I wore this outfit to Sunday brunch & on another day to work. I had tried this GB housebrand top during their Chicago event & I was expecting to buy it...however, it had shrunk in the months since it has been released. I had been surprised that the 5x (my normal size in their brand) was way too big on me, but the 4x was a perfect fit when it was new. The colors in this blouse are gorgeous & it was a great match with this Kiyonna Bellini. 
Brunch at Angie & Toby's house. Brunch is my absolute favorite meal. David had the brilliant idea of bringing mandarins to juice for  our mimosas...I thought it was ridiculous at first...who wants to squeeze their juice on the spot? I was so so wrong. It was fun & the mandarins made the mimosas zingier. I made sweet potato hash with bacon & rosemary from our 3 season porch (we brought it inside for the winter)...it was perfect as I'd been craving orange veggies. Look at those adorable little pie plates! They were Angie's grandmas...inside them are 3 different kinds of quiche?...frittata?  yummy eggy-ness. But the highlight of brunch for me were the un-cinnamon rolls Angie made. My face fell when she said they weren't cinnamon rolls...but then it turned out to be even better...cardamom orange rolls!! Delightfully delectable. 
Their foster dog, Val, being naughty...I love naughty dogs...but I did not feed her from the table...not even once. 
My make-up with this outfit included...Urban Decay eyeliner in Junkie, UD eyeshadow in Jilted & Urban, Sephora Jem eyeshadow in Jerrica, Bite Beauty lipstick in Burgundy, & Get Cherried Away nail polish by OPI. 


  1. The food looks delicious and I love the outfit too. The nail polish is great, and I have a fondness for naughty dogs too. :)

    1. Thank you! Naughty dogs are the best ;)
