Sweet Home Dallas

They say everything's bigger in Texas. I can certainly attest to that. I went to visit my best friend in Texas two weeks ago and I can confirm that everything is bigger over there. I experienced a great deal of love, saw extreme vastness of our beautiful earth and immense amounts of food. My heart, soul and stomach got bigger in Texas.

Besides being surrounded by two great old college friends, Cynthia of See Style Run and Lynn from Neckbreakin' Style, we went on excursion after excursion. From our first buffet at the food trucks upon arrival to our first dance at a honky tonk bar; it was a whirlwind adventure.

Anyone knows that packing and I are enemies. I don't enjoy it, it doesn't like me. We're not friends. I always leave it for the last minute, I usually under pack and I'm notorious for packing for the wrong weather. So what did I do for Texas? I packed about 10 heavy, chunky sweaters for 65-70 degree weather. Of course I did. I didn't plan it very well but luckily threw some random items in my suitcase and it's usually those randos that save me. This black midi petite dress saved me! This gem, from ASOS cost me less than $15 and became such a versatile piece. I was able to dress it down for church and brunch, and dress it up for a night out on Dallas.

Cynthia from SeeStyleRun's cowboy boots made a special appearance because they're gorgeous! The prettiest ones I've seen! I almost wanted to buy a pair but couldn't see myself making much use of them in NYC.

That weekend was one for the books & I can't wait to go back.
