Daily Wear: Yeah, I'd Date Myself...

Last weekend when Alex was visiting, I managed to remember my camera come Sunday morning for a lovely drunk brunch at Lovin' Cup.
Thankfully I remembered...how else could I have been so self obsessed to take photos of myself in the mirror?  duh!
Drunk Brunch-reflection
As per my usual breakfast preference, I chose an egg-y treat.  The Sweet Jane Scramble to be exact.
And those are indeed TOTS on the plate...tots and a side of bacon, god I could go for that right now!
My Breakfast
After brunch we headed to McCarren Park for some R&R and to-go margaritas of course.  It's a novelty to the out-of-towners, and I thought it was a MUST that they partake in the fun of drinks in a public outdoor setting--the lid keeps it safe, totally NOT an open container, right?
To go Margarita in McCarren Park
Then of course, it was time for more pictures of ME.....did I ever tell you I would date myself?  Yeah this is my motto these days, and i'm stickin' to it. 
I mean who wouldn't want to date themselves if they acted as classy as I do?  Everyone loves a girl re-enacting a moment of wetting herself, no?

Or one that throws all "ladylike behavior" out the window...
(un)ladylike conduct
But really...lets talk outfit gibberish.

I love this dress, I always want to wear it, i usually forget to wear it, but alas....brunch was the perfect moment for it, and I not only remembered my camera, I remembered to wear the dress.  It's a wee bit short, and the sleeves are too short as is usually the case with most sleeved vintage I buy.  A quick roll of the sleeves solves that and makes it all the more cool and comfy in the hot summer sun anyhow.
Brunch
No worries about the shortness of the whole thing...why that's where my trusty cut-offs come in handy.  Throw my fave summertime staple under the dress and I can be as unlady-like as I damn well please!
Problem solved!!!!!!!  And now I must go date myself...
