36 hours in Dallas: Fashion finds, food and more!

This past week I took a fun trip to Dallas … and no matter where I travel, I always come home feeling inspired! Lucky me, I have this little corner of the internet where I get to share it with all of you ♥️ The humidity immediately got the best of my hair (!!), which made me even more curious about what everyone would be wearing in such warm weather. So, upon arrival, I did a quick change into this comfy t-shirt dress, and off we went for dinner in Highland Park. The second I sat down, I glanced at the table next to me and noticed a mom dining with her two daughters. Her perfectly casual outfit was so simple, and SO chic! It reminded me that sometimes the best outfits are the uncomplicated ones. Add elevated shoes and accessories and you’re good to go!

Today’s post is about the outfit I saw everywhere in Dallas, and the cool shoes and accessories that took it to the next level. I’m also sharing all the great finds I spotted trend shopping, as well as what I packed, and the best meals of the trip! I hope this post helps you get ready you’re going somewhere sunny and humid, or if you happen to live in hot and humid weather.  Trip prep can vary depending on the weather, so keep reading for some style board inspo and new picks. Happy packing! 🧰

Going off topic here — but I’ve long admired the beautiful homes in Dallas, and have followed several interior designers for years. Our walks through these tree-lined Highland Park streets were definitely a highlight, and if you love white painted brick exteriors, a stroll in this neighborhood should be on your list!


The outfit I saw everywhere — style board inspo

One of my favorite things about traveling is seeing the things stylish women wear when they’re out and about. The outfit everyone was wearing: a cute top, white denim, sandals, a designer bag and gorgeous jewelry! So easy and sophisticated. Keep reading below to get the look!

My new purchase!

I fell in love with this bright Ulla Johnson top, and I plan on wearing it with white Mother Insider jeans or Mother Cream Puff Dazzler denim.  These metallic sandals work with basically everything, and so do these sandals. This Ulla dress and top also caught my eye — Saks has the best selection right now!

New color combos spotted at Frame

This is the time of year when the color palette slightly changes. The cinnamon color, mixed with white and denim, is so pretty and sophisticated. Utility green is always a favorite color — combine it with black and/or white for a stylish look.
