Sunday is arguably the best day of the week for brunch.  It is the morning after a (hopefully) great Friday and Saturday night, even if those nights were just spent catching up on your favorite TV shows with your favorite, littlest members of your family.  It is the morning that sets the tone for the very last day of the week before the always-dreaded Monday.  And a late morning catch-up with friends over an amazing breakfast and lunch spread is exactly what is in order.  Top that with an unbelievable view of one of my most beloved cities, Philadelphia, and there is nothing better.  SkyBrunch and Punch Media PR hosted myself and a handful of other local bloggers, who happen to be the most gorgeous group of ladies around, to brunch this past weekend and we got to experience the expansive views that the 50th floor of the venue has to offer, the delicious buffet, and so much more.  I personally loved the blood orange mimosas.  And they also have a build-your-own hot chocolate bar where you can customize a mug of the quintessential holiday drink with any of your favorite liquor concoctions, cookies and whipped cream.  We got to try one and it was so, so good!  I will definitely be back for that alone next time and will be adding the idea to my bar cart this holiday season.  Before we left, we headed up to the SkyGarten on the 51st floor of the building and were able to experience panoramic views that would be the perfect backdrop for a wedding, cocktail reception, corporate outing, or a night out with friends.  If you are in the area or if you plan on traveling to Philly, make sure to stop by SkyBrunch Top of the Tower and check out all they have to offer.

This rib-knit dress from H&M was the perfect pick for brunch.  It was one of my most-worn dresses during the end of my pregnancy and I have worn it post-pregnancy, in colder temps, too.  It is super comfortable and the color block detail really stands out.  I love the long length, side-slits and the fact that you can make it as casual or dressy as you want.  I can wear it with sneaks to drop off my daughter at preschool, then pair it with ankle boots and a moto jacket for an afternoon meeting and change into over-the-knee suede boots and a favorite clutch for date night.  This exact dress has sold out online, but check local stores!  And I have linked similar options as well as other items I would pair it with.
