Street Style: Neiman Marcus/ Austin Tidbits party

I used to say that Whole Foods in downtown Austin was my favorite place to people watch and gain style inspiration, but I may have to change my mind. The Domain is swarming with style. After the Neiman Marcus/ Austin Tidbits party, I was able to grab a few photos of some of the girls who were inside.

Meet local business owner, Stephene. My friend Laura audibly oohed over her tank top and pants while we were in line for the goody bags. I love the casual elegance of this whole thing:

top: Old Navy, pants: Anthropologie, heels: Aldo, bag: Hype (NYC), bracelet: Austin City Wide Garage Sale, earrings: Banana Republic.
This is my friend Melissa (or "Emmy" as she sometimes goes by). She's often my partner in crime as together we help head up Flash Mob Austin. Weird fact: her sister Vanessa was in an Adored Austin Street Style photo back in July. Anyway, I really like the shape and simplicity of her dress:
dress: Tommy Jeans, shoes: Payless, bracelet: Mexico gift, earrings: Claire's.

This is UT student Kaylee. She's originally from Oklahoma (I think her mom even said "Go Sooners!"). I love that Kaylee is a student who doesn't just wear running shorts and a t-shirt and flip flops. I swear, every time I see UT students, a "going to the gym" look is the standard uniform. Her jeans are awesome! Jessica from WhatiWore just blogged about this color for the fall, and Kaylee made it look casual but incredibly fresh:
shirt: Urban Outfitters, jeans: Forever 21, boots: Steve Madden.

Speaking of UT students who know how to dress, check out this fashionable bunch! Seeing them together made me miss my three college besties (hi, Jenay, Schwan, and Bee!). I absolutely adore how they mix high end items with more accessible items here, and geez, this is, collectively, the best group of flat sandals I've ever seen:
kayleigh, lillian, keely, & summer
(from L-R)
Kayleigh- dress: Urban Outfitters, sandals: Old Navy, bag: Elliott Lucca.
Lillian- top: from Spain, jeans: J Brand, shoes: Shelley (UK), bag: Cole Haan.
Keely- dress: New Mexico/ gift (thanks, mom!), sandals: Christian Louboutin.
Summer- dress: Urban Outfitters, sandals: Capri for Target, bag: UO.
