Happy Hump Day babes! Yay for being half way through the week already! As you guys already know from me talking about it a million times, Park Avenue Fashion Week has been in full swing and I have been a busy bee! If you follow along on snapchat (@upbeatsoles) you have already seen some of the fun events that have been going down (and some of our sick dance moves! ;p) On Sunday PAFW kicked off with the Inaugural Brunch and we all had a BLAST and of course the food was amazing! Oh there was a mimosa and bloody mary bar sooooo… ya!
The brunch was held at the GORGEOUS Alfond Inn in Winter Park. I am pretty sure a staycation might need to happen here! The grounds were so beautiful! PAFW is sponsored by Harriet Lake who is known for always wearing a funky hat so naturally they had hats for all of us to wear at the brunch, which we had a little too much fun with!

I told you we can’t resist busting out some sweet dance moves! Especially when they hire a rocker violinist that looks like Thor. Yes muscles, man bun and all! They obviously knew how to please a large group of ladies! ;)
Monday night was the Fashion of Cocktails event held at the cutest retro bar on Park Avenue, Park Social. Bartenders from the best restaurants in Winter Park competed for the best craft cocktail and to be able to bartend at the fashion show on Saturday! Guys let me tell you how amazing these cocktails were! My favorite was a mint, bourbon and ginger beer cocktail with a molasses and sugar rim, soooo divine, Griffin’s favorite was a whole bunch stuff I can’t remember with a brunt orange slice and candied bacon cooked in duck fat! They ended up winning of course! Such a fun event!
Of course the hubs had to come along, he heard the word cocktails…. Also I was dressed by Forema for the event, how fabulous are these suede culottes?!
You can check out the full list of PAFW events happening the rest of the week here! Also if you live in Central Florida you won’t want to miss the main fashion show happening this Saturday! Don’t forget to get your tickets! I hope you all have an awesome Wednesday! <3
