It's starting to feel like spring here, so I guess the rain was fitting. I loved this outfit, the paper bag waist jeans from Mara Hoffman paired with this white ALC cropped blouse was shockingly comfortable. I love that this is essentially a white tee and jeans, familiar and casual while also feeling pulled together and special. But my favorite part of this outfit is the silk bandana from Ozma of California.
I have to admit that the only Lemon Drop I’d had previously to making this one was from dive bars during university, and they were awful. I don’t know what I was expecting when I made this, but it couldn’t have been more different from the ones I’d had before. There really isn’t any reason why this cocktail shouldn’t be delicious, sour mix is the enemy of a well made cocktail. Every time I run into a classic cocktail that I had written off because it was made so badly made I really feel like this is a worth while endeavor. I'd love to hear from you about any classic cocktails, either because you love them or because you think they're awful.
