Eating outside is one of life’s great pleasures, especially when you live in a city where it’s cold nine months of the year. All you need for the perfect picnic is a charming basket filled with goodies, a soft blanket, and a cute outfit. You want to look pretty and outdoorsy at the same time.
The backbone for any great outfit is the right bra. This sweet cotton number has great shape and holds up well under your favourite t-shirt.
Jean shorts are a summer staple. Dress up this classic pair with a bamboo and organic cotton ruffle fringe wrap shirt. Pair with light metallic sandals that are both comfortable and stylish.
Accessorize with this silver-tone necklace. The feathers are so delicate and great for an al fresco event. Lastly, add this gorgeous and sporty watch. It features 44 diamonds, a mother of pearl dial and a vulcanized white rubber strap.
Tote your picnic extras (hat, sunscreen and water) in a socially responsible cotton canvas bag.
