Backyard BBQ Stylish Monday

collage of fashion bloggers

It is actually the intention that we by now have a bbq in our backyard almost every weekend during this season. Unfortunately, it has been a drizzly summer so far and the bbq’s we have given can be counted on 1 hand so far. We love to have a bbq in our backyard, we love to spoil our family and friends with good food and drinks. But what do you actually wear for a bbq? 

Stylish Monday is created out of a Facebook group of Life and Style bloggers. Every month we interpret a theme in our own way, fashionable wise of course. It’s a fun way to be creative with clothing and accessories. And to see how other women interpret a theme chosen by someone else. It is a fabulous fashionable way to create something beautiful with other bloggers. 

What do I wear for a backyard bbq

favorite summer dress

I myself often wear a long dress for such an evening. Firstly, you have less chance of being stung by the mosquitoes. And in the evening it usually cools down a bit and then a long dress is very nice. Preferably also a slightly wider dress or one that is a bit forgiven, because well, with a bbq I always eat too much! This pre loved dress is really great. Very elastic but also quite thick, so ideal for a person who is always feeling cold like me.

Let’s see what my girlfriends wear to a bbq!

We had a backyard barbecue at my neighbor’s house a few weeks back, so I photographed what I actually wore to her house…this amazing new tie dye dress that has been in constant rotation since I got it back in May. I am also sharing swimsuit photos in my post…do pop by my blog to see it all!

Nothing screams summer more than barbecuing with family and friends. ‘Tis the season for hot dogs, hamburgers, and yummy side dishes. So much fun! And you know what’s even more fun? Deciding on what to wear to a barbecue – yes, it’s a thing. Just ask my fashionable fashionistas because this is what we chose as this month’s style collab. Backyard barbecue-style apparently is a real thing – who knew? So let’s see what backyard barbecue-style means to these stylish sisters. This should be interesting!!

This year the 4th of July fell on a Sunday, so I created this patriotic look to wear both to church and then a Backyard BBQ.

The hubs and I grill out every single weekend in the summer…heck, we grill out almost all year long! My typical backyard barbecue outfit usually consists of a swimsuit & cover-up, but just in case we have actual company over I would probably wear my fav Bermuda shorts and a cute top, like this one from Old Navy… I love the smocking detail.

maxi summer dress

Even in the summertime, California evenings can get chilly, which is why for every sundress I own, there must be a coordinating piece to layer on when the sun goes down. See more on how I style one of my favorite maxi dresses, for a day-to-night backyard BBQ ready look, on the blog.

Backyard BBQ in Alaska means potluck and all meat and fish you eat was killed by one of your friends. When you are not a hunter or into fishing you bring whatever grows in your yard. Dressing wise it means combat or hiking boots, jeans and a tightly woven shirt to not become dinner for the mosquitoes when the BBQ  is in the evening. When the event is in the afternoon, a skirt like I wear in the photo is fine.

This cotton jumpsuit is super comfortable and looks quite basic ..until you see the back! The sequin parrot gives guests something to look at while I’m tending to the BBQ!

Julie of Fashion Trends and Friends

Serving up some white scalloped shorts and a gingham top with ruffled shoulders for some backyard BBQ fun!  Shorts over 50 (well I actually just turned 60)…why not?  Gingham is always a great choice in the summer and says backyard summer fun!  Wear what you love and feel confident in and you’ll always look amazing!

Bbq style to me means a thrifted striped dress and plaid bag that is thrifted too.  Sneakers are a must too while at a bbq.

Nina of  Sharing a Journey

Hosting a summer BBQ is one of the joys of summer.  From choosing just the right recipes, tableware and what to wear.  Today I am sharing BBQ favorites including an airy hostess dress everyone looks great in.

yellow maxi dress  

This month’s Stylish Mondays calls for BBQ attire- and this is exactly what I’d style up for enjoying a cook out amongst friends and family.  Summer and sunshine want me in bright yellow! Love me some bright happy colour under a large brim hat, cool drinks, great company and delicious food- I’m ready!

We hope you enjoyed our backyard BBQ outfits!

    A Maxi dress for a barbecue is a fab idea, Nancy! Any protection I can get from mosquitos is welcome, lol! I need to start wearing sneakers with dresses – such a cute look! xoxo

    Although we do have a small barbecue, our garden doesn’t really offer the opportunity for a large gathering. Family bbq’s are therefore usually held at my stepson’s. What I’m wearing for the occasion does depend upon the weather, but a maxi dress or skirt is always a strong contender. And yes, they do have to be forgiving … Your maxi dress looks absolutely perfect to me, and it’s gorgeous too! xxx

    Ooh, I just love that fun bathing suit, Shelbee! The kitty print bottoms and the feline detailing on the bra-top are the best! Good for Jeff for pushing his comfort zone and getting proper swim trunks (love that pattern), and your son’s shark print is awesome (good flipping too!).

    Thanks so much for the link-party!

    Wow, what a broad bunch of interpretations!! I love it. From lacy, feminine dresses to denim shorts and cute top. Which would probably be my choice for a BBQ at my home. If I was going elsewhere for a cookout, I might wear a sundress. Thankful we don’t have to worry about mosquitoes much around here but with the rain we’ve had lately, we are seeing more flies.

    Everyone looks great. Fun post.
