There are few things I love more than an afternoon gossip session filled with good friends, good food and good fashion. Between sipping fancy drinks and enjoying little pastries, brunch is the perfect time to catch up and relax with friends. I spotted this Fashionista as she was heading to the city for brunch with her closest gal pals. With a loose sweater, ankle boots and printed scarf, her outfit is a sweet recipe for style, spiced up with her sassy accessories.
My personal favorite aspect of the outfit is the chic ankle boots. They take every outfit from jeans to skirts up a notch. You can find cute black ankle boots anywhere, even with champagne taste and a beer budget. Adding a little heel makes you stand taller and walk with confidence!
This Fashionista goes wild with picking a standout accessory. Her animal print scarf lends just the right amount of safari-chic without looking like she stepped out of Animal Kingdom. Her army green high-waisted shorts are a great color to pair with browns, creams and prints. Zebra and cheetah print accessories were big on fall 2013 ready-to-wear runways, and this Diane von Furstenberg scarf is the perfect asset to any outfit.
The great thing about these pieces is how versatile they are. In the winter, thick tights can be layered underneath the shorts to provide warmth. In the summer, the heavy scarf can be traded in for a printed head wrap to keep cool. Strappy sandals can be added in for the warmer months and nude flats can make the look casual and cool for spring. This Fashionsta carried a small brown clutch with her, though a large boho satchel would also look very cute and be functional. Having a neutral color palette enables the wearer to play around with accessories suitable for all seasons!
One Simple Change: With the boots and high-waisted shorts, this look can be ready for a night out on the town with a swanky blouse. Perfect transition from girls’ day to girls’ night out!
