Last weekend when we headed out to the lake, we took the drive leisurely and stopped many times along the way to appreciate (and photograph) the beauty of the Texas hill country. We try not to take for granted the fact that we’re surrounded by rolling hills, lakes, and lush landscape and get out to enjoy it as much as we can.
We passed through a few small towns that reminded me of my own hometown with the old buildings and railroad tracks running through the center. We stopped in one of them when we noticed some veggies being sold on the side of the road and bought a few. I just love the thought of a mom-and-pop couple going through their garden each day and picking the ripe ones — and locally grown vegetables and fruits are always way more flavorful than store bought.
I wore an outfit that was comfortable for traveling in a car and getting out frequently to walk around. This Madewell sleeveless shirt is a light fabric that’s perfect for summer and I love the fringe detailing. I wore it with dark denim and these embroidered espadrille wedges (the comfiest shoe ever!) and of course, my boater hat I’ve been wearing with everything.
We continued our drive and stopped several more times to take photos. There were fields of wildflowers, goats, and two gorgeous horses that came right up to us (see my instagram here of Blake saying hello to them); the sunny morning and scenery was everything you could ask for when taking a cruise into the country.
