fort worth weekend getaway!

it seems so weird going on vacation so close to home. it also seems weird that i’ve never really been to fort worth because it is so close to home. i love exploring my own state. it’s crazy all the things you can do and see in texas!
( that’s why we’re the best. 😉 )
so me and the boyfriend went down to ft. worth to meet up with some of his family and have a fun little getaway weekend.
we decided to take amtrak train from okc down to the stockyards (how fun does that sound) instead of driving, so i thought i’d take some cute pics because it’s not everyday that you’re on a train.sidenote: trains have awful lighting, so ya get whatcha get. lol

a little blurb on my amtrak experience:
taking the train is relatively cheap + a student discount! what what?!
it was great because neither one of us had to worry about driving or traffic or car troubles.
the boarding process is insanely easy, you get two checked bags + 2 carry ons, there’s a bar cart, oh and did i mention SO MUCH LEG ROOM?! all my tall gals will understand. 🙂

we were literally in ft. worth for about 30 hours, so the trip was short. we went out on saturday night in the stockyards and got to prance around sundance square for a few hours on sunday before our train left.
i’ve been collecting a list of must see ft. worth places from chronicles of frivolity. i was lowkey really hoping to run into katey that weekend….LOVE HER. there’s so much to do in ft. worth, so needless to say, i’ll be back for some more exploring soon.

ps: shout out to my amazing man for being my photographer for the weekend. you rock. 😛
(and you’re also being recruited for next time. love you!)

new york lookbook.

y’all had to see this coming. haha
hello, lovebugs!!
i’ve been back from the big apple (does anyone know why it’s called that? let me know.) for a couple weeks now, and i wish i could just sit here and write a novel about the whole trip. it was so so so much fun getting to run around my favorite city with 6 of my favorite gal pals.
if you’ve never gone on a vacation (this trip wasn’t a vacation at all, but i’d feel too grown up to refer to it as a business trip.) with a best friend or 6, you should. it will make your experience ten times better, you’ll form incredible bonds and make unforgettable memories.
so shoutout to my dhm sistas. y’all rock my socks. <3
here’s a collection of looks from my past week in new york!
please don’t mind the on-the-go iphone shots or my ratty converse. a girl’s gotta be able to walk blocks and not get blisters.
i loved some of these looks so much, but unfortunately didn’t get to do full shoots for them. so you might be seeing a full post on a couple of them in the upcoming weeks!

saying that this trip up to new york was a blast would be an understatement.
i’ll have a post up next week sharing more about my trip, but for today i wanted to share all of my looks (as well as where to buy pieces or similar ones) with you!
i literally CANNOT wait to tell y’all more about this study trip!!! eeek!!
