Brunch @ Alforno’s

Today I went to Brunch with my cousin. My go to place for brunch has always been EEB but wanted to eat something else than the usual today. I have has Alforno’s brunch before (the exact same thing as this picture). It is reasonably priced and tasted good. If I wanted to be picky I would point out the following. The toast was a little too burnt for my liking as it was a bit hard. The fruit preserve they gave tasted just like boiled strawberries with some sugar. Did not particularly like the texture of it either. Also the service at Alforno’s is always slow and not the most efficient but the decor is a cute place However I would come back again as I like the bacon they had and the desserts they have are always delicious.

Summer Days and Lemons at Brunch

June 25, 2017

Today was Sunday brunch. I decided to wear this cute lemon printed off the shoulder top with a pair of denim shorts. I never wore off the shoulder tops because it was also so hard to find a bra that worked and wasn’t uncomfortable. I picked up a strapless bra from Aerie and it works decent enough that I have started buying more off the shoulder tops. Something about them is flirty and cute without trying too hard.

Blue Shirtdress

June 20, 2017

When I bought this dress, I thought it was a dress but I think it is a tunic. As someone quite short I was able to get away with it a dress. If you were taller than 5’3 or have longer legs than me it might not work for you as a dress. It is slightly short tho for the office, a little risque but it was a warm day. I had very differing opinions of this dress. Some people really liked it and some people didn’t like it. I got some comments saying it looked like a hospital gown, others thought I was wearing a men’s dress shirt (both in a good way and bad way) I loved the cuffed sleeves of this dress and the curved hem. However I can understand how its not everyone’s cup of tea. The fabric was a bit sheer so I wore a slip underneath it but overall a very comfy dress!

Lot 102 – Patio Food

My family and I decided to try a new place in Kensington for a late lunch. Lot 102 serves a variety of foods. We got the Avocado toast and the tacos (chicken and fish). The place was not that busy for the time that we went (2PM), service was a little slow. Nothing stuck out as being overly unique. I did enjoy the strawberry lemonade (not photographed), it was freshly made and was only $3! My cousin enjoyed the avocado toast and said the salad was tasty as well. I had the tacos. I was expecting smaller tacos but was pleasantly surprised when they quite hardy. One complaint is that they were kinda soggy and mushy. Overall not a bad place, but not my first choice.
