My favorite meal of the day is breakfast, which is sometimes defined as brunch because I sit so long with the ones I love, and our conversations and laughter bleed into lunch. I am a creature of habit ordering an egg white omelet with bacon and cheese and a side of avocado and while I do adore an omelet, what I love best about the meal is the people I share it with. It has become a ritual that allows me to sit with friends and sweep away all my worries, talk about what is going on in the world without any judgment, and laugh about the absurd things in life. Most of all, it fills me with a promise about the future. It’s a breakfast family that sometimes includes someone new, like an out-of-town guest or a new friend. Sometimes it is two of us or four or five of us, but it is always filled with love, wit, humor, whatever the number. It doesn’t matter how you show up looking. Sometimes it’s jean shorts and a tee and no makeup, other days a flirty dress or an Erica skirt and sweatshirt, whatever mood you are in, brunch is happy to have you, especially Sunday Brunch. It’s a unique time that is about being together, escaping the world that occurred the week before, and relishing the anticipation of the dreams that might come true in the week to come.

On Sundays after an early brunch, I always take a walk on the Katy Trail. There is usually a new set of people flooding into the sidewalk cafes I walk by named Toulouse and Up on Knox. I always smile to myself as I see tables of friends having so much fun or couples holding hands, or families in conversations filled with excitement. And the brunch dogs on the patio are my favorite. It’s joy in action- a mini-celebration of life. There is a multigenerational bonding that happens, and with this bonding comes faith in humanity and a whole lotta love. 

These brunch moments help us believe in others and allow others to give us a unique strength to tear down walls of fear or insecurity so we can see our dreams more clearly. So this week, have breakfast or brunch with the people you love, people who see your potential when you are blinded by it! Laugh and remember sometimes brunch is all we need to start Monday off, creating miraculous things that fulfill our promise. 

In honor of brunch, we are so excited to be releasing our Parisian Brunch Collection on Tuesday, July 27th at 12 PM CST! The collection has a whipped cream Erica Skirt with a matching Pixie Top, an amazing Mint Pearl Layla Top with a matching Erica Skirt, a Saturday Stripe Ivy Skirt and Phoebe Top, along with so much more! 

Don’t forget to check out our Cowgirl Collection before it’s sold out this week! It’s so hard to pick my favorites, I took almost every item for my own personal closet. One outfit I can’t stop wearing is the Nicole skirt and the Layla top.  

Don’t forget to tune into our Tik Tok Live tomorrow (Wednesday night) at 8:00 PM CST. We will be debuting the Parisian Brunch collection for a sneak peek and giving away three items: an Erica Skirt, Cece Top and Ivy Skirt!
