Perpetual Perfection’s Houston Brunch Guide

Perpetual Perfection's Houston Brunch Guide

 

1. Tout Suite

I think this might be Winnie and my new place. It’s kind of the perfect blend of “us.” For me, brunch, sweets, black and white everything. For him, a bit edgy, very industrial, no lines (absolute must with this country boy), and amazing food made from local farmers. If you’re in Houston… puhlease try it. Oh, and if you don’t get the mushroom toast – stop reading this blog we have nothing in common. ūüėČ

2. Revival Market

Local grocery, butcher, and little cafe. Winston and I come here often. We love the Heights and the food is impeccable. Also, they allow pooches on the patio so Hattie girl gets to tag along.

3. Tiny Boxwood’s

Ultimate favorite. So girly and french. I have to say I love the atmosphere more than the food if I’m being totally honest. But the french music and feeling like Meryl Streep’s character from It’s Complicated is gonna pop out from the kitchen at any moment with a croissant… and I don’t even like croissants. I know, I know. I’m a freak for not liking croissants.

4. Common Bond

My addiction. In Montrose,  the atmosphere is perfect blend of trend without trying too hard. Their pastries are to die for and oh my gawwwshhh their lavender latte.

5. Adair Kitchen

Adair just feels like home. It’s¬†warm and inviting. Their chicken and waffles is sinful. You can add bacon into the waffle batter. Probably the actual reason I’ve gained weight, but I’ll still call it my “boyfriend layer.” It’s an easier blame than admitting waffle addiction.

6. Brennan’s

A New Orleans classic… in Houston. Can it get any better? I think not. Soups 1-1-1. Hashbrown crusted chicken. Banana’s Foster. Get all of them. My favorite special occasion brunch.

7. Weights and Measures

Actually in an old warehouse. A fun casual atmosphere. Smells divine. Do I need to go on? It’s really just a fun little place you should experience it.

8. Down House

Livin’ in a hipster’s parrraaadiissee. I know, all my places are hipster, but this is the quintessential hipster joint. Craft cocktails. Fun twists on old favorites and their staff is just the nicest. My old pal, Amber, and I always come here for a catch up date.

9. Liberty Kitchen

Texas sized portions. A local “chain” that is off the chain. The shrimps and grits is incredible. Honestly, anything is incredible. A fun group brunch place, but get there early it gets super crowded.

 10. Le Peep

This spot isn’t pretty, but it’s dang good. It’s one of my friend Shushu’s go to for her and her hubs. Bonus, one of the locations is within walking distance of my house.

Have brunch plans this weekend in Houston? You have to try one of these. What are you favorite brunch spots?

 

Black, White, and Brown Interiors

Dating an architect has definitely made my change design style evolve dramatically. Before, the more frills the better, but now I also see the beauty in minimalism. Right now… it’s my jam. Clean lines. Three colors. It just seems calming in a world of sensory overload. The less clutta the betta, no? Don’t believe me? Look at the amazing collective of spaces I’m currently coveting:

Do you see what I mean? A little bit of serenity without going all zen day-spa on you. It’s kind of refreshing to get back to the basics a little? Let’s be real though, y’all know I go through these phases where I’m obsessed with a certain look and then tomorrow I’m on to the next. A blessing and a curse. Winston might be turning me into a minimalist-hipster one day at a time. I can’t lie… I don’t hate the idea.¬†What do you think of the look?

Getting back to Paleo next week. Juli is my go to on all things paleo.

Obsessed with Lovely Bride founder’s Brooklyn home… and her. Next. Level.

Wedding Wednesday: Rue De Seine

Happy Wedding Wednesday, perfectionists! I simply love Wednesday getting to share¬†my current wedding obsessions. Bridal designer,¬†Rue De Seine,¬†has my heart currently. I knew about theNew Zealand designer for a long time, but it wasn’t until I saw them at Lovely Bride in New York¬†in July that I fell hard. It’s your glamorous bohemian bride. The cool girl. The fashion forward bride with the¬†amazing intimate wedding where you pray you’ll be invited. The newest collection set it hit this fall is next level. I’ve gotten a sneak peak and you’ll cry it’s so good. The new collection will be at Lovely Bride Houston opening early fall. Without further ado, check out my favorites from the current¬†Nomadic Love Collection.

Blossom-Side-600x900

Blossom is making me rethink my “look” entirely. If not for your wedding at least for ACL, right? Totally practical.

Chloe-Front-600x900Can I wear Chloe everyday?

Side2-600x900

Twirl city in Roxy. The epitome of Lovely.

Side8-600x900

Jasmine and this model are my spirit animals.

Front5-600x900

Last but not least, dainty Sophia. The gown I would wear tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that. Simple. Classic.

And those were only my top five favorites from one collection. Can you handle it? ¬†Rue De Seine is everything. Don’t they make you want to elope to some amazing remote area and make your love take an endless amount of photos? No? Just me?

Sigh, my bridal style changes daily. Who is your favorite bridal designer?

CB2 Home Must Haves


Okay, I know I’m like reeaalllll late to the party over here, but y’all.
CB2 is the bomb.com. I know what you’re thinking, “Wow, why are we even reading her blog? She clearly knows nothing.” And to that I would have to agree. In my defense though, I think it’s gotten exponentially better and this year’s Fall catalog. Stop. I can’t. It’s too good. It’s glam. It’s modern. It’s traditional. It’s actually just everything (insert hand emojis here). Before I go on and on, take a look at my favorites from their fall catalog and my¬†10 things you need to order right meow.
