Happy Hour: Blush and Bashful, with Sake

Truth be told, I don’t drink much sake.  But you put lemongrass, grapefruit and ginger in a cocktail and I am so there.  This cocktail from The Bojon Gourmet is a perfectly crisp, warm-weather cocktail.

Pim + Larkin Poppy Textured Dress ($79)

I have a wedding to attend in Texas next week, and I’m thinking pink.  No idea why.  I just feel like pink.

This dress from Pim + Larkin is simple and easy with a bright color and a bit of texture.  Need a v-neck?  Try this very similar dress from I. Madeleine.  Piperlime also had this dress from Rhyme that has a flirty drop waist.

Prefer a paler pink?  Try this Glorious Guest Dress from Modcloth or this medium pink v-neck from Gilt that could also be worn to work.  I also dig this lace coral-pink dress from Adrianna Papell.

Plus-size? Try this dark pink v-neck dress from Anne Klein.  I also like this shell pink Gathering Gals dress from Modcloth.  Petite?  Check out this cap-sleeve fit and flare from Limited.  Tall?  This pale pink drop waist dress from Asos is sublime.

Happy Hour

    Belle, What do you wear to bachelorette parties? I’m struggling to find something that is fun, yet late 20s age appropriate.

  2. Anna says:

    Thanks for the v-neck options! Crew necks make me look like a square…and like I have really big boobs, but not in a good way.

  3. Haley says:

    For a wedding or bridal shower, how would you accessorize the v-neck? I’m not big on necklaces with a v-neck, but would simple earrings be too boring?

    This cocktail looks delicious and I love the dress. Great posts this week, Belle! Thank you for keeping up with CHS while you have so much going on with the move, etc. Oh, and I hadn’t said “congrats” on transitioning to law school etc. So – congrats and good luck!

  5. Alanna says:

    Thanks for the cocktail share! Love these pink dresses.

  6. I have loaded up on pink this season, very unlike me, but oh well. Love the Adrianna Papell one! Lace and pink, rock together!!

    Pink dresses for the win! They’re pretty much a staple for me.
