Picnic Chic

In preparation for the holiday weekend, CC has prepared a delectable post aimed at outfitting her Fellow Fashionistas in the most fabulous picnic finery. Enjoy, darlings!
First, you’ll need a cozy blanket or two. Why not opt for a Missoni beach towel? Available at barneys.com.
Naturally, you’ll need a picnic basket. This set is from amazon.com.
Now for the nums! In addition to a crusty baguette or two, a Granny Smith apple and some red grapes, you’ll need this delectable Redwood Hill Farm Cheese Collection from williams-sonoma.com.
A must for any picnic? A delicious wine that’s also a conversation piece: Bitch Grenache, at klwines.com.
Surely we won’t pour our robust red into a plastic cup! Perish the thought! Bring those Riedel glasses and keep them from tipping with these genius Picnic Plus wine glass holders, at digitalfotoclub.com.
Of course, you’ll need the perfect outfit, complete with a full-skirted frock. Unique Vintage dress at unique-vintage.com.
Complement that breezy dress with a pair of heels that won’t dig into the grass. Donna Karan plaid fabric cork wedge sandals, at net-a-porter.com.
Just in case it gets a tad chilly, you’ll need a proper cardi: Fiore cotton cardigan, at jcrew.com.
Along with your SPF, you’ll need some protection from those UV rays in the form of a wide-brimmed topper. Try this Eugenia Kim Honey sunhat, at shopbop.com.
To keep yourselves entertained: Some fun games! CC and Greg are hooked on Rummy 500. Playing cards at bicyclecards.com.
Travel Backgammon Set, at barneys.com.
Don’t forget your camera! Canon PowerShot, at amazon.com.
Happy picnicking, darlings!
xoxox,
CC
