For this week’s cocktail, I was on the hunt for something crisp and refreshing. I’m pretty sure I found it with this breezy concoction. Can’t wait to try this one soon!
Apricot and Cherry Breezer
(found it here)
8 oz limeade
4-5 apricots, halved and pitted
2-3 cherries, pitted
3 oz light rum (increase for a stronger drink)
2 oz triple sec
Place apricots and cherries in a shaker and muddle.
Add limeade, rum and triple sec into shaker.
Shake well, and strain into ice filled glasses.
Garnish with slices of lime and apricot and cherry on top.
I’m flying out today for a fun girl’s weekend in Dallas for a blog conference. This is my third year in a row. I’m going to miss Lanier and the kids like crazy by the end of it, I’m sure. I get back on Sunday around 1pm. But for now I’m super excited to have some time to catch up with friends, enjoy some pool time and eat some delicious food! Can’t wait!
My Travel OOTD
For those wondering what I’ll be wearing on the plane, I’m planning on wearing this gingham top (currently on sale for $20; fit is true to size), these shorts in cantaloupe (30% off with code: TIMETOSHOP) and these sandals.
These sandals are some of my most comfortable, best-quality sandals and I love traveling with them. I’ve had them for at least three years and I feel like they get softer and softer the more I wear them. If you’ve been eying them, get them now while they’re 25% off until midnight. Use code: INTHEFAM at check-out. For fit, I’m an 8.5 and wear a size 39 in them.
If I get cold on the flight, I’ll probably toss on this sweatshirt. I know I’ve told y’all before, but I LOVE this sweatshirt so much! If you still want it for 25% off, use code: INTHEFAM at checkout. I like mine big, so I got it in a size 3.
As for what I’m packing, it’s always fun to pack for a girls’ trip. I’m clearly obsessed with crossbodies, ALMOST as much as I am with sunglasses. Deciding on which ones I’m going to bring with me has been a bit challenging. In the end, I know I’ll probably bring these Le Specs and these tortoise ones along, and maybe these green ones too. A girl has to have options, right?
I’m going to take this Gigi New York Uber Clutch in Azure…
and love this neutral Madison Crossbody.
As far as what tote I’ll be bringing along, I’m bringing my go-to Barrington Monogram Stripe St. Anne. Got this last summer and was so excited to pull it out again for this season! There’s a million different ways to personalize your tote. I chose the navy stripes, pink/orange strip and the circle monogram.
And because I couldn’t resist this little coin purse by Kate Spade, I thought this would be a cute pouch to store all of my receipts in over the weekend.
Yesterday, I got this new wrap bracelet I ordered in the mail. I’m planning on wearing it now and on through summer. It’s not stiff at all and has four buttons on the back so you can adjust it to your wrist really well. I’m taking it with me on my trip this weekend and will probably wear it everyday! A friend told me that Stella & Dot launches their summer collection today. Can’t wait to see what all they debut. Apparently, it’s supposed to be awesome!
I got an email yesterday with my race pics. These crack me up! You know I can always find the camera!
From left to right
Equipment Top (runs a tad big, but I still wear a small in it)
Sweatshirt (runs big, I have it in a size 3, comparable to a size M/L)
Scalloped Swim Top (love this style, I’m a 34B and wear a medium in it)
Floral Swing Dress (fit is true to size, I have it in a small – trust me, wear this awesome bra with it! I’m obsessed! (plus, right now, it’s also on sale!))
Striped Swing Top (fit runs a little big, but I have it in a small and love that it’s swingy)
Alright, off to finish packing. I guess I’ve been on a blue kick these past few weeks. All of these pieces above are 25% off until midnight with code: INTHEFAM. Don’t wait to score them later, otherwise you’ll be kicking yourself you didn’t get them when they were on sale. Prices go back up tomorrow.
Some of you have asked about Shopbop and their customer service. Trust me, I wouldn’t shop their site or tell you to shop there if I didn’t love this site. Shopbop offers free shipping and returns, and their shipping is extremely easy. The return label is sticky, so popping it back in the mail is pretty effortless. While you have to return unwanted items within 30 days unlike Nordstrom where there is no return time window, their shipping is actually a lot quicker than Nordstrom’s shipping. Most items arrive within three days.
And because it’s only fitting, when I saw that these pink cocktail pjs were part of the sale, you knew I had to order them! As one of my friends suggested, these would make a great bachelorette gift too!
Happy Sipping and Shopping!
