Although it doesn’t necessarily guard against spilled condiments aside from mayo, this blue all over outfit kept me cool and comfortable while spending time outdoors sitting on a picnic table bench. I could have even sat on a checkered blanket in this getup, if it weren’t for the ever-present Texas fire ants…
Wondering what to wear for an outdoor eating experience this summer?
- Look for pale colors. The sun wont catch you quite as strongly in it’s laser beam, and you wont sweat as much.
- Select a loose-fitting blouse. I like this sleeveless one with the large armholes. It’s still fitted, but doesn’t cling.
- Shorts. They are just more comfortable to sit in if you’re going to be sitting on the ground or moving around a lot. A fuller skirt can be comfortable too, but nothing super tight or short or you had better wear some cute undies too!
- Comfortable shoes. These Toms wedges have a picnic-y stripe!
So there are a few tips for looking adorable while dining outside. I added some punchy colors to break up the blues, and felt like I could run around and/or stuff my face all day!
