what a spring it was—one like we’ve never really seen. but we’re still here, together. kinda amazing, really. as a little distraction, i thought i’d do something a little different today. for my regulars, you know that every fridays with oscar, we put together our favorite meal and cocktail of the week for you. so today, i thought i’d round up my top 3 favorite cocktails and outfits from this past spring. ’cause sometimes everyone just needs a drink. so here’s to you, and here’s how to make a damn good cocktail.
much like the recipes today, my outfit is simple and comfortable. casual at its best. i love graphic tee shirts and this one is fun with colorful typography. to play on the colors of my tee, i have a bright orange cardigan and my orange-y suede d’Orsay flats are back in action to add symmetry to my pop of color.
Stir the ingredients together with ice and strain into a glass, or serve on the rocks.
Garnish with an orange peel.
i am dressing for the occasion today, forgoing my typical casual friday ootd for a shirt dress. even though i am staying put, how nice it is to wear a neutral spring dress. it’s a sunny warm spring day. i have the doorway to the porch open and there’s a lovely light breeze flowing in and my easter decor brightens up my home and table.
today’s outfit is all about casual comfort. favorite outfits are like comfort food to me and y’all know i love a graphic tee! a few weeks ago, i wrote about how to style a graphic tee. this graphic tee (old similar here) sets the stage with its pink elephants. but i like to elevate my look by pairing it with something like a blazer or cardigan. so today i couldn’t resist pairing it with a navy sweater blazer (old similar here) with pink piping.
combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake with ice. pour into ice filled, salt rimmed glasses.
