Hello on this glorious autumn Monday and welcome to my post on Road Trippin’ with Leigh & me to Boerne!
Texas Hill Country towns are wonderful places to shop for the holidays. I love the decor of the shops and the finds within.
I share these outings with you for two main reasons:
- To encourage you to get out when possible and enjoy your community and the country around it. Most of the people we see on these trips are in our age group and beyond.
- To encourage you to shop local. Especially this year….we spoke with two small business owners who will be hit hard by the supply chain issues…once many of their popular items are gone, they do not expect to see them replenished for at least a year.
WHAT WE WORE ROAD TRIPPIN’ TO BOERNE
Typical South Texas weather right now is nippy in the morning, and up to thirty degrees warmer in the afternoon. Layering is important. You can see I ditched my scarf…which is an old Soft Surroundings scarf.
Both Leigh Ann and I showed up in stripes, and I saw other women in similar stripes. My top is the Striped Boatneck top in Rust from Loft. And one of my favorite Talbots’ jackets….Casual Washed Blazer in Jungle Green.
Leigh Ann’s striped top is a past purchase at Target.
I might pick up one of these! If you are looking for striped tops, here are some options in all colors:
As far as what else to wear on a road trip….a big bottle of water, and comfy shoes! I wore sneakers and Leigh Ann wore slip-on flats.
WHAT WE SAW ROAD TRIPPIN’ TO BOERNE
There are so many great shops in Boerne, but I think our favorite is called 259 Home Market.
First of all, they had stunning hats that looked so amazing on Leigh Ann. These hats are designed by a San Antonio company called Chidah Frida.
Cozy and warm is what this store exudes with their decor and beautiful holiday offerings….as well as some gorgeous bronze flowers I loved.
However, I walked away with stocking stuffers. I always look for one fun candy for the grandchildren, and this chocolate filled peppermint candy cane is this year’s winner.
It was fun to find the shops all decked out for the holidays…this year the early shopping has not bothered me. I guess because of all of the talk of shortages.
I want to see these small businesses survive…they are the backbone of our American economy. So, please show the ones in your community some love.
We had such a great time…kind people…good food…unique shopping…just not enough time!
Thanks for going on another road trip with us…this week, the conversations will be around clothing, confidence and cooking. We have some recipes for you..it is that time of year that I love to be in the kitchen!
I will show you one of Mr. B’s favorite treats that I bought for him in Boerne…you could fix it anywhere. Now, make sure you……..
KEEP SMILING EVERYONE!!
