Happy Hour: Wedding Weekend Libations

Aug 30, 2019

Where did the time go?  One day, we were engaged.  Then, we were booking venues.  And now, after months of planning, it is officially my wedding weekend.  It feels incredibly surreal to type that phrase.

The Blushing Bride cocktail is a super simple, perfectly peachy drink.  However, I’m not a big fan of the peach schnapps (too sweet) that most recipes include, so I replace it with Deep Eddy peach-flavored vodka.  Add the splash of good quality grenadine, and your cocktail is complete.

This Ulla Johnson dress was on my wedding wish list for a bit.  Sadly, weddings are already expensive and destination weddings, more expensive.  So a $700 dress just wasn’t in the cards; it’s beautiful though.

I opted to wear a white dress that I already owned, but if I hadn’t, this Seen Worn Kept Anglaise Eyelet dress and under-$75 Farrow Smocked Dress were both on my list.  Plus-size?  This Shein dress with lace accents is really beautiful.

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
