Five easy picnic ideas for the perfect summer day at the park, beach, or even backyard … from picnic food suggestions to packing it all up in a cute picnic basket!
I’ve rounded up 10 things to try this May … get inspired to do something new this month!
This Brie and Apple Sandwich is the ultimate picnic food! Enjoy it outdoors or anytime you need a summery pick me up!
How excited are you for the first day of fall?!? It’s my favorite season, and there’s definitely (finally!) an autumn vibe in the air. I’ve noticed a few colorful leaves this week, and it’s been getting dark earlier and earlier.
The weather is cooling off, too. It’s been in the seventies, which I love. My husband often teases me that I’m only happy when it’s 72 and sunny, so I’m in heaven right now!
Of course, this perfect weather won’t last much longer. So I decided to take advantage of it and planned an autumn picnic in Central Park last weekend.
Well, hello there! I hope you had a great 4th of July. Mine was wonderfully low-key, which I loved.
I’m excited to be heading to the beach today. We don’t go often, so I’m really looking forward it. My only hope is that I don’t come home as red as a lobster, which is my usual post-beach look (even with sunblock). Lobster skin or not, it should be fun!
I thought I’d do a beach-themed roundup today in honor of our trip:
This Saint James Bikini from Coach is adorable. I love the retro styling.
If you want something a little more covered up, you may like this Belted Sailboat One-Piece from Lime Ricki. Hello, sailor!
I can’t get enough stripes in my life, so I couldn’t leave these Cabana Stripe Beach Towels from Dwell Studio off my list. They come in so many colors that it’s hard to choose my favorite!
We bought a pair of these Beach Chairs from Target. I like how they sit low to the ground so you can sink your feet into the sand, and you certainly can’t beat the price!
I am about as pale as you can get (see previously mentioned lobster skin), so I use this Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer anytime I head to the beach. Self-tanner is notorious for its stinky scent, so I usually apply it the night before and then shower in the morning. Jergens has (mostly) gotten rid of most of that stinky smell though, so I may just apply it in the morning and go.
A pair of cute sandals is a must! I have a pair of these Vaughn T-Straps from Loft, and I love them. They are so comfortable that it almost feels like you aren’t wearing shoes at all.
This Embroidered Gauze Cover Up from Old Navy is pretty and breezy – love it!
If you are packing food, might I suggest this Lemon Asparagus Couscous Salad with Tomatoes? Yum!
Last but not least, a juicy read is a must! I’m bringing The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Wiener.
Pack everything into a big tote (love this colorblocked one), grab a six pack of beer or soda, and you are good to go!
When’s the last time you went to the beach?
