Cocktail Chic

I am a morning person by nature, but during summer my favorite time of day is cocktail hour. Whether I’m drinking a cocktail or not, I love the feeling around 5 p.m. when we take a moment to savor the day and transition into the evening.  There’s always something to celebrate, right?  Especially this time of year. I love the excuse to pour something cold, change out of  my swimsuit and coverup, and into something fabulous. So, what to wear ?

The answer is silk.  I’m loving the idea of silk in either pants, shorts, or a one piece with a pretty top. Silks are the perfect light, airy, summer fabric that somehow make you look elegant without too much effort. Pair with a dressy sandal if you’re going out, or with a flat if you’re staying in. Either way, you have a cocktail in hand and that’s what’s most important!

And speaking of cocktails, we have our official “drink of the summer”.  Sam has perfected making it, and I have perfected drinking it.
