Those Citrus Vibes

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m working on adding more yellow into my wardrobe & this dress is one of my new favorite pieces. My first reaction upon seeing this dress online, was to order it in a dreamy white shade, but when I saw it also came in yellow, I decided to take a chance & dive right in.

In my previous post, I talked about wanting to maybe do a full green & yellow look. I did not have an idea in mind for this post yet, but then I randomly one day tried this combination on together & it felt so right. The dramatic skirt of this dress in contrast with the green, more structured & formal feel of the jacket overtop is a look I’m totally in to at the moment. One thing I really needed for this outfit to truly come together was a great pair of green + yellow earrings. These BaubleBar earrings blinged out in lemons were an absolutely perfect match.

My Green + Yellow Look

This amazing bright yellow dress is definitely the star of the show. I know you will see me wearing this so much over the coming months because of how stunning it is on it’s own. For this post, I layered this vintage green houndstooth jacket with gold buttons (similar here), but wrapped the belt of the dress over it for a more flattering silhouette. A dress like this will look great with flats in the summer, but I loved how these ivory rounded toe, chunky heels complimented this look perfectly. For a bit of texture, I wore my classic, mini Chanel bag which tied in with the darker tones of my jacket.

This location was perfect with the green & yellow houses, but there was a salmon colored one right in the middle that matched my lipstick so well! I was wearing my new favorite: the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Liquid Lipstick in the shade, Too Bad, I’m Bad. Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are just the best. They last so long, wear so well, & feel so comfortable on the lips. You know I love my affordable products, but I will say, these lipsticks are worth a little splurge.

Spring Cocktail

Spring Cocktail

I love playing with seasonal scents & flavors. This time of year makes me crave all things floral & lemon. There is something so fresh & crisp about these flavors that reminds me of warm nights with friends & feeling the sunshine on my face. The only thing better than florals & lemons would have to be combining them, & I have a spring cocktail that does just that!

Spring Cocktail

Here’s What You Need For This Spring Cocktail:

Your favorite lemonade (mine is the Simply Lemonade)

Ice cubes

A lemon

A few sprigs of thyme

1/2-1 shot of gin depending on how strong you like your drinks

1/2-1 shot of elderflower liquor

I’m gonna be honest, I don’t like really strong drinks. I like to have the option to have more than one without feeling it the next day. You know what I’m saying? So I’m going to share with you how I make this drink, but if you have more of a heavy hand, feel free to make it as strong as you’d like!

Let Me Make You A Drink

Start with a fun glass. I chose to use my mason jars because they just go with the warmer weather in my mind. Fill the glass about 1/3 of the way with ice. Then, I add 1/2 shot of Citadelle & 1/2 shot of St Elder Elderflower Liquor to the ice & top it off with Simply Lemonade, leaving just a little bit of room at the top. Next, I squeeze half a lemon into the glass, making it taste extra fresh. Then for garnish, I like to add a few sprigs of thyme, a slice of lemon in the drink, & a lemon slice on the rim because it looks so cute! There is something so satisfying about a pretty cocktail, & I think this one takes the cake!

I think another reason why I love this cocktail in particular is because lemons make me think of our upcoming honeymoon to the Amalfi Coast! Give me all the lemon things! Including this dreamy Lemoncello candle I’m obsessing over at the moment. If you are a lemon lover like me, you need this candle!

Cheers!
