Blogger Brunch

On Sunday mornings you can almost always find me at brunch somewhere in Chicago. Brunch is by far my favorite meal and favorite activity of the week! (Especially when it’s a boozy brunch with a mimosa or a bloody mary… mmm!) This past Sunday I went to brunch at Bistrot Margot in Old Town with Hallie (from Corals & Cognacs) and Lauren (from The Girls of Lincoln Park). I never want to pick favorites, but these two might just be my blogging besties. We sat down around 11 am and the next thing you know our watches read 1:45 pm. Yes, we had a 2.5 hour brunch. Our apologies to our waiter!

Blazer: Silence & Noise // Striped Tee: Madewell (old) (similar current style) // Jeans: Citizens of Humanity // Leopard Flats: Ivanka Trump // Army Green Anorak: Gap (I removed the fur collar and lining for the Spring. Such a versatile jacket!) (similar style on sale) // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Elephant Necklace: Bauble Bar (similar style) // Leopard Bangle (right wrist): Sequin (on sale at Piperlime!) // Studded Leather Wrap: DJ by Dannijo (similar style at Charm & Chain) // Watch: Michael Kors (similar MK style) // Animal Print Bangle (left wrist): Bauble Bar // Gold Link Bracelet: Kristin Hassan c/o // Gold Buckle Bangle: H&M (similar style) // Nails: Essie ‘Sure Shot’

Just a tad bit windy…

ps — I’m a bad blogger and forgot to get a picture with the two of them! Oops.

    Yay for blogging besties! Seriously one of the best parts about blogging, I think! And I totally know what you mean about pictures – I get so caught up in the moment sometimes & forget to actually stop & snap photos 🙁

      It always happens to me when I’m at restaurants! I feel like I should be taking pictures of meals, but I remember when I’m halfway through.

    Are your Wayfarers the normal ones or the XL? I’m thinking about getting a pair, but only if they’re the oversized ones!
