Happy Hour: The White Cosmo


This white cosmo recipe comes to us from The Kitchn.  It contains the usual ingredients but adds a bit of St. Germain instead of the more traditional Cointreau.  It’s the perfect cocktail for book club meetings, drinks with friends or just because it’s Friday.

Lanston Racerback Drape Dress ($165)

While it’s not warm yet, the start of Daylight Saving Time means that it will be here soon.   Maybe not soon enough for some.  But the promise of summer is enough to have me thinking about relaxed maxi dresses for weekends and casual dinners.

I like the drape front and racerback on this one, but it’s only available in a couple of sizes.  I found this drape front dress in midnight navy and this one in a subtler taupe.  If it’s the racerback you’re after, this black Rachel Pally dress is nice, and I love the kaleidoscope print on this one.  And if you’re in search of something with a bit of a sleeve, I dig this long sleeve pleated-skirt one and this navy cap sleeve dress.

If you’re looking for expanded sizes, Old Navy has a selection of maxi dresses in plus sizes and Saks has this fun geometric print one.  Petite ladies will find a lot of options at Ann Taylor like this ruched dress, this colorblock one and this pretty, sleek halter neck.

 Have a great weekend and a safe St. Patrick’s Day.
