picnic + happy weekend!


I try to picnic everyday in the summertime. I grab my food (usually take out or from the grocery) and head to the river, watch the sailboats, and usually swing on the swings. These snapshots were from a picnic I had with my friend Jenny the other day.


Things I still want to do this summer: Rent a row boat, swim in a river, pick peaches and blueberries, and go to the ocean. Do you know this blog from Portland called Summer Goals? It's quite lovely. Summer is so fleeting here, I spend a good portion of the winter dreaming of how I want to spend it So, I love their idea. Their blog has been made into a book and they are having a book launch on Saturday the 27th! You should go!


I have some really fun posts line up for next week! In the meantime, I've been blogging a lot for Babble. Here are a few of my posts:

5 albums I can't wait to listen to.

Apron dresses, scalloped shirts, and Liberty rompers? Yes, please!

10 must-have floral dresses.

New baby prams that look vintage. Oh my!

5 ways to stay cool for the rest of the summer! The rose water is my favorite tip.

25 Chic Bicycle Accessories.

Have the loveliest summer weekend. Thanks for reading Frolic! Talk to you Monday.

  1. so pretty! i love eating outdoors in the summer… it’s just nice to get outside for a bit during the workdays…

  2. What a beautiful picnic! Summer is fleeting here too. I’m not happy about it coming to an end all too soon. It’s been a very good one though. Happy weekend, Chelsea!

  3. I think I see my fave Kalamata olives in your salad, and now I’m hungry! When we lived in Idaho we would vacation each summer on the Oregon Coast – now we are in NC (and love it) but there is something so magical about the NW, wondering if it has something to do with those precious few days of summer? Thank you for the upcoming albums and the Summer Goals blog info. Have you heard Aloe Blacc? Completely swooning over him right now. New song “Green Lights” is awesome.

    Thank you for sharing such beauty! Have a great weekend!

  4. I have a favourite bench outdoors where I like to ‘picnic’ during my lunch break. Some days, it’s what gets me through the day …

    summer seems everlasting here in Australia, I don’t think I actually remember what a ‘fleeting’ summer feels like 🙂
