Barbecue Wear for Magnificent 7th!

Magnificent 7th header

Welcome back to the Magnificent 7th Challenge! 

We post on the 7th of each month, and the aim of the challenge is to create an outfit to fit the theme, using clothes from our wardrobes, and yes that does mean digging deep into the depths and finding those long lost clothes! Hopefully one of us won’t end up in Narnia, but you never know with a blogger's wardrobe!

This month’s theme is what to wear when going to a barbecue. 

I have a clear idea of what I do and don’t want in an outfit for a barbecue.
  • A dress, something of a day to evening style as those are the normal barbecues I tend to go to.
  • Something that looks good, but is still comfortable.  A bodycon dress is not the ideal thing here if you are going to be eating quantities of meat and bread!
  • Something patterned.  I am a clumsy gal and invariably get some form of sauce on me.  Obviously you try and remove the stain at the time, but what normally happens with me is that you can still see traces of it, in the most visible places.  With something patterned, you can hide your clumsy mishaps!
So with the above in mind, here is what I chose.





The dress is from @So_Fab_Clothing at +Very.co.uk 
Cardigan from +Next 
Necklace from handmade stall at Skipton Market!

What do you wear to a barbecue?
