Picnic in the Park

Spring has finally sprung around here…or it did for a few days anyway! After such a long, cold winter, we were anxious to get outside to feel the sunshine, and burn off some energy. I rounded up the family, threw together a quick picnic, and we headed to our favorite park.

Hi Sugarplum | Spring Picnic with Boden

We don’t typically dress so cute for outings like this, but I recently discovered Boden and Mini Boden, and couldn’t resist all the bright colors and patterns. They just scream SPRING to me, and this is such a fun way to show them off!

I created an impromptu picnic by lining a basket with bright fabric, and filling it with fun drinks, sandwiches, fruit and cookies. And of course paper straws, because every drink is more festive with a stripey-straw!

Have you tried the San Pellegrino Limonata? So tart and refreshing…and who can resist those little bottles? I found it here.

You know I don’t shy away from pattern mixing, but this is my first time pairing stripes with stripes…and I love the look! The key is having a common color, and opposite scales. Of course the denim jacket made another appearance…are you convinced of it’s staple status, yet?!

Boden is a UK company, and I’m thrilled to help bring their styles to America. The quality is impeccable, and you won’t even believe how cute everything is! They use European sizing, but my typical US size fits perfectly. The quality is such that I’ll keep these pieces for years.

It was a great afternoon, celebrating spring! Do you have any outings planned? How are you celebrating spring? Have you ever seen cuter clothes (or faces) than these?!?

    Please tell me that when my kids get older I will be able to dress as cute as you do! I love the stripes on stripes, and the pockets on that skirt!

    • I'm a sucker for pockets, too! And I don't dress cute all the time, but sometimes we need to remember the girl we were before we were 'mommy.' Know what I mean!? πŸ˜‰ xo

    I have loved Boden for several years now. I first discovered them when I was trying desperately to find cute clothes for little boys (which can be very difficult). Now I shop for myself. Their skirts and wrap dresses are my favorites! AND I love your stripe on stripe look.

    Oh my goodness, I spy some grapefruit Perrier in that basket! I absolutely love that stuff!! Very subtle but fab. The San Pell is great as well, that goes without saying. The outfits look great, I always go through the Boden catalogues when they arrive here and mark several pages but haven't ever purchased anything yet…I'm not sure what I am waiting for now! Well done you.

  24. Adorable clothes – check. Adorable family – check. Adorable pics to adore forever – check. Love it and love Boden.. hadn't heard of them. I recognize Georgia's farmers market behind you πŸ™‚ I need to try out that sweet little park.. I've driven by for years and never stopped.

  26. Love that whenever you take a pic with the hubby, you're either laughing hysterically or grinning at each other like school kids in love. So so awesome. The whole family looks fabulous!

    I love your outfit! In these pictures, the skirt looks more coral/pink. On the Boden site it looks a little more orange. Which would you say it's closer to? Thank you!

    • Hi! On my monitor, my pics are the exact shade of the skirt…kind of a pinky red. Hope that helps!! I love that skirt more than I should! πŸ˜‰
