Sizzling Styles for a Backyard BBQ! July Stylish Monday

We’re in July and it’s time for our first post of the month for Stylish Monday! Time flies when you’re styling in fun!

This month’s Stylish Monday 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- I’m ready!

Here’s what my Fabulously Stylish Friends have styled up for their BBQ!

Amy – Amy’s Creative Pursuits – 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.  

Suzanne – Ask Suzanne Bell  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. 

Nancy –  Nancy’s Fashion Style -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.

Andy – Pearls and Pantsuits -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.

Nicole – High Latitude Style -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.

Emma – The Style Splash – 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 – Fashion Trends and Friends and Instagram FashionTandF –  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!

Shelbee – Shelbee on the Edge – 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!

Gwen – Gwen Lives Well and Instagram – GwenLivesWell (off this month)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!!

Michele – On Instagram as Seechele_styles – 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 – 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.

Brigitte – Brigitte Marie Foret Blog & @brigittemarieforet on Instagram – Off this month

Ada – Elegance and Mommyhood – Off this month

  1. How clever of you to turn this skirt into a dress – I would never have known if you hadn’t said it was a skirt! Well done with the yellow crocheted top over it – it really completes the look and adds an element of specialness to it, Lucy.

    Happy week to you, my dear! I hope your days ahead are full of bright yellow sunshine!

    1. Sheila, I love when I can just change up a look like this! From skirt to dress- that’s my favourite thing to do. It also turns a maxi into a knee length which is so fun I find. Thanks for your good wishes as well dear friend! And likewise for you, beautiful xx

  2. Lucy!

    You always have the most creative and fun styling ideas! You know I love your bright yellow dress ad floppy hat! So fun for a backyard BBQ!

    1. Yes I know you do! As I am always wild about your fun looks too! Thanks my friend xx

    1. I think that yellow is always a good idea- such a fun colour! Love what you wore too! xx

  3. What an awesome colourful outfit! The crochet top works so well over the skirt turned dress and this shade of yellow looks so good on you! 🙂
