My Favorite Activities for Summer in Texas

First off, shout out to Tobi for hooking me up with this stunner of an off-the-shoulder bell-sleeved dress! It’s soooo gorgeous – the smocked detail makes it perfect for day while the silhouette makes it ideal for night too!

The Dallas Zoo

Yesterday, I had the [totally awesome] opportunity to check out the Dallas Zoo for the very first time (*cough cough* even though I moved here nearly three years ago). My friend and I received a private tour of the zoo and got the inside scoop on all of the adorable animals… including the baby chimpanzee which was seriously the cutest. ever.

Unfortunately, our tour had to be cut short due to the dreadful weather… but I will definitely be coming back to see more of the zoo soon (and to feed a giraffe!!).
