{Splendid Black Summer Romper}

DTKAustin shares her favorite detailed romper and shoes from Splendid plus a gorgeous black leather bag from Rebecca Minkoff. Click for more information and photos.

I was never one for rompers or jumpsuits until recently. That is, if they fit me correctly. You all probably remember my long torso issue I seem to always complain about in my posts. 😜 Good news, if you’re in the market for a new summer romper! I recently found a budget friendly option that I have been living in like every single day! No joke though… If am headed out to run errands for a couple of hours I would normally throw on some athleisure/workout wear but I am starting look the exact same everyday… Which is semi-homeless and unkept and that’s just not me! This romper has been such an easy grab and go piece that I’m going to be living in it for months and months!

{Why Every Girl Needs to Have a Tomboy Side}

DTKAustin shares her experience at the last 2017 Supercross race in Las Vegas.

Let me first start off by apologizing for how lengthy this post is going to be. There is just so much to be said and seen within the bounds of one blog post! This also isn’t the typical blog post you would normally see coming from my site and I’m really excited to give y’all an inside look into a huge part of my life! I had so much fun writing this post sharing a passion my dad and I still share to this day.

This post is for all of the female dirt bike lovers out there! 🙌🏻

First things first; reasons why every girly-girl needs to have a tomboy side. I mean, judging from my upbringing, girls that act like dudes are WAY more fun and here’s why!

Event recap from the PAWsh Puppy Fashion Show with Kelly Wynne Handbags. Steven Jalapeño and 5 other dogs participated in the Austin Pets Alive runway way show Click for more info and pictures.

If you know me, I love dogs and I love giving back however I can. When you combine those two things you know I’ll do anything I can to be involved. A few weeks ago my great friend, Kelly Wynne, invited me to be a part of the PAWsh Puppy Fashion Show they were hosting at her new store at the Domain. This show was to launch her new dog collar and leash collection, Cloud K9 that will be available for purchase in a few weeks and also to benefit Austin Pet’s Alive. Steven and I didn’t even have to think twice before we 100% agreed to be a part of the modeling fun! For those of y’all who were able to make the show last week I wanted to give everyone a recap of the doggy cuteness!

{National Swimsuit Day with Wala Swim}

Hello National Swimsuit Day! (Was anyone else aware this was a thing?? Like I need an excuse to buy more swimwear!) As the Texas summer quickly approaches I couldn’t be any less prepared with swimwear. My need to be near a cold body of water is rising and at this point I am scrambling to buy up as much swimwear as I possibly can while saving some money! Which brings me to the point of this post! One of my go-to online swim retailers, Wala Swim is currently having a major site-wide sale for 25% off your ENTIRE purchase with code KICKOFF25. They RARELY have major sales like this so seriously take advantage before prices go back up! Swimwear is not cheap so whenever there is a deal on my favorite designer brands I am on it like white on rice!

We weren’t able to shoot this look during our stay so I really wanted an excuse to wear it out again. It was too cute not to share with you guys!

{Why Zappos is my go-to for Online Shopping}

This post is sponsored by Zappos. All thoughts expressed are my own.

Has anyone else noticed that online shopping has almost completely monopolized the retail market? I mean, to the point of large retailers being forced to close their brick & mortars. With the rise of e-commerce and digital influencers promoting specific products it’s no surprise that more people are opting to shop online, from the comfort of their own home. Even I absolutely cringe at the thought of having to drive all the way to a store, look around, not try it all on, purchase it and then get home only to realize half the stuff I bought didn’t even fit! So time consuming and not something I want to waste my day doing. Time is the most important luxury in life so why waste it?

{Splurge or Steal – Nautical Sea of Style}

DTKAustin shares her splurge or steal in Austin Woman Magazine on how to recreate the nautical trend on a budget plus the expensive option if you want to splurge. Click for more details and images!

Hey, sailor! The nautical trend has been all the rage for what seems like centuries and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. It’s one of those ageless trends that tends to come back into the fashion world every few years or so. Whether it is in style or not, you can really never go wrong with wearing something nautical. I feel like it is such a classic look that is going to turn heads any season; Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter and it’s one of the easiest to achieve.

{The Best Place to Buy Affordable Swimwear}

DTKAustin is sharing her pool day essentials and favorite affordable little black bikinis! Click for more pool day pics and outfit details.

Pool weather is already upon most of us… Are you prepared?? To be completely honest, I have been so scared to get into a bathing suit that I have totally avoided even looking at them. It’s been months since I have been able to exercise besides walking and doing some body weight squats, so I’ve been feeling extra blah about swimwear. I’m sure all of you ladies know that feeling… haven’t had the time to get in bikini shape since Thanksgiving and Christmas… Still haven’t lost those extra pounds you had hoped when you made your New Year’s resolutions. It’s a vicious cycle and I honestly don’t feel like it gets any easier as we get older… It’s been tough to want to invest in swimwear at all this year!

{Best Types of Rompers for a Long Torso}

DTKAustin is sharing one of her go-to outfits for a gorgeous summer day by the pool in Texas! This romper works perfectly as a bathing suit coverup or a cute outfit on its own. Click for more details and photos.

It’s officially romper season and if you ask me, they are going to be the IT piece of summer. I feel like I’ve seen more jumpsuits, playsuits, rompers, etc. this year than any other year and man, are they cute! Most of y’all know of my romper struggles and how hard it is to find one that actually fits my long torso. No one wants to see a camel toe 24/7. 😳 On a more serious note, I would most likely, wear a romper every single day if I could. There’s no easier outfit than a romper or a maxi dress! Just throw it on and go, until you have to go to the bathroom and then you’ll definitely hate the decision to wear a romper all day long!
