summer picnic

We celebrate our nephew's 2nd birthday with a pirate-themed picnic party!

This past Sunday, our oldest sissy threw a super adorable birthday celebration for our nephew, Devereaux, better known as Devsyboo. His new favorite show on Disney Junior is Jake & The Neverland Pirates, so the theme was based around that. We gathered at Reese's Retreat at Brookside Park in Pasadena, a pirate themed playground with an ample amount of shaded picnic tables.

In keeping with the theme, we wore black and white outfits while our sister supplied pirate hats and mustaches. Sissy #2 wore a white cotton peasant blouse from eShakti to stay cool in that day's heat. A lovely embroidered blouse, she was able to customize this top to her height, size and style. While she loved the idea of the original embroidery offered, she had the option to remove a few patches of embroidery with the final product being a crisp, cool lightweight peasant blouse perfect for those warm summer days. Paired with distressed cut-off shorts, this made for a trendy but comfortable picnic outfit. 

Sissy #1 opted for a more bohemian look, wearing paisley print shorts with fringe hem detail and gladiator sandals. A huge trend for summer, the gladiator sandals aren't for everyone but when worn with a flowy dress or chic shorts, it's a fashion forward look to try.
