Earlier this week I had gingham print on my mind. I love how youthful and feminine it is. Since gingham and picnics go hand in hand, I've been thinking a lot about picnics. This week's Perfect Presents series features items that are perfect for picnics. I am hoping to go to Off the Grid in the Presidio this weekend if the weather is nice.

The last time I was at Off the Grid it was Memorial Day weekend for my brother-in-law's birthday. The weather was perfect-- sunny with a nice breeze. We hung out all day from 10:00am until 5:00pm. We were having so much fun that I didn't realize that I had gotten a lot of sun. Luckily I was wearing a hat so my face was covered but my hands and my feet got burned! It was hands down the weirdest sun burn I have ever gotten. Since I was wearing jeans and slip on sneakers, I had about four inches of my ankles exposed and they were burned! Definitely not something I needed right before the Perfect 10 SF Launch party where lots of shoe pictures were taken! It was pretty funny though.

Now I have learned my lesson and will reapply sunscreen (if it ever is nice again on a Sunday. I feel like it's always windy and overcast for the OTG Picnic). I hope you enjoy these perfect presents!
