Budget Friendly White on White Spring Outfit…

Long Cardigan Duster $39 and White Lace Top $36 - Cute White on White Spring Outfit - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin) - Bella and Bloom Boutique

Happy Thursday babes! I can’t believe how quickly this week is flying by! I swear February and March never happened?! Anyways, I wanted to share one of my absolute favorite outfits to date from my trip to Colorado! I always love a white on white outfit…it’s so chic! I had been in spring mode since January, because #Texas, so I didn’t want to throw on bulky coats whenever I went to Colorado. Plus, the weather was super moderate! It was in the mid 50’s on the mountain during the day, which was really nice! This long cardigan/duster (what’s the correct term, anyways?!) has quickly become one of my favorite pieces in my closet. I’m honestly not a huge layering kind of girl…probably because living in Texas, you just don’t have much of a need for it…but I am all on board when it comes to this duster! I bought it for my shop, Bella and Bloom Boutique, and quickly pulled one from the stock for myself, because #obsessed. It’s buttery soft and only $39! I just want to curl up in it all day! It’s also crazy flattering…I’m pretty sure you instantly lose 50 pounds or something when Continue Reading

I was super excited when I got this red lace midi dress for Bella and Bloom Boutique! It looks almost identical to this Self Portrait dress, but without the $500 price tag! This dress is so pretty for church, upcoming weddings, or date night! I have had a million questions about getting it in white also to wear to bridal showers, rehearsal dinner etc. for all of my engaged gals, and yes – it will also be coming in white soon when our bridal collection is released!

Friday we are leaving for our condo in Colorado…eeek! Our trip in December was canceled last minute, because they didn’t have enough snow yet. This winter has been so weird! We are having an extended stay this trip though since we missed out on so much snowboarding time in December! I seriously can’t wait to be back on the slopes! I will try to be active on instastories while I’m there! I always forget to post on instastories, but I’ll try to remember! It’s always so pretty on the mountain!

Honest Lipsense Review

Honest Lipsense Review - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog

Happy Wednesday! Today’s post is a really fun for me, because I finally got to try out the highly talked about Lipsense liquid lips! I have friends that sold it for years, but I had just never got around to trying it! I’ve been super curious what all the chatter was about, so I wanted to do a full Lipsense review to let y’all know the 411!


PROS:

1. Stays All Day: Pretty much all liquid lips claim to be long-wearing, but they never seem to hold up after a few hours and especially  not after eating/drinking. This is definitely by far the longest lasting lipstick I’ve ever tried…and I’ve pretty much tried every lipstick on the market…#lipstickjunkie. It will literally last the entire day until you’re ready to take off your makeup and go to bed! No more “butt hole lips” and bathroom breaks every hour to reapply! Continue Reading
