Valentine’s Day is always a little difficult for me. I feel like there’s a lot of pressure to find the right gift or dinner plans etc. And then what if you’re not dating anyone? As much as I try to tell myself I don’t care, there’s always tiny little part of me that feels sad if I don’t have anything to do! So the Outlets at Traverse Mountain and I are going to try to take a little bit of the pressure off of you with a Valentine’s Giveaway. Whether you want to find the perfect outfit, get a yummy meal, or pick up some chocolates for your date (or yourself 🙂 ) the Outlets are the perfect place to find all of the above!
P.S. I got this top at the Michael Kors Outlet for 70% off and these pants for 40% off at the J.Crew outfit. I’d say that’s a pretty good deal on a date night look!
We are giving away a $100 giftcard to use at the Outlets at Traverse and a box of chocolate dipped strawberries from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory! Enter to win on my instagram (@kristinrosedavis)! And men, you can enter too because a little help with the bill would be nice wouldn’t it?
If you want some extra entries follow along on these as well:
If any of you follow me on snapchat then you probably saw the little disaster that happened on this shoot. Actually it ended up not being too bad, but it could have been so much worse! We drove out towards the Spiral Jetty in Utah to shoot, but we didn’t realize exactly how bad the roads would be. Jordan and I had a little accident where we spun off the road and got stuck in a ditch because of the snow! Oopsie! Haha if you follow me at all, you probably also know that I have had the worst luck this month with cars…I got side swiped on the freeway in early January, got a flat tire in my rental on the way home from another shoot, and this little incident…sooo needless to say, I feel like I probably shouldn’t get into a car anymore! We were in Jordan’s car, but I feel like I brought on the bad luck. :/
There was no service where we were so we started trying to dig the car out of the snow. After that didn’t work we figured we had better start walking to find service. The Spiral Jetty is kind of in the middle of nowhere. So we started walking…and walking…and walking…no bars! I felt like the guy on that commercial waving his phone in the air to try to get service…o wait, I was that guy. But, you guys will not believe it! After not seeing another car the entire time we were there, a tow truck drove by! What? How in the world did we get that lucky? Plus he didn’t even charge us! #blessed
Like I said, it could have been much worse! I was worried we were going to have to sleep in the car if it got too cold and dark to keep walking. But we got the car out and were able to get some shots! Hallelujah!
This dress is from Bling It On Dress Rentals. I thought it was perfect for Valentine’s or a Sweethearts Dance, but it also kind of makes me think of Star Wars for some reason? Anyone else? I love the flowing panels and how unique the neckline is. Bling It On has tons of cocktail and formal dresses available to rent! We all know how much money buying a dress costs, and you only get to wear it once anyway! If you are in Utah, I suggest visiting them if you have any upcoming events or dances!
It’s really cold. Like really really cold. So I decided to share this dress with you because it reminds me of CA and CA sounds so much warmer. This cute tasseled baby doll dress is by Glam LA Apparel, so no wonder it reminds me of CA! Glam LA has a relaxed, fun feel with gorgeous and well made fabric! Of course I wish it was warm enough for me to wear it without a jacket, but this is one of my favorite jackets I’ve ever owned! It’s gorgeous and goes with just about any outfit! I’ve linked it below, along with some of the other colors it comes in!
This week has been a little overwhelming for me and I think an all black outfit just kind of speaks for itself…so I just wanted to share this quote that I found on pinterest today instead of telling you the joys of wearing a pleated leather skirt 🙂
“Breathe, my friend. You are not old, you are young. You are not a mess, you are normal. Extraordinary, perhaps. In the blink of an eye your life will change. And it will continue to change for decades to come. Enjoy it. Embrace it…be grateful for the ride. You are not old. You are young. And faith will get you everywhere. Just you wait.”
This outfit has three of my favorites things…a leather jacket, a statement necklace, and animal print…what could possibly be better? I love the little flare on the bottom of this Copper & Ella dress! I wanted to turn this girly dress into something a little more edgy, so I paired it with motorcycle boots and a leather jacket. I think a leather jacket adds so much character to any outfit!
Also you probably can’t tell because my face looks happy, but it was like 20 degrees outside and windy when we were shooting this! I dressed up as Marilyn Monroe for Halloween, but I think this is the closest I’ve gotten to a Marilyn moment with all that wind!
I’m sure most of you guys know by now that Rachel Parcell just came out with a clothing line! Rachel’s line is gorgeous and feminine! I love the flirty lines of this skirt! Just like this skirt, her whole collection is timeless and filled with styles that you will want to wear over and over again, year after year!
Ok first off I need to tell you about my lashes. I just got them done at Amazing Lash Studio in American Fork (@amazinglashamericanfork) and I loooove them! It’s basically like a lash spa. It’s gorgeous and so pretty when you walk in and they have the most comfortable tables! I seriously was asleep almost the whole time! They offer high-quality, semi-permanent eyelash extensions in 4 different styles! You can get Gorgeous, Natural, Sexy, or Cute! I listed the descriptions below for you to decide which style you like! Trust me you need to go here! My stylist actually combined the Gorgeous and Sexy to make mine pop! I love a full look, but I like the flare on my outer lashes still due to the shape of my natural eye. I also don’t go super long just because I have a shallow lid. So they totally work with you to find your best style!
Gorgeous – longer, thicker lashes spread across your entire lash line to give you the ultimate bombshell look.
Natural – Your lashes, only better. Add length to follow the contours of your natural lash line to enhance the natural beauty of your eyes.
Sexy – Make every wink count by adding an extra flirtatious flat on the outer corners of your eyes.
Cute – Big, bright beautiful eyes are all yours! Add length to the center of your lashes to make your eyes appear larger.
So if you are in Utah, so need to check them out. If you go let them know I sent you! I wanna hear how much you love them!

I think my favorite thing to wear is a pair of jeans and a white tee. But you can make it look so different depending on what accessories you pair it with.
With this outfit I decided to dress it up a little with a fun necklace and bright heels. Baublebar has some beautiful statement jewelry right now, like this Showgirl Fringe Strand. I like pairing it with a simple outfit so that the necklace is the main focus. However, these heels are an eye-catcher too, and surprisingly very comfortable. Plus they are on sale AND an extra 30% off right now!
