Who else is overjoyed that warmer weather is quickly approaching? Temps have already hit 80 in Austin which means it’s time to break out my spring and summer dresses! This is always one of my favorite times of the year. It is when retailers start debuting their new Spring designs that just gets you right in the mood for wearing less clothing! Everyone is so eager for any sign of warmth, especially in Texas. I should say we’re eager until May – August rolls around and then we are hoping for winter weather again. There is just something about that beautiful Spring air that makes me so happy!
Styling your hair has seriously never been so much fun until now! I recently came across T3’s Convertible curling wand with interchangeable attachments and HAD to try it out. It’s always the worst feeling when you’re interested in different curling irons or wands but you have to buy an entirely new product. T3 has created a Convertible Base that allows you to add on different attachments to create a new styling tool each time. Talk about the best bang for your buck! 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.
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. 😂
Even though Galentine’s Day has only been celebrated for the last few years, it is becoming increasingly popular among besties around the world. It makes me so happy someone came up with the term Galentine’s… I think it is so appropriate and something all of us girls need from time to time! I’m sure most people reading this post already understand the term Galentine’s and if not, you can most likely figure out what it is. For those who are still a little unsure, let me clarify that for you. According to Urban Dictionary, Galentine’s is February 13th, the other half of valentine’s day, when you celebrate your love for your lady friends!
Valentine’s Day is only 2 weeks away and to say I am slacking is an understatement. I was looking at last year’s Valentine’s Day outfit posts and I was killing it with the cutesy, lovey dovey content, or lack thereof actually! My last Valentine’s post was giving you the 10 reasons I don’t like this “holiday”. 😂 I was determined to get at least ONE Valentines Day outfit post out for you guys and I found the perfect heart sleeve sweater to share!
Who else is jonesing for some warm weather? Austin is finally in the upper 60s and I am so excited to start layering with some of my new Spring pieces. I don’t know about y’all but as I soon as I get the slightest glimpse of warmer weather I am stocking up on cutoff shorts and tank tops! Thankfully in Texas summer should be right around the corner! In the meantime, I wanted to share some of my must have wardrobe staples to get you transitioning into Spring and Summer.
For someone that rarely shops for themselves (I know, shocking) it’s extremely important for me to find staple pieces that will get me through season after season. Moto jackets have to be one of my favorite trends. For as long as I can remember they have been a relevant staple in the fashion world and I don’t see them going anywhere anytime soon.
I bet you thought this was going to be a relationship post! Not quite. For as long as I can remember I have been absolutely obsessed with stars. Don’t ask me why because I definitely wouldn’t be able to give you a reason. There was a time during my childhood that I would research the planets and stars. Obviously, nothing ever came of that. Maybe I have a secret aspiration to be an astronomer! Currently, laughing inside a little bit. If you’ve been following me for a while you have probably noticed my affinity for the stars and the moon. I mean, I even have star tattoos on my wrist and foot! Maybe there was something in a past life that draws me to the universe or maybe it’s just figuring out what my ascendant sign is.
Happy New Year, friends! Is everyone having a great start to 2018? Grayson and I made the decision to start eating healthier for the new year. We’ve made it through 8 days of cooking healthier meals and if you know us, we DON’T cook! We are those people that go out to eat almost every single meal or grab unhealthy, fast food for convenience. Busy schedules are absolutely no excuse for leading a healthier life. The meals we are preparing take 10 minutes MAX unless you add protein and then you’re adding an extra 10-15 minutes! Not bad for a healthy eating. I have been posting some of my meals on my Instagram Stories (@dtkaustin) so keep an eye out.
When it rains it pours! Anyone else ever have photos scheduled and then it starts pouring? That was my day. I got all ready to shoot for the blog, planned out a couple of looks, packed the car up and got to the location and BAM. It starts raining! Either way, we got some fun shots of this awesome trench coat dress! Do y’all have a favorite black trench coat? Have you ever thought about wearing it as a dress? Now, don’t go getting those thoughts of people wearing trench coats around with nothing on underneath them! I know this trench coat dress is a trend that doesn’t appeal to most people but it has become one of my go-to looks lately. The classy way. 😂
