Brunch Your Heart Out

Brace yourself, Minneapolis. This pretty dress from Ruche might just turn the husband and I into people who brunch. I’m thinking that this pattern would go perfectly with a powdered-sugar waffle and a white peach mimosa. But Darrin and I have never really been the kind of people who brunch. Don’t get me wrong. We’ve brunched before. On numerous occasions. There were omelets paired with pasta paired with bacon paired with cheesecake. Coffee was poured. Mimosas were sipped. And we dreamed of more magical brunches in our future. But our schedules just don’t allow for us to brunch like the best of them. We finished our meal, took a few more sips from our coffee mugs, and then realized that we had a ton of crap to do that Saturday, so we grabbed two large handfuls a few slices of bacon to-go from the buffet table, paid our bill, and traded our brunch for reality. It was sad and disheartening. Like leaving Magic Kingdom and realizing that the real world doesn’t have a Disney soundtrack constantly playing in the background.

But maybe, with the help of this cute dress and a lighter summer schedule, the husband and I will brunch our hearts out this summer. Bring on the strange meal combinations and excuses to drink champagne in the morning! I’m choosing to live in a world where brunch IS reality!

I’d give this Becky bucket bag 5 thumbs up if I could, but that’s physically impossible, so we’ll all just have to settle for imagining 5 thumbs up emojis. 😉

    I hear ya! My husband and I always have intentions of brunching more, but it is hard to fit in! It ends up sucking the day away and our weekends are just too busy. Maybe it’s a sign we should slow down more! This seriously is the perfect brunch look, though! It’s also a great look for summer picnics. Your hair is gorgeous, too!

    Let’s discuss something real quick here…why is your hair so perfect, always? As someone who has about 1/3 of the hair you do, I am jealous and not ashamed to admit it! Also, love me some brunch.
