Over the next two weeks I am going to post a few ideas for Fourth of July outfits that can be worn all Summer long. I recently received this cute white tennis skirt as a gift and let me tell you… my life has been changed. It actually has shorts underneath! I loved it so much I wore it twice over the weekend. I paired it with a white camisole on my Shop Three Heel Clicks Instagram account and then with this classic red and white striped tee in today’s post. If you do not own a tennis skirt, I suggest you run with Godspeed to get one. You’ll thank me later.

Between my parents’ house in College Station, TX and my own apartment right outside of Houston there are two Farmer's Markets I frequently stop at for a break on my hour and a half drive back and forth. I love fresh produce. I find the more vegetables and fruit I eat the more vibrant I feel. Don’t get me wrong, I still have to appease late night cravings for chocolate and ice cream but if I have delicious fruits on hand I am more likely to reach for them throughout the day.
I’ve shared a few posts about one of the Dilorio’s Market locations here on the blog a few times which is a smaller stand on the roadside of Highway 6, but they have an even larger location if you drive into the small town of Hempstead, TX. I love bringing my picnic basket to store and protect the produce I pick up so it’s not bruised or mashed when I get home. Tip: Don’t store bananas in a paper bag if you like the to remain yellow. Paper bags will ripen them immediately, instead opt for your own reusable bags, totes or baskets to keep your produce fresh!
A big boater hat, sandals and cross body complete a weekend look keeping you cool, comfortable and the sun off the face. Our Summers in Texas are relentless. So ensuring I protect my skin by wearing a lightweight long sleeve cotton top and adding a hat helps immensely. Don’t forget a pair of sunglasses for the drive. With big open fields and ranches there is little protection from the sunlight when clouds dissipate.
