Outfit of the Day- Brunch at Verde Kitchen and Cocktails

As someone who is constantly on the lookout for instagrammable places, you can imagine my excitement when I discovered this cozy little spot called Verde Kitchen and Cocktails.

Located on the Main Street of Bayshore, Long Island, this restaurant will make you feel like you're dining inside a botanical garden. They've been open since October 24, 2014 and from then until now, it seems they've been perfecting the art of creating Authentic Mexican.

Jeffy and I enjoyed Sunday Brunch together complete with Barbacoa Beef filled tacos and pulled pork sandwiches. My dish came with a side of fried plantains that were surprisingly (and deliciously) spicy rather than the traditional sweet plantains I'm used to!

The real kicker though? We shared a tres leches cake for dessert that was TO DIE FOR. (Seriously, I'd be willing to take a bullet for this cake.) It was heavenly and light, topped with caramelized popcorn and dusted with spicy Mexican chocolate. I like my food to be just as adventurous as me, and this cake was an exquisite marriage of so many foods I never would've thought to combine.

And of course, where would brunch be without a cocktail or two? I'm not entirely sure when "brunch and mimosas" became the new "milk and cookies," but you don't see me complaining! Especially not when the mimosa of choice is watermelon flavored! It tasted like a jolly rancher, and that is a major win in my book. Jeff's mimosa was Hibiscus flavored and it was just as delicious! This comes as no shock though as Verde is known for their craft cocktails. We didn't have a chance to try them that morning, but their margaritas are said to be incredible too!

One of my favorite parts about Verde is their interior. We were seated in their sunny green house where the walls are made entirely of glass and little boxes filled with plants and herbs sit in each window. Our waiter confirmed that these herbs are, in fact, used in their cooking! Better still, everything is organically grown and super fresh. Perhaps it's that freshness that makes everything so good!
I recently picked up this dress from Urban Outfitters, and couldn't wait to wear it! It seemed like the perfect brunch ensemble (minus the fact that I spilled my Mimosa on it... oops!) I'm obsessing over all things linen right now and I'm sure I'm not alone on that one!

I wanted to keep everything simple to give off that "I'm-a-rich-Hamptonite" vibe. A girl can dream can't she? So I paired it with my favorite white sunnies (also from Urban outfitters) and these strappy black heels I scored at Forever 21.

It was a lovely Sunday afternoon spent stuffing ourselves with fantastic food. Luckily, this dress lends itself quite well to the food baby you'll want to give yourself at a place like Verde Kitchen and Cocktails.
