This is not the first time I've fallen in love with knee/thigh-high socks. We first became a "couple" on the first day of school in 1995. Needless to say, this could be my favorite trend right now. Who didn't want to be Cher or Dion? They definitely help with the transition to the fall weather when I am not quite ready to give up wearing my go-to mini skirt.
Last night, we had the immense honor and pleasure to be invited to a lovely dinner put together by Project Snakefox. The group is centered around bringing creatives together to share a meal with one another in different venues. We had a great time meeting new people and seeing some familiar faces. There was such a beauty in meeting people [primarily through social media], yet setting down our phones (by rule) and engaging so intimately.
Yesterday's dinner took place at the Pastrana residence, inhabited by Julian and Kate Pastrana. They do absolutely brilliant work with wood, and have an amazing home/studio. Please do yourself a favor and check them out! Here are some photos of the beautiful setup and delicious dinner.
Thank you again for having us, guys!

I decided to keep it relatively simple with this outfit-- solid grey pants and a dark, barely striped jacket. However, I mixed it up a bit via some pattern play with my shirt and tie. Although this is a given, fit is absolutely everything, and I was really pleased with how it all came together.
I must say that I haven't been this excited about plaid since, well, since the 90's. I had to add this trend to add a little update to my wardrobe. I couldn't help myself but embodying grunge in this little pretty. You thirsty for more? I know I am.
We are both well aware that camouflage has been a ubiquitous trend for a couple years now, and while I had been on the fence, I finally decided to jump on the wagon with these pants.
This is the third installment of our film session with Danielle Sabol. We've had such a great time working with and getting to know her, and we highly recommend you check out her work.
HIS: Denim Jacket: Vintage (similar here) | Jeans: H&M (just like these) | T-Shirt: Gap | Shoes: Monza (also love these) | Handkerchief: Madewell (similar) | Glasses: Warby Parker | Watch: Aeromatic 1912 (just like this one)
I loved getting to mix my textured blazer with my leather shorts (currently my favorites!) for this look. And also, a heather grey t-shirt can tie any outfit together. I live in them!
I was really excited to break out my new (vintage) baby blue cotton blazer for this shoot, as I don't have much longer to wear it. Since summer is coming to an end, I decided to pair it with my forest green pants to play with some conservative color blocking.
As summer weather fades away, the days of sundresses go with it. As I always love the perfect fit of an A line dress, I couldn't resist buying it in a light weight fabric with tie straps. This dress makes me feel so flirty and is a necessity to survive Texas heat. Here's looking at you, summer. *winks*
As summer finally winds down, we took photos at this Cuban-inspired spot downtown that feels like anywhere but Dallas. The palm trees, the glass louvers... All that was missing was good salsa music and cigars. We love (and anxiously await) fall, but moments/places like this make Dallas summers much more pleasant.
