White Denim & Tweed in Dallas


Has anyone ever said to you, ‘bless your heart?’ Thanks to Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live and The Real Housewives of Dallas, I learned there are quirky Southern sayings way beyond, ‘Y’all.’ I always thought, ‘bless your heart,’ was a endearing, but according to hottytoddy.com, ‘the phrase has little to do with religion and more to do with a passive-aggressive way to call you an idiot. Depending on your inflection, saying “bless your heart” can sting worse than any insult.’  Did you know that and is this really true?!? I still think it sounds sweet.

Thanks to this month’s ‘D’ Magazine the newcomer edition – it’s been perfect to get the scoop on how to live in Dallas. They spill the beans on everything from ‘BIG’ hair, what-to-wear to Texas galas,  and why locals don’t use the phrase ‘Tex-Mex.’ I’m still adapting my wardrobe to Texas, and with a little white-denim inspiration from Kim at Northern California Style and a Chanel look-for-less tweed top, I was ready for date-night last weekend…


The Scene – Dallas, Texas (Uptown) on our way to dinner (Steak)


White Denim is Crisp for Spring – I know ‘Purple Rain‘ will be on repeat this weekend so if you’re in the mood for spring cleaning, round up your white denim. White skinny jeans go with everything!


Back in the USA – I have to admit that shopping is fun in Dallas. I’m back to vintage shopping and ‘fashionista on a budget‘ finds which didn’t seem possible in Switzerland! Although, I did figure out how to share my husband’s Hermès belt in Zürich.


PS – Add Tweed – I found this tweed top at TJMAXX last summer when I was 7 months pregnant. It definitely didn’t work with a baby bump, so I was excited to finally wear it. Tweed reminds me of Chanel. It’s also classy at any age as Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 90th birthday earlier this week in a key lime – Spring Grass Green woven tweed coat and matching hat.


Style Sidenote – I had the pleasure of being interviewed this week by the lovely Heather of StyleMindChic on her new Style Series with some of my favorite fashion, beauty and wellness tips. Thanks Heather! If you’re in need of a summer dress for vacay or an upcoming wedding, check out her new Boutique here.

Hope you have a great weekend! Are you a fan of tweed?
