Throwing it back to a few weeks ago, when I attended the Charleston Wine & Food Festival for this week’s Thirsty Thursday cocktail. If you’re a gin lover, you will LOVE this concoction. So delicious smooth and refreshing!
Cucumber Basil Smash
1 1/2 Part Hendricks Gin
3/4 Part Fresh Lemon Juice
3/4 Simple Syrup
One Small Bunch of Basil (3-5 leaves)
3-5 Cucumber Wheels
In a mixing glass, muddle basil, cucumbers and simple syrup. Add Hendricks gin, lemon juice and ice. Shake well and finely strain into an iced double rocks glass. Garnish with a bunch of basil and a cucumber wheel. Consider also muddling seasonal berries for a flavorful variation.
This booth was also probably the most entertaining one at the festival. Loved this guy!

These sandals have always been a longtime favorite over the years. I’m always anxious to see what colors she’ll debut each season. Last summer, I fell for the light pink which have sold out now. This summer, I’m loving these patent stripes! I have no doubt these will be selling out at some point too. Just so cute and nautical for spring/summer. For fit, they’re true to size.
These pretty sunnies have a great shape and I’m loving the pastel pink for spring! I know these will be a pair I’ll be grabbing for again and again. They arrived over the weekend, and I’ve already worn them so many times and received so many compliments on them.
Talk about a fun pop of color! Be prepared to see this bracelet on repeat in a lot of outfits this spring/summer. I love orange paired with so many different colors, from navy to mint, light pink to light blue. Just such a fun piece!
Just like with any new piece, before I even order it, I’m already thinking of how I can style it. And this is what I wore for the first time out in these striped sandals…
Pink Tee (Loving how they added a little more length to the sleeves for a more flattering style. Currently 30% off with code: HAPPYSPRING, making it only $17! Lots of other colors are available.) // Shorts (30% off with code: HAPPYSPRING, making them $31!) // Sandals // Bracelet // iPhone 7 Plus Case (Aren’t the oranges so cute?)
