Let’s talk about my obsession with stripes. I pretty much wear them all year round but there is nothing like a summer stripe. This mostly white version makes me feel like a sailor and I am instantly transported to a place by the water. I also finally got to sport my new envelope clutch. The lovely Eliot of the twitter handle CoachBlkrWomen gifted me this GORGEOUS electric blue clutch. There is a little back story to the monogram. The Tom Collins is one of my favorite summer time cocktails and I recently found out that Miss Eliot and my gal pal Jenni had similar obsessions. We started calling ourselves the “Tom Collins Groupies” and I guess the name stuck enough for this monogrammed goodie to make its way to me. Eliot, you are a DOLL! What can I say, a girl loves a good cocktail in the summer time.
