When is it considered too early to start drinking?  Asking for a friend!  That being said, this article is all about matching your outfit with your favorite adult beverage.  And I highly suggest you buzz on over to Mrs. Twist’s “quarantini” bar for delicious mixology recipes!   

So let me start by quoting Garth Brooks:  “I’ve got friends in low places, where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away.”  It doesn’t get any better than a whiskey margarita…right?  So I’m thinking a fun flowy midi skirt is ideal for this drinking scenario.  Free People offers the ultimate in bohemian style with their embroidered midi dress….available in 10 colors!  But back to the margaritas….I’ll take mine on the rocks with salt!

“Blame it all on my roots, I showed up in boots, and ruined your black-tie affair.”  So here’s the good news…in Texas, you can show up at any event, even a black-tie affair wearing boots.  Plus, I’m pretty sure beer and boots are a match made in heaven!  Did you know Dillard’s has a great selection of cowboy boots, and they look absolutely darling with floral dresses and skirts? To find the coolest in cowgirl/boho fashion, take a look at the fabulous options from Spell and the Gypsy.  

“Beer on whiskey, mighty risky.  Whiskey on wine…mighty fine!”  So what pairs well with wine?  Everything….but I do have a few delicious ideas.  I did a little closet digging and discovered a pair of wide-legged pants from a few years back….perfect for wine tasting.  When I think of Napa and Sonoma, anything flowy gives that cool wine country vibe.  And FYI…a flowy maxi dress pairs well with a Paso Roble Pinot Noir! 

To quote my 90-year-old dad, “I do my best thinkin’ when I’ve been drinkin’, and lately, I’ve been thinkin’ bout you.”  True story…you can’t make this stuff up!  So let’s start “thinkin’” about what to wear poolside.  We think J Crew’s neon pink tunic would be the perfect complement to any umbrella embellished drink.  Don’t you agree?  And Anthropologie’s Cali lounge pants are ideal for hanging out at the pool bar….while sipping a vodka tonic!

By the way, I’m blaming this article “all on my roots”….just saying!
