Friday Distractions: Orange You Glad It's Friday?

Friday Distractions: Orange You Glad It's Friday?

Being quite punny with my blog title today, why, because it's heavily influenced by the cheery color Orange!  It's such an uplifting, warm color and a fun color to wear in the Spring and Summer.  The first thing you need do to this Friday to get in a sunshiny, orangey mood is shop some of Carve Designs great pieces in our Sunkiss color.  The Jones Dress is one of my favorites; easy to wear, stylish drop waist and uneven hem, three different colors...Sunkiss looks amazing with a tan, Anchor stripe is a classic and Ivory Montego is a wear-everywhere print.  Throw on with flip flops for a day time look or dress it up with drop earrings and leather sandals and wear it out for dinner.  It is so flattering I get multiple compliments when I wear it, so yeah, that puts me in a great mood.


Second thing you need to do is watch Vulfpeck's insanely adorable music video for Back Pocket.  The song is so uplifting and the video is so gleeful it nearly brought me to tears!


Your next move is to whip up this blood orange and mint mojito and sip it while soaking in rays from the big orange sun.  How delicious does this look!?

 Here's what you need:

  • 1 oz Blood orange, juice
  • 8 sprigs Mint
  • 1 oz Lime juice
  • 1 tbsp Simple syrup
  • 2 oz Sparkling water
  • 1 oz Rum, light

The great news, this cocktail takes less than 5 minutes to make. Simply, muddle the mint and the lime juice together in a glass. Top with rum, blood orange juice and simple syrup. Top with the sparkling water and enjoy!

Your Friday is complete!
