Fringe Gladiator Sandals at White Rock Lake


‘Let’s go to the lake this weekend!’ Whether you’re gearing up for summer ‘staycations,’ or mini roadtrips; that one simple phrase can have a plethora of definitions depending on the lake in question. Growing up in Nor-Cal, my family spent weekends at good-ole’ Konocti Harbor Resort and Spa on Clear Lake or biking around Lake Mendocino. College typically meant the shores of Lake Tahoe and Switzerland was a whole new ball game with breathtaking lakes and shades of blue that could make the Mediterranean jealous.

And now, we’re in Texas. A few days ago we ventured over to White Rock Lake. Technically it’s a reservoir (‘a large natural or artificial lake used as a source of water supply’), but who’s counting? Murky or not, it’s the perfect escape from downtown Dallas. White Rock Lake might be man made, but it’s only a 15 minute drive from downtown Dallas lined with charming (HUGE) homes with easy access for sailboats, canoes and a trail packed with people biking and walking. We stopped near the White Rock Lake boathouse as I was decked out in casual duds including some of my favorite distressed denim and my new leather fringe gladiator sandals I’m loving…


The Scene – White Rock Lake (Dallas, Texas)


Vintage Belt – I’ve had this belt my mom made in college for years. Now I’m on the outlook for vintage belt buckles. If you’re local and know any great vintage stores in Dallas, please let me know.


Fringe  Sandals for Spring – Tassels, fringe and pom pom details are all over heels and sandals this year. I’m loving these leather sandals and they are so comfortable and go with denim, shorts and this BCBG dress I wore for Margarita date night.


Casual Mom Hair-Do – Half-back with a bobby pin and then a low messy bun. Done.


Aviators & a Slightly Hazy Day – The perfect remedy for tired eyes after a night out at the Rihanna concert (more about that in the next post).

  1. Dale, I like your tank and your hair is cute… I like a quick and casual look for hair… you need it to be easy when you have a little one at home… Enjoy that nice weather there in Texas… I hope you are no where near any of the bad weather there xox

  2. Super cute post Dale – love your outfit.
    You can imagine I would have tons of lakes to talk about living in Zurich but my most funny story – which you might like is when Cassia was newly born and we went to the Turla lake – walked around it for an hour (thats how long the full circuit takes), in her wonderful pram where she could lie down . She screamed non stop the whole hour until we took her out and later relented to buying her a pram she could be propped upright in – no more screaming baby and it took us a walk around the lake to learn our lesson – smile.

    Lots of Love

  3. Oooo yay you’re in Dallas now?! Get ready for the heat my dear

  4. It is always nice to escape! It looks like a lovely area, manmade or not! Singapore is so small so the reservoir is also the closest thing to a lake. NY has some lovely lakes in central NY and we’ll be visiting next week!

  5. I love your top! And you look so cool and fabulous in this outfit! Great style!
