I am seriously loving the fruit print trend this summer, as vintage fruit print pieces have always been some of my favorite to collect. Treasures like this fruit adorned basket purse and milkglass fruit charm bracelet are just a few of my favorites. I also LOVE the fun print + laidback cut of this new strawberry dress from Forever21, and at less than $20 (!!!!) it's a must-have for summer! As with most pieces at Forever21, go ahead and size up on this one for the best fit! I've linked all my outfit details as well as similar vintage pieces for you to shop above + below!Read More

This time of year I can't get enough of the pink + pastels to brighten up my winter wardrobe and get ready for spring. I love this sweatshirt dress I found this past week at TJMaxx- so cozy + comfy and the most perfect bright pink shade! I paired it with my favorite vintage oversized denim jacket, which is a piece I feel like I'll be layering with constantly into spring.

Nothing says summer like a picnic spread full of bright and colorful fruit, gingham galore, and lots of snacks + light bites to share. It's also a perfect excuse to get outside with friends and family and enjoy a meal in the sunshine or even under the stars. I've made your picnic prep super easy by putting together a list of easy to transport picnic foods that also require zero prep so they're ready to pack straight from the grocery! You'll also find my list of picnic essentials to help you set up the prettiest summer spread around! Grab both of these printable lists below and then you're ready to pack away- happy picnicking!
Make your picnic as simple as possible by grabbing snacks and fruit at the grocery so you don't have to worry about preparing any food! I've made it easy with my printable shopping list above. Start with my favorite summer fruits (choose a few or all depending on the size of your crowd!). Next up are snacks that are perfect for sharing: choose a few breads and crackers, then some cheeses, meats, and pickles, + finally a dessert of your choice (I chose a premade Blueberry pie from Trader Joe's!). Finally throw a few drinks in like sparkling water, lemonade (I used Pellegrino canned sparkling lemonades!), and your favorite beer or wine!
Here's what you'll need to pack a picnic that's just as pretty as it is functional!:
1. Picnic blanket: I used a couple of vintage tablecloths but you can also use blankets or throws too!
2. Picnic basket: Any type of basket will do! I have a few vintage picnic baskets but you can also transport everything in a cooler or cooler bag or any large basket with a handle.
3. Cutting board: Since the ground can be uneven, bring a few cutting boards or large platters for a flat and stable serving surface!
4. Flowers: Not necessary but they always make any spread prettier!
5. Vintage glasses or cups: I grabbed some colorful vintage glasses for our drinks, but you can also use cute printed paper cups, or just grab cute bottled drinks and bypass the cups completely!
6. Silverware + napkins: Necessary for any meal- use disposable or regular! I grabbed some cute gingham napkins for another pop of pattern!
7. Paper or enamel plates: Don't forget something to eat off of! I used vintage enamel plates but you can also use cute printed paper plates or disposable plates of any kind!
Obviously I can't get enough of my vintage printed skirts lately and this combo pretty much sums up my ideal summer weekend outfit! I love pairing more casual staples like a distressed tee + sneakers with my favorite girly vintage skirts. This one is several years old but the shorter length + vintage plaid will make it one of my favorites for years to come! I've linked lots of similar skirts, tees, and my fave (and most comfy) summer sneakers from Frye at the end of this post for you to shop!

Y'all know I can't ever turn down a cute little denim dress! And when I saw the daisy trim on this little vintage number I was in love! I love the babydoll 90's cut and summery chambray material that you can dress up or down! Daisy details + prints are often part of my favorite vintage finds and so perfect for summer! I've linked a TON of similar vintage dress options at the end of this post for you to shop- all denim with daisy details and this cute little fit + flare silhouette (it even includes one of the EXACT same dress)!
