picnic-style Whenever I start planning an event, the first place I go is pinterest. I pull anything and everything that fits my vision. From styling details and cool packaging to possible drink recipes and goodie bag candidates. Good visuals are everything. For me, it paves the way for turning that party idea into a party reality.

For this month's Eat Drink Create (psst have you rsvp'd yet???), Lexy and I are doing a picnic theme. Cherries, pie, gingham - real traditional like. With our special pizazz thrown in there, of course.

Here are a few items from my original pinterest board that inspired this month's event... I would've loooved to have any of these gems at EDC, especially that pillow!

what to wear to a picnic date It's a special date night edition of In Love this week! This summer I'm really making an effort to get outside. After a long work week, it's so tempting to just crank up the AC and binge-watch Netflix with Kevin. But nay. Not this summer. I want to take advantage of these summer days and nights. Hang out by the pool, grill on the patio, do a little hiking...

One of my favorite date ideas is to take a picnic to the park right by our house. It's the perfect picnic spot, surrounded by trees and so peaceful. The other night we did just that. We packed up a few sandwiches, strawberries, popcorn, and some vintage-y looking Pepsis that I'm obsessed with. So much fun! I highly recommend a picnic date...

To be honest, I'm not a big shorts and sandals kind of girl. Those bright skinnies and oxfords are my go-to combination this summer. Add a cute patterned top? Good to go, homegirl.
