A Picnic Perfect Day

{Romper - Poetry; Tank, Bracelets, Necklace, Sandals - F21}

Since yesterday was blazing hot, we thought it would be the perfect day to spend at the lake where temperatures were quite a bit lower.  The hubs whipped up some amazing chicken salad for our picnic lunch and I whipped out my little floral romper for our afternoon of enjoying the outdoors with the pooch.  I cannot even remember the last time I had a picnic, so I thoroughly enjoyed eating off a blanket and watching ants chasing our crumbs; probably more than a normal adult should.  But there is just something romantic about a picnic under the trees, and that, mixed with the nostalgia of picnics long past, made for the perfect little outing . . . even despite the wet, muddy dog running all over the blanket and shaking off right next to us.



{Notice the muddy paw prints!}

  3. I love picnics! Husband and I use to have picnics all the time when we were both in school together. The one thing our downtown campus has is really pretty grounds, so we'd find a spot, settle in and have ourselves a little lunch! :-) I think we might have to go on a picnic sometime soon! <3

  26. I love your hat and your shoes! Your outfit is so weather-friendly too. It seems like it's just too hot for anything that isn't short or sleeveless.
