The definite weather shift in Dallas has caused me to scramble for those sweaters in the back of my closet.  I am craving all things plaid, oversized and comfy while still staying chic.  I turn into a total homebody when the temperature drops which normally has me craving some interior updates, new holiday decor and yummy fall recipes.

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”- Socrates

It has now been three months since we moved to Dallas, and to say I am not completely head over heels with this city would be a lie. Shopping, great food, and amazing friends have left me feeling full. I found myself focusing most of my time off of my phone and computer  (minus, the countless hours of work) without reason.

For the last two weeks, I went back and fourth about calling it quits, but every time the thought came into my mind I had a sinking feeling in my stomach. I still felt like there was something missing.  The more I sat on the idea, the more I came to the realization that A Dash of Details is my passion. It is something I wake up in the morning for, and it is something I could spend countless hours on (even if only 2 people are reading my letters everyday).  Never in a million years did I think this blog would give me so much joy and an outlet for all of the things I love.  The funny thing is I was never much of a writer growing up, but sitting down at my computer screen everyday, thoughts just spill out onto the pages.  This space has always been about what I love, who I am and all the little details in between.

While I don’t know where I am going just yet, I am focusing on building the new rather than focusing my energy on where I was.   So, in case you missed me, I am back and ready to spill my heart out onto these pages again.


Celestina Top / Band of Outsiders Stripe Shorts (on sale!) / Vince Espadrilles / Paul Smith Churchill Sunglasses (c/0) / Kate Spade Bag (old) (similar here) /  Initial Necklace / Catbird Ring and Ring/ Essie Ballet Slippers / YSL ‘Rouge Volupte Shine’ Lipstick

‘Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.’ – Marilyn Monroe

There is something to be said about the feeling when you get a new pair of shoes or really anything new. It’s a complete feeling of joy and excitement about all of the places those shoes will take me.  I know this may sound extremely superficial and spoiled, but for me clothes have always been a way for me to keep track of memories.  I remember what I wore on the first day of Kindergarten, my first day of my first job, and even when I got my heart broken for the first time. Feeling locked in- doors due to all of this snow is really making me crave sunshine and a good shopping trip to cheer me up!

And we’re off…again…

This time we are headed to sunny Scottsdale for a quick trip with a major wedding to-do list in front of us.  Hopefully we will be checking some of the big things off our list, like setting a date! Our hopes are to sprinkle in a little golf, hiking, and of course some quality family time.

I honestly do not know what I am more excited for, A. starting the wedding planning process or B. getting out of this horribly cold weather.  I am definitely packing some shorts for this trip to 75 degrees and sunny (jealous yet?)
