San Miguel feels like heaven right now. It was around 65 degrees this time yesterday, while my friends back in Dallas had a high of 106 degrees to look forward to. Enjoying every minute in this beautiful city!

WANTED: Leopard Beatle Boots

Freja

Miu Miu

I'd had a very bad crush on these Miu Miu boots. Then I saw this picture of Freja in her leopard beatle boots, and now I want them all the more! This shape is so good. Crazy ankle boots will always be my downfall.

Just Playin'

Dolce
This was shot a few weeks back when I had gone out to my mom's house for the weekend to see my family and get some work done. I had packed absolutely nothing, as usual. My mom has an insane closet that she lets me play in from time to time...every single item here I borrowed from her. Thanks mom! We were just having fun styling crazy outfits when I put this together. This Dolce and Gabbana jacket was a great outlet find of hers. The Golden Goose jeans are to die for, makes me want a pair of my own.

Favorite cocktail recipe: The Last Word

The Last Word Cocktail

The Last Word Cocktail

TGIF, y'all! You may have gathered this already, but I like my cocktails. My greatest joy in life is having my friends over, playing good music, and sampling new cocktail recipes with them. My current favorite is a cocktail called "The Last Word". It has been a big hit with everyone I've served it to. It is simultaneously light and refreshing while being extremely complex and and bit pungent. If you serve one cocktail in your home, make it this one! Easy and delicious.

  • ¾ oz Gin (I used Tanqueray)
  • ¾ oz Green Chartreuse (I used yellow Chartreuse here because I was out of green Chartreuse, the drink did not suffer for it!)
  • ¾ oz Maraschino (Luxardo)
  • ¾ oz fresh lime juice

Yesterday at the thrift store

Yesterday went by at a million miles a minute. I'm tackling a couple of projects at the moment, and in the mix of all of this I have been doing a lot of entertaining. Yesterday I made it a priority to hit the thrift store to hunt down some pretty stemware. If you are going to make a good cocktail, it deserves a worthy glass. I totally scored at Salvation Army and another local favorite thrift store called Genesis. I also found beautiful gold trays. Now I'm set to party! I will definitely be sharing some of my favorite cocktails on the blog soon. Stay tuned!

Topshop and ASOS do great black pencil skirts. I like a viscose blend the best. It is never a bad idea to have a few black pencil skirt options on hand. They save my life when I need to get out of the door quickly but want to look put together.
