Brunch Downtown

 
Dress: thrifted   Bag & Sandals: Target

Watch: c/o Style Girl   Necklace: Our World Boutique
 

 
Last week, Kirsten and I had a free morning and afternoon to go downtown and hang out. It's been the first time in what feels like a long time since our schedules have cooperated like that, and despite living together now, we still rarely see each other!

So we did a brunch date downtown and ended up walking all up and down the charming streets, popping into stores that we often neglect. There's one shop that sells vintage, quirky pieces, and I found a beautiful creamy maxi skirt on the sale rack. I'm already imagining multiple ways to wear it. I'm certain you'll be seeing it on here eventually!

There's nothing better than being able to spend time with someone, have conversations ranging from the deep to the shallow, and all over a cup of coffee and some good food. I look forward to having more time to do such things over the summer.

Bahahahaha! YES! It is SO hard to get jumping shots. I barely try anymore, so props to you for actually getting some in. ;) Isn't it just so nice to be able to have a few friends who are so close and you can talk to anything about? Whether it be something completely "weird" or deep and fascinating, just like you said. And over coffee and tea, nonetheless. Aaaah Linda, whenever I read your posts I just know we'd be peas in a pod in real life!

That dress is so absolutely cute! I love that pattern for summer, and all your shopping adventure pictures are so fun!

Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend my spiky little dragon fruit!! <33333333333

aw I agree about getting together. I also LOVE brunches. haha. Well, any time of day involving food is my favorite. If you heard how many times we talk about food at my job, it'd be a wonder how we get work done. haha (jk)

Love the thrifted dress. So playful and fun for summer!

Such a bright and happy dress and I love the way you've "matched" the sandals. You're right, it's great to get some time with friends and just lately time is not something I have had a lot of, although I must admit that, even with a lightning trip to Italy, this week I had Thursday and Friday off so I was able to relax a little.
Have a lovely weekend Linda

I love being with friends and doing something simple but having meaningful and fun conversations. Sometimes that tops doing something more active.

You look lovely here, the colours in your dress really suit you and are so apt for summer.
