The Garden Brunch

After a weekend of gorgeous Spring days and walking through the early bloom of the Boston gardens, I am reminded of one of my favorite warm weather traditions, brunch! Bostonians love brunch almost as much as they love beer and it is never a shock to see lines from the city's best restaurants out to the streets on Sundays as groups eagerly await a patio table to enjoy an omelet and a mimosa, or two. Some of the best Boston brunches can be found at Stephanie's on Newbury, The Beehive or Paramount in the South End, Sofra in Cambridge, or Zaftigs in Coolidge Corner.  If you're interested in a traditional Irish or English breakfast, hit up the pubs like Matt Murphy's in Brookline or The Squealing Pig in Mission Hill. For a healthy bagel sandwich and organic iced coffee, there's no place like Bagel Rising in Allston Rock City. 

Of course, like most aspects of my life, when I venture out I venture all-out. So when Sunday brunch comes calling, so does my wardrobe. What do you wear to brunch on a sunny Boston morning? I've always advocated for matching your dress to your drink, I find it's more appealing to city spectators, paparazzi glamour shots, and poetic consonance. I also discovered that nothing matches mid-day juice cocktails quite like a floral sundress. It's classy, it's cute, and the bright colors will inevitably hide any puffy eyes leftover from Saturday evening's engagements.
