Rosé All Day

As summer reaches its high in July, it’s time to put the top down and head for the beach with a new book or to a friend’s backyard strung with lights and a killer playlist featuring alt-J, Lana Del Rey and Florence + The Machine. Summer whites and bare feet are my uniform in this warm weather and sunny sky. With temperatures reaching +100° F, the best way to stay cool is with a new found love for the refreshing duo of rosé and popsicles.

Inspiration for the (brilliant!) combination of rosé and popsicles comes from a favorite restaurant nestled in the heart of West Hollywood called Ysabel. Known for its modern patio and mixology-focused cocktails, no one can resist the Brunch cocktail menu! It’s a regular on my restaurant rotation when I visit Los Angeles.

Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • Bouvet Brut Rosé
  • All Natural GoodPops in Strawberry (with real ingredients- for us health nuts who strive to maintain a balanced diet of wine and salad)

Directions:

Pour large small glass of chilled rosé. Place popsicle in glass. Enjoy!

A crisp white shirt and denim shorts are a timeless look for small get togethers during summer. Pair with tan lace up sandals and a glass of rosé for effortless vibes. Don’t forget to add my latest obsession: O.P.I nail polish, Tiramisu for Two.

How to Brunch in Style

To me, brunch is no joke, and your get up is just as important as the Instagramable avocado toast you ordered.

Find out what style best suits your morning cravings to ensure that you brunch in style. Cue your Insta filters.
