As a digital publisher being in front of the computer is non-negotiable. We live in an age of technology — we are all surrounded by computers and other forms of artificial intelligence, hence the need for simplicity gets to me at times. I want to take a break, be outdoors and read a good book.

How do you escape technology? Answer: Have a picnic at your favorite park or by the beach, and leave your cell phones at home! It’s a welcoming change to spend your day outdoors, I can promise you that.

Where do you like to spend your summer’s at, and do you take breaks from technology at all? Do tell by commenting below!

As always, thank you for reading & much love!

    Loving this dress Vanessa you just look so beautiful. I think your idea of going on a picnic to get away from technology is awesome! When it comes to summer I like to be with friends from home and I do try sometimes to stay away from technology but it can be hard!

    Stunning dress! Beautiful setting! We are going to New Forest in the UK in September and we always picnic there, between the wild horses!

    A picnic is just so lovely, and love your dreamy pics! I should take a break way more often than I do, but when I’m off the computer I’m usually out hiking or walking in the woods! Xx

    I love this post! It looks like the perfect way to unwind! I’ve been wanting to pack up my basket and head to the lake for a picnic. I really try to detach from social media on the weekends. I post so much during the week that it can be nice to take a break and really just enjoy my weekends spent with family and friends, rather than worrying about the perfect angel or the right filter!

    Here in SF, every Sunday at the Presidio park there’s one giant picnic with many food trucks and lots and lots of people. It’s the best way to spend a Sunday in the summer, and do a little digital detox!
    The colors of your dress are almost as pretty as you Vanessa!

    You know, we’ve been wanting to go on a picnic for the LONGEST time, but like you said, technology, life, etc. gets in the way. The funny thing is everytime I picture a picnic in my head, it looks just as fabulous as in your pictures, thank you for putting this fabulous picnic into perspective for us! Fabulous pictures!

    totally agree vanessa, it’s so important to escape technology and maybe it’s a little bit funny and childish but tomorrow the new Harry Potter book will arrive here , and if the weather is quite good (i hope it doesn’t rain, that would mean it’s good) I’ll sit outside, read a little bit and relax after work *_* your picks are so perfect and your dress is so chic and feminine, just the perfect piece to look fabulous <3
    I just can say it again and again, you're so beautiful, inside and out AND your photos are getting even more beautiful everytime 🙂 love you hun <3

  21. August 3, 2016 / 12:24 PM

    First off, you look absolutely gorgeous in this dress! The colors are so beautiful and vibrant and truly pop beautifully against your skin! My favorite way to disconnect form everything is spending the day or a few hours at a park, surrounded by all of nature’s beauty. It just relaxes and inspires me and for the moment, you don’t feel all the pressures and demands of life; such a great feeling! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having the best week so far!

    Aaw this is such a perfect outfit to have a picnic – this dress is way too cute! I love your pretty smile in all of these pictures, it’s just the best accessory 🙂

    You have such a beautiful smile Vanessa! I love this dress, it’s such a beautiful print. A picnic is a great way to escape from life for a few hours. I like to try and get outside and walk at least half hour each day. It helps to clear the mind 🙂
    Hope you’re having a great week!

    xo, Jackie

    I love picnics, dear Vanessa, I am always “in” when I am invited or provide one myself! So I loved to see yours here! You look so lovely! Always beautiful and sophisticated! Such a beautiful print and sandals! I do the following: at around 6 pm, when I can, I switch the laptop off. And on Sundays I only use it for 10 minutes 🙂 Hope you have a lovely day, dear friend! Hugs and kisses!

  25. August 3, 2016 / 6:42 PM

    Beautiful photos! I’m right there with you and like you said I think the key is to leave your phone at your house and step away. You don’t realize how rejuvenating it is to unplug until you do it.



  26. August 3, 2016 / 7:58 PM

    I always love a pretty picnic with family, love your basket and dress. You look beautiful!

    I love to spend time outside, it really helps relieve stress. You dress is truly adorable!


  28. August 4, 2016 / 12:42 AM

    What a cute dress, it looks amazing on you! And you’re right, we do need to escape technology once in a while, I love to take walks at the park without my phone, I try to leave it at home when I can!

    Loving eveything about this: picnics, your dress, the scenery.. just gorgeous! And yes, a good book is always a must have when trying to spend time away from the screen!


  30. August 4, 2016 / 10:02 AM

    I’ve always been a sucker for a picnic 🙂 When I was little I would make myself a little lunch box and have my own picnics in my backyard! hahaha
    You look beautiful! As always 🙂

    Summer is slipping away and I wish I could say I’m enjoying it to the fullest. I do love escape to nature, having nice strolls and relax. Vanessa these are so pretty photos and you look wonderful in this gorgeous dress.


  32. August 4, 2016 / 11:33 AM

    Fabulous dress! Such pretty colors that work so well for you!

    And, yes, going outside and away from technology is sooo important! I started reading “real” books again after my kindle broke again and have been really enjoying it!

  33. August 4, 2016 / 1:45 PM

    Gorgeous dress!! Loved this post. As far as disconnecting from technology, my biggest thing is leaving my phone behind. It’s amazing how much more you see and do when you’re not glued to your phone ; ) a picnic sounds like an amazing way to spend the afternoon, though!

    xx, Amy

    You look stunning! I love summer picnics! That dress is so beautiful, and what a beautiful spot you’ve found! I unwind by going to the gym or relaxing at the beach, but I’m guilty of being pretty attached to my phone. It’s so hard to unplug, but when I’m with friends, I make a point of rarely reaching for my phone. You can’t beat quality face to face time. 🙂


  39. August 5, 2016 / 9:37 AM

    I am planning a weekend in nature! Escape cell! Gorgeous dress!
