Summer Prints

    Beyond Basic Blog Mod Cloth Flamingo Dress Summer Style Picnic Ideas

    The summer heat has definitely been coming out full force this year. I’m so glad that it’s finally time to bring out those summer dresses and short shorts. These past few weeks have been nothing but long summer days so I decided to get some use out of this new picnic basket and went out for an afternoon in the sun.

It’s such a great place to have a BBQ or a picnic. While you do need to get there early if you want a spot under the shade, my favorite spot is as close to the water. I love hanging out by the dock and checking out all the wildlife in the area.

I was excited to find this cute flamingo dress by ModCloth. It was so hard deciding on one since they have so many great summer prints this season like this gorgeous blue floral maxi dress, this adorable cactus embroidered skirt or this fun and fresh watermelon print dress. This olive romper and these high waisted shorts are also great selections for an upcoming 4th of July BBQ!
