Summertime

Although I was super excited to enjoy the hot summer weather, it seems June gloom has turned into July Nature Looks Like It Wants To Cry (it’s kind of hard to find something weather-related that rhymes with July).  Well, that didn’t stop me from making the best batch of Sangria I’ve ever made this weekend.  I’d share with you the recipe I used, but of course I can’t find it…and I didn’t really follow the recipe, like normal.  But most recipes online use about the same ratio of ingredients, so it’s really just a matter of personal taste.  But trust me when I say that the simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar) is necessary- it adds that needed kiss of sweetness to the drink.

I’ll just show you a picture and let you marvel at my bartending skills:

Delicious-looking, isn’t it?

Anyways, drinking sangria and savoring what little warm weather we had this weekend just inspired me to draw up an outfit reminiscent of summertime, Spain, poolside parties, etc.  White and bright colors always look crisp and fresh and for once I didn’t pick pieces that are way too expensive and out of my budget.
