7 Spring Outfits with Blush and Stone…

To say I’m excited that warm weather is here would be an understatement! Spring is my favorite season for clothing, so I wanted to share 7 adorable spring outfits all from a boutique I recently discovered – Blush and Stone! I can’t say enough good things about the ladies over at Blush and Stone…they are the absolute sweetest! It’s rare that I check out a boutique and love almost everything on the website, and even more rare that everything has an amazing fit! These destroyed jeans are one of my absolute favorite pieces I snagged! The fit is AMAZING! Dylan couldn’t stop talking about how much he loved them (he has some weird thing about me in denim…so weird, but whatever! Lol!). I also adore these raffia shoes! They’re so comfy, and pretty much make me wanna vacay every day! And don’t even get me started on all the cute OTS dresses…I think I wore this one like 3 times while in Florida! Haha!

Bedding Refresh with Annie Selke…

Annie Selke Neutral Bedroom Bedding - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

When Dylan and I moved in together, we went back in forth like crazy on home decor…I know…WHAT?! I would’ve never guessed he would have cared so much, but somehow his opinions were trumping mine! Haha! Boy stands his ground, lemme tell ya! He is a neutral guy through and through. I asked to do a royal blue accent color, and that was even a hard “NO”! I mean, blue is not even a girly color…are you as confused as I am?! Anyways, one of the only bedding options we were both okay with was white bedding with gray accents. It wouldn’t be my top choice, but I was learning very quickly that marriage wasn’t all about what I wanted! Ugh…lol!

I love this white bedding from Annie Selke. It’s such high quality and has been really easy to maintain so far. I love the simple border detailing on it too! My favorite part about white bedding is that you can change up the look really easy just by adding new accent pillows with different colors, prints and textures! I joked the other day that whenever we move, I’m done caving on the color palette and we are at least going to have colorful throw pillows. He surprisingly gave me a “whatever makes you happy, baby” response…I’m not sure if he was joking, but I’m just going to pretend he wasn’t and hold him to it!

Does anyone else get an itch to rearrange and redecorate your home every few months?! I think looking at home decor constantly is what gets to me! Annie Selke has a great home catalog! They have a variety of organic, yet glamorous pieces that add the perfect unique touch to your home. The whole thing is swoon worthy! You can see the online catalog here, or request a print catalog here!

Favorite Packing Tips + Panasonic Blow Dryer…

Packing Tips - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

You may have seen on my Instagram or snapchat (@katlynmaupin) that Dylan and I road tripped to Florida yesterday! We will be here for a little over a week, and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s so beautiful here! I thought it would be helpful to share some of my favorite tips for when you are packing your suitcase (which PS mine is ON SALE over 50% off for the next couple days)! I always have to be really strategic when packing, because I am a serial over-packer, y’all! I need to take some lessons from y’all who can only pack 2 pairs of shoes and one handbag…seriously, though…HOW DO Y’ALL DO IT?! Haha!

1. Roll, Don’t Fold: One of my favorite tips to packing as much as possible into one suitcase is rolling your clothing! It helps conserve SO much space, and it also helps with the nasty wrinkles that come with folding clothing!

2. Compact When Possible: I also try to bring compact items as much as possible! I absolutely love this Panasonic blow dryer! It fold into itself, so it’s a huge space saver! I usually have issues with smaller dryers’ quality, so I was a little nervous, but I’ve been so impressed with it! The Panasonic uses canoe technology that prevents the hair from being stripped of it’s moisture – keeping it smoother, softer, and shinier!

3. Stack Around Hats: This is one of my favorite tips! I always have several hats I bring with me on my trips, and I don’t want them to lose their shape! To prevent damaging them, I put them in my suitcase first, then place all of my rolled clothing around it so that it acts almost as a cushion!

4. Liquids in Baggies: Y’all…if you don’t take away any of these tips…PLEASE use this one! I can’t even count on one hand how many times it finally took me to learn this lesson! Haha! I’ve had nail polish remover explode in my bag, hair spray, shampoo, nail polish…ugh…the list goes on! You think you have lids screwed on, but NOPE! I swear, they always find a way to come off and make an absolute disaster of everything in your bag!
