We did it, we made it to Friday! I don’t know about you, but in the summer my favorite way to spend my nights and weekends are on a rooftop. Luckily, in Birmingham a brand new rooftop bar just opened up at the Elyton Hotel called Moon Shine. It has a view that is to die for, plus they have a $9 glass of rosé that is filled to the rim (so you know I’m in). The Elyton is a recently renovated hotel from 1909, and it is breathtakingly beautiful! The hotel has gargoyles around the roof and marble from floor to ceiling in the lobby. In addition to the rooftop bar, there is also a new restaurant downstairs called The Yard. Birmingham, Alabama may not be the biggest city in the country, but we still have some pretty great views, and this is the best place to be to see it.
The best way to beat the heat down south in the summer is to find somewhere with a good breeze. There is no better way to do that than with a rooftop and a glass of ice cold rosé. I have always been a lover of wine, but I have just recently discovered my love for rosé. So you already know I have been drinking it on repeat.
For clothes, the best way to stay cool is with anything low cut and backless (back-sweat is my own worst enemy). This denim dress is a summer favorite and I have been wearing it on repeat. Denim is usually a very hot material, but the low cut in the front in back help you stay cool on a hot summer day. Unfortunately, this dress has sold out but I have linked similar denim dresses below. This is a great dress to transition from day-to-night, making it perfect to wear to happy hour!
