Spring has just begun here in New Hampshire. The other day, my friends and I had a first day of spring picnic, to soak up the sun and welcome in the season. To me, picnics feel like summer. Whenever I go hiking, which is typically in the middle of the July, I always pack a lunch and have a little picnic at the top of the mountain. However, my picnic lunches are typically more of a squished PB&J and lightly dented apple deal than beautiful gourmet spread. Before I found Love Picnics, I wasn’t even aware that something like a beautiful gourmet picnic basket actually existed. Love Picnics reviews picnic baskets, so that you can get one that you’re sure won’t a) break mid hike when you’re scaling a rock face, b) won’t let your egg salad sandwiches get overheated and c) make you look like a picnic queen. They also have gift baskets, if your picnic crew is more of the backyard picnicking sort. They’ll help you make the perfect pick(nic)!

shirt- Zara, shoes- Topshop, jeans- Levi’s

Sarah trying to be an acrobatics star, take three. Really though, I utterly adore these shoes. They’re Dorthy-esq (there’s no place like home! There’s no place like home! There’s no place like home!), a little bit western, a little rocker, and very very red. I had another pair of red shoes, oxford style, back in 8th grade. I wore them to pieces. I’m pretty sure one of my very first pairs of shoes were red. Clearly, I haven’t changed that much.

A Very Sort of BTS

I went out and took some pictures with friends. There was a big swing, loads of fresh April mud, and one very big red bow involved.

No Sweatshirt Club

I’m loving the revival of ridiculous blouses, over the top shoes, and rejection of all things minimalist. I can even get behind those jeans with the clear knees! But I’m not on board with the whole sweatshirt thing. I’m guilty of wearing shirts as dresses, and of rejecting form for functionality, but I’m just sick and tired of people wearing oversized sweatshirts with no pants in the name of fashion. I guess I’m that bitter person who just wants everyone else to be uncomfortable. What do you think?

Tuxedo x Maître d’ x Elizabethan

This shirt feels like a mix between a tuxedo x maître d’ x Elizabethan shirt. It’s pure silk, and through some twist of fate I got it for 80% off at J Crew. I spent two months trying to figure out how to style it before I realized that it has a mind of its own. It’s the sort of shirt that you wear knowing full well that you look like a 1590’s nobleman. You just have to embrace it. I teamed it here with a little denim skirt I made, and some Docs to make it a little tougher.
