One of my favorite things about spring? Picnic weather! My favorite picnic spot in Nashville has to be Centennial Park. My husband and I had our very first date there 12 years ago and since then we go a few times a year to enjoy the spring sunshine, flowers, and 70-degree temps before Nashville’s awful humidity hits.
Today I’m going to share what to wear for a picnic date at the park. This shoot was so much fun and I’m obsessed with how the photos turned out!
Spring Style: What to Wear for a Picnic Date at the Park
Keep It Comfortable
You’re going to be sitting on a picnic blanket on the ground so you definitely want to dress in something comfortable. I love this Sea Dress because not only is it a gorgeous color for spring, but it’s literally the most comfortable dress in my closet. I can sit cross-legged or lay on my back without being limited.
Wear Something on the Bottom
Like I said above, you’re on the ground during a picnic so you want to keep your lady bits covered. Under my dresses, I almost always have on a pair of bike shorts. They cover everything that needs to be covered and aren’t bulky under clothing. You could always forego a dress and wear something more comfortable like an activewear set or AGOLDE denim shorts and a tee.
Don’t Forget the Accessories
If you’re going to be in the sun, I always recommend wearing sunglasses and a hat. A wide-brim hat is always my hat of choice during a picnic because you’re not constantly squinting and provides a lot of coverage from the sun. Of course, flats are recommended (like these Sam Edelman flats) but if you want to dress up, wear a chunky heel like Loeffler Randall, so you can walk easier on the grass.
