What to wear when going out for Outdoor Dining
While many restaurants are doing their best to make outdoor dining spaces as cozy for their guests as possible, there are a couple of things that you can do to make sure your experience is comfortable!
- Come with an outdoor blanket to snuggle up with! An ideal blanket should be waterproof on one side and fleecy on the other.
- Glove up! And while you’re at it slip your feet into a pair of fuzzy socks.
- Get an oversized blanket scarf. You can wrap it around your neck as a scarf or drape it over your lap while you enjoy your outdoor dining experience.
- Wear boots. Ones with a thick sherpa lining work great!
- Buy a cozy parka. If comfort is what you’re looking for, you can’t go wrong with a parka! The waterproof shell, warm insulation, and attached hood will keep you comfortable in even the harshest winter weather.
