It’s the end of 2016 and WOW has this year just flown by. I feel like I say that every year but it does seem like the older we get the faster it goes. I took a little blog break to spend time with my family and enjoy the holiday. The most important gift we can give and receive is the gift of presence.
I recently checked out the new and improved Hungry’s in Rice Village for a Blogger Brunch. I was super excited because Hungry’s has been a favorite spot of mine for years. With the popularity and demand of this restaurant, they have moved into a modern building and expanded upward to create a new space named Upstairs. Upstairs is a unique lounge with a huge gorgeous patio that has an amazing weekend brunch, happy hours, and can be rented for private events.
As I was brunching with some of my fav blogger babes, I was able to enjoy the casual ambience and beauty of the trees from this gorgeous patio. We sampled different cocktails and appetizers but the strawberry mimosa was my absolute favorite. As my entrée, I ordered the chicken and waffles plate and it was a nice combination of sweet and spicy. The spicy syrup really completed the dish and gave it a pleasant little zing.
For this blogger brunch I decided to wear a violet colored dress and accessorize it with tones of gray and silver. The combination was great for this occasion but also a perfect idea for a NYE outfit! As a girly girl, I loved that the clutch had a hand strap detail that was a cute bow. I finished the look with a faux fur scarf and some gray velvet heels. The faux fur detailing is a nice touch for a winter look in the south.
If you haven’t already scheduled your plans for new year’s, there is still time. I would definitely recommend checking out Hungry’s grand opening TOMORROW, New Year’s Eve! And if you still need some fabulous outfit inspiration, the outfit is linked above. Hope you all have a safe and fabulous New Year’s! I will be spending time with family so SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
