Brunch Style for Fall

IMG_6848.JPG

Over the years, I have met some pretty awesome people through various food events and gatherings. If you follow me on Instagram (where I got my humble beginnings) you have probably noticed my right hand woman, Bari, in a few of my photos

Bari and I started on the food and Instagram scene around the same time and became quick friends. Nearly four years later, we are a bit of a dynamic duo pretty hard. She is a fantastic food photographer and influencer covering food from “street to elite” in Philadelphia and beyond. You can follow her adventures via her instagram: @baris_belly

Growing out of our mutual love for food, fashion and photography, we organically formed our own past-time we call Sunday Funday. A form of soul therapy, the recipe for Sunday Funday is simple. We plan brunch in an area of the city we would like to explore, don our Sunday’s best (or whatever fashion mood strikes us) and spend the day together eating, partaking in libations and snapping photos of street art (and of each other). 

For our first Sunday Funday of the Fall season, we coincidentally arrived at brunch twinning in oversized scarves and capes.

A timeless trend that is probably my favorite staple of fall fashion is the art of layering. Bari has always been the Queen of Layers and showing up in an off the shoulder sweater, black skinny jeans and an over-sized scarf. This year, I’ve been particularly inspired by turtlenecks and capes, which have been making a strong appearance in my favorite stores this season. My favorite combination of the moment is pairing turtlenecks with a button-up shirt and slacks.  We both completed our looks with Chelsea boots and hats.


We dined at W.M. Muhlherin’s Sons a former whiskey blending and bottling company turned modern Italian Restaurant and Boutique Hotel, which is always a stellar dining experience. Following we explored some of the great murals along Front Street including a few the Honeygrow headquarters completed as part of their Front Street Walls project. As an added bonus, it’s Mural Arts Month here in Philadelphia, so be sure to learn more about some of the artists and the abundance of murals we have in the city.

Summer Style with Dapper Black Box™ - July Edition

 At Geo's Table we believe in the uplifting and supporting those changing the game in our community. Brunch Style is part two of the Geo’s Table “Summer Style”  collaboration  with the trailblazing, Black-owned subscription service Dapper Black Box.

Each month subscribers receive a carefully curated selection of men's accessories, grooming products and other tokens designed for the style conscious gentleman. The best part, every month the products featured are made with love by black entrepreneurs and businesses.

As a bow-tie fanatic this month’s box included quite the surprise an Oversized Black Satin Bow-Tie  & Pocket Square by Tie Fetish.  Sleek, modern with just a touch of flare, it’s the perfect accessory for a summer black tie wedding or in my case, a fancy brunch in Rittenhouse Square.

In addition to the products from Tie Fetish, this month's box also included Coral Oral Toothbrushes and a BLK Proverbs Grab Bag.

Style Inspiration for July

Sunday Brunch followed by an epic Sunday Funday is my favorite way to end the weekend and energize myself for the week ahead. Armed with the confidence only an oversized bow tie paired with some bright pastel colors can bring - I stepped out on the town. Although the rain tried to damper our plans we were successful in our adventures for the day.

My photographer, Stacey (@phillystory on Instagram) and I spent the day traveling to some of the most photogenic spots in Rittenhouse Square - followed by a celebratory meal at the hottest new brunch spot: Harper's Garden.

Summer Style with Dapper Black Box™

At Geo's Table we believe in the uplifting and supporting those changing the game in our community. With that, I am excited to announce an exclusive collaboration with the trailblazing, black-owned subscription service, Dapper Black Box.

Each month subscribers receive a carefully curated selection of men's accessories, grooming products and other tokens designed for the style conscious gentleman. The best part, every month the products featured are made with love by black entrepreneurs and businesses.

Over the course of the summer, I will be collaborating with Dapper Black Box™ to present you with some tips and fashion inspiration to keep you "dapper" all summer long.    First up, is the June's Dapper Black Box™, made in honor of a former member of the Texas Legislature, Al Edwards. This month's box included a Blue Gingham Check Neck-Tie and matching Pocket Square by Jay Kirby Ties, Summer Socks by Harrison Blake  and a Chimere Bump Control Cleansing Bar.

Style Inspiration for June

There's a certain finesse needed to pull-off a tie in the summer, but after falling love with in the Blue Gingham Check Neck-Tie and matching Pocket Square by Jay Kirby, I was up for the challenge.  Pulling some more formal summer staples from my closet, and being willing to get a little adventurous with patterns, I was able to pull off not just one but two outfits! These ensembles are perfect for a weekend brunch, day party or a more casual summer wedding.

All photos were taken by my good friend, Stacey. Check out some of her awesome photography on her instagram: @phillystory .
