Happy Hour: Orange and Basil Mojitos

May 10, 2013

I’m not typically a fan of basil, but last week, I had a Basil Limoncello Martini at Poste and fell in love.  So I think that this lovely weather we’re having calls for a pitcher of Orange and Basil Mojitos from Dine and Dish.  They look so tangy and refreshing.

Eliza J Orange Maxi Dress ($158)

This dress is perfect for sipping cocktails on the patio.  I love the bright color and swingy shape.  But if you’re not feeling a maxi dress, this orange fit and flare sundress is also a good choice.

I also love this silk Tibi dress even though the price gives me a headache.  This short sleeve DvF dress is more affordable (yay, sale!), and depending on where the length hits you, could be worn to work.  And if you’re just looking for an inexpensive dress to wear on the weekend, this $30 Old Navy caught my eye.

Petite? This 70s-style halter dress is nice. Plus size? I love this Tahari dress for work or play.

Happy Hour

    what would you suggest for nail polish with this color, other than a similar orange tone?

      Y’know, I’d probably use a neutral, like Essie Jazz. If you’re adventurous, I’d say a deep turquoise or even a rich purple/aubergine. 🙂

How to Survive the Blistering Heat

We had a wet spring, followed by a mild May and June. So I was not at all prepared for the triple digit heat that hit the Pacific Northwest like a freight train this week. Instead, I just feel lucky that we had any nice weather at all. But existing when it’s this hot is […]
