Happy Hour: It’s Going to Be Meyer (Lemon)


One of my favorite cocktails is served at Poste in D.C..  It offers flavors of lemon and basil.  I’m hoping for something equally magical from this rosemary and lemon cocktail from Design Sponge.  Though I’ll have to swap the gin for vodka (stupid allergies).  With herbal and citrus notes, this cocktail is perfect for the transition between winter and summer.


Asos True Violet Bardot Pencil Dress ($106)

Yellow is a hot hue for spring.  This Asos dress gives a bit of the sunny color with a glamorous, Old Hollywood look.  For cocktail, I also like this yellow, lace shift from Topshop and this sweetheart strapless dress from eDressMe.

Looking for something more casual?  This Gap fit-and-flare sundress (also in petite) is affordable and fun.  This yellow Kensington dress from Boden is fab.  This yellow-printed dress from Boden (also in petite) is also fantastic.

Plus-size? This printed peasant dress from Tahari is a great piece.  I also like this cap sleeve dress for summer weddings.

    Belle, do you think that dress is appropriate for a wedding, given the amount of white? I have such a hard time with deciding on that issue.
