Lavender Backless Maxi Dress…

Happy Monday! I’m extra chipper this morning for a few reasons! For one, UH HOW AMAZING IS THIS LAVENDER MAXI DRESS?! I don’t know why designers don’t make basically everything in this color, because it’s absolute perfection! I feel like it is one of those colors that would look beautiful on any skin tone too, no matter how dark or light! It does come in a bunch of other colors/patterns though if you aren’t as smitten with this color as I am!

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that my birthday is coming up! I wanted to do something to give back to y’all for always being so supportive of my blog! I truly consider all of y’all my friends! I decided to do “10 Days of Giveaways”, so there will be a new fabulous giveaway every single day for 10 days! Day 1 is already up and running – a GLAMboxes acrylic makeup organizer. Day 2 started last night and you can win a ton of e.l.f. Cosmetics goodies and the sold out limited edition Quay x Desi Perkins mirrored aviators! They are still open to enter, so be sure to do that before they close! Also, make sure to check back on Instagram daily to enter the next day’s giveaway! There are so many amazing prizes including lots of Kylie Cosmetics, a TULA gift card, Baublebar, a Red Dress Boutique gift card, T3 hair styling tools and more!

I am heading to Florida for 10 days on Thursday, so I’ve been in vacation mode for the past two weeks! Oops! I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel though now that it’s getting closer…I’m so ready for a break from school! Taking 18 hours while trying to keep up with work is no joke, y’all! Haha! Be sure to follow me on snapchat (katlynmaupin), so we can vacation together! 🙂

LASTLY, I am teaming up with some of my blogger girlfriends to give away an $850 Nordstrom gift card! Be sure to enter at the end of this post!  Continue Reading

Best of the Shopbop SALE!

I always love when Shopbop has a sale, because it’s the perfect time to score pricier pieces for less! I was super bummer because I wanted to snag the amazing Self Portrait dress for my bridal shower, but it sold out in my size by the time I was ready to add it to my cart! UGH…the hunt continues. I was mainly focusing on spring/vacation wear shopping though, anyways! I was still able to get this gorgeous open back maxi dress, rainbow tassel earrings, high low maxi, Kate Spade tumbler, tassel earrings in white and pink, Vogue coffee table book, lace dress, beach hat, and marble phone case though! I also picked up another sticky bra which is what I wear with all of my strapless and open back dresses! They’re a life saver!

I wore this white ASHLEYlauren gown for the Captain’s Dinner while on the cruise a few weeks ago! I loved it so much that I’m even considering wearing it for my rehearsal dinner! I’m loving all of the sheer accents lately…and y’all already know how I feel about off the shoulder styles! I’ve been on such a big white dress hunt lately trying to find the perfect dresses for all of my upcoming bridal events! I’ve been eyeing a ton of cute white maxis for my bridal shower! We are going to do our registry in a couple of months, and I’m already getting so excited! What are some things that are “MUSTS” to make sure we add to our registry?! I don’t even know where to start! Haha!

Any help is appreciated! Have a great weekend! <3

Gearing Up For Vacation Season with Advil…

*Sponsored by Advil and Socialstars™


This time of the year is my absolute favorite for many reasons! Spring break and my birthday are right around the corner, which means I’m crazy busy preparing for vacations! I always seem to get sick in the beginning of the year, because the weather patterns are crazy! One day it will be 30 degrees, the next day it’s 80 degrees with crazy humidity, and the next it will be 45 degrees with pouring down rain! Texas weather is always crazy, but when seasons are changing…oh man…it’s on another level! And of course, it’s about the most inconvenient time EVER for me to come down with a cold or sinus problems. The last thing I want to be doing is sniffling every two seconds with horrible sinus congestion while jetting off to paradise! Haha! I constantly have Advil Cold & Sinus stocked away in my medicine cabinet for cold and sinus relief in case I come down with something trying to ruin my fun! I always take Advil Cold & Sinus when I can feel myself starting to get sick for sinus pressure relief. It is beyond crucial this time of the year…after all, it’s vacay season!

*Use as directed: 1 caplet/liquid-gel every 4-6 hours while symptoms persist. If symptoms do not respond to 1 caplet/liquid-gel, 2 may be used. Do not use more than 6 caplets/liquid-gels in 24 hours unless directed by a doctor.

Do y’all have any fun vacations coming up too with spring just around the corner?! Would love to hear where you are heading! Continue Reading
