Margarita Chic for Date Night in Dallas

Date-night-style-Cinco-de-Mayo

¿Cuál es tu comida favorita? Yep, I’m taking it back to Spanish I today asking, ‘What is your favorite food?‘ Mine is Mexican food. I love it and missed Mexican cuisine more than any other dish while living in Switzerland. Sure, there were some Mexican restaurants in Zürich, but with Swiss spices, there was always something that was just off from the tortillas to the salsa.

One night in Zug, Switzerland at an ‘authentic‘ Mexican restaurant, I spotted ‘horse meat,’ on the menu. I completely lost my appetite. I was looking for Barbacoa, not BBQ’d My Little Pony, so I decided to make tacos at home and keep my chips & guac cravings at bay until I was back in California. Now that we’re living in Texas, I’m in Mexican food heaven and taking full advantage in Dallas. I’ll share my favorite spots below so far, plus what-to-wear secrets if you’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo in your city tonight…

The Scene – Dallas, Texas on our way to Mesomayo Mexican Restaurant

What-to-Wear – Restaurants can be packed on Cinco de Mayo so I recommend a flirty patterned dress in case you get splashed with a margarita. I scored this BCBG dress last week at Ross.

Mesomayo-Mexican-restaurant-Dallas-Texas

The Best Mexican Restaurants in Dallas?! * – So far, I’m loving Mesomaya (gourmet), Urban Taco (fun, stylish, small portions), Unlce Julios (reminds me of Chevy’s), Gloria’s (El Salvadorian & Mexican food). *I know there are so many more, so if you’re a local in Dallas, please share your favorites!

Best-Margarita-Dallas-Texas

Frozen or on the Rocks? – I used to be an on-the-rocks only gal, but frozen margaritas are so popular in Dallas (probably because they’re so refreshing in the heat). At Mesomayo I order the top shelf frozen margarita with a shot of Grand Marnier on top (highly recommended) and salt on the rim (I love salt!).

Downtown-Dallas-Savvy-Spice

Long Hair, Don’t Care – I’ve had no time for highlights lately (a 3 hour hair appt. with a 10-month-old is a nightmare), so my hair is a bit darker these days. I just bought these Light Blond with Golden Blonde clip-in extensions on Amazon to match. PS – If you’re on Prime, your hair can be to your house by tomorrow. Gotta love Amazon!

wear-nude-heels-to-elongate-legs

Nude Heels! – I’ve been using this style trick for years. Whether they are lace-up, chunky or stilettos, look for a pair of nude heels in the closest shade to your skin tone to help elongate your legs.

Dark-purple-Mac-lipstick

Dark Lipstick for Date Night – Even if you have pale skin like me, give ‘Rebel’ by MAC a try. It’s semi-matte and a deep merlot shade of lipstick that I’ve worn for years.

Will you have a margarita today? Frozen or on the rocks?

  1. You are looking amazing Dale, I like your dress, very cute xox… I know what you mean about going to other places and looking for a type of food you are used to and finding it not quite right… and absolutely no horse meat for me either… I would be a vegetarian then xox

  2. REALLY cute purse, dress and shoes Dale. I love Mexican also. There’s a big hispanic population in Texas (so jealous) so there should be a variety of places available. We only have a couple of places here.
