Valentine’s Day Dress…

Red Lace Dress - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

I can’t believe Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! With all of the traveling I did this month, it doesn’t even feel like January happened! I bought this dress originally for the Christmas time, but it would also make the perfect Valentine’s Day dress! It’s so flattering, too! It runs big in my opinion. I am wearing a size XS for reference (typically a 0/2), but I probably could’ve even gone smaller if it was an available! While I love a red lace dress for Valentine’s Day, a little black lace dress or white lace dress is always also a great option. Pairing it with a red heel adds the perfect pop of color and still makes the outfit feel very “Valentine’s Day.”

What are y’all planning on doing for Valentine’s?!

I’ve had several requests for cute swimsuit options lately, and after coming back from the caribbean, I’m all about it! We had such a blast on the cruise! I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA from my blog and Instagram. I was expecting to be able to post with the wifi on the boat, but the wifi was literally miserable. Then we got stranded at sea an extra two days after we were supposed to get off the boat due to weather, so I was panicking not having any posts for 10 days! I’ve never had my patience tested so much in my life! Haha! I will never complain about my internet at home being slow EVER again! It was nice getting a bit of a social media break, though! It’s good to disconnect sometimes and just live in the present with your loved ones.

Dylan and I had the absolute best time ever! You probably saw we had a little too good of a time in Continue Reading

Happy New Year + Life Update!

Backless Beaded Prom/Formal Dress - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram:@katlynmaupin)

Happy New Year babes! I know it’s the 4th, but I’ve been so MIA! Things got so crazy with the holidays! I wanted to share this stunning Alyce Paris dress before I left town again! So many of you asked about it when I posted it on Instagram a week ago! It’s perfect for any formal event!

You probably saw I spent the last couple of days of 2016 wedding dress shopping with my mama and found the perfect dress! It couldn’t be any more beautiful – although I even surprised myself with the dress I chose! I definitely didn’t imagine myself in the dress I chose when I initially started shopping, but I fell so in love with it when I put it on! I can’t wait to wear it and for y’all to see the photos! It’s amazing!

My best friend flew into town from Kentucky for NYE, so that was such a blast! I’m already ready for her to come back! Good girlfriends are always so hard to find, and she’s the best ever! We had too many laughs this past weekend. I’m pretty sure Dylan was a little overwhelmed, because it was like having two of me in the house all weekend! Haha!

I’m spending today starting to pack for our cruise…yay! Dylan and I are heading on a 7 day cruise together, and we are beyond excited! He rarely gets any time off, so we always are craving quality time! We are making stops in Belize, Cozumel, and Jamaica! I think I am most excited about swimming with dolphins. I have had this weird obsession with dolphins every since I was little…I’ll probably honestly cry, because I’ll be so happy! Lol!

Leopard Calf Hair Crossbody…

Fall and Winter Outfit - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

When it comes to neutrals, leopard is by far my favorite! And yes, leopard is definitely a neutral! You can add a pop of leopard to an otherwise boring outfit, and it totally changes the game! I recently got this leopard calf hair bag in the mail from Capolavori…talk about major heart eyes! You can wear it as a tote or add the strap for a cross body, but I definitely opt for the cross body style! Most of my cross body bags can hardly fit a wallet, and let’s be honest…girls need to carry more than just a wallet in a bag! I mean…I need a place to store my snacks! Haha! But really, though. I love how roomy this bag is though! It has several compartments too, so it’s not just one big black hole! I love browsing Capolavori’s website, because everything is so unique! Their products are all handmade in Italy and the best quality! They have everything from home decor to jewelry to bags! I’ve been swooning over this ornate ring since the second I saw it! So pretty!

Ps. My bag just went on sale this week and is now $70 off!  Continue Reading

V Neck Sweater…

Fall Outfit - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

Merry Christmas babes! I hope everyone has been having such a good holiday weekend with their family! We spent the morning looking at all the goodies Santa brought and enjoying the Christmas music. Bailey hasn’t stopped playing with all her new toys since 8 AM this morning! Lol! I don’t know how she still has any energy left to play! I swear, that dog has endless energy!

I shot this while in Colorado last week…I’m missing the snow to say the least! I picked up this v neck sweater right before the trip and I’m so glad I did! This Dagne Dover cross body and ALYSIA heels add the perfect pop of color! Burgundy is by far my favorite fall/winter color to wear!

Hope y’all are have a Merry Christmas! Don’t forget to enter yesterday’s giveaway if you haven’t already!
