To Brunch, To Brunch



Jeans c/o Raven Denim, shoes c/o Converse, bag c/o Roots, scarf c/o Little Burgundy,
coat c/o Aritzia, H&M sweater, bracelets c/o Keltie Leanne & Brooklyn Designs

Though my brunches are a bit lacking this month (Whole30 negates a few of my favourite brunch staples, like muffins, croissants, bread, etc.), that doesn't mean I still don't take advantage of my favourite weekly ritual. It's very rare for me to miss my beloved Sunday brunch - almost without fail, at about 11 a.m. I'll be tucking into a huge plate of food at one of my favourite spots in the city. Of course, in order to do brunch properly, you need to be dressed comfortably...in terms of sheer volume, my brunches are like little Thanksgiving dinners, so comfort is definitely key.

I wore this casual (right down to the footwear) look this past weekend when Matt and I cruised Granville Island, grabbed some coffee and (you guessed it) did brunch. If I'm truly schlumping around, I try to pay some attention to either colour, print or texture to still add visual interest to a casual look - some tonal shades of burgundy coupled with stripes here hopefully livens up what could otherwise teeter into too-casual territory!

Thanks so much for all your kind words yesterday - you majorly cheered me up and helped me stick to my attitude "expiration date"! Happy Tuesday!

  5. I remember commenting about this scarf before, but there is something about it that is so striking and so perfect on you! Which is kind of funny to say about a scarf, but it just pops! I love it!

  7. I'm late but Happy Birthday! Haha! I love your style! You take such care when assembling your looks. Makes me feel bad for often just tossing stuff on. It probably shows. I just cannot focus like that. I can focus and write a 15+ page paper in 1 hour and receive an A on it or read a 200 page book in 1 hour. But I cannot focus on my style too much. I try to buy nice things that will work together so I can just toss it on and go.
    I miss brunches with my friends! We would go every Sunday when we were in University! Awww I miss that so badly!

  16. What a great example of casual chic for a Vancouver brunch.

    I too had brunch at Granville Island this weekend. It was a perfect little outing and surprisingly not too crowded for a Sunday. It would have been fun to have crossed paths with you. Hopefully, another time.
