Cocktail Hour – The South Side

It’s been a busy week this week.  Some blog maintenance, catching up with real life, etc.  So, this week’s cocktail hour is a casual one.  My outfit this week is inspired by the casual, yet elegant French style I saw in Paris (yes, still riding on the Parisian high).

To sip on while I’m relaxing this Friday evening, a lesser know, but still delicious gin cocktail called the South Side.  Crisp and citrus-y, it’s a perfect ending to a hectic week.
