Hats Off to a New Blog

Summer brings new adventures, free time, and a break from the same ol’ same ol’ in the school year. It’s easy to find time to try new foods, new drinks, and new styles. For me, summer gives me a chance to start many new projects like furniture pieces and a new blog. So, hats off to the first post on my new blog about drinks, fashion, and music. *Food will appear occasionally, because let’s face it… I love to eat.

My favorite trend this summer has been hats. I purchased my first felt hat back in the Fall of 2013 and was very unsure about it. Now, I own 4 and try to get away with wearing them whenever I can. They add the perfect amount of hip to a simple outfit and can be the best finishing touch. With t-shirt dresses being all the rage these days, I decided these two are a match made in heaven.

White Converse completed the look with the right amount of casual flare. With these on my feet, I feel like I can take on the world… Or at least be able to run and catch up with it.

This outfit makes me want to sit on a porch, looking out at Nashville talking about what’s next in the crazy ride called life with an ice-cold Moscow Mule. 

*This is my all time favorite summer drink.

How to make one for yourself!

  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 4 to 6 ounces ginger beer
  • Collins glass (The Copper Mug that makes them the cutest drinks on the block.)

Squeeze lime juice into a Collins glass (or Moscow Mule mug) and drop in the peel. Add some ice, pour in the vodka and fill with cold ginger beer.

Now your are ready for a great Nashville Summer night. Turn up Dreams by Beck and you have a real party on your hands.

Dreams is my summer anthem this year. It’s the right amount of funk and folk and can be played morning-to-night. Not to mention Beck is perfection. He can do no wrong. So roll down your windows and turn it up loud. I bet you will be singing by the last chorus.

you do you, rach
