Summer Sips & Socializing


On Thursday, the breeziest most beautiful day of Summer so far, I donned a fuchsia Zara frock and zipped over to Muse Lounge with my fellow pink-loving friend, Sally (who was pretty in a pink & green frock from Periwinkle), for some cocktails for a good cause.

Pink to Drink, sponsored by DC Modern Luxury and The Madison, was a fundraiser to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Guests were decked out on the deck in pink, the suggested signature shade of the evening, as they sipped refreshing Madison margaritas.

The comfy sofas on the rooftop of Muse, along with copies of the latest edition of DC Modern Luxury magazine, was the perfect setting for the event.  (You can check out their cool new digital version here.)

We were meeting colleagues at the Four Seasons for some more summer sips and socializing so unfortunately weren’t able to linger – but by the looks of the hordes of honeysuckle and flocks of fuchsia pouring in, it was no doubt going to be quite a soirée!

The Four Seasons was fabulous fun as well. We feasted on fried pickles and prosecco while enjoying the glamorous and chic scenery on the patio. We clinked our glasses to the breezy night and summer…ahhh…sundresses, sassy sandals, seersucker, summery sips, sand, surf… Too bad we couldn’t have more nights like these.

Or could we? We live in DC after all! There are endless opportunities for summer fun and mingling - I’ll bet you could find a chic event on any given night. Of course nothing beats getting away for a destination vacation, but in between there is plenty in-town to take you away from the daily grind.

And while you’re out on the town, don’t have so much fun that you forget your phone while primping in the ladies room of the Four Seasons. If you’re lucky like I was that night – you realize seconds after your taxi starts to pull away that you don’t have it. So merci, Monsieur Taxi Driver, and the sweet mademoiselle who recovered my beloved iPhone for me!
