Summer Picnics Rooftop Style

This summer is turning out different than any other summer I have experienced in New York but I am lucky enough to have a patio and I have been making the best of it. One of my favorite things to do is sit outside on a beautiful day with a glass of wine and a a platter filled with some snacks. 

I received these items from My Fashion Crate a seasonal subscription box for conscious fashionistas and could not wait to enjoy all of these items. Every season you get to enjoy curated products from emerging designers. The box includes 3-5 items including tops, dresses, jewelry, accessories, gift cards or beauty items. 

For the summer box I received:

Poppy & Sage- Camilla Bag
A circle rattan straw bag. Poppy & sage is a sustainable fashion brand, the Camilla bag is handmade in Bali by women artisans.

Area Stars- Bahia Dress
A company founded to empower women of all backgrounds, styles & shapes with inspiration from travels around the globe. Area Stars works with the finest natural organic cottons and silks and employ artisans from villages in India. 

Nailmatic- Pure Color
This plant based, eco friendly nail polish in pastel coral is the perfect tone for summer. 

Carolyn Hearn Designs- Loved Necklace
This Rose Quartz pendant necklace made by Carolyn Hearn. Carolyn started creating jewelry as a way to express her ideas in college and the company quickly grew from there. 

ADORAtherapy- Blissful Room Boost
Aroma perfumes that will lift and shift your mood allowing you to be your best self! 

This dress is absolutely beautiful and when paired with the woven straw bag it created the perfect outfit for a picnic. 

The art of a food board:

1. Arrange food in patterns 
2. choose an assortment of food, for this particular board I chose cheese, crackers, triscuits & nuts
3. Be inventive! Throw together what you like and see where it takes you! For more inspo check out my Fashionable Hostess board on Pinterest!
