The Doll In Dallas

The Doll In Dallas


So I recently had a fun little weekend getaway with Jason to Dallas, Texas! Why Dallas? Why not?! I’ve always heard that it’s such a fun and beautiful city, and I wanted to experience this Southern hub for myself. It was my first trip there, and only my second time to Texas (the first was Austin for my bachelorette).


While every city has it’s own distinct feel and culture – if I had to describe Dallas, it would be to combine Nashville with Buckhead, Atlanta.  The people were kind and lovely, the city was bright and clean, and the Southern accents made me feel right at home.  My favorite part?  The margaritas, guac, and incredible steak.  For anyone who visits, the Ritz-Carlton actually has a nightly guac and margarita tasting in the lobby.  I was in heaven! I actually liked it so much the chef printed out a copy of the recipe for me! What incredible service, kind staff, and attention to detail.  If you’re looking for a place to stay in Dallas, I definitely recommend the Ritz!


Besides gorging myself on Tex-Mex food, Jason and I enjoyed admiring the architecture of the city, and of course…some shopping! We visited the Neiman Marcus flagship store downtown, the incredibly beautiful and fashion-forward Forty-Five Ten, and the luxurious Stanley Korshak.  While out on the town, Jase and I took advantage of the lighting and snapped some photos at The Crescent. I love this outfit, because it makes me feel like I’m returning to my love of colorful and flirty looks. The top (from Zara) is so on-trend with its dramatic sleeves, and looks high-end without breaking the bank! And if you can believe it, I actually bought these earrings and skirt separately.  They just go so well together! While the skirt looks great with a crisp white shirt, it would also be so cute with a black T and a leather jacket thrown over it for some edge.  The earrings are such a deep and gorgeous blue – but they also come in so many other fun colors! My other personal favorite is the hot pink.  Wear it with a white collared shirt and a pair of jeans to dress up your casual Friday outfit for work! With my flirty fringed sandals and ruffled sleeves, I feel like this doll is ready for a fiesta! Who am I kidding… I just want an excuse to make that guacamole!
