No Mess Monday: Charlotte Olympia Pumps & Laphroaig Quarter Cask

A Plaid Mama Jama

On your Feet

Charlotte Olympia Plaid Jolene Pump

Did you know that today is National Tartan Day? Well, now you have a fun fact for happy hour. Until it's time to raise a glass, stomp out your Monday blues in a pair of plaid shoes. Equal parts playful and polished, Charlotte Olympia's canvas plaid Jolene (available at for $904) pump is a great desk-to-drinks option. Wear it with denim, a navy blue suit or a striped pencil skirt and crisp white shirt. 

In Your Glass

Laphroaig Quarter Cask cocktail

Among the smokier scotcthes, Laphroaig is a hit among the cigar set. Ordering it at a bar earns you automatic cool-girl cred. However, if you're not into straight scotch, order it in a cocktail, like the "Plaid and Peated." The elderflower liqueur will round out any harsh edges on the flavor while leaving its essence intact.
