Literally, the first thing that came to mind with this outfit was middle school! I love that 90s fashion is making a comeback, because that’s what I feel most comfortable in. Y’all know I love a great F21 find and this dress is no exception. The braided detail on the straps and front pockets make this young, girly look just work no matter your age!
So, I spent the past weekend in gallivanting around Dallas and had the best time! My husband was working there so I was basically by myself the entire weekend, but I made the most of it! From museums to restaurants to even a trip to Waco here are a few things I did!
Mercat Bistro: for breakfast. This is probably my favorite restaurant in Dallas. You literally feel like you’re stepping into a Parisian cafe when you walk into this place. I’m obsessed with the chocolate croissant (I mean.. how can you go wrong?!). The fruit bowl is massive and the oatmeal is delicious, but the breakfast tacos are where it’s at! I love the tex-mex theme that seems to be present in every Dallas restaurant.
The Honor Bar: for lunch. I ordered the Macho salad with a glass of Rose and it was the perfect lunch! The atmosphere here is also so cool and chill. They have the coolest patio with a fire pit (in the middle of a shopping center, BTW!) and lots of outside seating. I definitely recommend getting here early and grabbing a table outside!
Mi Cocina: for lunch. I’m a sucker for spicy tex-mex and this place delivered! I ordered a skinny mango margarita and nachos with poblano peppers. My eyes were literally sweating, but I ate every. single. one!
The Rustic: for dinner. This place is loud, but if you’re down for a good time and a night out drinking, then this is your place! The food was eclectic, but delicious! There was a live band and they served the beer in massive glass goblets… need I say more?!
Eddie V’s: for dinner. Upscale dining, but worth every penny. I
noshed devoured oysters, lobster bisque, crab, steak, lobster mac-n-cheese & a delicious caesar salad. I was so stuffed I almost had to be rolled out, but it was so, so worth it!
JFK Museum: at Dealey Plaza. This was probably the most interesting thing I did! I’ve been so intriguied by the JKF assassination since 8th grade when our history teacher did a two-week study on it, and I spent almost half-a-day here! It’s kinda creepy when you’re standing next to the exact spot where the killer once stood, but this is a must do while in Dallas.
The Silos: in Waco. If you’re a Fixer Upper fan, you already know all there is to know about the Magnolia Marketplace in Waco. This place was so dreamy and I wish I could have bought everything I saw! I braved the crowds and bought a few things for my sister and of course a ton of cupcakes from the bakery. Y’all. The buttercream on these cupcakes are what dreams are made of! The Lemon Lavender was by far my favorite flavor!
