+ Happy Hour

Happy Hour: Citrus and Spice

Since it’s Recess, and Recess is the perfect occasion for light afternoon drinking, I figured, why not have an extra Happy Hour this week?  Plus, I really love this dress and wish I could think of a good reason to buy it.

Nothing says Summer like a yellow dress except, maybe, a frozen citrus cocktail.  So if you intend to gather for a meal al fresco, throw on a sunshine colored frock and sip a lemon scented cocktail.  I promise, it will make those hot August days a bit more palatable.
