{Forever 21}

You can imagine my excitement when Forever 21 reached out to me and wanted to collaborate! I don’t think I could have said yes any quicker! If you’re not familiar yet, Forever 21 is launching a new Instagram based shopping experience called Shop Forever 21 Now. They picked about 20 influencers to launch this new experience in November and I was beyond happy to be one of the chosen few!

For my first outfit selection I wanted to go with something that everyone could get wear of in the summer and winter months! This super comfy short sleeve dress is extremely affordable at just under $23. Throw on a cardigan, leather jacket or coat and some OTK boots and you are good to go!

Cardigan – Forever 21 // Dress – Forever 21

Boots – Gucci (Similar HERE) // Hat – Topshop

Skull Necklace – Roberto Coin


{Balloons + Bloggers}

I always have an absolute blast shooting with Balloon Bar, so when they asked me and Hilary to shoot again I couldn’t pass up the offer! Who doesn’t love to get all fancy and dressed up with their bestie to take some fun pics with MASSIVE colorful balloons?! We had so much fun and it was even more hilarious because my professional paintball player fiancé was our pro photog and I have to say, the shots came out pretty badass!

P.S. The last pic is the BEST!

{Stingray}

It’a always a pleasure when I get to work with GM! This past collaboration was absolutely amazing! Not only did we get a Corvette Stingray, we got to sport it around for an entire week! As most of you know, I’ll never turn down the opportunity to test out a fun sports car. I used to be the biggest sports car fanatic and had some amazing cars in my 20s but sadly sold my last one a little over a year ago. I miss driving a manual every single day, but literally was putting 40k+ miles on my cars every year traveling for wardrobe styling. So, I vouched for selling the luxury car and paying cash for an SUV! Total mom car! 🙂 You can guess how happy I was when GM offered me such a sweet ride! Definitely jumped at that idea and had an absolute blast!! If you are in the market for an awesome sports car, you should check out the new Corvette! Pretty dang snazzy!

Even Mr. Steven Jalapeño looked like a total stud too! (Pics below!)

{Black + White}

Who doesn’t love a great cardi for Fall?? Even though it is still quite warm in Texas, this cardigan is the perfect weight and the perfect price! Under $45?? Yes, PLEASE!!

And these gorgeous booties are out of this world! Not only are they perfect for Fall, they are extremely comfortable with a pop of fringe! Black leather, chunky heel, fringe, comfy; what more could you ask for?!

Another helpful winter weather tip; don’t forget to layer! With this crazy Texas weather, we don’t get a true Fall until way later in the year.  I have a very light weight 3/4 sleeve top on with a knit cardigan over that I can easily take off when it gets warmer during the day. Jeans and booties are the perfect combination for cooler mornings and warmer afternoons. Tall boots get extremely constricting and warm when the day heats up. Cool and casual, FTW!

{The Trendlee Twist}

I wanted to take some time out of my usual outfit posts to talk about 2 of my newly found, favorite things that are perfect for Holiday gifting!

First off, let’s talk about Trendlee. Have y’all heard of them before?? If not, listen up! Trendlee is the premier destination for pre-owned luxury handbags online. They curate and specialize in luxury brands such as Hermes, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Celine. All of the pieces have been previously owned, but honestly all have seemed brand new to me!

I scored this GORGEOUS Givenchy handbag for a fraction of the retail price. Who doesn’t love discounts on amazing designer bags?? I try to never actually pay full retail price on handbags. Now I do make exceptions, but if I can find a great deal on a gently used designer bag, I’ll take it. Always search designer retail shops because you can find some awesome steals.  

If you shop with code DTKAUSTIN, Trendlee will offer 5% off on anything on their site!! 

NOW, on to the next best thing… this AMAZING emoji jewelry by The Twist. Why The Twist?? Because it’s fine jewelry with a twist!! Haven’t heard of them either?? Their jewelry is a MUST HAVE and would make the perfect gift for that special someone! Who doesn’t like diamonds and emojis?! 🙂

Not only are these the cutest jewelry pieces I have seen in a long time, they are made with precious metals and stones as well. They make a bold yet classic statement and will literally go with anything and everything!

To purchase, check The Twist out at Cazabrand! At Cazabrand you will find the oomph factor, the discussion piece everyone wants to know about! They are home of talented Middle Eastern designers, showcasing their creativity, and their modern twist to traditional design. You can tell how meticulous these designers are and it definitely comes across in each and every design.
