Feline flapper style

Also during the break, Sam and I treated ourselves to a Portland-style brunch at Irving Street Kitchen. Verdict? Fantastic food — I enjoyed my first-ever chicken and waffles! — and some of the *best* doughnuts I’ve ever had. Highly recommended! And best of all, we were seated by the bookshelves, or what I called (of course), “the library section.” Sweeeeeet.

Sam and I took advantage of a fun, graphic backdrop just past the restaurant, the outside of which you can spy in the background of the photos. It was hard to narrow down the photos — the lighting was perfect — so this is a photo-heavy post. Also, there were sooooooo many outtakes that I could have done an entire post just of the outtakes! (I’ve embedded a few outtakes in this post, just for fun. You’re welcome. 😉 )

And yes, another day, another outfit featuring my cognac riding boots! You might also recognize the pattern of this skirt … or rather, dress … because that’s my cat-print dress that I layered my purple sweater over. Such a comfortable, warm outfit on a windy winter day. The longer length of the sweater brings out a drop-waisted, 1920s silhouette to the outfit, making the bottom of the dress into a flippy skirt. And, of course, the cloche helps bring out the flapper style.

And, last but not least, a few more shots with my new houndstooth-patterned overcoat. Love the bell shape of this coat!

    Mmm, that restaurant sounds amazing! Chicken and waffles is a thing in Chicago, too, but I’ve actually never had it. Might be something I need to do in 2014. Also, we have a neighborhood about mile from me that looks a lot like your backdrop. I’m thinking I need to take some outfit photos there when it’s not 4 degrees and covered in snow 🙂

    Such a cute outfit! I like the pattern on your skirt. That coat and hat are all kinds of perfect. Hope you don’t mind, I’d like to pin this for future reference — the color and pattern play are fun.
