Katie Austin returned to both the SI Swimsuit Issue and Miami Swim Week for her third year, and the health coach documented her brief trip to Florida for the latter’s runway show on July 7.

The 29-year-old influencer’s Instagram clip began with her getting out of bed at 4:30 a.m. in order to get to the airport by 6 a.m. After landing in Miami, Austin applied makeup in a car just before noon, when she attended her runway fitting with the SI Swimsuit team at the W South Beach. She showed off a few options for the camera, including a white bikini and a purple two-piece.

Throughout the afternoon, Austin enjoyed poolside brand activations at the SI Swimsuit Barbie Dreamhouse before it was time to get ready for the main event. After a runway walkthrough and glam, the reigning co-Rookie of the Year hit the red carpet in a sparkly blue mini dress at 9 p.m. She then strutted the catwalk in a strappy, wrap-tie white number and a criss-crossed dark purple bikini. Austin documented the after-party into the night, and her video concluded with a trip back to the airport at 4:30 a.m. 

“first time in my life I’ve stayed up for 36 hours without even a nap hahah but it was ALL WORTH IT💞,” she quipped in her caption.

“Girllll idk how you do it!!!” one person applauded. “Super woman!!!!”

“You are amazing,” someone else added. “I would have collapsed from exhaustion lol. You look amazing!”
