Drink it! Heat & Honey Margarita 

 

Looks like the weather is going to be sunny and gorgeous here in Boston- one last hurruh for summer.

Maybe time for one last batch of margaritas too?  Who am I kidding, I need no excuse to whip up a batch of margs.

You could take the time to make your own simple syrup for this cocktail- boil up some honey, sugar, water, and spicy peppers. But why do the work when you can just as simply throw in some Mike's Hot Honey? Made in Brooklyn and sold locally at Olives and Grace (remember Sofi and this shop from my interview last week?). You won't be able to stop using it. From cocktails to bruschetta (which I used it on last night). It's amazing. I think I've finally found a condiment that will give sriracha a run for its money.

But you came here for a cocktail!

Lani Loves: Super 

 

What I am loving this week.

Or what I just bought.

More often than not, both.

 

Meet the sunglass version of my glasses by Super. Shiny. Neutral. Pleasing to the eye in all ways.

 

I want these in my life.

A Cool Mom Dress (Yes, They Exist)

Above: Ace and Jig dress via Covet and Lou, Isabel Marant Crisi boots, Jerome Dreyfuss bag, Club Monaco belt (old)

 

See, I told you cool mom dresses exist. This number from Ace and Jig is comfy. Stylish. Added bonus, the pattern is a nice deep blue that hides stains from dirty little toddler fingers. Mom for the win. 

Another super comfy trend I am digging (seen on all the stylish ladies in NYC last weekend)....sneakers as cool wear, not athletic wear. Not so much the wedge Marant sneaker, though they are still around and kicking, but B&W Nikes (saw tons of Roshe), old school New Balance, classic Vans, or very fancy sneakers, they all looked amazing. Your feet can thank me later.

Who: As in, who am I listening to. Jack White, Lazaretto. Rock god. Secret boyfriend. 

What: As in, what went down this week/end. Much needed girl & shopping time with some wonderful friends. Picked up Frame Le Garcon jeans (seriously, OMG comfortable denim) and a new Killian scent, Sacred Wood. There are a couple new Killian scents coming out next week that I am dying to try too. Good scents just make great sense. 

Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about. 

Local brainchild/app Boutikey from Tiana Haraguchi launched ecommerce at http://www.shopboutikey.com/ further expanding your local shopping options on the internets. The site currently features curated selections from Ku de Ta, Pretty Reckless, Haven, Heart & Sole and Vamped Boutique, with plans to expand. You had me at ecommerce.
