Hi guys!  I know it’s been awhile but I promise I didn’t forget about you all.  This past weekend and week really was spent celebrating Jeff’s birthday so I was busy putting together quite a few surprises!  But I wanted to share this post with you!  I know you’re all always asking me about Brunch Spots in Orlando because obvs Jeff and I are major brunchers.  So this past Sunday I took Jeff to the Stubborn Mule for his birthday brunch!


I ordered The Coachmen (veggie potato hash with cheese fondue) and added Maple Bacon and a side of Smoked Gouda Grits (ah-mazing!) and Jeff ordered the Cloud Nine which was Pastrami, Breakfast Potatoes and more between an Asiago Bagel (huge and delicious) We sat outside on the beautiful sunny morning and indulged in bottomless mimosas.  There was live music and we were just off Lake Eola, if you’re in Orlando I definitely suggest the Stubborn Mule for Brunch and Happy Hour!

Some of you commented on my instagram asking about my outfit worn that day!  I love this mini cotton dress (similar here) (it’s the dress I wore the day I purchased my wedding gown!) I wore one of my favorite denim jackets (from old navy) thrown over my shoulders and the most perfect Sam Edelman sandals.  I grabbed my Henri Bendel Mini Carryall (no longer available via the brand)that Jeff bought for me the day he proposed and threw my Maison Coco NY flower strap on it! Super cute and casual – perfect for brunch!

Anywhoo, tonight after work I’m going to my Henri Bendel store for a little Bendel Girl’s Night Out!  There will be snacks and of course champs!  They’ll be revealing the new collection and allowing us to shop it with a little discount in the air!  Gotta love those events.  I’ve got my eye on a few pieces in this new Retro collection because about a week ago I got a sneak peak AND the collection officially dropped online yesterday!  Between the Binocular Bag, the Mini Suede Bag and the Tilda (from the last collection) I am sold and the Binocular Bag is definitely in the running! I’ll be back later this week with a little bag reveal and review!

I’m currently 28 years old and I live in Orlando, FL with my husband Jeff + our fur baby Bleu (like the cheese), a Blue Nose Pitbull who you can follow on Instagram at @greeneyedbleu.

I definitely love the colors pink, orange and yellow and all things style but I also love: a great cocktail, home decor, fresh flowers, and spending time with my family (hey mom!).
