When in Dallas

by Abby Schiewe |

When in Dallas, one should visit Deep Ellum, have dinner at Reunion Tower, go to the original Neiman Marcus, at least pretend to be a Cowboys fan for the time being, and take some time on the Katy Trail.
Back in the day Katy Trail was just another railroad track. But in the 90's some locals suggested it be made into what it is today; it goes on for 3.5 miles through some of the nicest parts of Dallas and some choose to trek it by rollerblading, jogging, or like me- walking my favorite animal.
In delight of the warmer weather coming along, take your lunch break or your usual workout to Katy Trail and get yourself some vitamin D!

Leather Weather

by Abby Schiewe |

A leather jacket is essential for any wardrobe. So are black booties. And so is a denim shirt, or two. One of my favorite outfits is when I throw them all together! Black on black on black can be quite 'been there, done that', but you just can't go wrong when you add a little embellishments (like the chains on my boots). And leather doesn't always have to be black either; I've seen both red and white leather jackets that are to die for!
StyleCaster recommends pairing a leather jacket with a skirt or dress. Not only do I love that particular ensemble, but I'm also impatiently waiting for my next paycheck so I can invest in a gray turtleneck to put underneath! So, all of that being said: if you don't already have one of these coveted closet staples, it's time to invest.
PS: I encourage buying faux leather because animals are our friends. (:
Mine (purchased from Zara) is still in great condition after a little over a year and I wear it all the time!
