I’m all about velvet, chunky sweaters, and suede this fall! Basically – a whole lot of texture! I just love fall clothing! I wanted to share some things I either recently bought or are currently sitting in my cart! My favorite leopard scarf and black hat I wore nonstop last fall is back this year, too! I wore them nonstop last year, and this year won’t be any different! OTK boots are still super on trend also…I just snagged this pair! The quality is top notch! I definitely recommend them! But these are also a great option that is more budget-friendly!


Slouchy Oversized Sweater…

I think my favorite part about fall is how comfy fall clothes are! I seriously live for all of the oversized sweaters fall brings! Something that feels like pajamas and hides the pizza I just ate all at once? Count me in! This oversized sweater is on sale for $39, and I love that it’s light enough that I won’t sweat to death! It can be worn normal or slightly off the shoulder, which is really trendy this season!

I finished up some last minute details for the wedding yesterday…it’s almost done! So crazy! I know why people only get married once now…these things are hell to plan! My bridals are Monday, so I will try to share some photos behind the scenes on snapchat of the hair/makeup trial and venue (no dress sneak peaks though – future hubby follows me, sorry!). 

Be sure to follow me if you’re wanting to see that, the rehearsal dinner, wedding day, or honeymoon real-time → katlymaupin

Fall in Texas…

Off Shoulder Ruffle Top $32 - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

Fall in Texas means something a little different than fall in New York. Let’s be honest, it actually usually just means summery clothing in olive, rust, and mustard hues. We got a cold front in a couple days ago, which means we have a high of 89 now instead of 99! Haha! Oh, how sweet it would be to actually have 4 seasons… *sigh* This off shoulder ruffle top is one of my favorites that I’ve purchased for “fall” this year, because it lets me feel like fall without sweating to death! Not to mention, it’s so dang cute! It just went on sale for $32, and also comes in black! I’ve also linked some other cute fall sweaters below for those experiencing a fall season already or  if you’re just hanging out in a 60 degree house pretending it’s fall like me! Haha!

Wedding Wednesday: 18 Day Countdown – Where Are We Now?

White Lace Dress Under $40 - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

I don’t know where the past year went! It all goes by so fast! There are only 2 Wedding Wednesday’s left after today until I change my last name – holy moly! Well, minus one final Wedding Wednesday with our photos & wedding video! We have gotten so many last minute details done this month…and still have so much to do! Haha! I wanted to do a real casual post today and share a quick update of where we are now with our planning!

I just ordered all of my bridesmaids gifts this past week, and I can’t wait to show y’all! They are getting spoiled to say the least, but they so deserve it! Good girl friends are hard to find, but I’m so glad I found them. We got the sparklers, garters, wedding bible, and the gifts we are giving our parents in the mail this week! I feel like the postman might as well just be our best friend at this point! Haha! Our floral was finalized this past week…I’m such a floral junkie, so this is one of the things I’m most excited about. And there will be a lot of it! We also finished framing all of our table numbers and painting all of the little details…EEK! I’m just so excited for y’all to see everything. It’s going to be so stunning. Our signage is being done this week, and I’m finalizing the seating chart/DJ set this afternoon! We are almost there, y’all!

Ps. This dress is a great bridal shower/rehearsal dinner option for all my brides! It’s on sale for only $35, which never hurts! It does run a little small imo, so I would size up!

Wedding Wednesday: White Lace Romper + Bridal Shower Photos + Wedding Update…

   White Lace Romper - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

We are exactly 25 days out as of today. O.M.G! I can’t believe how close it’s getting! I feel like so much has happened since the last Wedding Wednesday…and that was only 7 days ago! Haha! We’ve been getting together all of the last minute details like wedding signage, table seating, DJ set, honeymoon excursions and all of the little pretty details of a wedding. So much to do – so little time! Dylan and I also took a couple dance lessons for our first dance as Mr. and Mrs. and we had so much fun doing them! I already know my mom is going to be a blubbery mess! Saturday and Sunday, I had bridal showers thrown by my amazing friends and family. It was such a good time…I feel so blessed! Funny story – I had brought a couple of dresses to wear for my bridal showers. The first shower was a wine and cheese bridal shower and I wore this outfit. Well, I think I ate a little too much cheese (plus s’mores and other apps…yum!) and drank a little too much wine that night. I woke up the next day 3 pounds heavier and my white lace dresses I brought for the second shower that already barely fit…well, yeah. They weren’t zipping! Lol! Hence why I’m wearing navy at my bridal shower in the photos at the end of this post! I actually completely forgot that I had this white lace romper in my closet…definitely should have brought it when I packed for the weekend!

This romper is actually the short version of this romper maxi I wore not too long ago! Both versions come in a ton of colors and are so so cute! I linked the various styles and colors in this romper in the school widget below!
