The Prettiest Swiss Dot Picnic Dress

Swiss Dot Dress from Duffield Lane by Annie Fairfax

My husband Robin and I love to take any opportunity we can to eat outside and have a picnic. The warm, pleasant weather in Michigan is so short, that we just want to make the most of it whenever we are able to do so. Simply packing a few portable sides, a shared entrée and drinks are all you need to take with you, along with a nice blanket to sit on.

There’s something so therapeutic about just relaxing outdoors, getting fresh air and a bit of sunshine, and enjoying some great food with a loved one, or alone with a book. When we visited Mackinac Island earlier this summer, we joined the Mission Point Picnic Society by ordering a boxed lunch from Boxwood Café and taking a couple of Mission Point’s adorable bicycles out for a spin around the island to find the perfect spot to picnic.

I love wearing something simple, light, and airy, especially when it’s a hot, sunny day, so this lovely Swiss dot number was exactly what I was looking for, and checked all of my boxes when it comes to what I like to wear. From Duffield Lane, a Michigan made, nautical brand I’ve mentioned numerous times before, including here, here, and here, this gorgeous, lined maxi is perfect for picnicking, a day at the market, brunch with friends, a walk along the beach, or dining al fresco with loved ones. Once again, Duffield Lane delivers a gorgeous, inspiringly comfortable and refreshing garment that I will be able to wear year after year.
