Next Stop: Austin, Texas (a.k.a. The Capital of Cool)

Beyond rocking the Summer’s latest trends and celebrating the things we cherish most about the USA, we love American Icons because we get the chance to explore a few of the country’s hippest locations, too. For our next stop, we went down South to the Lone Star State and, as a native Texan, I’m proud to talk about just how much fun we had. When the cameras weren’t flashing, we took some time to enjoy all that the city of Austin has to offer, and it’s pretty clear why they call it the Capital of Cool.




There’s no way you can visit Austin without jamming out to great tunes — hello, it’s the live music capital of the world! Known for a diversity of genres, be it swingin’ jazz from legends like trumpeter Jeff Lofton or the twangy country hits that inspired our looks for the day, there’s something special waiting for every music fan.

Between fab turquoise accents, fringed booties and geometric patterns, we couldn’t help but fall in love with the Southwestern vibe around town. Thankfully, we had plenty of extra room in our bags for a few stylish souvenirs.

Speaking of style, the weather gave us the perfect excuse to show a little skin. If we weren’t in a Summer frame of mind before, our tanks, crop tops and shorts certainly did the trick. You see? There’s a plus side to the heat, too!

Last, but absolutely not least, we just had to sink our teeth into some authentic barbecue — trust me, you won’t find better anywhere else.  As the sun began to set, we added a few lightweight layers and ended the day with a tasty ice cream cone from Amy’s before hitting the ol’ dusty road.
