Get your grilling tongs ready, barbecue season is here! From low country boils by the lake to backyard barbecues with neighbors, we’re taking advantage of every chance we have to enjoy food outdoors with friends and family. And we all know that summertime weather can be h-o-t! I’ve found three great options from Nordstrom Rack that are breezy enough for the weather and cute enough for the crowd!

There’s no time like the present to make sure your outfit is set for when the neighborhood throws an impromptu get together! That’s where Nordstrom Rack comes into play. If you’re new to shopping Nordstrom Rack, you should know they offer up to 70% off designer brands you know and love, free shipping over $89, or FREE ship to store!

From dresses and bags to tank tops and shorts, here are three outfits to wear for your next backyard barbecue. Now all you have to do is decide which side dish you’re bringing [hint: fruit pizza. Always the fruit pizza].
