After almost two straight weeks with at least a portion of the day surrendering to rain, the clouds finally parted and the sun was shining on Paris last Tuesday. Just in time for May Day, Parisians were out celebrating the first of May (a holiday everyone takes part in here) and enjoying the lovely weather. One of the most common places that the Parisians escape to is the plethora of parks scattered throughout the city. As picnic season grows near, it is essential to have an appropriate outfit for the day’s events.

I spotted this Fashionista in the Jardin du Luxembourg, a popular park located in the 6thArrondissement. She stood out in a crowd of skinny jeans and T-shirts, sporting bare legs and a neat high bun. Mixing a casual cotton shirt with a slouchy cream colored sweater gives the look a laid back feel while her printed silk shorts exude springtime chic. The high-waisted short is flattering on anyone, especially when paired with a looser fitting top. They are a versatile item to own because you can dress them up or pair them with an edgy pair of boots, like this Fashionista did. Oversized sunnies and a big boho bag finish the look off for a perfect day in the park.

If you want to prepare for picnic season with a pair of silky, pajama-like shorts take a look at this yellow printed pair from Topshop. To dress in a springy vibe, try pairing these shorts from ASOS with a pastel crop top. If you are really looking for a pair that will wow your fellow park goers, take a look at Stella McCartney's driving shorts. Happy picnicking!
