Almost There Thursday: Cole Haan Lucinda Air Oxfords

 

Brogue-en Heels

 

Cole Haan Lucinda Oxford ShoesNBooze

 

Pssst! Don’t tell the boss, but the week is pretty much over. Even if your boss just happens to be the person you see in the mirror, I’m guessing you’ve had it up to here (picture my hand at eye level) with his or her crap this week. You made it over the hump, but if that’s not enough to turn up the corners of your mouth, wear a pair of shoes that make your eyes AND your toes happy. The Lucinda Air by Cole Haan, with its unexpected color combination, sharp brogue detailing and Nike Air technology should do the trick. They say you understand the value of practical things like work and rules, but you’re also well aware of your freedom to add your own spin. The 3.5 inch heel, coupled with the Nike Air-enhanced footbed will also be a nice break from your usual 5 inch stilettos.

 

 

Tullamore Dew Brogue ShoesNBooze

Since your shoes’ style has Irish roots, your drink for the evening should follow suit (pun intended). When you clink glasses with your mates this evening, let yours contain a Brogue. This simple mixture of Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey and Irish Mist Liqueur will knock the edge off more quickly than a boxer’s jab, and if you drink it too quickly you may feel like you’ve gotten a punch to the chest. However, sipping it will reveal a smooth, smoky flavor that’s slightly sweetened with honey but still respectable enough to get you cool points from the guys. However slowly you drink, still try not to drink to many. I’d hate to hear that you ended up in a bar fight because someone called you drunk.

Recipe (via Bar None Drinks):

1 1/2 oz. Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey

3/4 oz. Irish Mist

Serve in a rocks glass over ice.

 

*Please drink responsibly
