My luck for favorable weather held up by the time I made it to Dallas.
It was warm without being uncomfortable and made the perfect ambiance for our belated Mother’s Day and early Father’s Day brunch at the Four Seasons:
Sure, we were all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed here before the first round…
My dapper dad really enjoyed the succulent crab claws (which made up his second and third rounds)…
I confess I also went back for the claws, but it was the banana pancake that did me in (ahem, twice or thrice)…
And by the fourth or fifth round, I was thanking my lucky stars that I had on a dress with stretch in the fabric! I think the rule is to eat till you are about a 7 and not a 10, but who can stop with temptations like these at the dessert bar?
I believe this next photo was of my fifth plate. Isn’t chocolate like its own food group or something?
Definitely not bright-eyed and bushy-tailed anymore after all this food. We all needed a nap at this point but already talked about coming back here for Father’s Day!
Anyway, what was the outfit of the day? A floral cotton dress from Zara (a recent discovery and obsession of mine) and the Hermes Jypsiere messenger bag, which I love but do not find versatile enough to transition from going to work to going out:
