farm fresh

$225, jcrew.com
On Saturday evening, my husband and I and two other couples went to Malibu Farm, owned by chef and author Helene Henderson. She stages quarterly 80-person dinners in her four-acre backyard, filled with goats, chickens, lush orange trees and vegetable gardens. (Most of the organic rustic-gourmet fare is made from the just-picked herbs and vegetables grown on Henderson's farm!) The only hitch to the fantastic evening was figuring out what to wear to the farm. Flats and jeans, for sure, but since the dinner was al fresco, and knowing how Malibu can get very chilly at night, I wanted to wear a blouse that looked summery and festive and yet was easy to layer. I so wish I had this vibrant print tunic, because it would have been perfect for the occasion. But now I am thinking it will work some magic on July 4th, paired with shorts, of course...
