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!

My 21st Birthday + XOXO Dining Room Review

Last month I celebrated my 21st birthday at one of the most Instagramable restaurants in Dallas! If I were a restaurant, I'd definitely be XOXO Dining Room. From the pink building, to the picture-worthy garden, to the DJ's music selection, it could not have been a more perfect place to celebrate my 21st.

Trend Tracking: Cardigans

1  // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 Sweater cardigans are a hot item at the moment. They are most popularly worn buttoned up as a shirt but are also often seen paired with a solid turtle neck and layered necklaces. I have rounded up nine cardigans I love, all at different price ranges. One thing I love about this trend is the variety. I have some cardigans, like the ones I linked above that I purchased at boutiques and I have others that were my grandma's. I love to wear cardigans with straight leg jeans and booties or fashion sneakers.  shop this cardigan Shilo
