Brunch So Hard









TOP: Luxe Tees c/o // DENIM: American Eagle (sold out, similar here & here) // SHOES: The Wonder Shop (vintage, similar option) // EARRINGS: Kate Spade // LIPSTICK: Kat Von D 'Bachelorette' // BRACELETS: Bourbon & Boweties

Hey y'all!
If you love brunch, raise your hand! {insert emoji here} I personally love a good mimosa and some yummy waffles to go along with it! Hey! Every girl needs a cheat day, right? When I saw this top from Luxe Tees, I knew it had to be mine! This outfit would be perfect for. well, brunch of course! But you could also wear this for just about anything! My top was a custom order... and I'm sure she would do the same for you if you wanted one just like I'm wearing!

Any brunch with the girls is going to include some good stories and gossip! It wouldn't be brunch without it right? Flashback to listening in on Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte dish out all of their stories. If you don't know who I'm talking about... then we can't be friends. 

Let's brunch!
I'm going to dish on where these gorgeous shoes came from and who else has worn them. Let's also take a walk down memory lane to One Tree Hill. Oh, you remember... Chad Michael Murray, Sophia Bush, James Lafferty, Hilary Burton, Bethany Joy Lenz... AKA Lucas, Brooke, Nathan, Haley, and Peyton. I know they were always my breakaway from reality when I was a teenager. If you've never watched it... hop over to Netflix and binge watch now. You won't regret it!

Long story short, ;), these babes were worn by Sophia Bush in an episode towards the end of the series. My mother and I were in Wilmington, NC (where the show was filmed) and we went into this really neat vintage store named 'The Wonder Shop'. As we were perusing around, a sales gal came up to check on us. She asked why we were in town and I explained we were touring filming locations. (It was a gift from my mom for my birthday) The show had just wrapped and they had a big auction with items that had been used on the show. Anywho, the sales woman gets all bright-eyed and says... "Girl, you'll want to see what I have." She takes me over to these babes sitting on a shelf. She explained that they purchased them from the auction and they were just waiting for the right gal. Believe it or not, they were my exact size! My mom immediately purchased them and $45 later... I was walking around in Brooke Davis' shoes. 

To some this might seem like a silly little story but to a girl who connected with this show so much in her teen years... it was a dream come true. Back to brunching... So when you go out for brunch, make sure you've got a fun story to share or have your ears open for some juicy stories your friends may have! Oh, and don't forget to say "yes please" to more mimosas! ;)

Thanks for reading!
