This summer heat has been unbearable, is anyone else with me on that one? (Yes, I know it just begun, it’s not even August yet.) I’m just disappointed… I am an Outdoorsy girl. I love being outside, taking walks at the lake, runs on the trail, hiking at nature reserves, exploring the Farmers Market, I am all for it. BUT this summer. Yeah, no, not happening. I don’t like to feel like I’m being hugged by the sun. I’m waiting for Fall. I am SO excited to layer up and feel chilly and get the chance to snuggle and be comfortable. The Summer and I are NOT friends this time around. Honestly, part of the reason for that is because I almost passed out a few weeks ago and it was the heats fault. (DRINK WATER PEOPLE) So now obviously, I just think the heat’s out to damage my sweet soul. (Despite how much water I chug.) I think I’ll just stay indoors this summer. There’s plenty to do indoors, right?
For anyone dreading being outside this summer. Here’s a list of some cool and Artsy places to go to in the Dallas Ft. Worth area that are INDOORS and that won’t kill your summer high!
The MAYA Hidden Worlds Revealed is on display until September 4! (Explore the social, natural, and spiritual realms of the Maya – past and present – known for their monumental architecture, distinctive art, and intricate knowledge of astronomy and time.)
Art museums are my favorite go-to places. And general admission is free at the DMA! If you want to see a special exhibition its $16, but it’s worth it. I’m so ready to see the Iris Van Herpin: Transforming Fashion Exhibit. GUYS, I LOVE Fashion Exhibits. I literally traveled to New York City in September 2015 just to see the MET Gala China Through the Looking Glass exhibit. (It was magical!!!)
Aghh “the Art of shopping.” Fashion AND Art. Northpark mall is an Art gallery, I love it. I’ve grown up going to this mall, so It is wonderful seeing how it has changed so much throughout the years. You don’t have to go to the mall and spend money even tho that’s what everyone goes to do. The mall has a collection of works of art displayed beautifully throughout. I have walked through just to purposely see the new installments. And Northpark does not want you to miss checking out these pieces. They even have a Northpark Center Art Tour and Map available on their website! Download it and go get inspired!
And of course, you can also go to their AMC and watch a movie. (They even have a bar, so grab your fruity summer cocktails or your whiskey and water.)
AND for my Fashion lovers, these are a few photos of moi in a outfit that screams summertime. Dresses and Sneakers? Comfy! This light blue striped peplum dress from Zara was paired with my bright yellow converse and Kate Spade Watermelon Clutch. I love giving dresses that fun, casual vibe by pairing them with bright sneakers. I felt relaxed but I also felt quite lovely, especially when my clutch is shaped like a fruit! So, go dress like Summer, but if you want, do your best to avoid the unnecessary hot, outside activities.
