What do you think of when I say the word barbeque? Sun? The smell of burgers grilling? Beer? Shorts and tees? How about if I say Summer evening barbeque? The same things? Hmmm, so how are you going to feel when the suns goes down, there’s a distinct nip in the air and you’re sitting huddled under a coat that you’ve hastily borrowed from the host?
I think we’ve all been there and we’ve all done it – the sun is shining, so we throw on our best BBQ outfit and head out the door without a thought for the chilly evening to come. The answer? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – layers!
So when an invitation to a Summer evening barbeque dropped through my letterbox I knew just what to do. By styling white capris with a biscuit coloured, long-line jacket and pretty lace shawl I managed to stay cosy yet cool all evening.
Shawl – Bought in Portugal / Sandals – Bought in Portugal / Capris – M & S / Jacket – Monsoon / All Jewellery – Gifts From Andrew / Unbelievably Long Toes – I’m not sure, but I think I was a bat in a former life
Do you layer up, or do you wing it and hope for the best? Do share your thoughts in the comments section.
