If you’re only knowledge of Dallas is the acclaimed 80’s television show (and short reboot) Dallas, then you probably imagine it to be opulence of oil, diamonds and cowboy hats. While it’s still pretty opulent, it’s not at dated as some would think. DFW is a thriving metropolis with a very young demographic, an eclectic fashion and art scene and vast array of culture and entertainment. And while Dallas stills hosts the State Fair, the city is a far cry from the cowboy town of the past.
Patricio has moved into a place this summer where bananas are very much in – Urban Outfitters being the main supplier, and how could he pass up the mint version? This outfit was truly meant for a music festival (not sure if you remember what happened there), but it worked for a day out in Dallas. I’ve been dying to wear this exploded buffalo check top from Old Navy, and pulled out one of my mainstay skirts to pair it with. Both outfits naturally went against a backdrop that will forever be one of our favorites – it’s as Texas as you can get, and the smell of Tex-Mex from the restaurant this wall calls home only embedded into our hearts even more.
Whether you’re rocking cowboy hats and your favorite pair of boots, or your tastes are a little more modern, the DFW area is home to many fashion and lifestyle bloggers that showcase the wide array of tastes within the city. One of the OG’s of fashion blogging, Courtney Kerr, calls this city home and her blog is a map of what’s now and cool in the city. We’ll definitely be back to Dallas and can attest that this city is way too big to experience in a weekend.
