Create a thrifted look for a picnic date

Good afternoon,

Lately, the weather has been so unpredictable in Paris. One minute it's warm and sunny, the next it's cold and raining. We don't know what to wear. We had a little heatwave mid-June/early July. Since I didn't know how long it would last, I shot content back to back. I went to parc de Bagatelle in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. It's located in a remote area which is perfect for photoshoots. I went there on the hottest day of the week (35 degrees Celsius/95 degrees Fahrenheit). It was so hot that I even got tan lines on my shoulders.

If you want to organize picnics in Paris, you either go to the banks of the river Seine or parks. When I plan an outfit for outdoor gatherings comfort is most definitely my priority. I have created a feminine thrifted look that requires minimal effort for a picnic date.

I have been looking for a gingham dress for the longest time. I have finally found one on a resell platform. As much as I love bright colors, I have to admit that I have a soft spot for pastel tones. When I saw this baby blue dress, I knew I had to buy it. It's in perfect condition, the girl who sold it to me only wore it twice. The midi dress is stretchy, I can sit comfortably on the grass or on an bench. The slit reveals a little bit of skin without showing too much. It's originally from H&M and I got it for only 6 euros.

I have paired the dress with my favorite pair of mules (not thrifted). The low block heel is exactly what I need to walk on the grass. I found this pair of clear sandals in a Parisian boutique near Opéra Garnier. They cost me 14 euros. I finished off my look with my go-to summer bag (not thrifted). I bought it not so far from République train station for 12 euros.

Now I think I'm all set for my picnic date. Keep scrolling to see more details of this thrifted look.
