Chicest Picnic

Dress: Kiel James Patrick (This is a sample not available for sale yet. Similar) Shoes: Tommy Hilfiger (similar) Bag: Tory Burch ℅ Necklace: Kiel James Patrick Bracelets: Asha ℅, J.Crew Glasses: Karen Walker 

Last night Kiel and I attended the newportFILM screening of Dior and I by director Frédéric Tcheng at Doris Duke’s Rough Point estate and served as judges with Brenda Brock of Farmaesthetics for the “Chicest Picnic” contest. We had such a hard time selecting a winner as there were a good number of wonderfully elaborate picnic setups with lanterns, bear skin rugs, and decadent treats. I shared a few images of some of my favorites. We had a little extra help from Hudson and Lucian who looked adorable in our Kiel James Patrick Mr. Hinckley bow-ties. 

There are two more newportFILM outdoor screenings left this Summer. See the schedule here. (I should also mention that Dior and I was a very inspiring film. Tcheng did an amazing job of capturing the emotions and processes of Raf, new Creative Director of Dior, and team as they prepare to introduce Raf’s first haute couture collection for the iconic house.)
