Happy Hour: Lime in the Coconut
Feb 14, 2014
Who is ready for a tropical vacation? After my sixth hour trapped in the Minneapolis airport yesterday, I was ready to bribe my way onto a Puerto Rico bound flight (no passport, Aruba wasn’t an option). What I wouldn’t give for a sandy beach, a sunny afternoon and an umbrella drink. Luckily, I make one of those things myself at home…if I ever get home.
The bloggers at No Gluten, No Problem have a recipe for a great lime and coconut cocktail that I can’t wait to try. With vanilla rum, cream of coconut, lime and agave nectar, it’s the perfect complement to all my warm weather day dreams.
This summer, I’m feeling a strapless one piece. No tan lines on the shoulders and some stomach coverage, I’ll take it. This suit from Express is lovely, as is this ruffle-free black one-piece. But my favorite one-piece on the market right now is this vintage-looking Tori Praver suit at Shopbop.
The thing I love about one-piece suits is that you can really pick your look. You can be sporty in this Roxy suit with a short bottom and high top. You can be sexy in plunging cut-out white. Or you can be classic and glamorous in this lovely black suit with neck tie.
If you need cover-ups, I always go to discount sites. It’s insane what a cover-up costs at Nordstrom or Bloomingdale’s. 6pm.com and Zappos both have nice ones, but if you live by a TJ Maxx, I’d go there.
