The Influencers

VoyageDallas owes a huge debt to the incredible local community of influencers – from fashion bloggers to foodies – who put in countless hours of work uncovering hidden gems throughout Dallas & Fort Worth. We’d like to introduce you to some of DFW’s most gifted tastemakers and influencers below.

/ / l o n g . p o s t . a l e r t / / Yesterday we missed our 1st flight (got there in plenty of time for the flight, but not in enough time to check our bags) Then, we didn’t get our new tickets for the next flight until 30 minutes before the plane left. Which meant, again, we didn’t have enough time to check our bags. ➖ You should’ve seen us rushing through TSA with our family sized baggage and sleepy kids, while they threw away the lotions, sunscreens, and body washes from the big bag that was supposed to be checked. 😭We thought the stressful part was over. But no, an alert from my phone said the flight changed terminals. Running through the airport and on sky trains with a stroller, 2 kids, and 3 suitcases is not a good look. I never even ran to class when I was late. I never wanted to be “the runner.” 🤦🏽‍♀️ ➖ Josh beat me to the gate and literally stood in the door with his body to keep them from leaving without Ellie and I. They checked our bags, ran us down the runway, and held us at the plane so they could find seats for us since our new tickets were unassigned. They found seats…separated. Ellie and I on row 7 and josh on row 29. 4 hours with a 4 month old a 2 year old in a confined space, isn’t a good look either. ➖ All this to say, don’t let Instagram fool you. So many times I’ve looked at other people’s Instagram life and allowed myself to believe in perfection. Lives where nothing goes wrong and everything is documented beautifully, kids are always happy and well behaved, moms are forever put together, hair maintains the perfect twist-out with edges staying laid, relationships are GOALS, and homes are spotless. Just in case anyone ever believed that my highlight reel was more than a HIGHLIGHT REEL I wanted to set the record straight. Don’t allow pretty pictures to steal an ounce of joy from your beautiful life. #momlife

Wishing I was pool side but maybe not in this AZ heat! 😅😎🔥 I’ve been loving these floral scarves for the summer. 💐 Who else does too? 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️💕 Last night I was watching a food documentary City of Gold about former food critic Jonathan Gold. 🤓 You should watch if you haven’t seen it. I noticed one of the restaurant owners they interviewed was wearing a floral scarf like the one I’m wearing! 💐😱 Of course I was immediately intrigued. I’m always curious to see how Navajo/Native fashion has evolved into what it is today. It was an Oaxacan Mexican restaurant, so I looked up Oaxaca scarves. This is what I found in my search ➡️ These beautiful floral “mascadas” (scarves) are worn by the indigenous women at the Sunday Tlacolula market in Oaxaca, Mexico. Their vibrant flowers and colors are showstoppers when worn around the neck, folded in half and draped over the back, or as a head wrap. 🔚 How awesome is that!! My heart lit up as I saw cute grandmas wearing these scarves! 👵🏼💕💐 Through trade I’m sure these scarves made their way to Navajo land. Or maybe through relatives? 👯‍♀️💕 How awesome is that! Do you know of any other regions that wear these scarves? Let me know below! 👇🏽 #azblogger #nativefashion #livecolorfully

    It’s great to see Voyage Dallas celebrating local influencers. Our business was covered here too nearly a year ago and we still get people telling us they say us here (especially when people do a google search for us). You guys rock for Dallas!
