Two things I love about Summer: gingham dresses and cold brew. Sharing where to score this dress on sale and my fool proof cold brew recipe on the blog today!
Doesn’t this dress speak fun picnic in the summer? If only I was enjoying a fun picnic right now. It is easy to style since it’s a statement dress. I love wearing it with more neutral accessories to let the dress really speak for itself.
I was worried about the slit at first but it’s low enough that when the wind blows you stay completely modest. This is a great option for busy mamas because you can stay modest while pickup kiddos or running after them!
You can also wear this with either a jean jacket or utility jacket and booties for Fall!
Soooooo, what is Cold Brew? It’s coffee with 67% less acidity and can last up to two weeks!
Do I need a cool coffee maker for it? NO! Measuring cup, bowl, and strainer!
How strong is it? Very very strong. It’s like a coffee concentrate so it makes great iced lattes or small iced coffees. It can be diluted with water as well!
