As a diehard foodie, I must say that brunch truly is the best of both worlds. Somewhat of a hybrid between breakfast and lunch, this charming meal serves up a twist upon traditional cuisine, leading to bottomless mimosas and some much needed girl talk. After an entire week spent stressing over last minute projects, there truly is nothing more relaxing than being able to catch up with my closest friends over a kale and asparagus salad. Since these gatherings are all about ease and comfort, when heading out to brunch at my favorite french cafe I like my wardrobe choices to follow suit, for in cases like these less truly is more.
In the midst of finals week mayhem, I spotted this savvy Fashionista sporting an ensemble perfect for a mid-morning gossip sesh. While it may seem customary to pull out your best threads and a pair of heels for your next brunch date, try your best to avoid doing so, for the same sartorial qualities can be found in more relaxed pieces as well. If you don’t think you’re quite ready to pull off the mom jeans trend (I have already done so, and I’m never looking back!), take a couple styling cues from this Fashionista and sport a classic cropped pair instead. Other than being vastly versatile, staples such as these jeans will pair nicely with most of the items in your closet. To maintain a minimalistic vibe throughout your look, follow in this Fashionista’s footsteps and opt for a sweatshirt in a solid hue. When paired with dainty accessories like this Fashionista’s pendant and metallic sandals, those frilly dresses and heels of brunches past will surely become a distant memory!
One Simple Change: As the end of the semester is fast approaching, school banquets will likely mark a spot on your calender. By swapping the jeans out for a pair of cropped trousers and ditching the sandals for a pair of kitten heels, you’ll easily have a look perfect for your next school banquet dinner.
