Outfit for Summer Barbecues

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.

Here I chose turqouise shorts by Theory and paired it with a Diabless Tian Beaded Racer Back Tank, Pedro Garcia Sandals, Christian Lacroix Antique Matador Jacket Printed Silk Square Scarf, Pantera Framed Leather Clutch, Tevrow + Chase Cotton Puff Sleeve Cardigan, and David Yurman Silver Ice Turquoise Bracelet.

Make sure you keep accessories to a minimum and avoid anything with intricate strings that will tan easily. Of course make sure you use some sunscreen and party in moderation.
