WHAT TO PACK FOR THE PERFECT PICNIC

One of my favorite ways to spend a summer afternoon is packing a picnic and heading to the park. For this shoot, we headed to White Rock Lake, laid out our striped blankets, took pictures, and then drank sparkling rosé as the sun set. I also think this would be such a fun and low-key way to celebrate a summer birthday! Here’s what to wear and what to pack for the perfect picnic…

  2. This post is so sweet! And such an inspiration. I need to make more time for parks and picnics. My birthday is in August, and I’d never thought about it before, but a picnic birthday party in the evening would be so wonderful.Thank you for (another) beautiful, summery post 🙂
