    Here at R29, we love any excuse to turn things up a notch — whether it be summer BBQs, date night, or just a simple afternoon brunch. We're always looking for the perfect outfit that will take any rendezvous to the next level, especially during the much-loved summer months. But, we gotta remember that it's not always about the clothes. Take, for example, the simple weekend picnic — we heart any activity that lets us drink and dine al fresco, and, bonus, we can show off our maxi dresses, too. To turn up the chic level on your next blanketed meal, grab one of these on-point picnic baskets that we've painstakingly (actually it was kinda fun!) picked out. From classic wicker to a full-on utilitarian kit (complete with wine cooler!), our pics have everything you need to amp up your next outdoor meal. Meet you Wicker (hehe) Park?
