Now that Summer is officially upon us, I try to spend as much time outside as possible. I think partly because it makes me a bit nostalgic of my childhood, when being inside on a Summer day was considered a sin (or punishment, which was mostly the case for me). I’m lucky enough to have a couple of fun girlfriends who were totally down to go strawberry picking with me over the weekend. My sister, Lauren, and I went blueberry picking once and thought it was literally the best thing ever (I think partly because it made us feel like Pocahontas), so I was equally excited for strawberry picking.
Of course, the Pinterest part of my brain wanted to do something über fancy with my strawberries, but since I’ve been infatuated with infused water lately, this ultimately became their purpose: Mint + Strawberry + Cucumber water. I was inspired by this recipe, but used Mint instead of Basil because well, Kroger was out. I did want something that could sooth the stomach and it ended up being a great substitute.
The link to my strawberry picking ensemble is here, although I’m not sure I recommend this denim romper for those of you strawberry picking in NC. It’s been two years and I still forget how hot it gets here! If you’re in a less humid location or want it for another occasion, this romper is so cute and comfortable! Definitely one of my best purchases this season!
