Lingerista Lifestyle: Sangrias & Summer Lounge Wear

Winding down from the 4th of July?

If you need to take a break, kick your feet up and settle down after the festivities, here's a good recipe to relax and still enjoy summer:

  • Get into a cozy lightweight robe, chemise, or babydoll

  • Pour a glass of homemade Sangria (see recipe below)

  • Light some candles on the back deck (preferably a few citronella ones too)

  • Sit back and take a deep breath

  • Watch the sunset or look at the stars

Now that is what I call enjoying the moment and "Celebrating Your Inner Eve!"

Trellis Babydoll Top and Tap Pant in the image (right) is by Christine Vancouver. I've seen both pieces in person and they're pure Heaven!

They can be purchased at Faire Frou Frou for under $150. According to Madamoiselle Frou Frou, "The babydoll top can also be worn as outerwear - just layer it over a neutral cami and you're set! Note that the Trellis pieces are not currently available online; just at our Studio City boutique. If interested, please e~mail us (Faire Frou Frou)."

For my notorious Sangria recipe, to top off the evening, look below...


Eve's Infamous Sangria:

2 Oranges
2 Lemons
Grapes
Strawberries
Blackberries
1 Cup Sugar
1 Bottle White Wine (dry)
1 Bottle Red Wine (dry)
Blackberry Brandy ~ A Splash

Combine the sugar, wines, and brandy in a large pot. Squeeze the juice of 1 orange and 2 lemons. Stir.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Overnight is preferred.

Add a sliced orange, strawberries, grapes, and blackberries. Serve.

Enjoy!
