I thought that summer was over, but I just can’t bring myself to sweater weather just yet. At least in Tennessee, we get the occasional 1,000 degree day in September. This year was/is no exception. Summer is by far my favorite season, and my clothing collection for the other seasons drastically lacks compared to summer.
Lucky for me, we had a weekend right out of summer in Nashville. I got to break out this Elsa Fine romper, because it was HOT. When I pack to go home, I always bring a wide collection of things because I never know if I will be having a heat stroke or freezing.
The unique neckline is one of my favorite parts about this number.
I have had these Target wedges for a while, and they ended up being the perfect match. This is why I never get rid of anything… You never know when it will come in handy!
This collection of 3 is my new arm party. It goes with me everyday. It’s simple and timeless.
It breaks my heart that I’m having to pack up my summer dresses and tops, but bring on the layers and the sweaters.
“Cause a little bit of summer makes a lot of history…”
Find the romper here! Hurry, before they sell out!
A new drink for you to try… I had my first Bee’s Knees at Urban Grub in Nashville, and it was such a tasty drink. Urban Grub’s was made with lavender infused gin. That made the drink for me. It smelled like heaven and tasted even better. This recipe from Food & Wine uses plain gin, but if you are feeling extra bold, why not try making some of your own infusions! I’m thinking about trying it soon!
- 2 ounces gin
- 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
- 3/4 ounce honey syrup (1 tablespoon honey mixed with 1/2 tablespoon warm water)
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the gin, lemon juice and honey syrup; shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe.
Easy and delicious! The perfect way to end the summer season.
I am currently so excited about Pilgrimage Festival, so all my songs this week are going to be off of their lineup and who I am most excited to see! I found Saint Motel this summer and once I heard one song, I made everyone ever listen to it. My Type ended up being an anthem to my summer. It is just so fun and makes you wanna move. The words also make me chuckle. “You’re just my type. You got a pulse and you are breathing.” Oh okay, Saint Motel. I don’t hate it, kinda like your style there. My favorite song by them is Cold Cold Man. The piano in the start just gets me every time. Also, these are great songs to play in the morning as you’re getting ready for class. They have a tendency to put me in a good mood, and I’m sure they would do the same for you.
Let’s talk about how beautiful that album art is… Ah, if you couldn’t tell I’m in love and can’t wait to see them live.
you do you, rach
