Happy Hour: The Tangerine Gimlet
Oct 21, 2016
We all know that I love an easy cocktail. Partly because I’m lazy, but mostly because making craft cocktails can be expensive and time-consuming. And when I make cocktails at home, I don’t want to spend hours muddling, reducing, and chilling.
This Tangerine Gimlet from A Communal Table contains only three simple ingredients and tastes amazing. If you like vodka and orange juice, you will like this even better. Tangerine juice has a much smoother, richer flavor. If you find it a bit too heavy, I suggest a dash of club soda.
This cocktail is perfect for early fall weather. It gives you the richness of fall with the refreshment of summer.
Edwardian-style lace blouses are so hot right now, with their opulent lace details and their mock-neck collars. It’s the perfect way to blend fall style into the warmer weather so many of use are experiencing. I spotted this photo on Laura Fantacci’s Instagram and immediately had to have that Monsoon blouse. Sadly, it’s sold out in most sizes, but there is plenty of other lacy goodness to be had.
H&M has a very affordable blouse with clean-enough lines that you can actually wear it to work. This black Rebecca Taylor blouse gives me all the romantic/gothic feels. This Vince Camuto blouse has a similar look with an underlayment, so no camisole needed (also in plus-size). But this ivory Rebecca Taylor blouse with a lace accent might be my favorite of the bunch.
Prefer your lacy looks in dress form? This $98 dress from Express has the modern look of Self-Portrait without the eye-popping price or shockingly small fit. This Calvin Klein burnout dress with short sleeves has just enough soft/pretty to offset the black.
