This photo shoot was so much fun to do! I got to help out with a project that LC Photography was doing and it turned out so cute! It was pretty much just a party! I love this idea with the balloons so much!
I also love this dress so much. Of course it’s from Gentle Fawn, and it’s on sale now!!! It was originally part of their winter/holiday collection, but the white lace makes it perfect for spring, or even Valentine’s Day!
Now…it’s time for a fabulous giveaway! I’ve teamed up with an amazing group of bloggers to give YOU a chance to win: a $500 shopping spree on US! Simply enter below by completing the rafflecopter.

Help us spread the word, and shop local! @utahfashionweek will be hosting weekly giveaways where you can win entire outfits from some of Utah’s favorite independent fashion companies, and we’re kicking off week #1!
Hi Utah! Visit my instagram @kristinrosedavis to enter a giveaway for a set of lashes from Sirene Lashes! They are located in Orem, UT, so you will have to be local to win! It runs until Sunday, so go enter and good luck!
Here’s another cute idea for Valentine’s Day look idea! I love this mini tulle skirt from Bliss Tulle! I normally always picture the long maxi or midi styles when I think of tulle skirts, but this one gives it a fun, flirty look! I paired it with a lace crop top from Gentle Fawn, but you could always make it more casual with a sweater or t-shirt!
I am a huge fan of Gentle Fawn‘s casual collection. These joggers are on sale on their site right now!!! Also, why has no one told me how awesome joggers are. So much more comfortable than jeans and still appropriate to wear in public!…which is probably one of my biggest weekly concerns. I love a good jean, but any time I can find pants that are comfy, but still cute makes my day 100% better. I hate sitting at my desk all day in jeans!
…and more fringe! My bag is from Gracie Roberts, made from vegan leather and silky fringe. Their bags are made in a cruelty free environment so it’s easy on your wallet and the animals!
I need to tell you about this gorgeous turquoise cuff from Larimar Shop! The Larimar Stone is found only in the Caribbean waters of the Dominican Republic, where it’s said to be a part of the legendary Atlantis. An ancient prophet once declared that what made Atlantis special was its blue gem that bears healing powers. Because of its striking resemblance, Larimar is then named as the Atlantis Stone. This jewelry is unbelievably gorgeous and adds a fabulous pop of color to any outfit.

So…since it’s sooo great, I’m doing a GIVEAWAY on my instagram today! @kristinrosedavis Enter there and good luck!
We’re all about brows, brows, brows! I’m partnering with some of my favorite bloggers from Burn It Beauty today to give you AND a friend the chance to get your brows shaped and waxed, and win an Anastasia Brow Kit! (Brows will be done at Fashion Place Mall in Utah!)
To enter go to my Instagram @kristinrosedavis to enter! Winners will be announced there on Monday! Good Luck!
Also, I have listed some of my favorite Anastasia Beverly Hills Products below because they are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE brow products!
If you need one thing from Anastacia, I would get the Brow Wiz! You can shape, define, and fill in your brows with this one pencil! I also love the DIPBROW Pomade. I use this to fill in my brows after I have defined them with the Brow Wiz. I apply it with the #12 Brush. Use one end to apply and one end to brush through after to blend. I also love the Brow Duality for highlighting. I love this one because one end is a matte finish and the other is shimmered! Shop all of these products here!
This denim dress from Mindy Mae’s Market is darling! I wish you could see the back, but it was freezing so I kept my sweater on! It has the cutest button down back! The best thing about this dress is that you could wear it now, with a sweater, tights, or jacket to keep you warm, but you’ll be able to bring it back out during the summer when the short sleeves will be perfect!
Look for a giveaway for this dress on my instagram in the AM! (@kristinrosedavis)
Also, I wore my Made by Mary necklaces again because I rarely even take them off now! Seriously, the perfect Christmas gifts! Get them for your mom, sister, best friend…etc etc! They’re gorgeous!
So, I have this not-so-secret secret. I have been struggling so bad with my physical appearance lately. Since this summer I feel like I cannot get back in shape and no matter what I do I can’t seem to get my body to do what I want it to do. I’ve gained a decent amount of weight and it’s just throwing me! I don’t by any means think that I am “fat”, but it’s really hard to stay positive when your body keeps changing and when nothing fits the way it used to. I try so hard to not let it bother me, but taking photos every week doesn’t exactly let you forget your flaws. So I was very very nervous to take these photos. I can’t lie, I don’t love the way I look in them, but I think it was important for two reasons. 1. To remember that I don’t have to be a certain size to like myself, and 2. That this will be my motivation to get in shape and be healthy. So I’m starting my resolutions a little before the new year! Writing it here means I can’t back out right?
Even though I was so nervous, I have been so excited to share this amazing small business with you! Kiava Clothing is quickly becoming one of my favorite athletic brands and they are from right here in Utah. One thing I love about small businesses is that you get to know them on a much more personal level. The owners of this brand are some of the nicest people and so hard working! I wish you could all meet Olivia and Joseph! I can’t wait to wear my Kiava Clothing while I’m getting in shape!
Their athletic apparel is super supportive and obviously freaking cute! I have 5 of their bras now and they are my favorite things to wear, especially for high impact activity! The Braided bra (that I’m wearing in this post) and the Endurance bra are perfect for my running, zumba, and kickboxing. I also love their Dynamic bra, which has a little bit lighter support. I love wearing this to my yoga classes and just for lounging around.
You guys will all have the chance to win one of two gift cards to their site, just in time for the holidays! Look for it on my instagram around 10 am! @kristinrosedavis
Top – c/o KIAVA; Sports Bra – c/o KIAVA; Pants – c/o KIAVA; Shoes – Nike (old)

I told you…I love fringe this season! But what about these pom pons?! Umm I’m dying. Plus, it’s from Nena & Co., which is one of my favorite handbag brands!
I wanted to tell you a little bit about their story, so you can appreciate them as much as I do! They’re not only adorable, sturdy, and useful, but they have such a great cause! Nena & Co. is based out of Utah and Guatemala. They work with Guatemalan artisans to create these hand-woven (amazing!) products, which in turn provides these mothers an income to provide for their children and families. When you purchase a product from Nena & Co. you are helping to provide opportunities, like education for their children or water filters!
