DIYHappy Hour: Watermelon Mint Margaritas with Sivan Ayla

Happy Hour: Watermelon Mint Margaritas with Sivan Ayla

In honor of National Tequila Day, we’ve teamed up with one of our fave influencers, Sivan Ayla, to bring you the ultimate tequila cocktail: Watermelon Mint Margaritas! Read below to get her how-to on this perfect summer beverage.

 
Happy Hour: Watermelon Mint Margaritas with Sivan Ayla

Summer is officially here! I feel like I wait all year for this season because it means permanent tans, rosé without guilt, and easy outfit choices. And of course, cocktails for absolutely NO reason! I had to make that part clear since I invited my friend and lifestyle blogger Devon Rachel over on a Tuesday for some margaritas. Then again, Devon is probably the only girl I know that would be down for some impromptu cocktail-ing (knew I liked her for a reason!).

With temps already hitting triple digits here in the Valley, a refreshing, COLD drink is actually pretty necessary. Nothing sounds more refreshing to me than watermelon, cucumber, and mint. Am I right? So why not add a little tequila, line that rim with some tajin or salt, and there you go!
Now I have to be honest, when Devon and I first attempted to make this (as you’ll see in the video below), I added 6oz of tequila!!! Not sure how I got the number so wrong, but between the strength of the alcohol and the supreme saltiness on the rim, we were anything but graceful while taking our first sips. However, I promise you we gave it another shot with the correct ratios and it was beyond yummy. For the full recipe and video tutorial, scroll down.

FashionBridal Guide: What to Wear to a Rehearsal Dinner

Your rehearsal dinner is the last major event before your big day and the official kick off to your wedding weekend! Depending on the size of the wedding, and the wishes of the bride and groom, the rehearsal dinner can be anything from a formal sit-down dinner to a casual outdoor get together. With so much going on leading up to your wedding day, it’s easy for your rehearsal dinner look to take a back seat, which is why we have put together another bridal style guide to make getting ready for the day before the big day easy as can be!

Destination Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Destination

Destination weddings are all about enjoying the beautiful location and taking in the scenery.  A rehearsal dinner for a destination wedding will likely be on the casual side, but be sure to embrace vacation vibes and keep the setting in mind when choosing your outfit. With crochet lace detailing and on-trend statement sleeves, our Love Letters Dress is the perfect option for the bride-to-be. This dress also features a breezy silhouette that will keep you cool and comfortable all night long. If you’re a guest who has made the trip to attend a destination wedding, have fun with your look and choose a vacation dress that you wouldn’t typically wear in your day-to-day life. Bright florals, embroidered details, and two-piece sets are all fabulous options.

Formal Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Formal

If you’ve chosen a formal setting for your rehearsal dinner, you’ll want your attire to be equally elevated. For the bride, choose an elegant midi dress that radiates class. Our Wishful Wanderings White Lace Midi Dress combines delicate lace with satin ribbon ties for the ultimate bridal look. If you’re attending a friend’s rehearsal dinner in a formal setting, we suggest opting for a more modest silhouette, such as a midi or maxi dress, or even a jumpsuit! Our beautiful Love Interest Black Floral Print Maxi Dress or a chic jumpsuit like our Let Me Entertain You Black Satin Jumpsuit are both fantastic options for a formal event.

Casual Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Casual

A casual setting rehearsal dinner is the perfect time for your friends and family to mingle and get to know each other! If you’re having a backyard BBQ or have chosen to host a dinner at a casual restaurant, be sure that your outfit matches the tone of the evening. If you’re the bride, a darling sundress with off-the-shoulder details is the perfect mix of casual with a hint of sexiness. Attending a casual rehearsal dinner as a guest? Go for a cute and playful look with our Seahaven Denim Blue Print Skort Dress, or add some drama with a deep V neckline with our Faithfull the Brand Nova Terra Cotta Floral Print Dress.

Congrats! You made it to the day before the wedding in perfect style! Be sure to share your rehearsal dinner looks with #lovelulus and let us know in the comments which look you love the most!

FashionHow to Wear It: Statement Earrings

We’ve fallen in love with this summer’s statement earring trend. It has quickly become the fashion equivalent of putting on a bold lip to tie together your ensemble, elevating any basic look in a matter of seconds. But with something so daring, it can sometimes be intimidating to add into your regular outfit rotation. Check out our styling ideas below for how to pair fun statement earrings with your favorite summer styles if  you aren’t sure how to wear this chic summer trend!

Feeling adventurous? Pair your new earrings with a bright off-the-shoulder dress for a vibrant casual look! Add trendy accessories like a pom pom bag and gold sandals to make the ultimate summer statement.

The easiest way to style this accessory is with a favorite piece you already have in your wardrobe! Transition your classic white dress into a summer must-have with a pair of bright statement earrings that pop against the crisp color. As demonstrated above, this beachy ensemble is best paired with muted accents for a summer chic #OOTD that is totally focused on your statement making jewelry.

We are all ecstatic that hoops have returned as a trendy fashion fave, and they have easily become a wardrobe staple. Pair oversized hoops with mirrored sunnies to complete any daytime outfit with minimal effort, or wear a pair with your trusty LBD to spice things up!

Are you ready for date night?! Spice up your sexy bodycon dress with gold statement hoops. While we love the classic, dainty gold hoop, if you’re in the mood for something a bit more daring, the statement gold hoop might be your best match! Keep the focus up top with bold makeup and tousled hair to complete the sex kitten effect.

 

These are just a few of our favorite ways to add this trend into your summer wardrobe, but you can easily mix and match and add statement earrings to every outfit you’re wearing this summer. What’s your favorite way to style the statement earring trend? Let us know how you plan to wear yours in the comments below!
