Shopping List: Time to Fiesta!

Summer is full of opportunities to fiesta….AKA opportunities to wear this fun pom pom skirt from Adeline! One major opportunity to unwind after work is Adeline’s grand reopening party coming up on August 10 from 6-8pm! My favorite Dallas boutique is moving just a few doors down from its current location and will be unveiling a whole new experience and even more brands…in style, of course!

Give me all the pom poms!

Adeline is offering all guests 15% off all purchases, along with exclusive giveaways, complimentary cocktails, and braids by new local business Mermaid Braid Bar! Because what’s better than a braid to keep you cool on a 90+ degree summer day in Dallas? Not much, and I already mentioned cocktails.

This party also happens to be the perfect pregame for a dinner at newly opened Hudson House, also conveniently located on Lovers Lane. Lots of opportunities for pineapple-themed snaps (and a menu that’s easy to fall in love with). OR go to Chip’s and have a burger and fries. Your call!

Shopping List: Spring Frosé Date

Time for the first Shopping List post in a minute! You guys know I love a good frosé, and The Standard Pour’s happy hour special hit the spot last week. Also, I’ve been dying to go check out the adorable new rewardStyle mural. The outfit I’m featuring today features a bodysuit from Adeline. Yes, a bodysuit. Your summer outfits just got WAY easier.

Adeline Bodysuit- The Liberty List

This ruffle bodysuit also comes in a variety of colors! I decided to go with my fave (black, neutral).

Bodysuits are seriously bringing me back to my ballet days…I paired this one with a J. Crew skirt and pair of leopard sandals. Throw on a fun pair of earrings like these tassel hoops I picked up at FleaStyle and you’ve got a winning outfit. Check out the other bodysuit colors here.

Shopping List: Olive

PSA: olive just might be the new navy, you guys. While I love my neutrals, I’m serious when I say I am really feeling this color for fall. If you’re not so much, don’t worry. Adeline also carries the top I’m featuring in this post in blue! AND it’s under $50. Score!

Location: Stirr in Deep Ellum.

G and I decided to use Stirr as a backdrop for this installment of Shopping List. Talk about gorgeous views of downtown!

Triple Dip Party

In order for you to truly understand how excited I am about this post, you must realize how much I LOVE dips. And chips. It’s the one snack I can’t, and won’t, say no to. Ever.

Chipotle Salsa

So today I present to you…not one, not two, but THREE of my favorite dip recipes. I whipped a few of these up for my bachelorette party last weekend and we went to town on them. (Another great thing about dips = they are super easy to put together)! The tomatillo avocado salsa is an old favorite, but the chipotle salsa is a new obsession. And to cool things down, I’m throwing in a Tzatziki dip. Because why not? All of this deliciousness is coming to you straight from What’s Gaby Cooking!

Shopping List: TX Happy Hour

It’s possible that I’ve found my new favorite Dallas happy hour patio in Rodeo Goat.

So when G and I were discussing the venue for our next Shopping List excursion and photo shoot, Rodeo Goat was a natural fit. The patio is huge, partially covered and equipped with fans – which is oh so important in the Texas heat. It’s the home of the best veggie burger I’ve had in Dallas to-date and the “Dapper Don,” a cocktail made with Deep Eddy Peach Vodka, Cointreau, lime and honey. We had a few.

Also, milkshakes. A very necessary prop. Flavor details included below.

This Shopping List look is perfect for a hot Texas happy hour – wherever you’re sipping!

Five Prime Patios for Spring Happy Hours

Spring has sprung and I am loving it! In addition to the joy that comes along with breaking out my spring wardrobe,  I’m finally able to indulge in one of my all time favorite activities: patio happy hours.

It’s important to note that in Dallas, there are really only a few months out of the year (typically in spring and fall) that patio weather is upon us. Once the summer heat rolls around, patios are no longer fun and I’ll take my drink and cheese board at a sheltered indoor table, thank you very much.

Without further ado, here are the top five patio situations that I’m really feeling right now. Make sure you take your Claritin.
