Happy hump day! Thankful that we’re halfway through the week and that I’m getting to explore new parts of Dallas. Last weekend, I made my way down to Austin with one of my besties. We swam in the Barton Springs pool, a naturally cool spring that’s home to an endangered salamander. If you want to see the pool, take a look at my Instagram! After the cool springs, we made our way to a Tex-Mex place for some chips and very spicy salsa! Did I mention how much I love this state?
In addition to the great food, I’m loving the wonderful sunshine! I love hot weather and sunny days not only for my mood, but also my hair! I’ve never been one to highlight or dye my hair because I want it to stay healthy for as long as possible. The sun has been my best friend in creating natural highlights!
Besides my hair, I figure we should talk about my outfit! This darling dress doubles as a great sundress! I wore it to the pool and then to lunch right after. My boyfriend’s mom got it for me when we went out shopping one day and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. It’s from a boutique called Altar’d State.
Upon leaving lunch, we went downtown and explored a bit. We came across this beautiful wall mural near Congress Avenue. Being girls always in search of the perfect place for a selfie, we couldn’t help but stop and take a few photos. For me, street art is either really strange or really pretty like this particular one. The blooming cactus is so vibrant and makes the street come alive! I certainly enjoyed visiting Austin but Dallas is quickly becoming my home.
