Dallas Apartment Decor Update

By now, most of you know we moved to Dallas. Reading each of your comments about our new home is just heartwarming. Moving into this stunning apartment still feels like a whirlwind. Especially with Vietnamese New Year being right after our move-in date, things have been so hectic to make sure we get our place clean and settled properly. We wouldn’t want to ring in the new Lunar New Year in a bad way! While our home is far from finished, I want to share an apartment decor update with y’all. This way you can see the space as it comes together and see our process. Clearly, I’m no expert but I love to add things as I feel they’re needed. Plus, I believe keeping an open mind is key. Being in this apartment has taught us a few things when it comes to layout and design.

The Spring Dress You Can Wear Anywhere

If you’re looking to shop for spring, look no further. This is the spring dress you can wear anywhere and it’s only $68. Whether you’re heading out for brunch, dinner date, even work, this dress is appropriate. While it has a v-neck it’s not too low. The fun playful feel of the knot and how the fabric moves oozes the spirit of spring. I absolutely love the yellow color, which is actually more of a sunshine yellow and less of marigold as portrayed on the site. Plus, I love how a different pair of shoes can really make the feel of this spring dress different. I’m wearing them with some of my favorite heels but a pair of fun flats or even sneakers would change the look. One aspect I love about this dress is long sleeves. They make this dress so chic and the overall length of the dress is just right. Not too long or too short. On my 5’3 frame, it hits just a few inches above my knee.

Designing A Top for Gibson x International Women’s Day Collection

Happy FriYay! I have some huge news to share with y’all and I’m beyond excited! A dream of mine for years is coming true: designing a top for Gibson x International Women’s Day collection! The collection launches March 8 on International Women’s Day and is available at Nordstrom. The top I’m designing is versatile so it’ll be great for both work and the weekend. I can easily see myself restyling it multiple times for different settings and I know you will, too! It comes in two colors and I can’t wait to share a sneak peek with you once the final samples are complete! Being able to share the process with y’all is very exciting and I can’t wait to share what’s next. One reason I love the top I’m designing in particular is its versatility. You’ll be flattering on so many different women. Plus, Gibson offers sizes XXS Petite to XXXL.

Valentine’s Day Date and Gift Ideas

Buying a gift for the man in your life can be quite difficult. Every man is different with different tastes and preferences. Johnny isn’t too picky, but I enlisted his help. In this post, we are sharing some Valentine’s Day date and gift ideas to help you (and him) plan your perfect day for this holiday. It doesn’t have to be stressful. Remember, this holiday is about expressing your love to another person. A gift doesn’t have to be grand or expensive. A thoughtful, meaningful gift or experience could mean the world to your significant other.

Little Pink Skort for a Valentine’s Day Outfit Idea

I can’t believe Valentine’s Day is around the corner! While Johnny and I don’t really celebrate as far as gifts or date night, it is nice to have a day dedicated to love. We believe going the extra mile or putting in effort shouldn’t be confined to a holiday. For example, if I want to get Johnny something nice, I’ll just get it and give it to him. I don’t have to wait for a holiday or a reason to show him I love him. Same goes for him. We’re not big on holidays for gift giving and we are very upfront with our gifts and things we want. That said, I know many people celebrate, so I want to share a fun Valentine’s Day Outfit Idea you can wear again later on in the season.
