What to Wear

If there’s one thing to know about me, it’s that I have a strong distaste toward pants. If there are two things to know about me, it’s that I have a strong distaste toward pants, and I love brunch more than almost anything on this earth. Not only is it the perfect time for a morning catch-up date with your friends, or possibly a boy who slept over (this is a no judgment zone), but you also get to wake up late and eat waffles. I believe it was Buddha who once said, “Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without brunch.”

Yeah, that was definitely him.

While I could discuss the nuances of brunch for probably hours (plural), I’ll direct my attention to what is arguably one of its best aspects, and that, of course, is what to wear. Since summer is now long behind us, we can no longer throw on a flowy tank or some high-waisted shorts and head out the door. It may seem like your brunch wardrobe is now a thing of the past until the flowers begin to bloom once again, but this Fashionista counters that notion with her chic look.

Her tailored jacket shows off a strong print that’s perfectly suited for fall as well as everyone’s favorite fall hobby of layering. Tucked away underneath her jacket is a tan fur vest, which is bound to keep her warm during a Michigan autumn. Instead of rocking simple flats or boots, she opts for the trend that keeps on trending: the wedge sneaker. It should be noted that Isabel Marant knows how to make a classic. She tops it off with a simple black scarf that works just as well indoors as it does out.

Fall is an opportune time to switch up your brunch attire, which in turn means more opportunities to brunch — yet another reason to love the season.

One Simple Change: While I like to keep my delusion in full form in regards to winter, the presence of snow over winter break is inevitable. While her wedge sneakers are basically perfect, they’re no match for Michigan in December. These shearling boots are a great alternative for when you have to face the harsh realities of winter and refuse to settle for UGGs.
