What to Wear at Round Top

There are three things I consider when putting together my outfit
for my trek up to Round Top.  I want to look cute, keep the sun off
my face and be comfortable.  

While we don't get the cool crisp days of early Fall here in Texas,
it is in fact Fall, and I want to look the part.  Enter a plaid scarf.  This
one is made from a light weight and crinkly fabric that will satisfy my
need for a hint of Autumn.  I bought this scarf years ago and I do
believe that it is my favorite accessory.   I am adding a chunky gold
necklace that will dress up my white cotton polo just a bit without
being over the top.

I am also wearing my Barton Creek bucket hat made with SPF 50 fibers.
I like to keep the sun off my face with a hat despite the layers of sunscreen
I now wear.  Fun shades are important too :-)

I am bringing my big plaid tote along as well.  Like my scarf, it's an oldie
but a goodie.  It's roomy and I can fill it with a water bottle and all other
essentials, and still have room for small packages.

If you have ever been to Round Top, you are very familiar with it's size
and scope.  I never wear cute flats or sandals.  This is a day full of 
walking and walking and walking.  

I think this is my seventh trip to Round Top.  I never tire of visiting.
It's so delightful to be out in the country, driving past pastures filled
with long horns and other cattle breeds.  The crowds don't bother me
because they are filled with principally women on a mission to find
just the perfect something for their own homes or for gifts.  They 
are women just like me who are enthralled by the variety of 
antique treasures.  Women who feel like they are wondering through
the pages of a decorating magazine as they enjoy the beautifully
styled stalls in the tents at Marburger Farm.

I promise to take lots of photos to share with you and hope that
one day you too have the chance to visit this fabulous show.

Big Texas Hugs,

  1. Have a good trip and please share your pictures. Due to Harvey, not making a trip down past Austin this year.

  2. Oh! I would love to be one of those women wandering around Round Top. How fortunate you are to live close enough to go yearly. Can't wait to see your pictures. I can only imagine the ideas you glean from going there.
    Have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
