Guest Post: Shea from Bon Chic Bon Gastronomique

Hi What Kenz Wears readers, I’m Shea from Bon Chic Bon Gastronomique

Kenzie asked me to guest post for her while she’s on a vacation to celebrate her college graduation. I hope she’s having lots of fun right now, she deserves it!

When she suggested writing about my favorite summer activity, I jokingly told her it was napping. But I figured that wouldn’t make much of an outfit post, so I’m going with barbecues instead. I love getting together with friends in the summer and grilling out.

This is what I wore to an early summer get-together, when it was still cool enough for a scarf. I love wearing scarves, because they’re light-weight, but they keep you warm if it gets chilly at night. (Now that it’s nearly July here in Kansas where I live, I’ll probably leave the scarf at home—it’s getting too hot and humid for that!) I was coming from work, so I changed from wedges to comfy flat sandals, ditched my AC-friendly jacket for the floral scarf, and I was ready for some hamburgers and hot dogs.

I don’t know about you, but for me, half the fun of a barbecue is all the side dishes and desserts people bring. I love summery pasta salads, rich chocolaty brownies, not to mention cold beer. My current summer favorite is Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy; it’s so lemony and refreshing. Tell me, what do you enjoy most at a cookout?

Outfit details: stripe shirt: Old Navy; cropped khakis: Gap; flower earrings: gift shop in Hawaii; scarf: Old Navy, gift; sandals: Merona, Target

Also, happy Fourth of July and how perfect is this post for the holiday!? It's like we planned it or something (we didn't).
