Get the Look: Cinco de Mayo

I love Cinco de Mayo – it’s an awesome holiday full of chips, salsa, margaritas, and a pretty great excuse to play dress up ( … in lots of color!) And hubby and I have made it a bit of a tradition to throw a Cinco de Mayo fiesta – even if we are occasionally a few weeks late (this year we’ll be out of town … but I’m thinking I won’t let that stop me from throwing a mid-June/July fiesta.) We usually keep it pretty casual, we serve a TON of food, and the drinks are endless, so I love the idea of a sweet little dress, a great pair of heels (that can easily be swapped out for flats), and plenty of coasters to go around.  (If you’re throwing a fiesta of your own, don’t forget to try my Sauza-rita Margarita recipe: easy to make and oh-so-good.)

By the way, how adorable is that embroidered dog bed?  Oh, Free People, you’re so clever!

    I had a great time celebrating last year, but I’m too busy with bridal things this year to celebrate. Those shorts are too fun- I’d definitely be wearing them if I was going out!

    Yes, yes, YES to those shorts. So adorable!

    I have a post queued for tomorrow with those fun shorts! Great picks for the holiday Lexi. I saw that cute doggie bed on A Piece of Toast and totally wish I had a sweet pooch so I could pick it up.
