Now that the season has changed, we are slowly transitioning our summer wardrobe into Fall. If you live in Europe you also have to physically pack away your summer clothes and make room for the next season (no real closets – just tiny wardrobes). It always makes me a bit sad to put away my Summer items as I love the warmer months. I love the freedom of being outside and the long summer days.
In defiance of Fall (probably the only girl who isn’t a fan of this season) and to get the most out of my summer wardrobe, I am trying to find creative ways to transition my typical “summer pieces” into this new season. In this post I am bringing new life to a summer dress, and showing you how you can transition a typical summer dresses into Fall. Especially, if you want to quickly add some Fall vibes to your wardrobe.
As we are officially into Fall now, I am sure you have heard a lot about the latest trends for this new season. If you are a fashion addict like myself then I bet you closely watched the runways of NYF, LFW, MFW, and PFW to mentally take notes of how you could recreate these trends in everyday life. As much as I wish life was a runway, you have to find ways to take these high fashion trend pieces and translate that into real life and your own personal style.
If you are feeling overwhelmed with all of the trends or just want a quick list of what is on trend right now, check out a previous blog post where I went over 10 key trends for this Fall and Winter season.
In this particular post, I am rocking two trends of the season that I think go together seamlessly: winter florals and white booties.
I’m just under 5ft 4 inches and have a short inseam – no #legsfordays over here!
Finding jeans that not only fit my body shape, are on trend, and that I actually like has always been a challenge for me. For years, I have dreaded going denim shopping because I knew I would try on over 30 pairs and either come out with one pair of jeans or walk out empty-handed. I found myself sticking to the same two pairs of jeans that worked for me, and not exploring any further since there clearly couldn’t be anything out there for me…or so I thought.
This summer I said enough was enough and I wanted to find denim that worked for my petite frame. I came away from the experience with a new favorite brand that I’m so excited to share with you.
When I was packing for a trip earlier this month (I went back home to Texas for two weeks in case you didn’t check out my Instagram), I started to think about what skincare and makeup products could I not live without. If I got stuck on my layover, what products would I consider necessary for me to feel some semblance of normality.
Then I realized, no matter how many different makeup and skincare products I have tried over the years, there are a select few items that I keep repurchasing, and will never find myself without. I take these items on every trip, and cannot complete a makeup look without them.
I wanted to share with you the products that I consider as must-haves in my collection.
I consider myself lucky to be from a city that takes their food seriously – and I mean seriously! Dallas has you covered on the whole food spectrum from fancy steak houses to backyard taco joints. You can have so many different food experiences in one city, and they are not just carbon copies planted next to each other.
This is especially true if you stick to the areas of Lakewood, Downtown, Uptown, Deep Ellum, and Trinity Groves.
I like variety in anything that I do. One day I will be in the mood to go to a chic lounge where they turn the lights down low and you listen to low tempo house music. The next day I just want to be casual and hit up my favorite hole-in-the wall tamale restaurant. Haven’t you heard the saying that variety is the spice of life? In this case, it literally is (you get the food reference, right?).

Do you ever dream about a mouthwatering street taco or the smell of chicken molé? Is that just me?! I guess when you’re from Texas and living in Switzerland, where this is no concept of proper Mexican food, you find yourself in this predicament often.
Whenever I am back home in Dallas, the first thing I say is that I want to eat so much Mexican food that I can’t eat anymore. Obviously, this never happens because I could eat Mexican food everyday. It is one of my favorite cuisines, and is much more varied than people realize.
Dallas has its fair share of upscale Mexican restaurants. But if you want the good stuff,the authentic stuff, then you have to be willing to step out of the traditional spots to find it.
