Happy Hour: Warm and Toasty

How delicious does this cocktail look? Not as delicious as the name Warm Vanilla Cider sounds. It’s like a cozy wool sweater and a fireplace in a cup.
The creator of this amazing concoction is Nutmeg Nanny who mixes apple cider, bourbon, vanilla and brown sugar to create a cocktail that is sure to be on the menu at my next holiday party. She heats hers in a saucepan on the stove, but I bet you could make this in a crockpot for serving at a large gathering. But no one will judge you if you rush out to the store to pick up the ingredients to make one at home this weekend…oh, don’t pretend that I’m the only one.
This sweater is fantastic. I love the chunky knit and the Fair Isle look. It’s the perfect choice for Thanksgiving dinner or casual Fridays during the fall.
I also like this space-dyed sweater dress from Loft for $90 and this zigzag sweater dress from Express for $50. This colorblock dress from Calvin Klein comes in one of my favorite palettes–yellow and grey. And this dress from Vineyard Vines is just a stunner with black and white stripes and a high cowl neck.
If you would prefer a solid-colored sweater dress, I like this Asos dress for its oversized styling. Topshop has a boucle sweater dress, which sounds like an interesting choice. Ann Taylor has a classic sweater dress in a gorgeous midnight blue. And no matter what kind of sweater dress you’re looking for, I’d start at Land’s End. They have many lovely choices at reasonable prices.
