Tuxed

While home for the holidays I maximized every second I had to ensure that I caught up with fellow bloggers, saw girlfriends from HS and a squeezed in a few very important meetings along the way. My schedule may have been jam-packed but it allowed me the opportunity to check out some of Dallas’ best spots, including CBD Provisions at one of my favorite hotels, The Joule in Downtown Dallas. Having brunch at CBD is ...

‘Tis the Season

Few things are more enjoyable to me than spending Christmas in Texas. The week at home is filled with quite a bit of family time, catching up with girlfriends, holiday parties and of course, some last minute gift shopping. In between the harried Christmas errands and catch-up dates, my family has a standing tradition of doing brunch at The Zodiac in Dallas followed by a photo with Santa at Neiman Marcus downtown. {Side note, I ...

Graffitied

There is a fantastic spot in Dallas right near the new up and coming area of Trinity Groves that is simply covered in bad ass street art. The bold colors, vibrant hues and interesting mixture of artistic touches and flair. However, with that said, it also makes for one pretty fantastic backdrop to compliment my summer date night basics. Cut-offs? Check. Cropped tee? Check. Ahmazing heels? Check! And a great clutch? Check. If you find ...

When July rolls around we’re all pretty much in an elated casual summer style mindset but then the relentless July heat hits and all of the sudden it’s a whole new fashion game.  You don’t want to look like a drowned rat, you want to still look like your stylish self and as much as we’d all love for a bikini to be suitable daily attire during the summer it just isn’t. {Unless of course ...

This Julie Brown Designs shift dress not only has an impeccable fit but the print modernizes it along ...

Blue Skies Ahead

Have you ever had one of those moments when you find a dress that you feel was actually made for you? No, well that's your loss, but if you have then you know what I'm talking about here.  This Annie Griffin maxi had that impact on me, I put it on and did not think twice. I wore it to an event at the Dallas Museum of Art while back home in Texas for a ...

It’s A Short Story

I snagged these embellished, high waisted shorts practically the same day that they hit ASOS and likely while my walk to work looked more like the ski slopes of Vail than sun drenched streets covered in greenery and pretty flowers. So you better believe that I busted these out when I headed down south to warmer weather (i.e. 80 degrees!) The intricate details on the shorts required keeping things up top pretty simple but as ...
