Summer Fashion with Here Today

By Guest Blogger Carylee from More Pieces of Me.

I wanted to see if I could pull together an entire summer look within the constraints of Here Today’s “Embellish” department. The first piece I was drawn to was this blush tassel necklace because a) tassels and b) blush. What a perfect pairing. Everything else fell into place pretty naturally after that!

Nothing says “summer” better than a white top! The color pop embroidery on this one makes it that much more special. It has adjustable straps which ensure a perfect fit up top, while the flowy bodice keeps it light and airy. The coordinating soft shorts were a no brainer. I almost picked up an aztec print instead, but decided to keep the overall look monochromatic.

Everyone needs a giant floppy hat in their life! I fell in love with this one immediately. It falls perfectly and the stripes are so much fun! There was a basic straw fedora that I also had my eye on, but this one made me crave the beach so I knew it was the epitome of summer!

The husband was pretty amazed that this bag rang up as $2.99. Yep! You can’t beat that. …

Cool off with a Sweet Summer Sangria

STL summers call for heat and humidity. Here Today has all the ingredients to help you cool off with a refreshing and fruity summer sangria!

First, choose your wine preference: red, white or rosé starting at just $2.99. One bottle of wine makes enough sangria for about 8 servings. Pour bottle of wine into a large pitcher.

Then, choose an assortment of frozen fruit options. Strawberries, blueberries, peaches or pineapples – you can’t go wrong. With bags of frozen fruit priced at only 99 cents each you could add them all!  Add the fruit into the pitcher.

Next, add a splash of Seagrams Sparkling Cranberry for a bubbly burst of flavor.  

Allow your sangria to chill in the fridge for as little as an hour or throw a few ice cubes in and enjoy right away! Finally, pour your sangria into one of our painted wine glasses and enjoy the most refreshing summer sangria that your friends and family will be raving about.


For an alcohol free alternative, substitute sparkling golden peach juice. Enjoy in our fashionable tumblers priced at only $1.99!
