Happy Hour: Brazilian Limeade

Jun 7, 2019

“I’m outdoorsy in that I like to drink on patios.”

Summer is here, and it’s time for outdoor cocktails.  So let’s bring back Happy Hour!

This Brazilian Limeade is a mocktail, a rare feature on this blog.  But you could always add cachaca (a fermented spirit) or rum if you want to make it boozy.

I love the idea of taking a refreshing drink like Limeade or Lemonade and adding sweetened milk to it to make it creamy and frothy.  If you’re not a condensed milk person, sweetened coconut milk would be a wonderful add.  Such a fun, summery drink, but certainly not one that is low in calories.

I envision filling up a brightly colored glass pitcher, buying some fun straws, and inviting friends over to sit outside on a warm summer day.  This would be a great drink to prepare in large batches for family gatherings, since kids could drink it mocktail’ed and adults could add a shot or two.

I love eyelet.  It’s so summery and breezy and feminine.  I feel like I should be standing on a beach somewhere any time I wear it, toes in the sand, relaxation on my mind.  Perhaps, I will just wear eyelet all summer?

At $108, this Jessie Eyelet dress would make a wonderful addition to my wardrobe.  Plus, the straps are wide enough you could wear a real bra.

For something more affordable, this short sleeve dress from TJ Maxx is fab.  I also like this mini-er-length dress from Express if you’re not a maxi or midi wearer.  If you want color, this tomato red Donna Morgan is all summer, all the time.  Plus-size?  Try this Anthro dress or this under-$80 Lane Bryant.

Just need an eyelet top?  This sleeveless Maeve top and Aqua ruffled top both caught my eye.

Too Many Tabs: April 19, 2024

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

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.
