Today’s post is a little different than the normal BTD post, but I’m not gonna lie….I had a blast putting this one together! Today I’m partnering up with Swoozies and a few of my favorite bloggers (and friends too!) to share our go-to summer drinks! We’re all sharing our favorite drinks and how to make them – so be sure to check out theirs as well ;)

I’m no master in the kitchen, so I like to keep things pretty simple (as you’ll see from my almost stupid simple drink of choice recipe below ha!) This summer, I’ve been experimenting with champagne-based drinks and all kinds of mojito-like combinations. Because, well…they just taste good! I’m quite the amateur when it comes to mixed drinks. Confession - I kind of hate the taste of alcohol. (eek! #confessions) So when it comes to making drinks, my motto is: the fruitier, the better!

INGREDIENTS
  • 6 mint sprigs
  • 3-5 teaspoons of sugar (just pour it in to taste!)
  • 2 tablespoons of lime juice
  • 1-2 lime wedges
  • champagne
  • crushed ice (because who doesn’t love sonic-style crushed ice?!)
DIRECTIONS (SO Simple!)
  1. Muddle mint, sugar, lime juice and lime until sugar is dissolved
  2. Strain mixture and add to champagne
  3. Top with a few more sprigs of mint and pour it into one of these awesome, jumbo acrylic wine glasses, and you’re all set!

I used to think tulle skirts were impractical. And to be honest, a little part of me still thinks there just a little bit out there. And they most certainly are. I don’t think anyone could deny the fact that a girl has got to be super confident (or just in a really good mood or excited about life or something) to throw on a tulle skirt (outside of ballet class).

But even so, I don’t care. I love them and they make me happy. So big and small events alike, I wear mine all the time – on my birthday and on any given random Tuesday (okay maybe I’d reserve this for Friday…) night. You may feel a little silly, but you know it’s cute and fun and awesome and that every other girl (well maybe not EVERY other girl…) secretly wishes she was rocking a killer tutu too ;) (am I right?!)

I’m sure you’ve caught on to the fact that I’ve been putting in a little extra effort on the SALES front and have been trying to make current sales something you can expect to find on BTD on a regular basis. For this week’s Wednesday Winners post, I’ve rounded up a few more of my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale that I think are TOO good NOT to tell you about! If you missed my round up from the sale last week – you can check out my favorite finds by category in this post!

Now onto the round up above. Have you ever tried on and/or even heard of Barefoot Dreams?! If not, you’re totally missing out. In addition to robes, they also make blankets (and baby gifts) and I’m telling y’all – they’re the softest and SO comfortable. And they also make GREAT gifts (with a monogram added on the robe/blanket?! YES!) I’ve been wanting a BD blanket for-like-ever (!) and might just have to pull the trigger with the reduced price.

And maybe it’s just me but I could ALWAYS use a brand new pair of hanky pankies; those things are like socks these days – I can’t seem to hang onto them for too long before they somehow disappear.

Have you noticed that Coach has stepped up their game lately? I love this bucket style bag for Fall!

And in other news, shopbop is offering an additional 25% OFF TODAY (with code EXTRA25) until midnight on select items – shop the sale here! I just looked through most of the sale items….wowza! (so much greatness to shop!). Here are a few of my favorite finds that you don’t watn to miss out on!

There are a lot of GREAT maxi dresses on sale (available in a decent size run too). I like this basic Sychelles maxi dress cover up on sale for $90 (originally $130) that comes in bright yellow, black and grey – and a similar one by 9Seed for the same price but available in orange too.

If you’re still interested in getting yourself some end-of-summer swim suit cover ups that could almost double as cute tunics to wear out….I like this one by Eberjey (size M/L available). I also love this bold black and white stripe caftan-style cover up by Vix (30% off and available in ALL sizes).  This Milly cover up is still pricey but super cute and 30% off original price (available in all sizes)

And if you’re a Mara Hoffman fan…this little dress available in 2 colors in (as of right now) all sizes is cute. And this loose-fitting short, easy dress is available in all sizes and 30% off. And this super cute crop top (love the colors and unique cut!) available in sizes M & L. This coral print maxi in ALL sizes. And this dress in size M – love it!

This Zinke top is a great throw on for going out OR to dress down and wear during the day – love the color combo (30% OFF // available in S & M)
