Vetements du Jour: Grandparent Brunch

Today's outfit is pretty casual - my Grandparents came over for brunch, and my mom went all out (I probably should have taken pictures of the setup, but it slipped my mind...) My mom got out her good china and made mimosas... so delicious.

The picture's a little dark because of the lighting, but you get the idea. These are my absolute FAVORITE pants (yes, pants - not leggings!) They're a few years old and are starting to fade & get holes, which I am patching up religiously. I want these to last as long as possible. They're the only pants I've ever found like this - mostly spandex but with about 25% denim, they button & zip like jeans and have back pockets and fake front pockets, but they fit like leggings. Amazing. Pretty soon I'm going to get some RIT and see if I can re-dye them their original black...

Sweater Detail - purchased at Anthropologie a few years ago, I never really wore it much until I lived in Italy last summer. It's the perfect thing to pair with summer dresses, especially at night when it gets a little chilly. Plus I can't get enough of the appliqued flowers...

No wardrobe is complete without a pair of red pumps... Bonus points if they're peep-toe & patent leather...

A new twist on chandelier earrings. These reminded me of Monet's waterlilies, plus they're handmade by a local artist. I can't beat that.
