A Day at Texas Tulips


It's officially spring time here in Dallas and I am thriving in this weather! Last week, before we were asked to self quarantine, McCray and I took a day trip to Pilot Point to visit Texas Tulips and had the best time! If you get the opportunity, I highly recommend going with your friends.

When you walk in the gate there is a station where you can pick out your flower basket- how cute!

What is the price like?
The entry fee at Texas Tulips is $5 per person (the price is the same for kids) and there is a field to park in with free parking.


 Can you pick the tulips?
Yes! You get a basket once you come in the gate and you can pick all the tulips you want. It is $2.50 per tulip and they wrap them before you leave in a tissue paper color of your choice and put them in gel that will preserve them until you get home.




 What facilities are available at the field?
There is a concession stand where you can grab a snack and drink and picnic tables where you can enjoy them. There are also a few restrooms (we were disappointed to discover that they are just porta potties) by the entrance to the field.



When are the open?
They are open Monday-Sunday 10:00 am-8:00 pm from mid February to the end of March/early April.




Are pictures allowed?
Yes pictures of all kinds are allowed. We brought my camera and had so much fun taking pictures all day. However, if you are planning to bring a professional photographer for wedding, senior, or family pictures etc. there is a $25 day pass you must purchase. 



What do you recommend I bring?
Bring a camera! The flowers make the perfect backdrop/prop for fun pictures. I also recommend sunglasses and sunscreen. There was a really nice breeze the whole time we were there but one thing I didn't think about was the sun burn I would suffer once we left, I'm still a little red!


Anything else I should know before going?
The paths through the field are dirt so if you're going right after a storm it will be very muddy so rain boots might be a good idea!


Happy Spring!

Trend Tracking: Western T Shirts

Western and country style has been emerging more within the trendy side of the fashion world recently. Being from Texas, I think it's kind of fun.  Along with bright colored cowboy boots and cow print, you can find many popular fashion influencers wearing western-inspired graphic tees. Today I have rounded up some of my favorites that are all under $40.   YeeHaw T Shirt Wrangler T Shirt //  Cowboy T Shirt //  Cowgirl T Shirt //  Stay Wild T Shirt //  Let's Go Girls T Shirt //  Wild West T Shirt Shilo

Exciting Life Updates!

 I just realized I left my readers out of the loop on some of the life changes I have made recently that will be taking effect starting next week actually, so I thought I would share a few updates today. 

Daily Look Vol. 2

  I've been challenging myself to style old pieces from my closet in new ways rather than buying as many new clothes as I normally would during the summer and I'm having so much fun with it!

Daisy Darling Top

I fell in love with this top as soon as I saw it in The Impeccable Pig. The color, the gingham, and the embroidered daisies are too cute!
