GOODBYE TEXAS

 

As I prepare for a very long trip I can't help but start to feel homesick already. Summer had only just started and I was enjoying myself at home.

I love waking up early and having tea in bed with a book.
It's even nicer when my puppies join me.

Shelley

Staci

We just planted our garden too! I hope that the July heat doesn't make them droopy while we're gone.
Anyway, after enjoying my last morning in Texas I headed into Dallas with my mom to grab some lunch and look around Forty Five Ten.

So much pretty Dries.

Mom's outfit today 

Her signature stack of silver, along with an Omega Seamaster men's watch. 

Her equestrian Givenchy ankle boots-mom and I both flipped for these. Worn with waxed Levi's jeans. 

 

I didn't get too dressed up today-wearing a thrifted lace shirt, Miu Miu skirt, and my beloved new Chanel bow-tie booties.

More pics….

 

Are there words for how incredibly sweet these shoes are? Nope. They're kind of punky and cheeky at the same time though. I need to do a post about these shoes! I couldn't stop staring at my feet today.

Had a tasty lunch at the T Room at Forty Five Ten.
(Good iced tea is another thing I'll miss when I'm in Tokyo. Does anybody love iced tea like Texans do?)

My panini with brie and cranberries.

Mom's pear salad, tortilla, and vegetable panini.

 

After lunch we stopped at Grange Hall-while I was there I snapped a picture of these pretty flowers inside the store.

If you live near Dallas/in Dallas and haven't visited Grange Hall yet, you have to. It's like a very morbid and beautiful apothecary…not to mention they carry Natalia Brilli (!)

I snapped this picture of an old grain silo on our way into town. 
It reminded me of japanese boro textiles.

BORO

I'm going to miss seeing sights like this when I'm in Tokyo…I love the deserted landscapes of Texas. I want to take a road trip to Marfa when I get back from Tokyo!

Better start packing. I'm going to spend three days in Los Angeles with my family and then on Wednesday my mom and I are flying to Tokyo. We'll come back to Texas July 10th. 
I already miss my dogs so much. It's so hard to leave them. But I'm so excited I can barely stand it!

    One more thing Jane, when you fly to Tokyo make sure to get at least 6 hrs of sleep on the plane because the jetlag really gets to you when you land and when you get back to the United States. When I went to China I almost fell asleep in my food from the plane ride

    Those shoes are insane in the best way. Are they from a recent season? They look like they could be vintage or new. Iced tea is my beverage of choice! In Japan I bet you can find my favorite, rose green. Enjoy your trip.

    Ooh I live in Tokyo (one of my homes), but I won’t be there when you visit. It would’ve been interesting if I’d bumped into you! Lovelovelove the white strappy shoes in the first pics, where are they from? And your camera, I’m interested to know what make and model : ) But I hate the booties, sorry, I find them really ugly even if they are Chanel. And a black bra under a sheer shirt – really? It’s not attractive.

    Since you are super rich and can afford to drop cash-ole on $1000 shoes, what charity work are you doing? It’s nice to spend but have you decided to give back to your surrounding poor communities? I mean its nice to be rich (well I guess its nice) but I don’t see what you are contributing, especially in these financially trying times.

    Enjoy every moment of your Tokyo adventure!

I mean the pictures show as you never had any scratches, scars, etc When I am wearing heels my feet sweal, I get scars and bleeding all the time. It doesn`t matter what my shoes are made from , they could be a 3 pound ones or 100 pound ones…

    And we in Norway, loves icead tea as much as you do, I think .
    One question: How do you afford all the clothes and shoes osv.? I am 15, and I do not have a chance to buy so many expensive stuff. Could you write a “story” about your wardrobe favorites, favorite stores and tell about when you started to interest for fashion and stuffs like that when you come back from Tokyo? I would love that!
    Thank you,

    —Certainly some of the comments are rude, but at the same time, blogging to thousands of people about the expensive shoes one buys, especially if you’re a teenager, invites the question. If you want complete privacy, don’t start a blog.
