Just another brunch date

A  spontaneous shoot on our way to brunch; this brick building at The Stanford Barn is just too pretty!

A spontaneous shoot to work up the appetite

When I started this blog and began to find my stride in posting outfits, I knew from the beginning I wanted to keep it quintessential “me“.  I wanted it to simply represent my daily style; I didn’t want anything fancy.  But once you get pulled into this world, it’s hard to resist what I call the monkey see monkey do syndrome – as human beings we’re influenced and inspired by one another, it’s just a part of life.  Browsing through all the gorgeous style blogs daily made me want to deviate from my original intent with the style and outfits I publish; I started to do more – make up, fancy shoes, putting looks together I would only wear for a shoot and never for a real outing.  In a way it elevated how I approached my closet every morning but at the same time I’m just not a high maintenance dresser.

So as I headed to Tootsies at the Stanford Barn which is this beautiful historic red brick building with my beau this past Saturday, I just happened to have the camera in the car and decided to do a lightening quick shoot.  No fuss, no planning, not even a statement necklace.  Just a simple daily look.

Tee – Aritzia (similar) // Skirt – Asos (similar) // Sandals – Cole Hann // Backpack – Rebecca Minkoff // Jewelry – TYPENU Co

I love wearing a longer length top and pairing it with a maxi skirt; it oddly works for even vertically challenged people like me.  With the right proportions it can actually make you taller and leaner, even with flats!  This all jersey look is so easy to throw together, and best of all, super economical!

Tootsies is freaking delicious; it’s a very homey setting that has a lot of large tables for people to share and more seating outside than inside.  I always go for the ricotta pancakes and my beau gets one of their panini sandwiches.  I wish I had more snaps; by the time we finished eating the place got super busy and there were people everywhere.  All in all, a great weekend!
