Three more days, guys. Three! Am I ready for Christmas? Absolutely not. I still have a little odds and ends to pick up. Most of my major shopping is done, now I just want to sweeten the deal with a few stocking stuffer surprises. I think I enjoy opening my stocking the most on Christmas morning. My mom is always awesome at putting the cutest little unexpected gifts in my stocking. These are some little surprises that I would love to open up on christmas morning!
I think that one of the reasons why me and Lisa are such good friends is that we both love food and always want to try new restaurants. Seriously, we’re trying something new every other week! This past Sunday, we snuck in a super late brunch at Eat The Rich. I’m a Maryland native so naturally, I’m obsessed with any type of seafood. I was in heaven with all of the seafood-type brunch dishes (also, hello: any place where I can get an oyster shooter along with my mimosa is a win in my book!)
The menu is limited and changes on a seasonal basis, but there are options for everyone. For appetizers, we split their hash with an egg on top (if you get this dish, make sure to mix it all up) and the hush puppies. We also split our entree. This dish wasn’t your traditional scrambled eggs — it was a seafood scramble. This is a refreshing and unexpected change from the typical egg dishes I order at other spots around town.
I definitely plan on going back to Eat The Rich. And maybe bringing all of my friends who drooled over my Instagram with me. They also have a late night oyster happy hour ($1 oysters!) after 9:30pm, so the next trip back will be after hours.
What to wear: Eat the Rich’s brunch is super laid back, so I would dress down a bit. The day we went was one of those glorious 60 degree days in December, so I opted for a sleek leather jacket instead of my heavy winter coat. Wear flat shoes so you can explore the neighborhood of Shaw after brucnhing!
Phew, guys: I’ve posted a slew of holiday looks these past few weeks! It’s been an amazing experience participating in Style Scenario this season with some of my favorite bloggers and getting a rush of holiday style inspiration. I figured I would round up some of these looks in one post just in case you missed any of the action!
A common theme this year for styling has been to try to purchase pieces that can be worn outside of the holidays. An ugly Christmas sweater is great and all, but because of my entry-level budget, I’d rather spend money on something I can wear throughout the rest of winter. Aren’t we all tired of those pieces in our closets that we only wore once? I plan on layering sweaters over the sequin and fringe dresses to dress them down a bit for a night out on the town.
Happy holidays everyone! What do you plan on wearing this season?
