Thrifty Threads – Ladies Who Brunch

My schedule can be unpredictable but there are two things in life that are {usually} guaranteed on a Sunday: church and brunch. A relaxing brunch is the perfect way to unwind before beginning another work week.

This week I caught up with my friend Johara from Luvin’ My Curves and we decided to hit up Kitchenette in Tribeca. The restaurant’s known for its down home cooking.

I wanted a ladylike frock that was church appropriate but also comfy for the near 90 degree temps, so rocked the little white dress I recently picked up from the Salvation Army.

But first, let’s talk about the food, which was beyond amazing.

{strawberry sangria served in mason jars}

{i realllly enjoyed the sangria *hiccup*}

{johara had the lumberjack special with red velvet pancakes}

{i chowed down on the farmhouse special: eggs, bacon, biscuit, cheese grits and a side of strawberry butter}

{i managed to keep my pretty white dress free of food stains}

{accessories were minimal}

{my babies!}

Breakdown:
Dress: thrifted for $7//Purse: Nine West//Shoes: DSW//Necklace and Bracelet: gifted//Ring: Urban Outfitters

Week 43 of my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge (a full year where I only buy second-hand clothing) is down. Only 9 more weeks to go!

Let me go walk that meal off…
