June 2023: Fashion & Beauty Favorites



I'm always overdressed and overthinking fashion design as a creative in Austin, TX. I believe everyone has a style story – now let's add some character!

My guide for how to shop thoughtfully and curate a closet that works for you.

Mackenzie Dunn Design Fashion Stylist

In my mind’s eye, this is how I look all June long. Sitting comfortably, with sleeves on, sipping a latte. Not sitting in front of my office’s Dyson fan counting down the days till a month that ends with “-ember.” (Those months at least sound cooler.)

In reality, June in Austin, Texas is a month for survival, and these are the products that helped not only survive – but thrive… Or at least capture a full sense of delusion, (which I highly recommend as well!)

Nail Polish Heels

The shoes I’ll never shut up about. I saw Loewe’s wild shoe line come out a year ago, and I cringed. (I even made a TikTok about it!)

Here I am a year later and all the wiser. Yes, I am the proud owner of some nail polish heels, and they are, in fact, like a beacon for cool-girls. I wear these out and immediately… iykyk.

Dior Backstage Eyeshadow Palette

I saw IG’s resident MUA, Katie Jane Hughes, use this palette and I RAN to purchase it. Y’all, it is worth every penny. It’s super pigmented and the colors blend together like a dream. I even find myself using the bolder colors in the palette more than I thought I would because they wear so well.

I especially recommend these colors for my fellow blue-eyed people as it’s a nice alternative to the bronze-y colors we usually get recommended.

Maméne Silk Set

If I could live in my Maméne silk set, I would. Need something chic to wear out? Here’s my pick. Need something cozy to wear over to a friend’s? Here’s my pick.

Seriously, there’s not a more versatile set out there. The fabric is luxe without being fussy and the cut is both comfortable and flattering. Oops, here I go to buy another!

Skims Fits Everybody Crossover Bralette

This might seem like a bit of an aimless favorite, but sometimes it’s the little things that make a huge difference. I’m finding this is the piece I reach for again and again when I want to accomplish a sort of “undone summer look” under loose tops.

The little crossover detail makes it feel extra intentional. It’s enough coverage that I don’t feel like I’m flashing anyone, but enough support that I don’t feel like I’m fully footloose and fancy-free.

AGOLDE Bailey ribbed-knit tank

I have this in the army green color and have been obsessively wearing it. The narrow cut of the shoulders is extremely flattering (especially on Kibbe SNs and FNs!) It’s something a little different than an average tank, and is a must-have in my arsenal of “clothes fit to survive Texas summers.”

Expressive Forrest Charms & Ceramics

I’m very sorry to have introduced you to something so unbelievably cute. I know that these ceramic charms will now be living in your mind rent-free, and that’s valuable real estate.

Elyssia Ward is the ceramicist behind Expressive Forest, and I neurotically follow her instagram for charm drops. She’s based in Glasgow, Scotland, but her little boots are perfect for this Texas girlie. I recently bought boot charms for myself and a friend, and wow, they’re even cuter in person.

Hi, I'm Mackenzie

I'm obsessively curating style that tells my story. My focus is on small, independent brands and fashion designers.

What to Wear





It takes a heaping dose of character, ensured quality, and a dash of elegance to be considered "perfectly Dunn." These are my fashion and home finds that meet that standard.
