Inspiring Style: Cocktail Dresses Inspired by Cocktail Drinks

5/10/2013

I'm still very much so enjoying the spring, but I'm also gearing up for summer as I'm looking forward to a wedding and a nice island vacation. And I know some of you might also be prepping for summer weddings and holiday fun. When I think of summer, I think of lounging and having a good time. So I thought I'd share with you some cocktail outfits inspired by, well...cocktails.

♥ Blueberry Mojito ♥
Cocktail: fresh blueberries, mint leaves, limes, sugar, rum and club soda
Look: Anything for Blue dress (Modcloth) ~ Figure-fit blazer (H&M) ~ Night at the Musical flats (Modcloth)
♥ Jasmine Gin Fizz ♥
Cocktail: Jasmine Gin, lemon juice, honey, egg white, chilled club soda, Jasmine flowers
Look: Linea Weekend striped top (House of Fraser) ~ Gladiator sandals (Dorothy Perkins) ~ Double pleat calf skirt (Topshop)
♥ Blood Orange Old Fashioned ♥
Cocktail: Rye, blood orange bitters, sugar, Agave nectar, lemon twist, blood orange peel
Look: Anabelle's stone necklace (Fantasy Jewelry Box) ~ Polka dot skater dress (AX Paris) ~ Red buckle belt (Forever 21) ~ Red chain peep toe wedge (River Island)~~~

  1. All of them are gorgeous, I'd wear any of them. Spring keeps going up and down here, so I haven't fully been able to let go of the wintery stuff just yet, well more rain gear than anything. But, these bright colours would do even on rainy days and make them brighter :)) Great choices. Have a fun weekend x

    P.S. Back in the day, when I was a bartender, I always hated making old fashioned style drinks. What a pain to muddle all that sugar when you're busy!
