Today I’m back with another post in the “An Outfit Inspired by…” series I began in June. I’m not really sure if I plan on doing this every month or not, let me know what y’all think! In case you need a refresher, in these posts I pick someone I view as a style icon that I think you might have already heard of, provide a little background on the person and their signature style along with some pictures of them, then I share an outfit I’ve put together inspired by this person! If you missed my “An Outfit Inspired by Danielle Carolan” post I published last month, you can read it now here. In today’s installment, I’m sharing a look inspired by Kate, the Texan blogger behind Lonestar Southern.
Kate is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin who currently lives in Dallas, Texas. She’s well known for her fashion blog, Lonstar Southern, but also has a large following on her Instagram (linked here) and YouTube channel (linked here). Kate’s style, as she describes it herself in her “Meet Kate” page, is “classic, colorful fashion that embodies a strong southern influence and a sprinkling of trends.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. Kate has made it clear to her followers that she loves a good sale, big ruffles, statement earrings, classic details, traveling, and a nice pair of wedges. Her adorable southern accent can be heard in her YouTube videos and daily Instagram stories and she honestly seems like the sweetest person ever.

When I tried my hand at channeling my inner Lonestar Southern, the first thing I knew I had to somehow add to the outfit was a ruffle. I had this classic navy off the shoulder top from Banana Republic in my closet already and I thought it would be perfect for this look. I paired it with white jeans, as Kate wears white jeans constantly. Kate is often seen in wedges, so I pulled out my TOMS wedges because they’re the closest thing I have to Kate’s beloved platform wedges. She also adores statement earrings, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to style these gorgeous turquoise beaded tassel earrings from St. Armand’s Designs that look oh so similar to one of her pairs from Lisi Lerch. Kate doesn’t appear to be incredibly fond of necklaces, so I left my neck bare. She doesn’t wear a lot of bracelets either, usually just simple cuffs stacked with her watch, so I followed her lead by stacking my MantraBand and a cute old cuff from Stella & Dot around my Kate Spade watch. Enjoy!
