WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FITNESS STUDIO IN DALLAS? My favorite fitness studio in Dallas is actually an outdoor trail that goes all over the city. It’s the Katy Trail, and it cuts through parks, neighborhoods, shops, lakes, and more. It’s a perfect spot for outdoor fitness as you’re constantly surrounded by something new. That makes running more fun in my opinion!
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO SPEND THE WEEKEND IN DALLAS? There are some staples you’ve got to see. I’d recommend the Dallas Farmers Market in downtown Dallas, the Dallas Arboretum by White Rock Lake, and for food, the Truck Yard in Lower Greenville. And definitely catch some live music at The Rustic in Uptown. You’ll find true Dallas vibes in each of these places!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WEEKEND STYLE?: Comfy, casual, and cute! Also- pretty plain in terms of color. Small patterns don’t show up very well on camera and often clash with the background wherever I am, so sticking to neutrals, solids, or big prints helps make photos look good for my blog. HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR KNITS SNAG-FREE? The one issue I always have with knits is my engagement ring getting caught in the cables. I’ve learned to turn the ring into my palm, make a fist over it, and then slide into my knits. It’s a simple trick, but it definitely works!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO TRAVEL TO? My favorite place has been Rwanda. Not only is the country stunning (it’s known as The Land of A Thousand Hills and lives up to its name), but my husband and I sponsor a little girl who lives there. We got to visit her recently and she stole our hearts! The scenery is breathtaking as well- you have the African savanna on the east, gorilla trekking in the mountains up north, and a huge lake on the western border. WHAT ARE YOUR TIPS FOR A CHIC AND COMFORTABLE AIRPORT STYLE? Airports are the perfect spot to rock the athleisure trend. Leggings and a cute top are always great for airports and let you move freely when airplanes do not! I also always get cold on planes, so I definitely want to be both warm and comfortable.
