We’ve almost made it through the week, and we’re determined not to let the weather get the best of us as we plan our weekend activities — especially when we’re gearing up for a relaxed night with someone special.
Our wallets don’t always allow us to savor the delicacies of the city’s best (and, ahem, most expensive) menues, so this weekend, we’ve decided to play chef and whip up a little picnic for our date night. (Who doesn’t love a good apron once in a while?) Considering that sitting on the ground is expected, we decided to curate a little outfit that is pretzel-style sitting friendly while giving your significant other just right view of your alluring ensemble.
Look picture perfect for your picnic date by sporting some of these affordable and accessible options!

We suggest picking one statement accessory and wearing daintier option like this lightweight cuff to balance the mega message.

Juggling a picnic basket and a basket is enough of handful. Sport a crossbody bag for extra ease.

We love unexpected touches. Here, a necklace modeled after scorpion tails is a fresh take and a welcome contrast to being overly girly (save that for the candlelit dinners).

Give yourself a little bit of a lift. With the stacked heel, you won't have to worry about teetering on painful stilettos -- and also won't awkwardly sink into the grass as you pick the perfect spot for your picnic.
