Happy Hour: Put It on Ice

Apr 30, 2015

Sipping a cocktail on a hot summer day is a great way to relax.  But it’s disappointing when you reach the bottom of the glass and discover that your libation is more watered down than a 90s pop album.  These flavored ice cubes from The Jungalow keep your drink cold without diluting it.  I like these silicone ice cube trays from Williams Sonoma because they’re easier to use than the plastic ones.

Serving your cocktail from a punch bowl?  Make a large ice cube ring filled with fruit and herbs.

Suno Embroidered Peasant Top ($395)

An embroidered cotton top is a great addition to your warm weather wardrobe.  It’s also the perfect attire for a casual backyard party.  You can pair it with shorts, white pants, or skinny jeans.  It’s relaxed and breezy, but still impossibly chic.

Looking for something a bit cheaper?  This Forever21 cap-sleeve top is incredibly cute.  This J.Jill embroidered top with turquoise accents is a good choice.  It also comes in petite and plus-sizes.

I like my peasant blouses with a long-sleeve, so this red-accented top from Shoptiques caught my eye.  This Gibson & Lattimer top with black accents is pretty.

Prefer a tunic length?  Tory Burch is the standard.  This Ark & Co. tunic is more affordable, but just as stylish.  Plus-size?  This Charter Club tunic is lovely.

Happy Hour

    I picked this top up from Target a few weeks ago and have worn it every weekend since–it’s so much cuter in person: https://www.target.com/p/embroidered-peasant-top-mossimo-supply-co/-/A-16811644#prodSlot=_3_1

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
