Fashion Friday: GET BUILT and 5 ways to get your fashion and fun on while you picnic!
It’s summertime and the living is easy- as in- it is WAY too hot to cook in your kitchen, much less sit at your sticky table and eat indoors. Summer weather is the quintessential opportunity to grab your baguettes, a cooler with fresh fruit, yogurt or cheese sticks for the kidlets, Brie for the adults and pack yourselves a lil picnic. And since it is Fashion Friday- I had to share a MOST fabulous and fashionable way to get your picnic on! This summer, BUILT will celebrate its 10th Anniversary and is celebrating with the launch of their 10th Anniversary Limited Edition Collection. The collection introduces their new print Stripe No. 10 and is outfitted on BUILT’s best-sellers such as the Gourmet Getaway Lunch Tote, Wine Totes and iPad and tech sleeves. Of course, a BUILT collection would not be complete without something a little unexpected, so the team at BUILT has created something very special — the Convertible Picnic Bag!
The Convertible Picnic Bag is made in their special anniversary print and has everything you need to make entertaining a breeze. This compact bag includes wines glasses, plates, flatware, and napkins for a party of 4 plus a place to keep wine bottles secure, a cork screw and bottle openers.
