This athleisure trend post is sponsored by Zappos.

Let’s talk about one of the hottest new trends that has finally been validated by the fashion industry after years and years. Athleisure-wear. For years, everyone from college students to housewives and practically everyone who lives in Austin is well aware of athleisure-wear. And I mean WELL AWARE. What was just seemingly being lazy and not wanting to actually get dressed, its surprising this athleisure trend has really caught on. Years ago I would never be caught dead wearing work-out clothes outside of my house or the gym. I hate to even admit, I probably wear casual clothing 99% of the time now. Austin is such a casual city that you almost everywhere you go you’re inundated with women in their casual-wear.

I don’t know about y’all but one of the main things I struggle with is finding the best fitting bra or bralette that is comfortable to wear ALL day long.

{Finding the Perfect Pair of White Denim}

DTKAustin shares details on how to find the best pair of white denim. Madewell white skinny jeans from Nordstrom at an affordable price. - Finding the Perfect Pair of White Denim by popular Austin fashion blogger Dressed to Kill

I don’t know about y’all but finding the perfect pair of white denim has been a multiple years long struggle. I’m not even joking. I have NEVER owned a pair of white denim jeans in my entire life. Why? Because I have never been able to find a pair that didn’t either make me look like a fat cow (I know, how stupid of me), weren’t completely see through (you know the ones that literally show your cellulite through the pants) or a pair that didn’t have a ton of whiskering through the front making them look like they are way too small to be wearing. Anyone else have any pet peeves about white denim? Oh, the fact that if I wear anything white for longer than 5 minutes it’s going in the trash because I completely ruin it with anything and everything I come into contact with!

This way you aren’t wasting money on a handful of new tools you have to find storage for. T3 currently has 7 interchangeable attachments that are all sold separately.

DTKAustin shares her recent Splurge or Steal Column about Date Night Ideas for him and her in Austin Woman Magazine just in time for Valentine's Day! - Valentine's Date Night Outfits for Him & Her by popular Austin fashion blogger Dressed to Kill

Roses are red, violets are blue and heads will turn to look at you. Who out there is a huge fan of Valentine’s Day? Or not? I honestly can’t believe it’s already here. This time last year I was laid up in bed after having major shoulder surgery. Needless to say my Valentine’s date night was non-existent in 2017. That is definitely going to change this year! Grayson and I made reservations at one of our favorite sushi spots in Austin; Uchi. If you are ever in ATX you MUST go eat there. I’m not normally one that likes Valentine’s but I feel like it’s an excuse to clear the schedule and actually get out together while we both have some free time! How sad. 😂
