From my early childhood until the end of high school I was an avid soccer player and absolutely loved being healthy and fit. When I started college, fitness was the last thing on my mind with being a full-time architecture student with no life or any time to go workout. I would ALWAYS tell myself to go work out, start eating healthier, get a routine going, but nothing motivated me. This was literally me until this year! Turning 30 made me a little more motivated to get my ass into shape!
Happy Weekend everyone! Who else is ready for some cooler temps?? Saying I am ready is an understatement… I’ve already found myself starting to buy more and more sweaters, scarves and OTK boots lately and its still over 100 degrees here without a remote chance of cooling down soon. That calls for a colder weather vacation, right?! I have tried to be conscious of buying things that I can easily transition into Fall or wear indoors without getting too hot here. One of my latest finds is this chic, navy shirt dress by David Lerner. (It comes in white too!)
Yes, yes… I know, NO MORE NSALE! BUT it’s the last TWO days and I wanted to give all of y’all a super easy shopping guide for the items that are actually left in stock in multiple sizes. I mean, who wants to waste their time going through the entire site only to find a few things that aren’t even in stock in their size?? Not me!!
Jeans have to be the hardest part of my wardrobe I have to shop for. Ladies, I know you agree. I mean, I despise having to shop for jeans which is why you always see me in dresses! There’s always a little excitement when I walk into a store, absolutely fall in love with a few pairs and then get heartbroken when I try them on only to have them not fit in those unflattering areas. You would think my body would be an easy one to fit but apparently these soccer thighs and long torso are deceiving, even to me! And let’s not even go into muffin tops…
Happy Monday, friends!! Grayson and I are finally back from our amazing mini-moon at the Four Seasons in Scottsdale and already back to work. Can I just tell you how hard it is coming back from such a perfect getaway!! I’m already having major withdrawals from that amazing resort!! More to come on that in another post, so stay tuned!! Since we’re back and the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is still going on, I’ve teamed up with some amazing gals to go in on a HUGE gift card giveaway that’s at the bottom of this post.
You’ve probably shared great fashion tips with your friends; now there’s a way to make money off your great advice. Let me introduce you to Split app; one of the best ways, I’ve found, to monetize link sharing, clicks and purchasing. And it’s extremely easy! So stop sharing, start Splitting! You should now never share links the old fashioned way again!
It’s here!! The moment some of y’all have been waiting for; the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now PUBLIC, which means you DON’T have to have a Nordstrom card to shop the sale, and things are getting slowly restocked!! I know, I know; you’re thinking, great, another NSALE post but I assure you that you won’t want to miss this one! Not only did I post my favorite NSALE scores on Snapchat (dtk_austin) but there is a Nordstrom gift card GIVEAWAY at the very bottom of this page!! Two lucky winners will win a $100 Nordy gift card each!
From recent events, and pretty much the entire time I’ve been blogging, I feel very inclined to write this blog post. Getting into this business I quickly learned what it took to be successful to grow your following. Being true to yourself and your style is obviously the most important but being cohesive is almost equally important. If you look at my instagram, it’s pretty easy to see that I have a dark and monochromatic theme. I am a meticulous planner so coming up with creative content takes time. To stay true to my style and to create a cohesive feed, I have to plan out my shoots and posts very carefully and this isn’t always an easy task.
Happy Monday, friends!! I’m sure most of y’all are totally sick of hearing about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so I figured I would give all of y’all a short break today and post about one of my new summer favorites! Say hello to the cutest, little black summer dress from Ella Moss. You know I can’t get enough LBDs!!
The time has come for the BEST sale of the year; the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! This is, by far, one of the most anticipated sales of the year. Not only is it just a sale… It is showcasing all, brand new, Fall goodies that cost a fraction of the retail price! There is no other store that does it like Nordstrom, so get your pocketbooks ready to do some shopping!!
