Cobalt Crush

Beach living means laid back style. Style that translates day to night, easily goes from playground to cafe; I need clothes that can do it all!!   For this outfit post, I'm thinking of the cobalt blue of the deep waters. I often get my color inspiration from nature, and what's more beautiful than the waters of the Gulf?! I love cobalt blue paired with crisp white, black, and fuschia accents. Top it off with a hat because it's no secret that I don't believe in washing my hair daily. Ain't no momma got time for that.

Bella Dahl tops are meant to be lived in. This brand is a staple in my closet.  I love the spilt back (for a quick glimpse of that bootay!) and flowy fit.  This easy wearing, lightweight top keeps you covered, but cool during the dog days of summer.

I purchased this top from Tulipano Boutique in Atlanta. I really enjoyed shopping there this past weekend.

Birkenstocks are back and just as chic as ever. I love this style, The Gizeh sandal,  and there are a gazillion color combinations to choose from.  In addition to the black, I have a pair in tobacco oiled leather, which is another versatile color.

Heidi and the Olsen twins have been photographed countless times in their Gizeh sandals. Warning: Just like you remember from the good ol' days, they did hurt my feet for about a week and a half of constant wearing.

I love these goodies also purchased in ATL this past weekend. The sea foam and lavender bead bracelets are from Tulipano boutique. The other accessories were found at J.Crew. I'm continuing to show love to the tassel trend.

These Art Deco inspired earrings are going to be ones I reach for over and over again. They have the perfect amount of movement and are lightweight. At just $38, everyone should have these in their jewel box.

For dinner out, trade the Birks for some heels and you're good to go!

In other news, I make incredibly delicious daquiris. My specialty is a fresh peach daiquiri that, I can not lie, is AMAZEballs. They're (in my mind) world famous. It's your lucky day, Fox Den readers because I am going to gift you with my recipe. Get out your blenders! 

Fox Den Daiquiri recipe (more of a loose guideline for what to throw in):

1/4 ish can of Bacardi limeade frozen concentrate

3ish Chilton County peaches (white nectarines work too)

I usually add a couple frozen strawberries or blueberries too (Daiquiri will no longer be peach colored, duh)

Bacardi Coconut Rum - the more the merrier

5-6 Mint leaves

Blend and top with cool whip.  

You can thank me later.

Happy Blending! Xo, e


Date weekend: Atlanta

Mr. Fox and I love to entertain and we usually use our weekends without Mr. Hudson to do just that.  Date nights are few these days.  Date weekends, the rarest of all,  are SO GOOD.  No responsibilities, no pressure to get ready in under 10 minutes, no one trying to ruin your house/kill themselves while you're getting ready, uninterrupted conversation with your spouse, uninterrupted dinner with your spouse, flirting with your husband in a crowded bar. . . nothing I treasure more these days. Thank the Lord for grandparents who took on a sick baby and gave us a weekend away. It was a blast!  It felt like our newlywed days when we would head to Atlanta on a whim and explore a new restaurant, or new shop, or just enjoy a mini getaway.  

Here's a little about what we did, where we ate, and what I wore. 

Friday night we went to one of Ford Fry's relatively new restaurants, King + Duke. It was delicious. I loved the interiors. My favorite interior detail was these huge drum pendants that had tiny twinkling LED lights that seemed to be in the shape of different constellations. It was the coolest. I asked our waiter about them, but he had never even noticed it before! Maybe someone reading this knows more about those. I'd love to hear about them!

The drinks were fantastic. Mr. Fox had an Old Ironsides and I had my favorite, a Moscow Mule. 

My favorite dish of those we tried was the Maine Crab Salad. It was perfection. Light, citrusy, sweet crab that I could have eaten two more platefuls. It's a must try. 

This is what I wore:

My friend recommended Taqueria del Sol for lunch. It was the perfect shopping break lunch spot! The fried chicken tacos were hands down my favorite. Their salsa was delicious! The green tomatillo salsa was my top pick. Will definitely be heading back to this spot next time we are in ATL. 

Those are just a couple of the spots we tried in Atlanta this past weeked. I'm already ready to go back! Hope your weekend was fabulously recharging!
