What I Wore to Tea Time {may}

It feels like Tuesday but it's actually Wednesday!  Woo-hoo!  I love a short week.  On Sunday I posted my third edition of Tea Time.  May's theme was a Picnic in the Park.  Here's a closer look at what I wore to my picnic tea time.

mint pants: c/o LC Lauren Conrad | striped shirt: American Eagle
jean jacket: American Eagle | belt: Old Navy (similar)
sandals: LC Lauren Conrad |watch: Target | ring: Stella & Dot (similar)

I love a good picnic!  The picnic basket in these pictures has witnessed many-a-picnics in its lifetime and it's still going strong.  At this particular photo shoot, the basket was actually in use, it was not just a prop.  On Mother's Day my family and I drove out to visit my sister in Grand Rapids and we thought we would avoid the crowds and long waits of a restaurant in downtown GR.  Plus a picnic lunch is more fun anyway!

On a different note, many thanks to Grace of A Southern Drawl for awarding me the Sunshine Award.  So sweet of her!

Happy short week!

  7. I love that we both used picnic baskets in our photos, but yours wasn't just a prop! I love pairing a striped tee with the denim jacket.

    Thanks again for featuring me and congrats on the award :)

    1. No, unfortunately I don't know Lauren Conrad personally. She ran a blogger contest on her site a few months ago and I was a finalist so I was gifted clothing from her LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's line to wear and style on my blog. I said "c/o" to give that item of clothing credit as a gift received from the LC Lauren Conrad brand. :)

  20. Oh, I LOVE a picnic! And I love my picnic basket, even though it's REALLY HEAVY. Which I figure is ok - I get a work out before I plop down on a blanket and consume... :)
