Is there anything more quaint and youthful than an afternoon picnic? I think not! Picnics make for good, wholesome fun and it’s a shame my friends and I don’t have picnics more often. I mean, the last time I went to one was in 2008 (when I still had dark, curly hair and still wore flipflops in the city eep).
Sam, Sanya, and I took advantage of the long weekend and organized a little picnic on Monday. Originally, we were supposed to have it at Parks and Wildlife just outside Diliman but it was a bit too rundown and crowded with children so we ended up at the UP Sunken Garden.
Sam’s text message read: Sanya said picnic-wear! I have no idea what that means. Floral, frilly dresses? Oversized hats?
This bag I picked out at the Accessorize All About Bags event is a new favorite. Florals and polka dots (and houndstooth!) are my favorite patterns; florals because they’re so pretty and feminine, polka dots because they can be super cute and fun. In the past, I wore my Cath Kidston red polka dot bag with practically every outfit. Unfortunately, I had to retire it so I’m glad for this “replacement”. It’s not as loud but it’s just how I like my bags aka a contrast to any outfit! I can’t stand matchy-matchy things. Plus, it’s roomy enough to hold my dSLR, lunch container, wallet, and make-up kit!
Here are more photos from the picnic:
It was basically a hipster picnic with my friends in the presence of a hipster extraordinaire.
