So earlier this summer I posted this on Tanglewood Moms: Where are your favorite brunch spots around town? And without fail, “the moms” came through with great selections!
Let me start first with our go-to Sunday brunch place….The Kimbell Café. Typically, this is where we go after church on Sunday. And speaking of a work of art, an embroidered wicker handbag is the ultimate pairing for a lovely museum brunch. Add a white skirt or dress, and checked flats to give your brunch style a vintage vibe! FYI….guess whose white bucket bag went to the Monet exhibit!
When brunching at a cosmopolitan museum, like Café Modern, abstract prints always add a touch of sophistication. You can’t help but feel “modern” in an Anthropologie bold and graphic print skirt. On Pinterest they feature it on two different models, both wearing it with a printed tee. And I have to admit, I just love how my mid-century bamboo bag complements the Modern’s architecture!
For a fun and active brunch, Pinstripes is the place to go! I’m thinking something “striped” for this fun environment. BTW….striped pants paired with bowling and bocce make for a great combo. And just so you know, a pair of striped pants is “right up my alley”! Another fun bowling alley/brunch look is a rainbow striped top worn with white jeans. Sounds like a “strike” to me!
My favorite Monday brunch/lunch place is McKinley’s Bakery! My new style obsession is paper-bag pants, which are so comfy and ideal for my Monday “MOW’s” delivery. I recently purchased a pair of paper-bag khakis at Zara’s 5th Avenue store in New York, which go great with my rattan slides from J McLaughlin. And one more thing…they pair perfectly with a slice of McKinley’s coconut cream pie…yum!
If you had to “press” my husband for his favorite brunch spot that would be Press Café. With its off-the-trail location next to the Farmer’s Market, and Johnny’s Bike Shop…it definitely has a laid-back California feel. Anything bohemian is ideal for this setting….from floral maxis to a flowy kimono worn with jeans. How Cali-cool does that sound?
And one more thing, whoever came up with the idea of “brunching” is a super hero….in my humble, yet accurate opinion! Don’t you agree?
