No Mess Monday: ASOS Starlight Platform Loafers

 

Berry Blue Monday

ASOS Starlight Platform Loafers in Blue with Tassels

Monday is no day for loafing around. It’s the day when most of us get back to business. While your mood may be all work and no play today, don’t be a dull girl. A pair of loafer inspired pumps in a bold color, like these Starlight Platform Loafers from ASOS is the perfect mix of work and whimsy. The menswear inspired loafer styling and tassel detail make them a great match for suits during the day. The bright blue hue, snake embossing, chunky 5 inch heel and 1 inch platform mean they’ll also work with more casual looks, like jeans and this season’s work shorts trend. All in all, they say you know how to dance at the crossroads between work and play. Oh, and they’re on sale for $85.05, down from $170.10.

 

Midnight Blue Margarita

You can’t sip a “chick” drink in shoes that say you can hang with the boys, but that doesn’t mean you have to order your liquor straight up or with a boring mixer like they often do. Try a Midnight Blue Margarita (recipe from www.diy-cocktails.com, image by Jackson Stakeman). The tequila makes it strong enough to take the day’s edge off, but the blue curacao and blueberry syrup will lessen the bite.

Recipe:

1.5 ounces Don Julio Tequila Blanco
.5 ounces blue curacao
.75 ounces blueberry syrup*
.5 ounces meyer lemon juice

Shake ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker, then serve in a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with blueberries speared on a cocktail toothpick.

*Blueberry syrup

.5 cups water
.5 cups sugar
.5 cups blueberries

Bring ingredients to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Let the mixture cool, then strain out blueberries.

**The goal here is to forget your troubles for a bit but remember that you still have to work tomorrow morning. That said, drink responsibly.
