What's In My Bag: Dallas BIRTHDAY Weekend Edition!

By the time you read this, I'll be in Texas!

I flew into Dallas last night, just in time for my bestie Rebecca G. Conroy's birthday, which is today! We have lots planned, including a trip to Drybar (obviously), a few delicious meals, a dessert birthday party, and a quick trip to Austin with our pal Robley :) I'm only here through Sunday so it's a quick trip but I couldn't miss the chance to celebrate with her!

It is FREEZING in Texas so I packed many warm layers in my carry-on... here's a little sneak peek of what's in my bag:

ONE:
I bought this top at the Rachel Pally sample sale last weekend - it's probably the most comfortable thing in the world. Mine is burgundy & black stripes but I love it so much I may need to go pick it up in basic black. It's seriously the perfect top - it looks great both closed with a tie belt, or open as a shawl cardigan. LOVE.

TWO:
If you follow my Instagram (@queenjord), you might have seen last week that my office does Secret Santa, and my coworker Natalie got me this amazing Baublebar "Rainbow Starlite" bib necklace for my gift!!! Hands down, I got the best present out of everyone :) it could not be cuter or more sparkly!

THREE:
I have this Old Navy blouse in this nude snakeskin as well as a pretty striped mint color - they are really great basics, lightweight and so comfortable. They're on sale now - go get one (or four. I won't judge)!


FOUR:
I packed these a couple weeks ago for my trip to NY and showed you guys - lately I haven't been going anywhere without my go-to Zara booties, which are suede with rhinestoned/studded heels! They are long gone on their website, but these cute booties are similar if you want to pick up your own pair :)

FIVE:
My favorite pair of earrings. Ram bought these for me for our first Hanukkah together a few years ago and I rarely go on a trip without them. The shape is so unique, they're under $100, and they come in gold, rose gold, and silver - I just love them.



SIX:
This adorable J.Crew sweater was my sister's Hanukkah gift to me! I love the cozy knit and bright colors. Good one, Bay. It's sold out on jcrew.com but still available on Net-a-Porter if you're interested.


SEVEN:
Speaking of my sister... she picked out this lipstick for both of us while we were in Chicago - I didn't even get a say, she just bought it and put it on me... and of course, I love it. It's NARS Damage and it's the perfect deep pinkish red, totally natural for day and also really nice at night.

EIGHT & NINE:
These two little items are actually birthday presents for one Miss RGC :) as a fellow lover of glittery things and fancy nail polish, I couldn't resist getting her this adorable Deborah Lippmann set. And yes, even though we graduated college nearly SEVEN YEARS AGO (crap), we STILL love filling our houses with giraffe tchotchkes (our sorority mascot!). This little jewelry holder from Anthropologie is going to make her so happy, I just know it :)
