Sunday Funday!

The hubs and I don’t always get weekends off together, but we recently had a Sunday to ourselves and took full advantage of the situation. This means that we slept in late, stuffed ourselves with brunch and went to a movie matinee. Sooooo pretty much my perfect day!

There is almost nothing I love more than a good brunch on the weekends. I mean, at no other time is it appropriate to accompany Mac and Cheese with Biscuits and Gravy (my fav combo), plus a refreshing mimosa AND hot cup of tea, and don’t forget pastries! Brunch is where I hope to go when I die… So I’m sure you can imagine my delight when John agreed to hit up our favorite brunch spot on a rare Sunday off. I threw on this little number and coerced him to take my pictures, post brunch, in the sculpture garden downtown.

I’m obsessed with this top I recently got from American Apparel. The colors are super eye-catching and I love a good geometric print. The fabric is really stretchy and it’s a warm little crop top for winter! I’ve been pairing it with everything that I can, from high-waisted skirts to this mint, peter-pan collared dress. I’ve been so into crop tops recently and they transition nicely from summer to fall to winter when topped off over a dress.

We took these pictures right before it got to be unbearably cold and I was able to be jacket-less for what will probably be the last time in months. So many tears…

We kept the rest of the day very chill and saw the movie Nightcrawler (anyone seen it?) It was fantastic, especially if you love to see Mr. Gyllenhaal do his thing, and who doesn’t love that?
