Striped Tobi Dress (only $22!) || Army Jacket || Briefcase || Boots || Necklace 

On Sunday, Matt & I headed to the Dallas Arboretum to grab some coffee and enjoy the weather. We went pretty early in the morning to beat the heat, so it was slightly chilly, which is my favorite weather to walk around in. 

I packed my light army jacket for the morning and once the heat rolled in, tied it around my waist, because to be honest, Matt refused to carry it around all day (don’t blame him). I’ve been wearing dresses non-stop this fall because it’s just too hot to wear anything else. 

But now that I’m in Texas, & it’s totally acceptable to wear cowboy boots, I’m literally obsessed. I’ve always been a fan of dresses & booties but dresses & cowboy boots are a whole new level. I feel like the girl from the Longest Ride, just me going on a date  with Matt in a cute pair of cowboy boots (yee-haw). 



I can’t stress how much I love the Dallas Arboretum, I spend Monday-Friday sitting at my desk, and being a little hermit. I sit down at 8:30am and just plug away till I meet Matt at 5:00pm; so having the Arboretum close has been a godsend. If I wrap up work early I’ll head to the park and just walk around and enjoy a snack.

It’s so easy to get in a bad mood from working inside all day, so if you are feeling blah, wah or just yuck; take a breather step outside and step away from it all. Whenever I’m feeling unmotivated I always head outside and just walk around, it’s a natural pick-me upper. 

I also usually get some of my best TCC ideas while walking around or people watching. I might see a girl pull off a cool style, that I’ll later try on the blog or eat a pumpkin spice muffin, beg the waitress for the recipe, and recreate on the blog.

If you are feeling stuck, unmotivated or just not 100%, I’m here to say that is okay and I’m right there with you. So on those days I go outside and disconnect to reconnect.

Let me know in the comments below, what you guys do to pick yourself up when you’re feeling not with it. xx A.


Thank you, Tobi, for sponsoring this post.

  3. Hi! I would love to see some cute wall decor. Some possibilities could include
    “Life is better in… (New England, CT, Cape Cod etc.)
    “There is No Place Like Home… (CT, Cape Cod, Watch Hill)
    As a college student, I have a sign that says Home Sweet Home, and lists my hometown and state (CT). It allows me to bring a little piece of home with me, wherever I go.

    I also love the unique mugs that have cute sayings and are personalized with different, and fun locations in the north!
