I think of Sunday brunch as the Marmite of meals. You either love it or you hate it. You either get it or you don’t. Personally I love brunch. I love that you can eat at a time when you normally wouldn’t (perfect for someone like me who IS NOT a morning person). I love that you can take your pick from a menu that reads like the best of both breakfast and lunch (Coconut pancakes with fresh ricotta, mango salad and ginger-lime syrup, anyone?) I love that you can enjoy a cocktail (or two…haven’t we all just had “one more”?) and it’s perfectly acceptable, even encouraged.

So, for a meal so fantastic, a girl’s got to get a little dressed up, right?! This Sunday, I’m particularly happy to head out because on Thursday I got this vintage faux fur cape in the mail from fellow Etsy shop, Vulture Vintage, and I couldn’t wait to christen it. What a perfect time then brunch, the in between of meals (in between breakfast and lunch) to wear the in between of fashion (in between uptown chic and downtown casual). You just can’t go wrong with a t-shirt and jeans, but topping it off with some rhinestones and faux fur is the bit of unexpected to the expected.

Well, I’m off…already imagining those pancakes and starting to salivate!

I’m interested in knowing what your thoughts are on brunch and if you get all dressed up too! Let me know in the comments section below.

Hope everyone has a fun and relaxing Sunday!
