{PERSONAL STYLE} CASUAL BRUNCH IN CADY'S ALLEY...


On Monday morning before heading back up to the city, Meghan, her brother Kevin and I went to brunch at Kafe Leopold. It's on a historic little street called Cady's Alley, and the food was stellar. More importantly, the coffee was amazing, and apparently Austrian. We feasted, chit-chatted about Kevin's impending trip to South Africa and before we knew it, it was time to head home, pack up and sit on the Bolt Bus for 5 hours.

My mom handed this bag down to me when I was back in Seattle in November. It is absolutely huge, and expands to get even huge-r. I used it as my "carry on" for the bus down, and took it to brunch so I could bring the DSLR camera. I think if it were a real emergency, I could get all the way inside it and hide from the bad guys.




I love how a bit of glitzy sparkle makes a classic sweater feel just a bit more special.
