With summer officially here (yay), it is time to get outside and start enjoying the warm weather. Summer is my personal favorite time of the year, and what better way to enjoy the sun with a picnic!
Here is my picture perfect picnic and details on where to get everything:
First, let’s talk about location. For you San Diego locals like me, I went to Del Mar inbetween Del Mar Heights and Via de la Valle. There was the a grass park on the cliffs overlooking the ocean, where we had our picnic. The main key to location is shade! If you are in full sun, not only will your picnic’s food go bad, you will also be very hot, unless your bring along an umbrella!
Other prime locations locally include beaches and parks such as; Torrey Pines, Encinitas, Myrtle Creek, Balboa Park, La Jolla, etc.
Let’s get to the good part now… FOOD! Smoke & Brine, a local cheese, meat, and fruit plate shop in Escondido, prepared the perfect snacks for my picnic with this stunning fruit plate!
If you prefer to pack your picnic yourself, some of my favorite picnic bites include salads, cold sandwiches, fruits, chicken salad, etc.
Every picnic needs a minimum of two things.. a picnic basket and a blanket! Three Sparrow Vintage is where I got my authentic picnic basket. It has come in handy for more than just picnics too! Prep Obsessed has the cutest round beach towels, which is what I used for my picnic!
If you are like me, while you are having a picnic, chances are you are taking lots of photos! Here are all my favorite outfit details that you need!
This third summer look is perfect for night and day! Here, I am wearing a floral maxi dress, handbag, wedges, and a straw hat. As you can see throughout my three outfits, these wedges and handbag are my summer essential staples in my wardrobe. The purse is a neutral that pairs perfectly with all classy looks. These wedges from Restricted Shoes are not only stylish, but extremely comfortable. I look forward to wearing them in New York City next month.
