H&M Dress

Shop the look:

You probably can’t guess it by looking at them, but I’m actually in Dallas, Texas in these photos. I spent the weekend there for a convention for my husband’s company…and let’s just say Texas was not having the nicest weather while we were there! It rained nonstop, which according to the news program I watched, was the first rain Texas had in over a month. Go figure! Haha.

It mercifully stopped raining for 2 1/2 minutes so we could take these photos! (Seriously, it was a torrential downpour just seconds after we stopped taking photos!) Given the volatile weather, we just ran outside the hotel quickly to take these pictures – sorry for the lack of a background. I swear Dallas is more exciting than this, and I’ll do a separate post on that.

But anyways, let’s talk about my outfit for a second. This dress from H&M has become my go-to dress for work functions, because it’s conservative but still cute. It’s also fantastic for traveling, because I can throw it in my bag and it doesn’t wrinkle. This dress does have sleeves, but I had put my jacket on just because I couldn’t decide if I was warm or cold (thanks to a flu bug I had caught!), and this was the only jacket I had packed for this trip. I do like the way it looked with the whole outfit, though! It really it gave it a different feel, and I liked that the gold zippers matched my heels and jewelry.

Machi Footwear heels

I was so excited I was finally able to wear my new heels from Machi Footwear! How awesome are these shoes, seriously? I love the gold tips and the tassels! I will admit though, I struggle to walk in these heels a bit. They are quite a bit taller than my other heels, and they also run small. If you decide to buy them for yourself, I would go a whole size up (or at least a half size). And if you would like a pair of Machi shoes for free, this is the last week they are running their Fall Style Giveaway! Click here to check out the rules, and be sure to enter! 🙂

Reunion Tower
Reunion Tower in Dallas, Texas.

I had worn this outfit for a dinner my husband’s company had inside Reunion Tower! This was such a cool opportunity, and we quite literally felt like we were “on top of the world.” However, I wasn’t feeling the greatest…and the top of Reunion Tower slowly rotates to give you a full view of the city. Which, again, is super cool…unless you’re not feeling well. Being that high in the air, and spinning, while not feeling well, is a very interesting combination! Haha. Between the rainy weather and feeling a bit under the weather, the trip to Dallas didn’t quite go as planned. I will definitely have to return for the full Dallas experience!

  1. I was just gonna say – brilliant styling with the jacket and the dress, it looks so edgy and cool. So maybe it was good that you couldn’t decide if you were hot or cold. However, I’m really sorry you didn’t feel well. At least you looked amazing 😉
    Much love,

  2. Oh wow, this dress is beautiful! I love the pattern on it! The jacket you added is so crisp.

  4. H&M’s got some really great dresses, doesn’t it?? I have a dress from there that also became my go-to for all kinds of things for a lot of the same reasons! And those shoes are to die for! I love all the details, especially those gold tips. I hope you’re feeling better! You would never guess you weren’t feeling well by these pictures!

  6. The spinning tower sounds really cool. There used to be one in my city but I never got to go to it. I love the gold on the heels.

  7. Those shoes are so cute! I would love to wear more heels at work, but I’m on my feet so much I don’t think I’d last, haha.


    1. Thank you so much, Mel! And I can tell you your feet would most definitely not last in these heels while at work. Haha. But Machi does have some super cute flats as well!

  8. As always – your outfit is beautiful! those shoes! So stunning! Your red hair is also still awesome 🙂

    I’ve never been to Dallas but I have a lot of friends there since I went to college in Arkansas and a lot of texans went there. Maybe I’ll take a visit sometime!

    1. Aw thank you so much, Amanda! Aren’t these heels awesome? They come in a couple different colors, too. Glad you like the red hair too! 🙂 I did see the grassy knoll, however, the museum at the school depository building is also on my last of things to do when I return. 🙂
