During part of our time with Danielle Sabol, we got to explore one of the iconic rooftops of Downtown Dallas: The Fairmont. The sun was setting, and there was an air of romance even thicker than the humidity.
A couple weeks ago, we had the pleasure of shooting with Danielle Sabol, a super talented photographer from McKinney. We were introduced to her work at the One by One Show earlier this year and decided to collaborate. It has been great getting to know Danielle, and we had such a fun time working together. She actually shot with film the entire time, and we love the results!
Who would have thought leather in the dead heat of summer in Texas? I wanted to toughen up my breezy, romantic, floral blouse, so the key was to find the right silhouette and fit. Leather shorts have been on trend the last couple summers, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try absolutely fell in love with this short because of its high waist line, pleats, and bell shape cut (flattering for my thighs). Leather shorts = the new Summer Coolness.
After a bit of an unintentional hiatus, we are back in business and I am dressed accordingly. I haven't worn this suit in a while and I decided to pair it with some cool-toned articles.
We are so excited to announce that it has officially been ONE YEAR since our very first post on HIS+HER! We have thoroughly enjoyed not only documenting our wardrobes (and those of our friends too), but also growing together as a couple.
As it says in our 'About' page, we started the idea of 'HIS+HER' during our wedding planning, and it has organically grown from a Tumblr page, to our wedding graphics... to THIS. We are so grateful for all that this blog has brought us. We have met so many great people, and have had the privilege of being featured by some incredible groups!
We celebrate this year not as an accomplishment, but rather, an acknowledgement of how lucky we are to have each other and all of you who spend a minute of your day browsing the blog. That being said, we want to extend an extra special thanks to two of the most talented people we know: Joshua & Yesi Fortuna. These two have not only provided constant moral support, but also valuable time and resources. This seriously would not have begun without you two, so THANK YOU!
Again, thank you all for your support, and here's to another year!!

As you've seen in our last two posts, we had the pleasure of shooting with Sukilynn last weekend. Even though it's getting really hot out here, we love walking through downtown whether aimlessly or otherwise, so that's exactly what we did. One of the few joys of Texas summers is that it not only allows, but almost requires us to wear two of our favorite items: tassel loafers (HIS) and loose/flowing dresses (HER).
We are truly in the thick of this Texas summer, and it's become almost unbearable to dress the way I'd like to while being outside. For that reason, I decided to throw on some of the lightest (in color and in weight) garments I own. For instance, this linen blazer is un-lined and paper thin, so the sacrifice (yes, wearing ANY jacket outside in this heat is some level of sacrifice) isn't nearly as severe as it would be otherwise.

Every woman needs a simple, classic piece in her wardrobe. Black and white exudes a crisp, clean, and timeless feeling. I fell in love with this dress not only for its color story, but for its updated silhouette that's different from the typical A-line dress. This dress is so breathable and perfect for the Texas summer heat.

I decided to keep this outfit pretty simple, though pairing this medium-tone denim shirt with a summer-appropriate tie was difficult given my strict rule that one's shirt shouldn't be darker than the tie. This pair cuts it pretty close, but I'm willing to give myself a pass.
Here is the skinny on light wash jeans: I have never been one to have them in rotation in my wardrobe, but what the heck-- it's summer, and every girl needs to give them a chance (including myself). The wash on this pair is reminiscent of the 70's with an updated silhouette, giving this look edge with a green leather tank, my favorite sunnies, and wooden sole wedges. The higher the heel the closer to heaven, right? I also grabbed my tissue cardigan in case it gets chilly in the office.
