    My Favorite Things: Summer

    It’s time for another post about my favorite things! We’re at the beginning of the summer, and I’m sharing my top three obsessions for this season. Check out here for my previous favorite things! Favorite Links Top (here) Hat (here) YouTube (here) Athleta Mesh Top This navy top from Athleta is ADORABLE! It’s a recent purchase, and I can’t stop wearing it. I love the subtle detail of the mesh. Even though my skin is insanely pale (#vampire), this top isn’t too revealing. Major win! I’m guilty of always wearing the same things over and over again, namely, white tees. This top is a nice break from my usual, while still being basic…

    Summer Uniform: Plaid Shorts + Sweater

    Goodbye jeans and hello shorts! Dallas is notorious for the summer heat and humidity. To deal with it, I usually throw on a swing dress or T-shirt dress. That look has become my go-to.

    Mr. Rogers was right; it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood! When I was a freshman at SMU, I didn’t know any area outside of campus. However, when I stepped outside (JK I drove) the Park Cities, I got to see all of the different neighborhoods in Dallas. **Strongly resists inhaling my pastry OUTFIT DETAILS: Sweatshirt (love this one) Shorts (here) Shoes (here – reduced price!) Necklace (here) Sunglasses (here) Dallas has so many distinctive neighborhoods, each providing different stores, eateries, coffee shops (woot woot!) and aesthetics.

    Fitting in Fitness

    Fitness? You mean “fit-ness pizza into my mouth?!” I absolutely love working out. In short, it’s consistent “me time” that’s uninterrupted, fun, and challenging. I control what happens during my workout, which pushes me to try as hard as I can. It might sound cliche, but it’s true. Here are some of my favorite workouts that keep me going: My Fave Ways to Move: Spin Class Really anyone who’s met me knows I’m crazy about spin classes! I’ve been going for three years now, and can easily say it’s my favorite workout. I hop on the bike at Lync Cycling and love every second of it. Pushes, tapbacks, and hair flips;…
