As for the dress, I went searching for an in-between seasons sort of outfit, and I found this cute design from Ruche. I love the plaid pattern and the pleats, and while the colors are perfect for fall, the cut still works in warm weather.
Spiked Sweet Tea
16 oz. cold sweet tea
4 oz. bourbon (or more if you prefer)
1/2 oz. lemon juice
6 torn mint leaves
Use your tried and true sweet tea recipe. To make a half gallon, I bring 4 cups of water to a boil and add 6 tea bags (Lipton and Luzianne are generally what you find in southern households). Steep for 4 minutes, remove tea bags and pour tea into pitcher. Add 3/4 cup of sugar while the tea is still hot, stir until dissolved and add four more cups of water. Refrigerate until cold.
Muddle bourbon, lemon juice and mint leaves and combine with 16 oz. of cold sweet tea. Pour over ice and garnish with mint and a slice of lemon. Serves 2.
