Backyard BBQ Style

There’s nothing I look more forward to during the summer months than a good ‘ol fashion backyard barbecue with family and/or friends. I was lucky enough to host my own for Father’s Day at the beginning of the summer, and this past weekend we attended a cookout at my uncle’s house on Saturday and hosted our own get together with my in-laws on Sunday.

With the temperatures well into the 90’s – hello, sweat – and outrageous humidity levels, I knew a sundress was going to be my outfit of choice for being outside this weekend. I hadn’t yet had a chance to wear this LC Lauren Conrad dress from her Minnie Mouse collection, but I thought a family cookout was the perfect opportunity since the navy and white polka dots and gross grain ribbon detail just scream summer picnic to me. Complete with my favorite-of-the-moment white sandals and woven clutch, I was ready to stuff myself full of food and also keep cool.

    I so love the blue/white style and especially the stripes at the bottom of the dress – fantastic look and tornado/lack of sleep doesn’t phase you because you look great in the look! The clutch is so summery as well.
