Recently Spotted: Chevron Picnic Basket

Warmer weather is finally upon us.  Wahoo!  While Briana has been enjoying warm weather for at least two months now (seriously, I was wearing shorts in early March when I went on spring break), I have been riding out Polar Vortex after Polar Vortex since 2013.  BUT, finally thank the good Lord, we're about to hit a week with temps in the high seventies and eighties.  Bring on the spray tans, flip flops, patio sittin', and most importantly produce season (we <3 berries and fried green tomatoes!).  While I'm not one to sit and bake in the sun (mostly due to a complete lack of melanin in my skin and a deep fear of wrinkles), I do love being outside at sunset for jazz in the park at the D.C. sculpture garden, movies under the stars, and heading to the drive in movie theater.  Aaaaaaall of which could benefit from this super cute chevron picnic basket I spotted at C.Wonder.

Isn't it adorable?  Oprah evidently thought so too and featured it in a recent edition of O Magazine.  The basket comes with four sets of utensils, plates, cups, and cloth napkins, as well as, a chevron print blanket. Although the price is a bit steep, you can usually get 20% off for signing up for emails and they also run store wide sales every month.  I found C.Wonder on ebates.com, so your purchase would qualify for cash back too.  We have a C.Wonder at Tysons Corner Mall and I love popping in there to check out their sale rack for fun gifts and clothing.  I checked it out in person and I would love to have this basket for Mr. 3 and me.  Wouldn't it be great to stop at a deli or Whole Foods and have a cook free date night with your significant other...or take sangria and hang out with your girlfriends!  While I will probably wait and hope it goes on super sale in a few months, I'm so excited for summer I will probably create my own "basket" with a beach towel and an igloo cooler.  Anyone else as excited for summer as me?

PS - I must bookmark this post to refer to when D.C. turns into a swampy hot mess starting about July 4th through Labor Day.  My excitement tends to lessen a bit after the humidity makes my hair go flat and I go straight into "glisten mode" as soon as I walk outside...even at 8 PM.  

This post was not sponsored by C.Wonder, I simply love this picnic basket and think it's so fun.  All opinions are my own.
