Happy Hour: Hot Toddy Rules

Sep 27, 2019

New Rule: If the forecast where you live predicts snow, you’re allowed to put up a hot cocktail, even in September.  Yes, snow.

It’s 82-degrees in Washington, D.C. today.  Tell me again, why I moved?  Something about my future, but it all seems very fuzzy as I search this closet for snow boots and gloves.

I’d like to thank  Carolina Girl Cooks for posting the cocktail that I will be drinking every time I get sick this winter: The Earl Grey Hot Toddy.  Which, hopefully, is far less than last winter (The Montana Capitol Crud is real).  I will be making mine with vanilla bourbon, to give it that London Fog kick.

Here’s hoping that I drink them in good health.

Some of you saw the Gucci coat with the bow neck that I posted to the blog on Tuesday.  It is a dream.  But, alas, it is my mortgage, so it is impossible.

Instead, I’m considering this Boden trimmed coat that is equal parts chic and fun.  I adore this red and navy combo, but it also comes in subtler baby blue with navy trim option.

Boden always has fun coats.  Their Hengrave coat has a fun contrasting liner that’s visible at the collar.  And their Lovelace coat is a celebration of color blocking.

Love the whimsy, but not the price point?  Try Modcloth.  I love the dramatic collar on this green peacoat.

    The thought of anything under 85 degrees sounds heavenly. Instagram posts of pumpkins and hot drinks have me dreaming of a full day sans sweat. Thank for helping us overheated southern readers feel like there’s a hope that summer could end..

    I just checked, and it’s supposed to be a high of 95 in Arlington on Wednesday, which would set a new record. I am a hot weather kind of person, but this is a bit much even for me.

    How about I FedEx you 20 degrees or so?

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.
