Happy Holidays!! Wow, I can’t believe this year is coming to an end. I shared on my Instagram several days ago that I’d be sharing more about my DSW Style Squad sisters in an upcoming post – but then life and work got the best of me and this post never went live. So here we are, better late than never, right?

As we near the end of our amazing and life changing campaign with DSW, I wanted to share a little bit more about the “squad” and help you get to know us a better!

I feel really fortunate that I got to do this project with actual friends of mine!

Sarah is the content creator behind The Cultured Fashionista. I remember meeting Sarah for the first time years ago at a Kendra Scott event in Baybrook (a suburb of Houston), our friend Rosalynn (also on the squad) was hosting the event! I love Sarah because she works so hard and is super stylish and creative. Her and her husband Rami recently renovated a home in Houston and have the sweetest little pup named Humphrey. Sarah’s closet is one that I would love to raid! She is so genuine and I look forward to many more adventures together!

Shay is the editor of shaymone.com! She’s from Dallas like me! I can’t remember how we met exactly, but I remember following her page for the longest because we were both in Houston! We both work in the retail industry and when we’re together can share stories and relate to what the other is going through. I love Shay because she is total mom goals. I drive myself crazy with 2 kids – she has THREE and they are little! She has the best style and truly inspires myself and many other mamas out there – you don’t have to let yourself go just because you have a lot going on! 

Roselyn! Ah! My love. (RoselynWeaver.com) I can’t say enough kind words to describe this sweet soul. I still remember a few years ago when we were at an event and she told me that she and Brandon were going to start the process of adoption. And I’ll never forget getting the text that Baby Weaver was HERE! I admire Roselyn so much for always getting her ish done! She works full time like many of us, but she is probably the most consistent, full-time working blogger I’ve ever seen. She’s cranking out content daily and I’m over here just trying to keep my head above ground. I have so much love and admiration for her hustle! 

Last but definitely not least is Dawn (dawnpdarnell.com)!!! I don’t remember when we met exactly, because we were always at events together in Houston, but Dawn is seriously the sweetest and funniest person. When we’re all together, you can count on her to keep us laughing. She’s a mommy to a precious little boy and has grown so much over the last few years with her blog/business! I just love, love, lover her energy! There’s no way you can be around her and not smile. She has the biggest heart for people and is such a go getter! 

I love that we all bring something different to the table. We all have different talents that are unique to us and that’s what has made our squad so special. I hope you’ve enjoyed how we’ve styled our shoes from DSW over the last several months! It’s our goal to inspire you and help you feel confident with your style!

We’re heading out on a trip soon to celebrate our brand deal + a great year and I can’t wait! 

Now – if you’ve made it this far, here is a little peek at what I’m getting for Christmas. (I should say … what I got for Christmas – past tense – because this post is super late lol!)

1. Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis 

2. Louis Vuitton Key Pouch

3. Replenishment of makeup essentials (I’ll do my Sephora haul in a separate post!)

THANK YOU so much for reading!! I appreciate you all and I look forward to the new year. There’s so much I want to do and share with you all!! I’ll get my reflections and “best of 2018” post up soon! 

XO – Stephanie
