Favorite Wears: Summer Cookouts

This past weekend we attended 3 cookouts! It was the perfect way to start summer and only the beginning of all the season's get togethers, bbqs and patio parties to come.  It's one of my most favorite things to do (with kids and without alike).  Getting dressed for it, I always want to be comfortable and casual, yet put together. This past weekend I gave this new jumpsuit a run, and loved how comfortable it was (the only pitfall of jumpsuits in general is going to the bathroom, but this is a simple tie, so easy to assemble and disassemble alone).

We love to host people, but also so enjoy getting out of our abode for other's homes. Never wanting to go empty handed, we hit up CostCo for good wine (keep it on hand!) and I usually attempt to make a side dish or dessert to bring.  My baking (well, cooking as a whole) skills could really use some work, but I was so excited something I tried for the first time this past weekend worked. I made lemon bars from scratch following along this recipe - and let me tell you... yum!

Once summer hits, I'm lemon everything (lemonade, bread, bars, pancakes, etc!) and the jumpsuit is proving to be my go-to piece to wear.  What dishes and clothing are you loving for this summer's cookouts and gatherings?
