Matthew and I (and ZZ) had the most fabulous brunch on Sunday at Beretta.  The Pamplemousse cocktail was incredible! It had gin, lemon, grapefruit, basil and elderflower. Yum! I can't wait to go back to try one of their pizzas and have another rhubarb crumb cake with vanilla gelato. Have I made you hungry yet? After our delightful morning we spent the afternoon in the park, enjoying the sunshine and the beauty of nature. 

This floral maxi dress is so easy to just throw on and go about your day in total chic comfort. And I thought my purple ring was just perfect with the colors of the dress. I didn't neet to carry much on our walk so I brought along my small woven bag with wooden handles. Most of the time I didn't even need the cardigan, but I hate to be cold so I kept it with me anyway. All in all it was a lovely day and I just hope that this weather lasts for a while.

You made me drool a little describing brunch. It wasn't a pretty sight.

Your dress is fab! I've never been a maxi fan, but you might be changing my mind.


Megan Hattie :

Oh I loooove Camera Obscura, seeing them at Sasquatch last year after so many years of fandom was a dream! Your ring is amazing, and a pamplemoose cocktail sounds delicious... too bad if I went there now they wouldn't serve me. ONE MORE YEAR!

The Thriftaholic (Leilani) :

You're definitely rocking that maxi dress! Lovely setting (the trees look so large!) and my mom had a bag just like yours back in the '70s. Amazing ring too, I've been picking up a lot of natural stone jewelry lately.

I love going out to brunch. :) Your maxi dress here seems like the perfect thing for that, and for just about anything. It looks very versatile. :)

Lucky you for having lovely weather! It's just going up and down where I am...haha.

Such a pretty, pretty dress. I love seeing how it moves with the wind. I never realized this until I actually wore one, but midi/maxi lengths are actually really liberating and carefree. Such a lovely outfit :)
