June started off on a busy note, but I was able to squeeze in some vacation time this past weekend. I hadn’t been to Dallas in over 8 years, so that was the destination for our 4-day getaway.
The first thing that came to mind was “What do I pack?” After looking at the hot forecast, I knew that short-sleeve shirts were probably the best option. Especially, when my boyfriend and I planned to walk around and see Dallas.
One of our first Dallas adventures was a stop at the Klyde Warren Park. It was such an amazing experience. The park is surrounded by the large buildings that help create the Dallas skyline. It was great seeing all types of people enjoying their Sunday afternoon with family and friends.
To help enjoy the sunny day comfortably, I wore one of my newest Pac Sun short sleeve camp shirts. The funky print and pink color made it a must-have for my wardrobe. And what better time, then to wear it on hot Dallas day.
I paired my shirt with some Zara light blue torn skinny jeans and my new white hi-tops Converse. The two pairs fit perfectly with my shirt, giving my outfit a summer ready look. To top of my look, I added my signature snapback.
Overall, I enjoyed my time at Klyde Warren Park. The people, cityscape and food trucks made it a wonderful experience.
I will be sharing another Dallas look next week. Stay tuned!
I live for the weekends! Even more so for the weekend wear. Having a regular 9 to 6 that requires business attire can do that to you. It can be easy to ditch the workwear for sweats, but when heading out with your friends, try adding a couple of these pieces I can’t live without for your fall weekend wear.
Flannels have been a stable for me since freshman year of high school (10 years ago). You can’t go wrong with a flannel, but instead of buttoning it up, use it as a layer. As temperature slowly drop, layering your clothes can be a better option than going HAM with sweaters in 70 degree weather.
With my recent obsession of longer length tees, I recommend trying them out. Honestly, I’ve never been a big fan of wearing a plain crew neck T-shirt, but longer length tees have changed my mind. They are more fashionable than typical plain shirts, and they look pretty good layered with a flannel. Find 2 for $30 at Pac Sun. They have a variety of colors and patterns that you can mix and match.
Pair your flannel and tee with a good pair of torn jeans. Now I know a good pair of jeans can cost a fortune nowadays, but getting the right pair can be a fashion investment. Zara has a great variety of fashion denim that are similar to what you see on the runway, but don’t have that crazy price tag. Their denim is actually more affordable than brands like True Religion or 7 for all Mankind. Purchase a pair of Zara jeans and take your weekend wear to the next level.
Finish off your weekend look with a good pair of shoes and accessories. For my look I went with some white leather converse, also known as my old faithfuls. Go this route or try a pair of boots. Complete the look with your favorite hat and watch, and your read for the weekend!
