Locals weren’t kidding when they said ‘fall is amazing in Dallas.’ Warm temps, blue skies and sunshine almost every day this month is a perfect way to start each morning. I’m also addicted to my old fave, the Salted Caramel Frappucino at Starbucks, which I had to skip the past 3 years living in Switzerland.
The Swiss Starbucks didn’t carry the sea salt which added to a complete condiment conundrum I had while living there. Fast food restaurants charged for ketchup and mayo. Salt and pepper might not even be on the table at eateries and many Chinese restaurants actually charged for fortune cookies – almost $3 each! Solution – I had a little condiment keychain with compartments for sea salt, pepper and even paprika for my husband when bland dishes needed a bit of flavor. So yes, Fall in Dallas is off to a good start as I slipped into a pelican print dress on a recent excursion that can easily be paired under a trench with suede boots when the temps actually dip…
The Scene – Dallas Design District. We recently discovered an amazing Mexican restaurant called El Bolero. The Design District is quirky and full of art galleries, modern furniture stores, and antique malls like Lula B’s and White Elephant Antiques. They are a must-see if you’re ever visiting Dallas.
I wore my nude Versace platform sandals (last seen in Venice beach) with this pelican print dress from Zara. PS Dallas fashionistas, have you heard?…
Finally, a Zara in Dallas! The first Zara in Dallas is opening in North Park Mall this winter. Yay! If you’re from Europe, you’re probably thinking ‘um, big deal,’ but I have always found my favorite printed dresses from hot air balloons, seahorses, and owl print at the European retailer, so I’m sure Dallas fashionistas will be excited to get their stylish staples there too.
