Mermaids Have More Fun: A Subculture Coffee Date in West Palm

August 8, 2019

Mermaids Cove Lilly Pulitzer Hollie tunic

While I was in Palm Beach, I was lucky enough to meet up with my Disney bestie, Kristen. We met over social media years ago, finally met in person back in 2018 on a Disney girls trip, and basically had a total Step Brothers moment - you know, where you meet someone & just instantly become best friends? She had a beautiful baby girl earlier this year, so she's been rockin' the #momboss label for a while now, but I was so happy she was able to carve out some time to meet up with me when I was in town for the Pink Retreat. I couldn't be that close & not see her, you know? Plus, mommin' is hard, y'all, and I know girlfriend needed a break. So good friends + brunch + iced coffee?? Um, yes please. We will never say no to that!

Kristen is from the area so naturally knows where not only all the ace brunch spots are, but where all the cute instagrammable walls are, too. It was a bonus that the place she picked had both: Subculture Coffee.

Subculture Coffee has the coolest laid back atmosphere - very chill with a bit of an indie vibe. The food & coffee were nothing short of amazing - Kristen's acai bowl was a literal edible rainbow, and my definitely-not-healthy-but-um-hello-gorgoeus bacon & cheese sandwich did not disappoint. I mean, I was on vacation after all, and everyone knows the vacation calories don't count (plus, peep that arugula. Veggies. Boom! Healthy).

What else makes Subculture such a cool spot is the patio area. There's a huge colorful mural and an umbrella canopy over the patio (hello rainbow aesthetic, thy name is Instagram)!

I was still in Pink Retreat mode, so I was decked out in my Mermaids Cove finest. This Hollie tunic is one of my favorite pieces because it basically has all the hallmarks of a perfect dress that is 100% me: 60s flair with the bell sleeves, a bright & colorful aesthetic, and it has mermaids all over it (Ariel would be jelly).

I kept with the theme & added these mermazing Sugarfix by BaubleBar mermaid earrings. I had to go to 3 different Targets to track them down, but it was well worth it. To finish it off, I added this rose gold mermaid necklace and a starfish bracelet.

I really need one of these umbrella canopies at my house. Oooh could you imagine the Disney version of this? 50 Minnie polka dot mouse-eared umbrellas, gently swaying in the breeze above my back porch? (Who will help me convince my husband we need this?)

If you want to get your coffee on (with a side of rainbow), definitely swing by Subculture, located at 509 Clematis Street. Bring your gal pals, your gossip, and your appetite - come for the coffee, stay for the vibe.

Until next time!
