    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.

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?
