SUGAR SHACK SUMMER NIGHTS
LOCATION: FORT WORTH, TX • AUGUST 12, 2016
Earlier this week we had a couple nights with a break in the heat. The weather continues to crawl up into triple digits and there’s no end in sight for now. So when we realized it was fairly nice out for a summer night in Texas we hopped in the car and drove down the street to the Sugar Shack Shaved Ice Shack. I had been passing by the cute little airstream for a couple weeks now but hadn’t braved the heat to try it out until this week. We weren’t the only ones wanting to enjoy the night with snow cones in hand, there were a couple families sitting around the picnic tables and another local blogger I had the pleasure of meeting, the thrifty pineapple-check out her blog!
The Sugar Shack sits next to Taco Heads which is one of my favorite spots for queso and they both have a great view of downtown, the sun was beginning to set which made the buildings shimmer a pink and orange sheen. I ordered the Sugar Shack flavored snow cone…which disappeared quickly between the two of us. It was cool and refreshing without being overly sweet, a coconut, pink bubblegum flavor with a dash of sprinkles. After I had made my selection I asked what flavor ranked the most popular among customers in which I quickly learned was the Dorie- a mixture of blue coconut and wedding cake flavors with whipped cream and sprinkles! I’ll be trying that on our next trip!
Two items that everyone woman should have in her wardrobe for summer are a great pair denim jeans and the perfect summer straw hat. I kept my look simple with a chambray top and denim combination. This Lush top is a little oversized and incredibly comfortable, it’s lightweight material makes it breathable. I’m always looking for new hats to add to my wardrobe but don’t have the best luck with the right fit. I recently found the most perfect fitting hat which I immediately had to bring it home. This one, this one and this one are all great to shield off the sun. I also can’t live without my chloe flats, they’re seriously my saving grace during the week and especially during the work day.
