Things We Love: Elizabeth McKay & Brunch at T. Cook’s

Treat Every Day Like You’re on Vacation

There’s nothing like spending the warm Summer days in resort
wear.  In Arizona, the summers are very warm, but to get
through the hot days, you just need to treat every day like a vacation!
Drink lots of ice tea, make fancy drinks, and spend time near the

Brittany and I have realized that light, quick dry, and stylish
apparel that is for both the Summer heat and brunch is the
best way to go.

Brunch at T. Cook’s wearing Elizabeth McKay

After doing some style hunting, we’ve found that Elizabeth McKay makes
a variety of dresses that are perfect for every occasion. For brunch,
Brittany wore The Elizabeth Tunic Dress and I wore The Alexia Shirt
Dress.  We loved that these two dresses don’t wrinkle, they are
lightweight and really easy to wear!

We also picked out the Scotland Dresses in two different patterns.
Brittany picked out the Navy White Elephant patterned dress and I
picked out the blue and green patterned dress.  We love the way that
these dresses look.  Collectively, it’s one of our all time favorite
styles!  Elizabeth McKay makes this dress in a variety of patterns!
I’d like to have one in each pattern!  This is easily a dress I could
wear every single day. The ruffled collar and wrap dress combination
are perfect!  The dress has pockets and it even comes with two
different belts.  I put the belt with gold buttons on the dress and
tied the matching wrap belt in my hair like a headband.  I’m
constantly looking for headbands to match my dress, so this is

In an effort to vacation in our resort wear attire, we spent the
day at The Royal Palms Resort in Scottsdale.  The property is one of
The Historic Hotels of America, and is conveniently located near The
Biltmore Mall and Scottsdale’s Fashion Square Mall.  We headed to
T.Cook’s Restaurant inside The Royal Palms Resort for a mid-morning
brunch.  The Spanish style decor inside the restaurant is not only
beautiful but very inviting and charming.

We started our brunch with red and white sangria, Brittany had the
white and I had the red.  It was so refreshing to have such cool and
delicious drinks on such a hot Summer day.  As we sipped our drinks
and looked over the menu, our fabulous waiter brought us pesto and
bread.  I ordered the Huevos Rancheros and Brittany ordered the Flat
Iron Steak.  Both items were wonderful and very nice sized portions.
For dessert, we shared the Mocha Valencia Torte and we each had Illy
cappuccino.  We absolutely loved the atmosphere at T. Cook’s
Restaurant. The staff is phenomenal, the food is great, and the entire
experience was really fun!

Special thank you to T. Cook’s for the fabulous brunch experience.
