Last weekend, my mom came to visit on her way back from San Antonio. The last time she and my dad were here, was for the Dallas Marathon, so we didn’t get to do much (you know, except run 26.2 miles). Prior to December, we visited the tourist spots and did a tour, it was great to explore my city like that. However, while she was in town this time we spent the day a little more naturally. We went shopping in the afternoon, but the best part was going to the Dallas Arboretum for the first time. It was a great way to spend the day, looking at the beautiful gardens and taking photos. It was her idea for the photo of the tassels on my shoes which inspired this post! It was absolutely gorgeous. We wandered around all morning looking for the statues placed throughout the Arboretum. It eventually became a game because we couldn’t find the last one!
I went with a simple look this day to show off my amazing colorful shoes. I found a great pair of cropped jeans at Anthropologie, after trying a pair and failing to get them over my calves, these ended up fitting perfectly. I guess I need a little extra stretch! At the same time, I found my white tee, and I love a good white tee, so I couldn’t pass it up! Now for the shoes, I have been so into tassels lately! When I saw these on Brittani Friedman’s Instagram, I immediately bought them in both colors. Remember my very public decision-making process? I have loved these since I saw them last year, but my size was sold out every time I wanted to buy them! So, when I saw them this year I couldn’t pass them up, and I am so happy I have them! I am sometimes a little safe with my shoe choices because I like to invest in pieces I’ll wear often. This time I decided to splurge a bit and get the fun ones! Shop them below! Plus coming soon, my favorites will be in the sidebar!
