do i have a fun fridays with oscar today! and a very special guest star, lisa from the Silver Stylist. swing by her site and say hello! lisa is also on Instagram and Facebook. yes, it’s friday time to kick up our heels and relax. what better way to do that than sharing a cocktail and a ladies’ lunch with one of your besties? lisa and i have been gal pals since i moved to Georgia five years ago! she’s a silver hair sister, blogging buddy, and truly one of my dearest friends that i love to spend time with, whether chatting on the phone, texting, or in-person. the commute from door to door is forty-five minutes, so we have to plan our get-togethers ahead of time. but we try our best to squeeze in a monthly lunch, whether in Athens, Atlanta, or somewhere in-between.
of course, oscar is here for his weekly gig. believe you me; this dog never misses out on extra love and attention when someone walks through our front door. oscar has yet to meet a human he didn’t love, and the love is bound to return, right?!
mother nature decided to put on a show today, delivering sunshine, blue skies, and perfect temps! sooner or later, Georgia will heat up with highs in the nineties and a humidity level to match. so we’ll take all the picture-perfect days we can get! lisa looks adorable in frayed hem jeans and a floral blouse from LOFT. me? i’m sporting new cropped flare pants (size 8) that also come in linen from J.Crew that fit like a dream, a blouse from Diane von Furstenberg (old, similar here, here, and here), and block heel sandals from Stuart Weitzman (affordable options here and here). yes, they’re pricey shoes but oh so comfortable.
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake and pour. Enjoy!
intro to aperol is one of my favorite spring and summer cocktails. every chance i have i introduce this cocktail as it’s so refreshing! now my daughter-in-law and son’s girlfriend love this drink as much as i do. i’m certain lisa will ask for this cocktail again!
oscar, lisa and i wish you a lovely weekend!
