST RIGHT. Sadly, it's from Lou & Grey from a few years ago so pretty hard to find. (There are a few on Poshmark!) But, check out Lou & Grey dresses in general. So pretty! This one is floaty goodness. 


We went shopping and hit up the Marine Layer store, which I've never been to. The t-shirts all seemed amazing and run really small, which is rude. I did buy a pretty, floaty sack dress though:


I'm wearing a medium and it's generously sized, but perfect when it's hot out and you want to wear something that barely touches your body. For something similar, this Splendid dress is awfully cute.


My bag is another RTR rental - a Pierre Hardy Alpha and it was adorable but so, so tiny. My obsession with finding the perfect snakeskin print bag goes on. 


Seriously, how does she do it? Marianne always looks like a lady. She's wearing a two piece set by Emily Lovelock (via RTR) and it looks fantastic on her. Her tote is Clare V (different color) and her sandals are Madewell.



I forgot to get photos of our outfits the next day but we found a mirror. I'm wearing a crazy fun rented Ulla Johnson top that I was sad to send back. Marianne is wearing an a very pretty top from The Great that I just love. She's had it for years. They make such pretty, light tops! I love this one in particular and how crazy-good is this?


We went out for dinner on our last night so I wore my Eden dress and metallic Birkenstock Gizeh sandals. My dress is sold out but how pretty is this one


Marianne wore the prettiest dress on earth, this Tanya Taylor wrap dress (via RTR). Have you ever? She is wearing the hell out of that dress. And honestly, she always looks great as should be apparent from this entry which makes me want to dress up more often. Sheesh. 

I didn't mean this blog entry to be a Rent the Runway spectacular but it really is a good way to have fun clothes on hand for a trip. If you're tempted to try it, you can get 40% off your first month if you go through my link. (I think I get an extra rental or something?) 

That's it! I posted our departure outfits and now we're back home and back to missing each other. Wah.

  2. i've never done RTR (or any of those subscription services). can you buy the pieces if you really like them? or is it strictly rental only?

    1. You can buy the pieces but for the nicer/newer items the discount is only 10% which doesn't really help for a $500 dress!

    2. Sometimes you can find stuff on Thread Up, which has a Revive by RTR category of clothes. It’s a crapshoot, but worth checking and setting up a saved search for it!

  3. OHHH NO I fell in love with Marianne's Lou & Grey dress and just spent 30min scouring the internet to buy one in my size and cannot find one. I checked Poshmark, EBay, and Depop, anybody else got any leads? I'm looking for a medium. I am not good at wanting and not having lolol

  4. My 18 year old son loves Marine Layer. I think their stuff has kind of a vintage '70s vibe, which cracks me up, because I, myself, am vintage '70s, and he doesn't think I'm cool at all! lol
