Horny Toad loves weekend getaways, and we bet you do too… so for the next 5 months we’re picking a city we like to visit and giving you the insider’s scoop on where to eat, drink and be merry. This month we’re taking you to Austin, Texas, which happens to be an amazing Spring Break destination thanks to all college kids departing for sandy beaches and all the good music arriving for South by Southwest (SXSW).
Of course you need the right travel clothes for your weekend getaway.

Without further ado, here’s the scoop on Austin:
1. The Horny Toad Shadowstripe Pullover
is the perfect thing to pack for a weekend in Austin. It’s beautiful and feels light as air thanks to the linen/cotton yarn its made from and it actually seems to get a little better every time it’s worn. Layer it over a simple tank or wear it under a lightweight jacket. Dress it up or down – there’s really no going wrong with this one.
2. Eat like a Texan. Boggy Creek Farm
is one of the nation’s first urban market farms and provides “hyper-fresh produce for Austin since 1991.” Market days are year-round, every Saturday and Wednesday from 8-1.
3. The earthy, lightweight PDX Cotton Scarf
transports your travel clothing from everyday to elegant and worldly and can pull an outfit together like no one’s business.
5. Like fresh air held together by organic cotton yarns, our Airbrush Short Sleeve Men’s Shirt
is the über-ventilator welcomed by hot-weather enthusiasts everywhere. It’s lightweight and breezy and exactly what you want when the mercury and humidity rise but your yen to look and feel cool holds steadfast.
9. For our money there’s no finer example of casual elegance than 100% pure linen. Our Lithe Short
promises to keep you looking and feeling cool as a summer breeze your Austin adventure.
11. It might be hot as asphalt in August, but you can keep your cool with the right pair of shorts. The Easystreet Short
is made from debonair linen and hard-working cotton that manages moisture, wears like iron and gets better with every wash.
12. Whether you’re traveling with your best friend or just miss him, Red Bud Isle Dog Park
will give dog lovers the fix they need. It’s a 13 acre off-leash dog park situated on a peninsula surrounded by Lady Bird Lake in Austin. Don’t forget your Chuckit!
