Miami Vice

It's Memorial Day weekend south of the border! Here in Canada, we had our Victoria Day long weekend last week (thank goodness for Monday off as I was exhausted from traveling). I'm linking up with longdistanceloving for an outfit that best represents the holiday, so I saved the red, white, and blue for today. 

Shirt: BB Dakota (Twisted Muse, Halifax)
Tank: Le Chateau (Halifax)
Skirt: Gap (Halifax)
Shoes: Aldo (Halifax)
Clutch: Guess (Century 21, NYC)
Earrings: The Black Market (Halifax)
Belt: Forever 21 (South Portland)

I wish I could take all the scenery from Jamaica home with me... It was heaven for a style blogger. My photographer (mom) was incredibly patient and took all the photos. I almost fired her after she dropped my camera lens first into the sand, but it survived. Even if it had've broken, it would've forced me to buy a "real one", which wouldn't be a bad thing :)

Miami Vice
5 oz 151 “overproof” rum
1 can frozen piña colada mix
1 can frozen daiquiri mix
2 c. ice
Fresh strawberries
Blend piña colada mix with 2.5 oz of rum and 1 c. ice in a blender. Set aside. Blend daiquiri mix with 2.5 oz of rum and 1 c. ice in a blender. Fill half a glass with the piña colada, rum and ice mixture then add the daiquiri, rum and ice mixture to the top. Garnish with strawberries.
I don't even want to think about how many calories were in one of these drinks, but they were SO GOOD!

You look so lovely in this outfit! I love the patterns on your blouse, and it goes so well with the jean skirt :) Your poor mom probably felt bad after she almost broke your camera hehe... but she did a GREAT job taking the pictures!!

Glad I found your blog today!
