Color Rush

8.02.2012


Xhilaration maxi dress (we love this steal too), 
Mossimo straw clutch (last seen here), 
Giza Ring c/o Jewelmint
Jeweled sandals c/o  Fibi and Clo.

Sometimes work gets so hectic that all I want to do is strap on a pair of sandals, toss on a loose dress, and head to the closest happy hour I can find.

That's just what we did a few days ago at Union Pool, a chill and unassuming bar that's now only 2 blocks from Micol's new apartment. Like most bars we tend to frequent in the summertime, they've got a great backyard... and a great happy hour! Equipped with picnic tables, an outdoor bar, and a taco truck for when we got the munchies, it was the perfect way to unwind after a long day. 

Plus, how fun is that colorful wall? My bright accessories and punchy print of the dress seemed to be made for it.
