Like a Summer Picnic

I hope everyone had a relaxing three day weekend for Memorial Day! It's hard to believe that summer is upon us but with a heatwave coming this week to Southern California, I am no longer in denial! I thought this cute tee featuring various fruits and vegetables and my check skirt would be the perfect thing to wear for the Memorial Day holiday because of the patriotic colors of red, white, and blue. I also think that this outfit looks like a summer picnic embodied in an outfit! The top, featuring all of the summery fruits, is a nod to what one might pack in a picnic basket and the skirt, obviously, looks like it could very easily be a picnic blanket! The park where these photos were taken would make for an ideal picnic location and, actually, a few people were there relaxing on blankets or sitting at picnic tables.

You might recall that I also have a dress in this fun print, which is from the Uniqlo collaboration with Marimekko. As you can tell, I purchased a lot of pieces from that collection. In fact, I even placed a new order from Uniqlo to buy some additional pieces that I missed the first time around! Luckily, this top was under $20, so it was a very affordable piece to add to my wardrobe. It looks cute tucked into a skirt but it would be equally cute in cooler months with a pair of green or blue pants. This particular styling of my tee will most likely have to wait until things cool off a bit, which may not be for a while, now that summer is in full swing!
