Sibling Rivalry

I love the name of this restaurant. The two brothers who own Sibling Rivalry came from a family of 10 children! The younger one was inspired by the older one's talent and passion for creating remarkable cuisine so he entered the restaurant scene and ever since than has been living his dream. I hope Charlotte and Christopher will inspire and learn from each other when they grow up.
Everything on the menu looked great and we had such a hard time deciding.
We ordered a variety of items to create a family style dinner. This dish in particular was unique and delicious, one of Charlotte's favorite. It was a combination of braised beef brisket, greens, and mash potatoes.
One of our friends ordered this drink and I loved the color and label on the bottle, was tempted to take the empty bottle home to use as a vase ;)
The birthday girl got a special creme brulee with a candle.
This is one of my favorite blazer because depending on how I button it, the jacket drapes differently. I wore this during the Spring-time as seen HERE and it was equally comfy.
I love the high-funnel collar on this sweater, it's a great alternative to the scarf to keep me warm and toasty.

This winter I am loving chunky sweaters. The bigger the better. Not only do they provide a ton of warmth, they're also quite stylish as well. A black jacket or blazer does a great job of slimming down the chunkiness of it and gives you a slimmer silhouette. To complete my monochromatic color scheme, I stayed neutral with a black and white cross-body and gray heels. The ostrich print and leopard spots gave texture to my otherwise plain outfit.  
These Prada pumps are surprisingly very comfy. My niece gave them to me 3 years ago and this is the first time I wore them. Apparently she had an eye for future fashion because leopard prints are showing up everywhere this year ;)
