Let’s be real, on most Friday nights you’ll find me curled up on my couch, with takeout, my dog, and a great movie. I love staying in on the weekends and waking up refreshed in the morning. BUT sometimes it is fun to get dolled up, sip on a few cocktails, and dance the night away with friends! When I was in Paris last month, my girlfriend and I had a blast visiting spots like Bar Hemingway at the Ritz Paris – which makes some of the prettiest cocktails I’ve ever seen (check them out on my Travel App), and Hotel Costes. My drink of choice is always a dirty martini, extra dirty. If they don’t have that or if I’m in the mood for something more refreshing I go with a cucumber martini, a French 75 (with vodka instead of gin), or a club soda with vodka and lemon. I like my cocktails to be citrusy, tangy and not overly sweet or full of additives.
If you haven’t already visited Bar Hemingway – you must go! It’s so quaint + cozy. They add gorgeous roses to every drink, and have some really inventive flavor combos on their menu. You’ll be in awe of the Ritz lobby when you walk in – serious jaw to the floor reaction!!! The chandeliers, the velvet, the flowers – every detail is perfection.
I wore this beautiful AS by DF embellished dress for our fun night out. I love rocking a little embellishment or fringe when I go out. I also love a cream dress for evening. It’s a nice change from the sea of black dresses you usually see, and cream just looks really beautiful and ethereal on! I currently have my eye on this Self Portrait white dress for spring. It could easily be a daytime or evening look depending on what shoes you wear with it. I can see myself wearing it with a beige trench and Chanel flats. This is another great option – and under $100.
