WHAT I WORE: Picnic Time!

Yellow | Everybody, Everywear







Sometime last week, I was reading Natalie's blog Natalie Off Duty, and she had pictures up from a blogger picnic that she attended in Central Park in Manhattan. It looked so cute, and I started thinking to myself; "When's the last time I've attended a picnic?" It's been years!! So I decided to organize one with my friends here in Houston. The only difference is, in Houston, it's almost too hot for picnics but we managed to survive somehow. :-)



Ensemble:
Dress: Old Navy
Belt: Burlington
Shoes: Payless
Hat: Target
Lipstick: Impassioned (MAC)
Necklace: Vendor at Houston International Festival

I knew this was the dress I was going to wear to the picnic as soon as I came up with the idea to have a picnic. It's so perfect for this occasion! I have lines underneath it because I was wearing my bathing suit under it. I picked Houston's Discovery Green Park because they were hosting Target's World's Largest Sprinkler, so we thought we'd be running through it.................................Well the sprinkler was so whack. It was no more than a glorified lawn sprinkler, and even had the nerve to have less water pressure than a lawn sprinkler!!  Not only that, but there was a LINE to go through it...are you kidding? I just wanted it to be open with people allowed to run through it freely. I was not about to WAIT IN LINE, IN THE HEAT for this thing!



Luckily for us, Discovery Green was built with it's own water jets, that "kids" run through all the time, and they were still running, so Natalia and I went through the below sprinklers instead with all the little kids, which was way more fun than walking through the Target Sprinkler.

  18. adorable yellow dress! It's funny you mention blogger picnics; I'm a coordinator for the NY Fashion Bloggers Meet Up group and we've managed to get people to start them in other cities...maybe you could start one in Houston!
