A mediterranean brunch experience with a bunch of close friends...let me pause my Phuket posts for once :)
It's not really spring here YET but we're getting our share of the warm and sunny weather now. Though some days are cold, last weekend was fantastic, a bit chilly and sunny. My friends & I had been planning this brunch for months now. Due to everyone's hectic schedule, we kept moving it to a "next week" and another "next week" until months passed by. Finally, after days of planning and several other restaurant options, we came up with a perfect place, a mediterranean restaurant called The Fat Olive located at the Sinan Mansions in Shanghai. Sinan Mansions is located in the old French concession area, and is a commercial stretch of redeveloped 1920's & 1930's colonial mansions which housed Shanghai's elite - including the political figures of Sun Yatsen and Zhou Enlai, now turned into a hotel, café's, bars, and restaurants.

I was still feeling a bit cold despite the sunny weather so I wore a wool coat, leather gloves, and a pair of leggings. Just in case the weather changes, I'm also safe.
Since I'm already feeling the spring fever, I opted for a cotton floral frock and paired it with a colorful red pullover, purple gloves, and purple leggings. I knew my husband would ask for a lovely stroll on that fantastic weather so I made sure my shoes were comfy. I was too lazy to do anything to my hair, the bun saved my day :)

Another gastronomic feast...a little bit of everything. The meal was very appetizing, specially with a lovely company.
What do you think of this very colorful combination? I sure do think there's a lot going on in this outfit but somehow the overall look doesn't give me a sore eye, lol!
Expect my next posts to be a continuation of my Phuket trip. I still have tons of photos to flood your blogger buzz, hah!
Happy hump day everyone!
Ciao a tutti!
