The off shoulder trend is literally everyyyyywhere this summer! There are so many cute off shoulder styles, and I basically need them all! This striped off shoulder top is so fun, and I love the bell sleeves! Plus, vertical stripes are always super flattering! I am wearing an XS, but probably could’ve gone with a small – it runs a little snug in the shoulders! It’s also on sale for $20 right now, so definitely grab it! Such a steal!

We finally are getting everything moved into our new place, and it is such a disaster zone! We are waiting on so much furniture to come in still, so it’s just one big waiting game at this point until we can resume normal life. I’ll be sure to post photos on Instagram and do a home tour on the blog as soon as it’s all done! I’m really excited about the finished product – especially my office space! Continue Reading

Off Shoulder Ruffle Dress and Leopard Clutch - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram:@katlynmaupin)

Happy Monday! How perfect is this dress?! My favorite summer trend is by far off shoulder styles, and the ruffles are just the cherry on top! I also got it in red, but I wish I would’ve also snagged it in pink! I’m super bummed that this dress is sold out, but usually they restock, so I will monitor it and let y’all know if it is restocked in any color!

You’ve probably seen me wearing this stunning leopard calf hair clutch a lot recently. It’s by far my favorite clutch at the moment! Usually leopard calf hair clutches are crazy expensive, but this one is super affordable at only $95! Mimic Design has so many gorgeous handmade bags to choose from, and you even have the option to monogram them! This tassel clutch is perfect for summer, and it’s also a great dupe for the super popular Rebecca Minkoff pricey bag that’s sold out everywhere! I’m also seriously swooning over this straw tassel beach bag! It’s basically dying to come on vacation with me, haha! Continue Reading

There is so much beautiful artwork flooding the city walls that makes Austin so unique. This one is by far the most iconic and has been made into postcards time and time again. Continue Reading

#NSale: Versatile Shift Dress…

Black Shift Dress - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

I’m finally getting all of my Nordstrom purchases in that I had to order online, and I’m seriously loving everything! I keep going back to add more to my cart…it’s dangerous having the app on your phone! Haha! This black shift dress is one of my favorite purchases. It does run big, so I would size down! I’m wearing an XS for reference. I bought this dress in burgundy and lilac floral print also! It’s one of those dresses that will be SO easy to transition into fall! I can’t wait to wear it with these tan suede OTK boots I purchased from the sale. I got these boots in black also, and it’s definitely in my top 3 favorite things I snagged in the sale! I previously had an issue with my suede boots stretching out in the thigh as I wore them, so they weren’t as flattering as when I first got them. These boots lace up in the back though, so that won’t ever be an issue! I was also super excited they were under $100, because OTK boots can definitely get up there in price. Boot weather is so short in Texas, so buying crazy expensive boots is just a hard pill to swallow for me!

I also wanted to share this gorgeous turquoise magnesite necklace I recently purchased! It’s similar to this one I’ve worn constantly lately, but it’s half the price! I know a lot of you were deterred by Continue Reading
