I wore this outfit for Easter Brunch at our house. It wasn't really fancy enough for Easter, but it was comfortable & I was cooking. While the GB house brands fit me fine in a 4x, I am usually more comfortable when I size up. I wish the colors in this dress had been brighter, & as always, I wish GB would release their dresses in tall versions, this is entirely too short to be worn without teggings. I thought the pattern was fabulously fun, & of course I liked the orange & green. 
Kate brought sparkling wine to drink & we had gotten some Cava at Costco to make mimosas, because brunch is all about the mimosas. So much food! The girlie bought these chocolate bunnies & 3 peanut butter eggs after farmers' market the day before, & we completely forgot to put them on the table...
We started off with bagels & lox and a lovely braided ginger sweet bread Angie created. I made 2 new egg dishes, Asparagus & 2 Cheese Quiche with Hash Brown Crust & Spinach Quiche. Super Boo made ham on the grill. There was also asparagus & hollandaise and roasted potatoes with garlic & rosemary. 
Kate made fruit salad with ginger lime sauce. And elly & Josh brought an adorable Easter egg cake. 
The cinnamon roll is just a cream cheese frosting vehicle.

  1. Orange and leopard print were made for each other. Those sandals are lovely, too!

    1. Thanks, Leah! Orange & leopard are everything.

  2. Brunch is so underrated. It feels so luxe and ladylike. Your spread looks delicious, especially that asparagus quiche. Omg - yum! I am also a fan of mimosas. And bloody mary's. And those chocolate bunnies are the sweetest! I love fancy parties with friends, especially when everyone brings their own dish to contribute. It makes it so special.

    I like to dress up for holidays too, even if I'm going to be in the kitchen all day. I'd probably do like you did - throw on an easy printed dress (it hides the stains!) and accessorize the heck out of it to step it up a bit! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Brunch is basically my favorite thing ever. And I'm lucky to have friends who are marvelous cooks.
