The (possibly only) good thing about summer winding down is the glorious return of patio weather. As any seasoned patio-goer knows, not all patios were created equal. Certain patios are better suited for work, while others are better for play. Luckily, the patios at The Shops at Park Lane cover all of these occasions. So with no further ado, we present our official comprehensive guide to our very best patios:

Here’s the thing about rules: most of them are super lame. Case in point: “No white after Labor Day.” Say what? You really expect us to eliminate an entire color from our wardrobes simply because it’s no longer “summer”? Come ON. The calendar might say that fall is coming soon, but Texas temps beg to differ. So we’re putting our proverbial foot down once and for all. Call us rebellious, but we love wearing white, darn it, and we’re not...

Kids these days. Between Pokémon GO and Snapchat, they are having the best time ever. And on top of that, they get to go back-to-school shopping, too. Well you know what? We’re not letting kids have all the fun anymore. Why? Because adulting is hard and we deserve to have some fun with back-to-school shopping, too…even if we’re only heading back to the office. Here are our top “back-to-school” picks for the already-graduated crowd.

There’s absolutely no denying that summer is 100% here, in all its blazing glory. And we do mean blazing.
When it feels like it is literally 1,000 degrees outside, everyone’s instinct is to just stay inside and not wear pants. But for those times when you actually have to leave the house, pants are (regrettably) required.
So what do we do when we have to look good in sweltering heat? We turn to a few of our favorite Dallas influencers for style inspiration:...
