Boozy Tuesday, Vol. 7

It’s that time again (and I don’t just mean the liquor-loving blues-be-gone Boozy Tuesday to ease your mid-week melancholia). Back-to-school season. From crayons to calculus, brown bag lunches to books, backpacks, and binders, it’s enough overwhelm to send anyone to the bar. So, to ease your educational woes, this week’s creative cocktail is a tipsy toast to celebrate the start of a new semester…considering, of course, you’re of the legal age.

With autumn in toe and those lazy, hazy days of summer facing their finality, it seems high time for a hiatus of the vodka variety. In short, it’s a little less than ladylike to be lifting tropical toasts in any other season but summer. So until the days of sunscreen and neoprene return in nine months, Boozy Tuesday will no longer be a weekly feature at SxS…with the occasional exception of an eggnog elixir or spicy icy cider every now and again.

The key to any good outfit lies in the accessories.  The wrong ring, a misplaced muffler, an off-hue shoe, and an entire ensemble becomes fodder for the fashion squad.  I jest, but so much can be said in the details of a day’s dress.  And while us female folk have the prime pickings when it comes to ensemble embellishments, sometimes it’s better to borrow from the boys.  After all, you know what they say about greener pastures…

So here’s to the style of suspenders, a look for all my britches + pantyhoes.

Boozy Tuesday, Vol. 6

large

This week’s Tuesday toast falls right at the peak of a mega meteor marathon, making it just the stellar spectacle that begs for some booze . The early weeks of August are an astronomer’s delight as the annual Perseid Meteor Shower falls into orbit, scattering shooting stars by the bounty. A pitcher of Stargazer’s Sangria and the appropriate cinema, sounds, and styles for an evening under the stars are certainly in order…the perfect celebration of sunmer’s dwindling days. So craft this cocktail, get cozy, and make a multitude of wishes on the surplus of shooting stars you’ll spot overhead.
