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.
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.
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.
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!
