When it comes to going out to eat and looking good while doing so, there’s a lot to take into consideration. First, you have to plan out where and what you want to eat, and whether it is going to be messy or not. I personally love eating BBQ wings, Mango Habanero wings, or wings dripping in Mumbo Sauce. Which means going out to eat and dressing a specific way comes with risk for me. However, I don’t let my cravings and messy food habits stop me from dressing my best every day.
One Sunday evening, I chose to go out to a restaurant called Soco. Soco is located in Brooklyn, New York and is well known for its love for Black Culture, and flavorful chicken and waffles. In recent years, chicken and waffles have become a common brunch courtesy that many restaurants have their own spin on. What I love about Soco’s chicken and waffles is the island flavor in the chicken. The wings are drenched in lightly spiced jerk sauce, which went hand-in-hand with the sweet funnel cake-like waffles. The perfect meal for brunch, if I may say so myself. The music and atmosphere made the experience even better. Eating wings to the tune of Kanye, SZA, and Kendrick Lamar is basically everything I want in a brunch experience.
I topped off this perfect brunch experience with a white dress and green velvet heels. Yes, I said white dress! I fearlessly wore white and ate wings covered in jerk sauce. My dress was a white, one-shoulder midi dress and I accessorized it with my with chic green velvet heels. This particular outfit is very on-trend and great for going out to brunch, church, an interview or even as a date night outfit. The one shoulder and tie up in the middle gave the dress versatility to be worn for many occasions. The green velvet lace-up heels were a signature touch, that called attention to my look and complimented both my skin and style.
Any look is possible for any occasion. You can wear the most drastic yet the most simplistic outfit anywhere and have no worries, as long as you do it with confidence!
