I Feel Pretty | In Dallas

Bragging rights go to the first person who can tell me where this photo was taken.

Hint:  If you’re not old enough to remember the original Ewing family, then maybe Jesse Metcalf and Josh Henderson will clue you in?



That’s right, it’s Southfork Ranch, the mythical home of the Dallas TV series, both the original and the reboot.

Ironically Southfork Ranch isn’t even in Dallas.  It’s in a small town called Parker, about 25 miles north of downtown Dallas and two miles from where I live.

What does Southfork Ranch have to do with today’s outfit?  Nothing.  But it was fun to hang out and take some photos there.

  • Southfolk Ranch from DALLAS! I’m an old timer, this scene look familiar! Looking fabulous in that gorgeous pair of pants!


  • I have so much to say about today’s post! First of all, the fact that your outfit is color-coordinated with the ranch and landscaping is pretty awesome! The photos are gorgeous!! I really want to go visit the ranch now! Also, I feel like I should be watching Dallas. I’m too young to remember the original, but I do have a slight connection to it. My mom said she named me after hearing the name Jenna on Dallas!

  • WOW! Those pants are AMAZING. I’m really into these kinds of colors this year.

  • Uhm a new addict of Dallas, mostly for the yummy man candy! Great outfit! 🙂

  • Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! I am your newest follower. My husband and I watch Dallas every week, so I recognized it immediately. His brother lives outside of Dallas, so we will have to go and visit it next time we are down there. Love your style!

  • You have really great taste. Just wait til I get back into my pre-pregnancy body after I have this kid! It costs way too much to have a separate adorable wardrobe 🙂

    Love those pants. Would have guessed Loft and not Gap! Go Gap!

  • I almost bought those pants the other day and now I’m thinking I need to go back for them! Such a fun, spring look! Looks like Southfork Ranch, just down the road! I’m guessing we don’t live too far from one another.

  • You’re really rocking those patterned pants!! That’s one style I haven’t been brave enough to try yet.

  • love the look and i knew the location 🙂

  • Those pants are gorgeous! I’m trying to envision them with a tunic, because I hate wearing my shirt inside my pants, but I love them too much to let them go 🙂
