Texas Travels: Melissa & McKinney


Sorry I’ve been caught up with a big summer move but I’m back with a post from my small-town Texas travels.

I recently went to Melissa, Texas for my cousin’s graduation. My sweet Nanny took me to the neighboring town of McKinney for a little window shopping. Let me just say, McKinney’s historic downtown was one of the most charming places I have ever been to!

All of the buildings are roughly from the late 1800’s- early 1900’s and the insides have been revamped to be quaint coffee shops, posh boutiques, and various antique stores. It is basically a Pinterest dream!

^I wanted to play dress-up all day in there!

Nanny & I fell in love with this dramatic, removable train…what a southern wedding dream! Side Note: OBSESSED with the clock purse.

Bank turned high-end boutique! You can only imagine how opulent the inside was…


I went total athleisure for our little excursion. I would have stuck out like a sore thumb in my normal dramatic style! The Melissa/McKinney area is known for their school spirit. Basically everywhere you turn you see a red cardinal, their high school’s mascot, so it was only right for me to represent. When in Rome!
