Happy Hour: An August Cooler

Jul 31, 2015

Once July 31st rolls around, I start to hear the song “The Final Countdown” playing in my head.  How can summer be on the downswing?  I’m not ready.  I’m not ready.  

For many of us, August means a drastic uptick in temperatures.  Who needs a refreshing summer cocktail for Friday nights on the patio?

Rosemary-Lemongrass-cooler-Glitter-Guide

The Glitter Guide has this Rosemary Lemongrass Cooler on offer.  It mixes gin, champagne, lime, lemongrass and a syrup to make a light cocktail for summer nights.  This drink looks like the perfect thing to serve for a small outdoor dinner party.

Kut from the Kloth Sheath Dress ($98)

As it is almost August (eek!), it’s time for the last wide of the white dresses.  I chose cotton dresses, as it breathes a bit better than synthetic fabric.

This Kut dress has a nice trim and a sleek shape.  I also like this fuller-skirted Eliza J dress.  This henley dress from Ralph Lauren looks relaxed.  And this Ivanka Trump dress from Macy’s has a very unique eyelet pattern.

Want something more cocktail?  This BCBG ruffle-sleeve dress is divine.

Plus-size? This Calvin Klein eyelet fit-and-flare dress is nice.  I also like this Adrianna Papell cotton-eyelet dress.

Happy Hour

Shoe Week: One Last Summer Shoe

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions. Her response: “Typical.”
