Thirsty Thursday: The SunSplash + Loving Lately

With the dog days of summer upon us, I thought I’d fine a tasty concoction to help get us through the rest of this summer heat.

The Sunsplash
(found this one on

1 1/2 oz orange vodka
1/2 oz Cointreau
1 1/2 oz fresh OJ
1 1/2 oz Cranberry Juice
1 oz Lemon Sour Mix (2 parts fresh lemon juice, 1 part simple syrup)

Shake with ice and strain into an ice filled goblet.
Garnish with a slice of orange and a spiral of lemon.


 As you know, I’ve been all about stocking up on lots of leopard pieces for Fall.  After scoring these Jack Rogers sandals, these heels and these flats, I’d say I’m kind of addicted.  I ordered this Clare V Haircalf Clutch back in June, and Piperlime said it would be backordered until late August.  Well, wouldn’t you know it came in yesterday afternoon?  And I love it!  Can’t wait to pair it with so many ensembles this Fall.  If you’ve never ordered from Piperlime before, get on their email list and take 30% off your first item.  FYI, it’s back in stock at Shopbop now too.  Not sure how long they’ll last, as they’re pretty popular little clutches.  I can definitely see why though.

The boys love their Babiators.  They really fit so well!  Even cooler is their Lost & Found Guarantee.  Register your pair, and they’ll replace a lost or broken pair for free.  Click here to check out more colors and styles.

How cute is this PJ Set from Crewcuts?  Currently 40% off the sale price with code: DEPTOFSALE.
Free shipping, no minimum order.

I know many of y’all have children that are heading back to school soon, and some that have even started already!  Hard to believe!  I’ve used these lunch boxes for the girls for the past two years.  Love the little monogram on it.  I just ordered the green one for Logan, since he’ll be starting preschool this year.  The cost is $17.95, plus $8 to personalize it.  L.L.Bean offers free shipping too.

Sunnies // The Goldfinch
Instead of watching HGTV and Food Network while the children nap in the afternoon, I’ve been trying to fit in some summer reading.  I’m currently engrossed in The Goldfinch.  So good!  Love Donna Tartt’s writing style – so descriptive and easy to read.  Next up is Where’d You Go, Bernadette?

A big thanks to SSP reader Michele’s email, informing me that my latest collages (where you can click on images to shop) are causing errors in the Feedly App.  I’m currently working on a solution to fix it.

Hope y’all have a fabulous Thursday!

  1. Cheers, that sounds delicious! I am obsessed with leopard this fall too! I even did a post on it my favorite items–that Clare Vivier foldover is on my christmas list and so much more affordable with the Piperlime discount! We picked up our second pair of Babiators at the last Nordstrom sale because they are the best! Have fun reading "The Goldfinch"–it is next on my list, and "Where'd You Go Bernadette?" was such a quick and fun read! Have a great day!

  2. The drink sounds delicious, I'll be trying that for my next girl's night in for sure! And you sound just like me, I am addicted to HGTV/Food Network, but I've been trying to squeeze in a few last minute reads before the summer is over =)

    If you'd like to check out what I'm getting into & look at my new blog, I would love to have your expertise!

    Thanks so much!

  3. Seriously the sunglasses pic is way too cute!! We've always used those lunchboxes too but I just switched to pottery barn kids and really love theirs as well! I looooved Where'd You Go Bernadette!! Sooo good.
