A Dallas Gem
Earlier this week I got the chance to meet another Influencer from the Dallas area. We decided to meet at a hip and gorgeous cafe by the name of Magnolias Sous Le Pont. This was my second time at this location, so I knew it would be the perfect place to meet and take a few blog pics. Upon walking in, I instantly noticed the aroma of amazing coffee. By the way, this is torture for someone who is breastfeeding and could desperately use some caffeine. I went ahead and settled for a refreshing sparkler instead–a special this week, along with an AMAZING almond croissant. It was a pretty mild day in Dallas, so we sat on the gorgeous patio to enjoy the setting. Something interesting was that we witnessed multiple customers take photos of the cafe itself simply because of its exterior beauty. It’s turquoise paneled walls, windows, and marble patio tables all make this cafe a popular destination for coffee drinkers who can appreciate a good selfie, bloggers (guilty as charged), photographers and local artists.
The Real Dallas Gem
Back to my blogger friend… This gorgeous being who goes by the Instagram name of @yourbrandmaven suggested meeting up just because we constantly go back and forth on social media, both live in Dallas, and have a common goal with blogging. When it comes to social media, it’s easy to associate people with this idea of perfection–especially with Instagram. Well in the case of my sweet friend, I actually left feeling like she was even more perfect. She has this genuine spirit along with a charming personality. On top of all this, she is simply gorgeous. After exchanging blogger goals, I found she aims to spread the word about brands that give back. Pretty awesome right?
After talking as if we’ve been friends for years, I got the chance to take pics before this quiet little Dallas gem. My professional photographer, AKA, my oldest daughter Sisi, took pictures along the street of N. Harwood and we enjoyed the rest of our summer evening strolling the area.
What I Wore
I wore my favorite dress of the summer so far–a Who What Wear striped button down sundress (breastfeeding compatible thank you very much), complete with pockets. If you’re new to my blog, just letting you know now that I’m a sucker for a dress with pockets. I found this beauty at my local Super Target, but I know some cities don’t have Super Targets or they’re just always sold out, so online is definitely the way to go. I wore this look 3 different ways–more dressy with nude block heels, street fashion casual with my Kate Spade Keds and amazing FashionAble leather crossbody tote, and finally, more everyday casual with my Tory Burch Miller flip flops via Nordstrom and denim jacket from J. Crew.
If you have the opportunity, check out both of these amazing gems (@yourbrandmaven and @magnoliasdallas)–I promise you won’t regret it. See my ‘Shop the Post’ below for direct links to all of the ways I wore this beautiful sundress.
Here’s to a beautiful Thursday!
