Happy Hour: Grapefruit Mojitos


When I originally spotted these Grapefruit Mojitos on Pinterest, all I could think was, “Yes. Yes, I need that.”  The perfect combination of sour, sweet and herbs, this cocktail from Iowa Girl Eats will be served at many upcoming rooftop dinner parties.  Heck, I may stop at the grocery store on the way home for a few Ruby Reds.


JNY Belted Shirt Dress ($88)

The dress is a little June Cleaver, but that’s what I like about it.  It’s perfect for a summertime dinner party.  I also like this chambray number.

If you’re looking for something sleeker, try this pale blue poplin shirt with tuxedo details or this purple knit shirtdress.  I also like the print on this sleeveless shirt dress. And if you want something ultra-feminine, have a look at this dot-print dress with a pleated skirt.

Plus-size: I like this full-skirted dress and this graphic print one.  Petite: This Brooks Brothers style is a classic.

    If you like the grapefruit mojito, try the Spicy Grapefruit Margarita– grapefruit juice, tequila infused for 2-3 hours with a couple seeded serrano peppers, a little simple syrup or agave, over ice. Super good.

    I usually love everything you post, but this dress totally missed the mark. It’s very matronly and not at all representative of the fun, confident outfits I look forward to seeing on CHS.
