oscar is over the rain and so am i! oscar is suffering a bit more than me as he’s been cooped up in the house for days. his daily walks have been curtailed to a once around the block and he’s missing his yard to romp and run to his heart’s content. hopefully, the sun will decide to make a grand entrance and we can sing the hallelujah chorus. over and over.

but, hey, it’s friday! time to indulge in a cocktail and whip up a new recipe. and oscar will get a bully stick to celebrate. as you can see from the photos the christmas decorations are but a memory. the house is back in order and it’s time to focus on the new year. january is a great month to clean, organize, and streamline our lives. i’ve already sorted through my closet and mr. style worked on our storage area in the basement.

today’s ootd is casual through and through. skinny jeans, an asymmetrical tunic (similar here and here), and cap-toe ballet flats. what’s easier than that? i added a rosary station necklace from Tory Burch and gold hoops (similar here) then called it a day.

the cocktail this week is mexican firing squad. and i have to admit this is one of my favorites! maybe it’s the addition of the grenadine to slightly sweeten it or maybe it’s the bitters to counteract the sweetness. whatever it is the combination is just right!
