Cinco de Mayo is coming up, which means it's margarita time! I tried out a pineapple margarita, and it turned out light and frothy and in such a beautiful shade. Use fresh pineapple, it makes all the difference.
This colorblock dress from ModCloth is simple and summery. I love the primary color combination and how light and breezy it is. Perfect for the hot days and margarita sipping that summer will bring.
