Summer’s here! Haven’t we waited long enough? The flowers are blooming, the sprinklers are glittering on the lawns, the kids are outside every night shrieking and laughing and playing until they get called in.


I am ready for a picnic, and ready for a picnic with my pals in the fashion bloggers’ group. I am wearing a cute romper from winly Jun. With the puffy legs with their bows, the bows down the front, and the bow in back, it could almost be too much but the plaid makes it all work.


My pals in fashion bloggers helped me out with the vital accessories. This great straw hat by Kan Greene is imperative, especially when wearing a fair skin such as Mallory Cowen’s. Mallory understands the touch of delicate paleness a redhead needs, and I would shudder to let this beautiful face burn. The darling basket from Mouse Mimistrobell is ideal for the kind of picnic I would like—wine, cheese, bread and flowers all around.
