Sometimes the best outfits are thrown together, as was the case with this one. I was in the mood to wear one of my favorite dresses, but a casual spring afternoon in the city didn’t really call for a strapless number. Why this outfit didn’t dawn on me before – because chambray goes with everything – will forever be a mystery. So often I make clothing purchases that do double duty: office appropriate that can also be suitable for off-the-clock hours. Yet, I think it’s time to expand my closet’s horizons beyond the “business casual” limits I had been imposing. Besides, there must be a reason why there’s “fun” in funky.

Brunch: A Love Story. That might as well be the title to my memoir. Only available in audiobook format, because it’s the best format that ever was, it would open with a rousing, tasty rendition of Madonna’s “Holiday” except it would be about the celebration of hollandaise. I’ve mentioned that little habit of mine when I make a mean eggs Benny, but it’s a truly magical sauce that is deserving of its own song.

This favorite meal of mine is made even more special when shared with some of my favorites, especially when those favorites happen to also digitally document their lives and style. This time the gang – comprised of Lauren, Jennifer, Lauralai and Brandy – did the grub n’ gab at Serpentine in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood.

As for the outfit, you’ll see traces of my J. Crew sale addiction as well as ballet flats. The latter may not be so revolutionary for most, but it is for this habitual heel-wearer. Now that I am traversing hilly city streets more often, let’s see how long that old habit will last.

It’s time to take back those dresses. Yes, those ones that convince you they are only right for a certain time or occasion. Nay, I say!  Grab those dresses, toss a cardi and belt on and you’ve got yourself a cross-seasonal outfit. Bonus points if it’s twirlable. Fun and sweet, this dress and sweater combo channels the sea of twirly swirly gum drops. Or … I love Elf so much that I find a way to quote it in all situations. Not now, arctic puffin!

solid gold style

Lest you think I was kidding about the gold jacket love earlier this week. It was not a passing fad. I want to put one on, grab some heels and a clutch and hit the town. Who’s with me? Let’s dance to some of these songs as we toast to the weekend!
