{Must Have Cashmere from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + Giveaway}

DTKAustin shares her must have cashmere from the NSALE Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Starting with this Vince cashmere cardigan, Steve Madden OTK Over the Knee boots and Leith body-con dress.

I don’t know about y’all but my motto when shopping is quality over quantity. This thinking goes into almost everything I buy; clothing, jewelry, handbags, etc. I’m not one that loves to shop (shocking, I know) so I need my clothing to last season after season. That is why I gravitate to cashmere, besides the fact that it doesn’t irritate my skin like wool. The only downside is the fact that cashmere is on the pricier side so what better time to buy than during the best sale of the year! I personally wait until the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale rolls around to stock up on my cashmere sweater and cardigans so I get more bang for my buck. I mean, who doesn’t want more cozy goodness in their lives?!

{Pre-Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Women’s Catalog Must Haves + Giveaway}

DTKAustin shares her 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale NSALE Catalog Must Haves.

The time has almost come. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NSALE) is a mere few days away. Are you ready?? As much as I try and prepare for this Nordstrom Anniversary sale it is always such a cluster. Each year is so different with how Nordstrom shares the full sale with stylists or influencers. Thankfully, I was able to get the full sale PDF a few days ago and go in store Saturday to check everything out in person. As a wardrobe stylist, it is nice to actually see things in person to get a sense of quality and value. Even though NSALE is such a huge sale there are plenty of things that definitely aren’t worth purchasing.

Happy Friday, friends! Does anyone have any fun plans for the weekend? I finally have a weekend to relax and hopefully do absolutely nothing! Grayson is out of town, my dad and step-mom are coming in for the day and I have NO plans. I’m actually going to try and relax which means no work; styling or blogging. It is definitely much needed plus it’s too dang hot outside to do anything. Everyone keeps raving about it being the first day of summer but I will be trapping myself inside hiding from the heat. It’s been summer in Texas for over a month already! Before I take my short break I wanted to finish up this post and talk about this beautiful white lace romper from Chicwish.

{Affordable Summer Tops That Won’t Break the Bank}

DTKAustin shares where to get the best white tops for summer from Chicwish that wont break the bank along with her frayed straw hat on sale. - {Affordable Summer Tops That Won't Break the Bank} featured by popular Austin fashion blogger, Dressed to Kill

I don’t know about y’all but I cringe at the thought of spending a lot of money on clothes; especially summer tops. If I’m going to be spending any money on fashion related items I’d rather invest in a nice handbag, shoes or jewelry that will most likely be lasting me a lot longer than said clothing. Or just save my money in general for a fun vacation! But then what cute clothes do you wear on that vacation?? Long story short, it’s my job to find you affordable yet quality clothing that still looks super cute. 😜

Hello, Monday! How was everyone’s weekend? Grayson and I had some awesome plans for the weekend to celebrate his birthday. Sadly, none of those plans actually happened! I am such an awful wife and literally got him so sick with the sinus infection I’ve been battling. Instead of resting, we ended up decluttering the house to get it put on the market this week! Not like I have any idea where we are going to go… but I am so ready for another fun renovation project. Now that I have some free time I wanted to get this Ted Baker post up! If you saw any of my Instagram Stories on Friday you saw that there is now a Ted Baker Austin store!

{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!
