What to Wear & Bring to a Summer Picnic

Who’s enjoying summer? Has anyone attended any backyard BBQs, beach lunches, or outdoor family reunions? If you have something that involves food & fashion coming up this is the blog post for you.

What to Wear

When attending an outdoor party, you’ll want to feel comfortable & wear cool clothing–think seersucker, linen, light cotton, and other breathable fabrics. While you might want to go light on the layers (it’s always smart to pack a light sweater/cardi for chillier temps in the evening) you can dress up your look with accessories and shoes.

In our NIIRVA Shop, we love the idea of stacking textured bangles. Whether you wear on one wrist or two–a summer outdoor picnic is the perfect time to do so!

In addition to bangles, earrings are a great way to punch up your #ootd. Subtle statement earrings found in our shop are great pieces to be a little more playful.

Okay, let’s talk shoes! Woven flats and slides are so on-trend for summer. You know the straw and woven bags? Well, it’s transitioned into a major shoe movement too. Aside from woven slides, these Zara leather espadrilles/mules are perfect for BBQs! Plus, they’re on major sale!

What to Bring

It’s always polite to pack something to take to any picnic you’re invited to.

This Martha Stewart recipe for homemade cranberry-oat cereal bar is festive (and won’t spoil) for any outdoor gathering!

Okay, how perfect is this watermelon cookie cake hack by food and craft blogger Aww Sam? So easy and fun to take to any party.

If you’re hosting your own pool party you’ll want to have a signature cocktail. This coconut and cranberry raspberry daiquiri by Sugar and Cloth screams summer-perfection!

Yum! Yum!
