THE LOCATION: One of my favorite things about the summertime is gathering with family and friends for a little grill-worship. This post is from your typical pass-the-mustard-please summer BBQ. It was one of those outings when day sulks into night. As you hide under the moon and stars with your company, you’ve cemented another summer memory to keep close for those blustery Washington, DC winter days.
THE LOOK: As the temperatures rise, so do the hemlines. My What to Wear to a BBQ formula is pretty simple:
Flowy Sundress: Capture those all too infrequent cooling breezes with a summer tone, flowy sundress.
Sky High Wedges: Let’s be honest, nothing is more comfortable than a pair of wedges. Find one in a neutral tone and elongate your legs to the peak. My wedges are from Zara in Milan, Italy.
Easy Handbag: Make sure your easy handbag is lightweight and subtle. You want to be a comfortable social butterfly. This is not a #powerwoman conference; we don’t need a handbag worth its weight in your rent check. My wicker metallic handbag is from Carpisa in Florence, Italy.
Easy Accessories: Wear a couple of gorgeous pieces that don’t weigh down and stick to your skin in the sun. Here I am wearing pearls from Bloomingdale’s and bangles from Beijing, China.
So there you have it. Shop the world. Find a rooftop. Grill something the tastes like summer. Smile.
