DAY DATE PICNIC + SPRING DRESSES

Old Navy Off the Shoulder Dress on A Dash of Details

This month Patrick (my hubs) and I celebrated nine years together. It still feels like yesterday when he tapped me on the shoulder in Math 201 for my homework answers ;) So romantic right?!

All jokes aside, to celebrate we decided to bring our date night outdoors. The weather in Dallas has been exceptionally nice, so naturally we popped open a bottle of rosé and enjoyed some light snacks before heading out to a casual dinner. Both of our schedules have been exceptionally busy the last few months, so it was nice to catch up (sans phones), relax and enjoy the beautiful weather during the middle of the week.

A LOVE LETTER TO SPRING

Old Navy March

Oh, Spring. You are by far my favorite season.

Fresh flowers blooming, the perfect temperature to spend all day outdoors (well, if you live in Dallas), and lighter layers and flowy dresses. For these simple reasons, Spring has always been the season I feel refreshed and recharged.

ICYMI, I was on #springbreak last week in Maui– I will be recapping our incredible trip soon, but it honestly was the perfect way to reset the year and come back home feeling inspired and ready to take on the world.

NEW YEARS EVE ENTERTAINING WITH LA VAQUITA

First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends. Today is the first day I pulled out my computer in 5 days! I honestly cannot remember the last time I have ever done that. It felt so great to unplug and really enjoy quality time with my family in Arizona.  We are headed back to Dallas today and I am excited to start prepping for a little New Year’s eve get together at our house.

With a little help from La Vaquita, I am sharing my three go-to appetizer recipes that will be a hit at any get-together and how to host a stress-free New Year’s eve party.

A GIRL AND HER BOOTS

Ali Schilling in Justin Boots

My uncle always told me that until you have your first pair of cowboy boots, you are not officially a Texan.  He was born and raised in Austin, Texas and I have always adored his southern accent.  Every year since I was a little girl we would visit Austin in the summer for two weeks.  This is where my love for Texas (and fashion) started.

WINTER WHITE OUT

JMcLaughlin Winter White

According to the news, Dallas is about to get hit with an “arctic blast” tonight. Not really sure what that means, but I know a few things are for sure;  I will be lighting a fire, making one of my winter soup recipes and wrapping up in comfy pjs and a blanket.  Nothing gets me more in the holiday spirit than a cold winter night.  Anyone else still adjusting to this whole pitch black at 5:30 thing? I am definitely not loving the shorter days but my sleep game has been on point.

#NEVERBASIC

Old Navy Tee

If you know me, you would know there is nothing I love more than a classic tee. I am always on the hunt for the best fitting tee on the market. Whether it be $100 or just $5, the fit and quality are the most important when it comes to finding the perfect tee.  So when I heard Old Navy was reinventing the fit, fabric and wash of their tees, I knew I had to give them a try. Needless to say, Old Navy’s tee are anything but basic. I am so excited to have teamed up with Old Navy to style their #neverbasic tees two ways.

ALL AMERICAN STYLE

White Linen Shirt and Bright colored scarf

When you think of all American style, what brand comes to mind?  If you are from the East Coast than many of you would think of the brand, J.McLaughlin.  The brand was started by two brothers in 1977 in Manhattan in the quintessential Upper East Side. The brands classic take on current trends is what led to their success and expansion into Texas and now 100 new stores. To me, the brand is the epitome of Southern classic style.  Last week myself, Mackenzie and Amanda hosted a shopping and dinner event in Dallas with a few friends to check out the new Summer/Spring collection.
