I recently stumbled upon a dynamic Dallas duo – Bradley and Alison of the hip, haute blog, Luella & June.
These young women grew up in Dallas and have been friends since the 7th grade. While rooming together at the University of Texas at Austin (Go Longhorns!), they found they also loved reading blogs and thought it would be fun to create one of their own. And, so Luella & June was born, named after Alison’s grandmother, Luella June.
Since they are obviously in the know, I asked if they would give me their best tips for my upcoming trip to Dallas. I usually take my young sons to visit family and friends each March and thought that we could use some fresh ideas to make the most of this visit.
I love what they came up with and thought I would share it with all of you!
There’s no place like home….don’t you agree?! What’s your hometown?

Looks like a fun place to get some stylish tips and will be reading more of Luella & June! Love that they mention Javier's – one of our most favorite places to dine in Dallas!
I think I could be friends with these gals…love their descriptions! I've never been to Dallas, but I'll have to store this "valuable" insider information for a future trip. Have a wonderful trip!
Amazingly stylish women obviously! Love their inspiration boards! xo
They certainly look like a dynamic – and fun – duo!! Looks like they've given you some great picks – and I even love how they designed their little Dallas Favorites page for you

Such lovely ladies, and a fabulous list. Looks like it will be a fun trip. It's been about a decade since I've been to Dallas for any reason other than to visit a Nordstrom store, but I had a terrific time when was there to play!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Dallas in wonderland for sure! Thanks for the intro to this fab pair and their blog…I have never been to Texas, but I think, based on knowing you, and what I see here, it would be my kind of town…jealous of this trip!

The girls blog and inspiration board for Dallas look fantastic! So much fun. Thanks for sharing their existence. Going to check out their blog now! Hope your visit will be as great as their tips sounds.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE says
Oh I'll definitely be checking them out! And I'm going to bookmark this for my next Dallas trip 🙂
My hometown is NYC. Well it's actually a town on Long Island but I've been living in NYC for 21 years now…longer than I lived in my actual hometown so I consider the city my home 🙂
Have a great weekend, lovely! xoxo

Hi Elizabeth: In true blog form you are commenting from vacation. I can't wait to see your pictures. I'm just catching up on a few posts, since my last visit and "Its the Little things" plucked a little heart string. I have a wide hanging shelf in my bedroom with all my girls precious baby things. I have their tiny shoes, mugs, dolls and camp art all happily together, and they do make me smile.
How fun! Have a great trip to Dallas, I'm off to visit their stylish site!!
I see a trip to Dallas in my future…such a fun duo!! Must check out their site ~
Cristin @ Simplified Bee says
love being introduced to new blogs… this one looks great!
You have a fabulous blog, and this is a fabulous feature!!
I was born in Europe but my family moved to Canada when I was little. I have been back many times to visit and there really is *no place like home*.
La Dolfina says
You asked the right girls for advice!
It makes all the difference to get tips from those in the know!!
