How cute is this picnic! On the first full day of the rewardStyle conference, Banana Republic hosted an “Uptown Chic” picnic at the Shake Shack. It was so much fun to sit outside in an adorable picnic setting in the middle of downtown Dallas!

Banana Republic set up the cutest picnic tables with floral centerpieces in the outdoor eating area of the Shack Shack. There were also cute little Adirondack chairs set up in groups of two for intimate socializing. If I had this much room in my backyard, I would totally throw a picnic like this every weekend. It was so cute and fun!

I have heard of the Shack Shack through Instagram posts which pop up in my feed, but I had never been to one to before. Apparently we are getting one here in the Bay Area very soon! It will be located in Campbell. I cannot wait! Let me just tell you, this was one of the yummiest hamburgers I have ever eaten. The french fries were to-die-for too! I enjoyed a cheeseburger while some of my blogger friends enjoyed the crispy chicken burger. I understand the chicken was equally delicious. Next time I have the opportunity to eat at the Shake Shack, I want to try the chicken! Yum!

Since I knew ahead of time that Banana Republic would be hosting this event. I planned my outfit accordingly. This skirt and top are from Banana Republic’s current collection and they are so perfect for spring and summer. I know I will get a lot of use out of this skirt for daytime events, and church, this season. In addition, this black flutter sleeve top will also look amazing with jeans, denim shorts, white pants, and more! These are such versatile, staple wardrobe pieces. Love!

Banana Republic was so nice to us! In addition to serving up a beautiful setting and delicious food, we all got to pick out a scarf. I decided to tie mine “Melrose Place” style. I was in a 90’s mood. haha What do you think? Bring back the “Melrose Place” scarf trend? I’m thinking, let’s do it!

One last thing about this outfit, remember how I mentioned earlier I forgot to pack a few things? Well. . . this outfit was supposed to be worn with black espadrille wedges, but I forgot to pack them. When I returned home, they were on the floor in my bedroom and I tripped over them bringing my suitcase in! haha I think these wedges look OK, but the black pair would have been perfect. Oh well, c’est la vie!

So tell me, have you tried Shake Shack? If so, are you a fan too? Secondly, what do you think of tying a scarf “Melrose Place” style? Yay or nay?

Thanks for stopping by!
