Street Style: What to Wear on a Chicnic

Jill Striped Retro Cami Dress
Florence Yellow Trim Handbag
Jewel Star Necklace (Blue/Red)

When I put this look together it reminded me of a picnic and then the word “chicnic” wedged its existence into my brain. I decided to look up this word and to my surprise, it exists!

Chicnic – which is also known as a fashionable picnic.

If you ask me, it sounds like an all girl picnic where we would all dress up, eat a summer salad and drink mimosas under an old oak tree, while swapping our latest diet secrets. Since I have never been to a chicnic, I imagine that the outfit above is what I would most likely wear to such an occasion.

Now, if I were given the opportunity to host a chicnic of my own, I would do it a little differently. Let’s remember, I am married with two children and finding the time to get away with all my girls would be heaven sent! So, let me tell you my idea of a chicnic, because if me and my girls are getting glammed up we are going to do it right! 

Instead of the park, we would head to Vegas. Instead of summer salads, we would hit up the buffet at the Bellagio. And instead of swapping diet secrets, we would swap dance moves at Tao nightclub! Unfortunately, for this particular Vegas dream chicnic, I do not have a readily available picture of the outfit I would wear. I guess it is something I will just have to follow up with in the near future!

Be strikingly chic,
