Friday's Fancies::Picnic Time

We're headed on a picnic this lovely Friday for Friday's Fancies.  Oh how I wish it were picnic weather around here.  Instead it's been pretty gloomy and rainy. This is the perfect post to brighten up my week.  I'm pretty sure any combination of J.Crew and Loren Hope would result in pure perfection. Add in Loeffler Randall, and I'm in swoon city.


Which bag would you prefer for a picnic in the park? The traditional Farmer's Market tote or the more modern Shopper? 

I'm headed home for the weekend so my sister and I can celebrate our birthday together!  It's on Sunday, but since we both have to get back to school we'll do most of the celebrating on Saturday.  As a huge fan of birthdays, often others' more than mine, I am very much so looking forward to the weekend.   Do you have anything fun planned this weekend?

As always linking up with {long distance loving}

I like the Zara one better, but I guess it's less practical, unless you give it to your guy to carry it ;)
Have an amazing B-day weekend! Hope it's fantastic! Lots of love!

I generally take my trader joe's bags on picnics soooo I'd say that either of these would do the trick.

I think a basic straw tote will get lots of use over the years! Love the LR sandals,..she is the best. That necklace is adorable!

That's a tough one I'd say the straw tote for a picnic- love those LR sandals!

What a pretty outfit! I think the straw tote is perfect for the occasion and for weekend strolls through a farmer's market. Have a wonderful birthday weekend!

Both cute, but I'd probably go for the Farmer's Market Tote! Love the dress you picked--that colour is one of my favourites! Hope you have a wonderful, birthday weekend!:)
