Bottomless Brunch with The Fountain Kitchen & Wine Bar

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

This past weekend Travis and I had the opportunity to attend Bottomless Brunch at The Fountain Kitchen & Wine Bar in Sarasota! We are huge foodies and love brunch so of course we were super excited to start off our Saturday with some yummy food and drinks!

If you have never been, The Fountain Kitchen & Wine Bar is quite literally located right behind a fountain and is located in the historic district of Sarasota, FL. The location itself if perfection located among super cute shops and businesses, this is a great brunch spot! The restaurant has a great patio space, perfect for when the weather is nice, we really enjoyed it! The inside is chic as well with a modern feel and focus on the bar and the wine on the walls, it’s so fun and different! Anyways, let’s talk drinks, first off the bottomless drinks are amazing and you have the option of mimosas or bellinis (my personal favorite). Next up the food, y’all the food what AMAZING! The menu is simple with something for everyone, whether you like sweet, savory, or classic there is something for you! I chose to go with the french toast with fresh berries and bacon, which was some of the best french toast I have ever had! It was perfectly soft and fluffy and the berries and cream were a perfect pairing! Travis ordered the breakfast pizza, if was more than a personal size and topped with eggs, bacon, breakfast potatoes, cheese and onion, it was Travis approved and he finished the whole thing! To top it all off the service was amazing! Our glasses were never empty and we were always taken care of!

So needless to say we had a great time at brunch on Saturday not only were the food and bottomless drinks amazing, the ambiance was so calming and easy going! It was so easy to enjoy ourselves and take our time sipping our drinks and relaxing on the patio! I would highly recommend checking them out for your next brunch! Check out their who menu HERE they are also open for lunch and dinner!

T-Shirt Shop Series: Look 2

Continuing with the T-shirt shop series this week, we have a cute pineapple tank (yes I know not a t-shirt but close enough)! This one I got for a steal from Old Navy about 2 weeks ago for $12! I went a different way with styling this look from last week's look, definitely more casual! This is the perfect weekend outfit whether you are walking around the farmer's market our getting a manicure it's casual and cute! I jazzed up the classic tank and jeans with some pops of color with the bag and the bangles just to give a little edge to the outfit, and make it a little more fun for spring time! Outfit details listed below, and I would love to know what your favorite brands are for T's and tanks!!
