I never considered myself much of a picnic kind of gal until summer 2020. In the wake of the pandemic, going outside became a luxury, and dining al fresco became a necessity. Besides getting some much needed fresh air, I found picnics in the park were great for people watching, playing with dogs and watching the sunset — romantic, huh?
The only problem was that every time I took a blanket to sprawl out on, I brought it back home covered in grass and dew. This year, I’m more prepared to picnic because I found the perfect outdoor blanket.
UGG Mischa Quilted Outdoor Blanket, $29.99
The UGG Mischa Quilted Outdoor Blanket is water-resistant on one side, and soft and fuzzy on the other. Plus, it zips up into a convenient little rectangle, has a removable strap for carrying and has a pocket for holding your things. And, it feels light as air. Like all things UGG, this blanket is high-quality.
The blanket comes in three colors: pink, blue and grey, and you can get it at Bed Bath & Beyond for only $29.99. Of course, if you’re a Beyond+ member or you just have a million Bed Bath & Beyond 20% off coupons floating around your home, you can get it for $23.99.
I never knew a blanket could make such a difference in my life. I’ve already tested it out at the park and can confirm that I remained dry, warm and no grass stuck to the bottom of it. I also plan to take this baby to the beach this summer.
Get the UGG Mischa blanket and plan a picnic at a park near you, at the beach or even in your own backyard. You can take charcuterie and wine, plan a potluck dinner with friends or even order pizza. Something about dining outside when the weather warms up is so relaxing.
