Outfit for Summer Barbecues: Non-short Wearers Ensemble

May 29, 2008


One of my favorite things about summer is having a backyard barbecue with friends. This summer is no exception, I will be crawfishing and cracking crab shells all summer long. Barbecuing and summer parties are times when we can give the stilettos and couture dresses a breather. Summer is about comfort and I for one refuse to stand up all day hanging out with friends in pumps, wedges, stilettos or platforms. Here is a cute look for summer that will leave you looking stunning. I chose a shorts ensemble for my summer barbecue. Remember that shorts are not meant for everyone so if you don’t feel comfortable, simply go for a dress or skirt.

For those of us with junk in the trunk, here is a cute dress ensemble for your barbecue soiree with friends. I chose this multicolored cotton dress from Antik Batik and paired it with Mystique sandals with jewels. Accessories take this outfit from a 5 to a 10. I added a London Blue Topaz Emerald-Cut Ring by Sultana, Erica Weiner Sparrow Earrings and oversized rounded frames by Louis Vuitton.
