Happy Hour: Tequila and Lace

Nothing says lazy summer nights like white lace.  This summer, a friend from college is getting married in her parent’s hay barn and the rehearsal dinner is going to be held al fresco.  So when she asked me to help her find the perfect dress, I knew exactly the one.

BCBG Lace Sleeveless Dress ($238+20%)

Breezy and summery with it’s paneled lace, it’s perfect for sipping a cocktail at sunset.  And there is no better cocktail to sip during a quiet dinner than a Chapala.

9 parts Tequila (I like Patron.)
3 parts Lemon Juice
3 parts Orange Juice
1 part Grenadine
Dash Orange Flower Water 
Orange Wedge

Fill a shaker with ice cubes. Add all ingredients. Shake and strain into a chilled old-fashioned glass filled with ice cubes. Garnish with orange. 

It’s like summer in a glass.

    Could you do a line up of different priced lace dresses? Anthropologie has one, but it is more of the Staffer level and I'd really like to know if there are any out there that are Unpaid Intern status. Thanks!
