(Pardon the weird light patterns on my legs.)
While I was in Dallas, I definitely wanted to explore a few of the local shops instead of just sticking to the mall. While Northpark Mall is the largest, most luxurious retail emporium I've ever seen, I prefer going off the beaten path for a few special finds. Luckily, the Knox-Henderson area had some wonderfully cute shops including We Are 1976 (the shop where all the circus posters are pictured above) and Milk & Honey. While the stores offer a completely different inventory, I was happy that they were right next to each other so that I could shop for everything from stationary to accessories to cute clothing in one swoop. Below is a little peek at what I scored. The bow belt and the arrow necklace are both finds from the Anthropologie in Highland Park Village.

I have to admit, finding all the cute boutiques and shops when I travel is one of my favorite part of the experience. I know that there's a lot more to do and trust me, we did a lot while in Dallas. But getting to interact with small business owners is so special for me. I've come back with a renewed appreciation for all things local and unique.
