Sunday Brunch // Lady in the Denim Dress

This Season's Gold // Sunday Brunch - Anthropologie Denim Dress

Happy Saturday! And while it’s not Sunday quite yet, I wanted to share details about a wonderful Sunday Brunch I attended last week with some lovely ladies at the Conrad Hotel in New York City. I am also sharing a VERY exciting opportunity for one lucky mom to meet me at The Chester in New York City! Be sure to stay to the end, and enter to win!

While I have been writing for a little over a year now, it has been so nice to become part of a community of women (and men!) who have been supportive  and like-minded when it comes to fashion and giving back to others. I met Martha from MdollNYC and Sabrina from Stylophyle last year at my first New York Fashion Week show through a mutual friend! They were fabulous, kind and very much the type of women I knew would be great spirits to connect with. Throughout this past year, we have met at several other fashion events, and last week Martha kindly invited me to celebrate the start of her birthday celebrations at a Sunday brunch at the Conrad Hotel with Sabrina and another wonderfully talented and stylish writer Alexa, from Lex Loves Couture.

This Season's Gold // Sunday Brunch - Lady in the Denim DressThe minute you walk into the hotel, you can tell that it prides itself on celebrating architecture in large scale, which makes you feel like you’ve walked into some place quite special. The grand staircase and hanging artwork all around you defines the luxury you definitely experience upon entering.

We had our brunch hosted at ATRIO for their new Jazz Sunday Brunch, where you can enjoy live jazz music during your dining experience.

This Season's Gold // Sunday Brunch - Prosecco and Popsicles

We started with a delightful prosecco and popsicle drink that Martha magically had appear from their amazing rooftop bar Loopy Doopy (a must visit for some amazing views of the Hudson and the Statue of Liberty under a lovely canopy overlooking the city).

Brunch was amazing, and so was the company! Not only did the food look good, but it was delicious and the music was great. I had such a lovely time! Thank you Martha for the invitation!

    Gorgous denim dress! I love that you can twirl it and that it has a deep V back!

    Hi there,

    I found your blog after one of my friends shared it with me on Facebook and wanted to run a few things by you. I’m working on a wedding/event venue project and I think it’s something you could definitely relate to. Let me know if you have a moment to discuss.

    After 4 years of trying, I finally became a mom 6 weeks ago. People ask me what do I love most about being a mom- I actually think it’s I finally understand the depth of love my own mother – and hopefully, each of our mothers – had and has for their children. I stare in wonder at my daughter all day, and I know her whole life I will feel that love and amazement. It is a gift to know that depth of love.

    I love being a mom because it has taught me GREAT responsibility. Not only am I responsible for my daughter’s life, but I’m responsible for who she will become. I am responsible for her impact, the mark she will leave on the world. I take that responsibility very seriously. When I look at her, I not only think about how intelligent, beautiful and kind I want her to be, but what contributions she will make to this world. I can’t wait to be a witness to her greatness. These reasons, and SOOOO many more, make me LOVE being a mom! :)

    I have three kids that mean the world to me because they are always there for me whether good or bad and they lift me up when I am down and push me to keep striving for my goals and always make me laugh and for this I love being a mom

    Being a mom is sacred to me. I am entrusted with shaping and molding my daughters and I am blessed to pour into their spirits the wisdom that was given to me by my mother and grandmother. It also has made me a better person by teaching me patience, renewing my ability to find joy in simple things, and the power of laughter. It’s not an easy job but by far it is the most rewarding.

    Even on the toughest of days, I love being a mom to my two sons. Motherhood has taught me selflessness, resilience, and is the best gift I have ever been given. I am a better person and woman because of my sons. Watching my sons grow has been an incredible experience….I never take it for granted and I savor every moment—it is going by too quickly!

    Thank you for the opportunity!!! It sounds amazing!!!! I love being a mom because my daughter is a testament to the strength that I’ve always needed in life. It’s a challenge and a privilege to be able to see that, nurture it and set it free so that she can go and take on the world.

    • Jess
      April 25, 2016 / 8:28 pm

      Cayte, I love that you say it’s both a privilege and a challenge. I feel that too, and appreciate your truth. xoxo, Jessica

    I love being a mom because it makes me feel like I have a purpose now. Having twins have taught me so much about myself, my marriage and life in general. It’s not the easiest thing I have ever done but it is the best.

      April 25, 2016 / 8:29 pm

      You are so right Sue! Purpose in life means everything to being happy, and I love that you are making it through your tough days knowing you are loved in all ways and double! :-) xoxo, Jessica

    I love being a mom because it’s taught me things I never knew about myself. It’s loving another more than yourself and living life a little brighter and bolder to set an example for that little person…

      Lillie, Isn’t it funny how being a Mom makes us learn more about ourselves? I completely agree! xoxo, Jessica
