If you know me you know I live for spots with a nice patio. This was my first time eating in Brookside and it did not disappoint. There were so many little restaurants with the cutest patios! I will definitely be back to try out the other restaurants. We went to R- bar and Grill and despite my initial thought that it would be mostly pub style food, I was wrong! They did have some pub style food but for the most part it was a pretty upscale menu. We got the truffle fries for an appetizer, my husband got the chicken and waffles, and I got the Sorrentino Salad. They had a huge list of drinks and I got the Mercat Brut Rose' It was very fruity and bubbly! The atmosphere was fun and upbeat. Service was fantastic, our waitress was very in top of things. All and all I would definitely recommend it! Anyways on to my outfit! I got this top and short combo at Express! They were having a buy one get one half off special this past weekend so I was all over that. If you get the chance to sign up for their emails, do it! They are always sending out coupons and letting you know their current sales. These shorts run very true to size and they are not stretchy so they aren't great for long trips FYI. I loved the lace detail and they made my casual outfit look a little fancier. The shorts come in black as well! This shirt was super comfy and I loved the color! It also comes several other colors and different cuts. These cute sandals are Steve Madden and I'm completely obsessed with them. I will link all outfit details below!
