What to Wear: Backyard BBQ

what to wear to a backyard BBQ, bbq outfitssource

Ever since I picked up the Bon Appétit grilling issue at the airport last month, I’ve been day-dreaming about throwing an incredible backyard BBQ of some sort. The mouth-watering photos of grilled pizzas and butterflied fish with bright salsas really got my party wheels turning.

I have day-dreams like this quite often. I really do love to entertain and host parties, but I rarely get the chance to throw parties. Maybe that’s my fault, but the real down fall for us is space. Our dining room only fits four people and even that is a bit tight, and a backyard BBQ? I’ll have to keep dreaming. All we have is a patio and a shared grill space on the 9th floor.

So for now I’ll just cross my fingers that one of my friends that actually has outdoor space will invite us over for a festive backyard party.

So, what to wear?!

For backyard or at home get-togethers, my go-to is festive, but comfortable attire. A simple dress, like this gingham one, paired with wedges (this pair also comes in tan and orange) or flats. Pumps are a no-no unless you’ve volunteered to aerate your host’s lawn.

Tote bags (loving this straw one) are perfect for summer. You can throw in a swimsuit, just in case the BBQ turns into a pool party, a hostess gift, lip gloss and sunnies!
