As soon as I spotted this cute Parisian tee, I knew I needed an occasion to wear it immediately. Please don’t tell me I’m the only one who plans activities around an outfit choice?! I’m a big fan of a solid charcuterie board and drinking in the middle of the day, so Vanessa and I hopped over to Marie Gabrielle Gardens for a French picnic.

When it comes to arranging the perfect charcuterie board, you can’t just throw cheese and crackers on a plate and call it a day. I like adding a variety of cheeses, meats, fruits and sweet treats so there’s something everyone can nibble on and enjoy. For drinks, rosé, white wine or a yummy sangria are always crowd pleasers.

A picnic can be such a fun thing to do in the fall when the weather starts to cool down. Other fun fall activities I’m looking forward to are tailgating, apple picking and eating an unhealthy amount of candy corn (does that count as an activity?). What’s on your fall bucket list? xx
