Saturday evening our friends decided to throw an impromptu bbq, which was awesome because Darrell & I had no sitter planned, and it's always easier for us to bring Claire with us to a friend's private home. Not so easy? Getting dressed for the night. I think I spent 30 minutes tearing my closet apart, because so far summer has been really mild & I've been able to stay more covered up; Saturday it was over 100 degrees! After convincing my husband I'd totally lost it, I managed to pull together this incredibly basic but comfy outfit, which is actually a dress I deemed too bare on top combined with a simple black tee. On a side note, why do all the clothes you used to think were downright conservative suddenly seem too short, too tight, too revealing once you become a mom?
Since this style post isn't too instructive, I thought I'd better tell you about the cocktail I'm drinking. It's a super refreshing low calorie sipper that's perfect for this late summer heat wave.
Strawberry Basil Prosecco
1 bottle prosecco
10 basil leaves
In a blender or food processor, combine the strawberries and basil until pureed. Mix together the puree & prosecco, and add to the top several "smacked" basil leaves (clap the leaves between your hands to release the flavor!) When pouring for guests, serve over ice.
