What to wear to a picnic

 Happy Sunday Glams!



With the splendid hot weather we're enjoying here in Washington DC, this month is the perfect time to enjoy outdoor time with your friends and Family before the cool weather starts heading our way.
While you're munching on fried chicken wings and salad and drinking Lemonade and Ice-tea  you'll need to be wearing something light and cooling.



                                                       
Picnic dressing involves easy-to-wear casual separates that can be layered on if the weather turns cold, and will look good if you decide to splash out on a cream tea.
Denim skirts are easy to wear and hard wearing too (those grass stains will wash out easily!) pair them with an easy tank or a simple crop top as I have done.



Capri pants are another casual staple that will work with a floral shirt or thin cap-sleeved knit.
However if you're taking deck chairs you can dare to wear something more flimsy so indulge your romantic side and pick an easy-to-wear bias cut skirt or dress with feminine details like beading or ribbon trims - vintage 40s tea dress would be perfect.




A cardigan is the perfect cover-up if the sky clouds over. Cotton or light-weight wool are your best bets and go for candy-bright colors during the summer months.
