orange dreamsicle.

this is the probably the one coat that i own, and i've had it for over ten years. i'd love to wear it more often, but our weather just doesn't allow for anything like this.
it's black velour and quite heavy.

this weekend my friend got me hooked on a drink that i now call the orange dreamsicle. it's a screwdriver (orange juice + vodka) made with pinnacle whipped vodka. the flavored vodka makes the consistency seem creamy and thick. the following day, i ran out and got two bottles...one to replenish my friend's stock and one for me. i've been indulging in orange dreamsicles all week.

 
yummmmm.

  2. Your black coat looks oh so cozy, I would love to have something like that here, but I can imagine it's too warm where you are. I love the striped top and the bright coloured jacket, it's such a beautiful combination! That drink sounds sooo delicious

  4. The coat is really pretty. Send it to Cincinnati! I would get plenty of use out of it. ;)

    Your blazer is a great cut and color. It looks really good.

    And of course your accessories are on the spot. Love the necklace especially.

  20. I bought that Pinnacle vodka in the chocolate chip cookie dough flavor w/out thinking about what to mix it with. I still can't think of anything that isn't completely disgusting (milk). Maybe your friend has a suggestion. I also have the whipped cream flavor at home. (Note to self: pick up orange juice tonight.)

    1. when in doubt, i mix flavored vodkas with 7up. the 7up is pretty flavorless, allowing you to taste the vodka, and the soda gives it the fizz.

      you could also add it to sparkling water for a refreshing drink on a hot afternoon.

      or, you could just sip it...on the rocks, if you dare!

  31. Dreamsicle? yumz. I haven't had a screwdriver in a long time! (too many calories, too many ingredients for me to buy) I stick with my gin and tonic and indulge way too much. hahahaha.

  32. Oh yes, my neighbor/friend got me hooked on that same drink - yum! When she told me about that vodka, iwas like "Vodka that tastes like whipped cream!? I'm all in!"

  33. I can't imagine only having one coat. It's still snowing here. And I really need to hunt down some of this whipped flavoured vodka business, that sounds like heaven.
