It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Round Top is here! “Round Top”, as the regulars call it, is an antique fair that takes place among the green pasture fields of Round Top, TX. There are white tents full of antiques and trinkets lining the fields along the main road through Round Top and surrounding towns!
It’s a tradition that my aunt and cousins come in from Dallas, and we meet up to shop “the fields”. To me, there is nothing better than the green countryside of Texas (I grew up going on family vacations to deer leases in Texas, so it’s nostalgic for me) and being with my family. But here’s the thing, it is HOT! We girls like to look cute, but we know we’ve got to be practical, prepared and wear the right thing, or we’ll be miserable! But, we will also be miserable if we don’t feel cute (shallow? Maybe… truth? Yes.). So, of course, my sister and I used it as the perfect excuse to go shopping!
Here’s the 411 on what to wear in Round Top:
Common staples: A fun hat to protect you from the sun and fun accessories are a common staple for women walking the fields. Fun earrings, necklaces, bangles… you name it, you’ll see it!
Shoes: Wear shoes that cover your toes, like sneakers or cowboy boots. I don’t like wearing sandals because my feet get really dirty in the fields, but my aunt doesn’t care! She said she’d rather have her feet dirty than hot and sweaty! But, you’ll possibly be moving furniture, getting in and out of cars, potentially jumping ditches and running across the two lane highway, so wear something you can move in.
Gauzy, flowy, lightweight, cotton tops are the way to go when shopping in the fields of Round Top. That way your shirt won’t stick to you from your sweat, and you’ll still feel cute.
Here’s the tops we found:

What to wear with a flowy tops- Usually, we wear our lightweight tops with denim shorts and sneakers or cowboy boots. Throw on a fun accessory, like a statement earring or straw hat, and viola!
Here are some other flowy tops I love:
Sundresses are also pretty popular out in the fields. Sundresses make sense because, once again, they disguise the sweat drip.
Here’s what we found:

Throw on some fun earrings and some boots and you’ll be the cutest person in the fields.

Now, if you’re going in the spring when the temps could be a bit cooler, you can wear a cute long sleeve top!
Top I’m wearing a size 2.
Top I’m wearing an xs.
I’d wear these tops with jeans and boots. I’d add some fun accessories, maybe even a chunky belt, and call it a day.
I guess with every outfit, there’s a fine balance between looking cute and being comfortable, but it is never more important than when you’re sweating your tail off in the fields.
