Since January is usually a birthday month in my books😉, I always tend to forget that it’s also a very special month for one of the top fashion icons – Minnie Mouse! Throughout the month of January, Disney fans everywhere are encouraged to #RockTheDots to show off their own #MinnieStyle and Disney Style.
Rock the dots also purposely coincides with National Polka Dot day. So a couple weeks ago, I brought out my dots! I’ve had this American Apparel dot blouse for a few years now and I love it to death. It always adds the perfect amount of whimsy to any outfit. But with my round Asian face and short stature, going full on whimsy can tend to make me look a little tooo doll-ish. And if you haven’t guessed already, I ain’t always a doll.😏
So I paired my shirt with sleeker items like a polished faux suede moto jacket and slick skinny jeans with a distressed knee, which helps give the whole look a little extra edge. And to really #RockTheDots, I paired my dotted shirt with studded dot ballet flats. Another great example of something sweet, yet polished with some edge. And of course, I had to top it all off with my favorite Mickey bag.🐭

And since National Polka Dot day was on a Sunday, we of course had to go out for brunch. So we stopped by The Palm House. Got myself the spam and eggs benedict, which was much more filling than I was expecting it to be. But the brown hash brown looking thing on the bottom…it’s actually a rice “hash brown” if you will. Genius. And the eggs… perfectly…poached. Yolk splits that were food porn worthy. And the spam wasn’t actual spam. Instead☝️, gourmet braised pork shoulder. Yes, I may have had to wipe some drool off my face as I write this post.😛
And aside from the food, the restaurant itself is adorable. Is city beach house chic a decor term? Lots of blue with palm green accents. And if you’re sad about having to eat brunch instead of watching your favorite team play, fret not! But come on, who actually says no to brunch?! But if you insist on watching the game, there is a bar area with TVs and you can happily scarf down your jerk chicken tacos or huevos rancheros while watching people professionally tackle each other. I, personally, prefer to enjoy a hot cup of tea.☕️
