What To Wear To a Picnic?

April 17, 2013

Ahhhhh, the picnic season is here!!!! Bring your blanket, basket, favorite snacks and drinks and take time in the country to relax.
Last week we decided to picnic in Bethabara Park in Winston Salem, NC. It's an adorable area with a lot of Moravian history and great trails for that romantic sunset walk or your early morning intensive runs.
What to wear to a picnic? Well, I decided to wear my classic boater hat (HERE), a gingham dress and since the weather can turn out a little bit chilly during dusk...I wore a gingham shirt over my dress. I really love the way the big and small plaid looked together. My Converse vintage Chuck Taylor has become a must every time I go for outdoors picnics since they are comfortable and chic.

Ahhhhh, La temporada para los dias de campo llegó!!!! Traiga su manta, canasta, aperitivos y bebidas favoritas y disfrute la tarde en el campo.
La semana pasada nos decidimos ir por un día de campo al Parque Bethabara en Winston Salem, NC. Es un parque adorable con mucha historia de los Moravians y caminos perfectos para una caminada romantica en la puesta del sol o para ejercitarse en la mañana.
Me decidí ponerme mi sombrero de varquero y vestido cuadriculado, ademas me puse una camisa de cuadros pequeños en caso de que el tiempo se pusiera un poco frío con la puesta del sol. Les digo que me fascinó como quedo el conjunto combinado con dos piezas cuadriculadas. Y por supuesto tengo que mencionar que mis Converse Chuck Taylors no faltan cuando voy al campo para pasar un día relajado. Son prácticos, cómodos y estilosos que dan con todo.

It's so nice to see your outfit as it gives me some great ideas. I love your straw boater too! All so perfect for a picnic.
