THIS GIRL'S Thursday Threads: Picnics & BBQs

Fashion AlfrescoBy Sara Neal Candito Spring is in the air. This week has been filled with warm sunshine & blue skies in the city by the bay. I can't help but fantasize about picnic outings & backyard barbeques in the days to come... like this weekend. There's nothing better than alfresco dining with good friends- except maybe shopping for that perfect ensemble for the occasion. If you get panicky at the thought of finding that "I look amazing without even trying" outfit, fear not. Below are some inspirations for whatever event you have coming up: roof top soiree, a picnic at the park or a backyard fete. This spring's pastels mixed with a bolder color make a great palette. My favorite combo right now is mint & coral. Maxi dresses & skirts make for great outdoor outfits. You look feminine & pulled together, but can comfortably sit on the ground without flashing everyone like a Hollywood starlet. Polka dots, chevron stripes, ikat, & ombre are great trends right now. A washed out denim shirt makes an awesome wrap since the temperatures are never predictable despite our wishes otherwise. Remember to pack your sunnies & some suncreen since your pale winter skin may not be as excited about the rays as your sun deprived soul.
