Dark and Stormy

Dark and stormy's are definitely in the running for my favorite drink ever. They are absolutely delicious, I only discovered them after moving to Annapolis. They are made with dark rum (Gosling's) and ginger beer (Barritt's) with a slice of lime. YUM. I make all my friends try it when they come visit me.

The reason that the post is titled "Dark and Stormy" is because of two reasons. 1. I am wearing dark colors right now, crazy for July! and 2. I have a major grumpy-face going on. The reason I'm wearing this outfit is because our store was hosting a breakfast event in honor of our new fall line, so I felt that wearing our new fall stuff would probably be a good idea. I am grumpy because it is way too hot to wear a sweater in July. I do love this outfit, I tend to gravitate towards brighter shades but lately I've been appreciating the forgiving nature of black.

What I'm wearing:
grey Martin + Osa cowlneck sweater
black sateen Martin + Osa skirt (has pockets AND an exposed zipper, I knew I had to have it)
Modern Vintage shoes
black studded Rebecca Minkoff Devote tote
