The Best Picnic Blankets this Summer

12 December 2016

The Best Picnic Blankets this Summer

I’m at the point in my life now where I need a good picnic blanket! There have been numerous times where Ive gone to the park on a whim or down to the beach and forgotten to bring something to sit on. These days you don’t have to settle for the same old chequered picnic blanket you used to see your mum and dad using. There are so many stylish options on the market and a print thats perfect for everyone.

Here are some of my favourite finds this Summer!

Murph and Murph

The Rock Rug collection is the first release of neoprene picnic blankets for Murph and Murph featuring original prints from Rottnest Island (an island 20km off the Western Australian Coast). Its a place where I and most other West Aussies have spent a lot of time during our summer holidays growing up.

Murph and Murph Picnic Blankets $220

 Each blanket is 2m x 1.4m in size and made of a single sheet of super soft neoprene – and better still they are machine washable!

Basil Bangs

Basil Bangs are widely known for their Outdoor products and most famously their iconic umbrellas. They have now added the Love Rug to their range which is a 1.8m water repellant outdoor polyester canvas, which can easily be wiped to keep your rug clean with minimal fuss.

Basil Bangs Love Rugs $155

Sunny Life

Sunny Life have made a name for themselves for everything Summery and they are doing it bright! Those blow up flamingos and swans you have seen everywhere last Summer are part of their range. But they don’t just do inflatables, they make just about every item you would need for the best Summer ever including Beach radios, Croquet sets, Bocce, outdoor plates and of course Picnic Blankets!

Sunny Life Picnic Blankets $89.95

Country Road

The Portsea Picnic blanket By Country Road is a bit more conservative and comes in a pewter grey. It rolls up into a clever carrier and is perfect for someone who doesn’t like to splash big prints around and prefers something simple.

Stripes

I have a fair bit of stripes in my wardrobe, actually I have a lot of stripes in my wardrobe!! Over the past 2 years stripes have become my go to print whether it be playing it safe with denim or lately even clashing it with leopard!

It surely is a print that you cant go wrong with and there are so many different variations its easy to see how one could become stripe obsessed!! Every time I go to a buying appointment I cant resist a stripe and this Zoe Karssen one caught my eye. I love the loose boxy fit of the tee and its shape fits perfectly with the First Base boyfriend shorts.

Leopard Print Love

Leopard Print Love

Having some serious Leopard Print Love at the moment for the new Zoe Karssen print! What I love most about Leopard print is there are so many variations that you can never really have too much in your wardrobe. Gone are the days where it was a tacky look, now its street cool!

Here we have paired it back with the latest denim from First Base. This is the first season the Aussie brand has done denim and they have kicked off their first range with two denim styles. The Low Slung boyfriend style jean and the boyfriend denim shorts. Add a pair of slides and you are good to go!
