+ Happy Hour

Happy Hour: Back to the Bar


It’s been awhile since we had a Happy Hour post on Friday, so let’s delve back into the world of homemade cocktails with Smitten Kitchen’s Bourbon Slush Punch (photo c/o).  Her recipe contains black tea, orange juice, bourbon, lemon juice and mint, making it the perfect end-of-summer cooler.  And look at the froth on the top!  How do you look at that and not want to pull up a patio chair and sip til your heart’s content?


Lush Knit Maxi Dress ($39)

It’s just two LONG weeks until my vacation.  And if I can still remember my own name after law school finals, you’ll find me poolside.  Which means, pool covers.

This maxi dress is perfect for wandering around the resort or the beach post pool.  I also love this printed maxi dress from Lush.  This August Salt strapless maxi with a ruffle top is also a great option.

Want a shorter dress?  This Tinley Road crossover dress is a great pool cover or casual dress.  I also like this striped-henley tank dress from Gap.

Petite? This strapless print maxi is nice, as is this stripe Gap dress with a tulip skirt.   Plus-size?  This printed Sejour dress would be a fabulous pool cover.  I also like this Old Navy tank dress.
