The Quinta

For hot summer days when you never know where the day might take you, the Quinta Slide is the ultimate companion. For picnics taking place on grass, sand, or more rugged terrain, these slides can both handle it all while also accompanying you on long strolls or to last-minute dinner plans.

Boasting soft handwoven kidskin leather, a low square heel, and a memory foam-cushioned insole, The Quinta is relaxed yet refined all in one. Thanks to their chunky sole and casual feeling, these slides pair well with just about anything. Their superpower is effortlessly transforming formal/feminine pieces like voluminous dresses into beautifully understated looks.

Bold dressers who love color and pattern, opt for Black/Marfil, Dessert/Marfil, or Terracotta/White. For something more subdued, Black/Croc and Hazelnut/Black are both great options.

The Rio

To look instantly put together, casual, and fun, opt for The Rio. The Rio will take you from a dressy or casual afternoon picnic in the park to drinks afterward with ease thanks to their sleek, bare look. 

With a square toe, a leather link chain detail, and a toe ring strap, these sandals are anything but basic. Made entirely from surplus leather scraps from the cutting room floor, The Rio is our most sustainable style. The Rio pairs well with shorts, minis, and midis alike. This style is great for adding visual interest to simple outfits, while also making sexier outfits feel grounded and cool. 

Minimalists will love the practical nature of The Rio in Black or Chocolate/Hazelnut, while maximalists will appreciate Kiwi/Multi and Terracotta/Multi

The Eugenia

If the weather is cooling down or closed-toed shoes are more your speed, The Eugenia is the perfect solution. A modern interpretation of the classic mary jane flat, The Eugenia is incredibly versatile. This flat will take you from morning brunch to an afternoon picnic in style and comfort. 

Featuring kidskin leather, a square toe, angular topline, oval-shaped heel, and memory foam insole, The Eugenia is our forever go-to style. Pair this flat with summer trousers, shorts, slip dresses, or midi skirts for a refined feminine look. To play up a juxtaposition on shape/form pair The Eugenia with wide-leg jeans or voluminous dresses.

For the closet in need of reliable basics, look to The Eugenia in Black, Dessert, or Marfil. For those looking to add a statement piece, opt for Denim or Apio for a pop of color.

The Delfina

For those attending a dressy picnic affair or have plans afterward with no time to swap footwear look to The Delfina. The Delfina is provocatively bare while also adding elegance to any look. 

Crafted in kidskin leather with a 1.75-inch heel, delicate straps, and a square footbed The Delfina is a fan favorite. Pair this sandal with your favorite summer denim and dress or instantly dress up a pair of shorts and an unbuttoned shirt. 

Lovers of classics opt for The Delfina in Black, Hazelnut, or Marfil. The color-obsessed will fall for Denim.

The Mule

If your day in the sun involves traveling by foot to the picnic opt for The Mule. Inspired by traditional babouche slippers, The Mule emits refined style. 

With soft kidskin leather, a sleek cut-out upper, and an almond-shaped toe, The Mule is a great transitional shoe between seasons. Pair The Mule with ankle-cropped trousers, summer jeans, or a long summer dress for a casually cool look. 

Build up your wardrobe staples with The Mule in Black, Dessert, or Marfil

Our Best-Kept Picnic Tips

Comfort is key

Select your footwear and outfit with comfort and confidence in mind. There’s no time to change outfits or waste time fiddling with your look. Choose items that will transition seamlessly with you all day.

Don’t forget the speaker 

Set the mood with an inspired playlist. Check out these playlists: Indie Pop/Classic Tunes, Indie Pop/Alternative R&B, Classical/Jazz meet Italian/French

Remember the essentials

Every good picnic has a blanket for maximum comfort and lounge opportunities. Even better if you happen to have a stylish blanket like these from Minna.

Hydratation above all

A day in the sun calls for refreshingly cool sips. Make sure to pack a water bottle and something fun like a sparkling tonic or refreshing summer wine like these easily transportable canned wines from the McBride Sisters.

Snacks are a must

The best gathering involves great conversation over delectable nibbles. You can never go wrong with a baguette, assortment of cheese, fruits, and vegetables.

Pack the sunscreen

Don’t let a sunburn wreck a great day. Pack the sunscreen and remember to reapply. We love Bolden

Bring the hat

A great hat is a must for a long day in the sun. Janessa Leone and Bagtazo have options for every style.
