We’ve planned out a series of travel destinations that embody the collection’s design aesthetics over the next few months for summer 2019. Most recently, we met up with bloggers, Alexis Belbell and Amanda Miller Pollard in Dallas to explore the city and debut our summer-ready Z SUPPLY product offerings. We also teamed up with Frontdoor Fashion where we put together a gift box that entails several of our classic tees with the addition of other wardrobe staples that Frontdoor Fashion provided for the visitors on the trip.
Throughout the trip, we explored the city’s art district, settled into several cozy coffee shops, visited farmer's markets and dined in some of the top local spots.

Where to Caffeinate
There are a plethora of local coffee spots to choose from in Dallas. Standing out amongst the dusky neutral tones of the downtown buildings are the vibrant blue tiles of the Commissary café. We stopped by for coffee and avocado toast, but the café is also a bakery and butcher shop that houses its own menu, which spans from breakfast and lunch to dinner options. In addition to standard food and beverages, they also have an array of wine and gelato selections.
What to wear: The Snakeskin Ultimate Crew Tee is an easy essential that can be dressed up or down. We love it because it’s ultra-soft and chic. It’s also a statement traveling essential.

What to See
Through exploring the downtown sites of Dallas, some of the landmarks that stood out were located in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. The district is home to all sorts of vivid art murals, art galleries and concert venues, where the city has been commissioning local artists to create a variety of unique projects since 1991.
What to Wear: The Pinstripe Short Overalls are ideal for warm weather. They’re comfortable and easy to wear with other summer essentials and are versatile for exploring around town.

Where to Eat
Dallas is a Tex Mex paradise. We had to experiment with this interpretation of Mexican dishes firsthand, which is why we ventured to Mi Cocina for the authentic dining experience. Emphasizing the highest quality ingredients, the almost 30-year old restaurant offers savory dishes like, slow roasted brisket tacos, an assortment of salads and cocina changa classics. Most recently they tapped into the food truck business that roams the perimeters of the downtown Dallas region.
Following dinner at Mi Cocina, we hopped over to The Rustic for drinks. With three total locations in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, this backyard bar style location also offers an assortment of craft beer selections, as well as live music from local and national artists.
