A Walk Around the Pond

Hello again all! I hope you are having a fabulous week! My family was in town over the weekend and it was so nice to spend some quality time with them. My brother has been living in San Fransisco for the past couple of months so it was really great to have him in the Big D. Also, I was so thankful I was able to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom! We took her out to my new favorite Dallas restaurant, Eureka, and had such a lovely brunch. Growing up, Mother's Day was really the only day of the year we would go out for breakfast. Even if I am a more frequent-bruncher these days, I love that this childhood tradition lives on. The Hubs and I also visited Houston last weekend and saw both of our parents, so May has been a family filled month so far and I love it! This outfit is from my time in Houston. My mom and I went out for iced tea and a nice walk around the lake in the neighborhood. I wore this classic striped shirt dress from Ralph Lauren Polo and paired it with a simple belt, my favorite wedges, and a panama hat. I love how versatile this dress is. It is the perfect outfit for a simple spring stroll, day at the office, and can even be dressed up for church or a friendly get-together. I personally love to belt it, but it has such a nice shape to it that the belt is not a necessity. The fit-and-flare silhouette is flattering on almost every body type. The dress makes me feel good, and that is all I really want from my clothes! I hope you enjoy this classic look and it inspires you to add a staple shirt dress to your wardrobe!
