I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned before, but I am a true city girl at heart. A high rise with a door man and boutiques steps away, has always been my idea of the perfect home.
This is why I was a little more than apprehensive when my husband and I fell in love with (and purchased) a house in… wait for it… the suburbs! Serious questions began to arise. Would I be too far from my friends? Would we be able to find good eats, shopping and more importantly artistic inspiration?

Instead of letting these fears continuously swirl in my head, I threw on this Haute Hippie blazer and surveyed the area. To my surprise, our new neighborhood boasts 3 expansive hubs that could rival any high end shopping mall, an amazing designer outlet center; unique little boutiques and just about every type of cuisine you can imagine. As if that isn’t enough to squash my nervousness, I’m only 20 minutes from the office (with traffic) and 30-45 from the Uptown/Downtown Dallas areas.

What fears have you overcome lately? Did you figure out a way to look and feel stylish in the process?

Hope you’re crushing your Mondays!
