STYLE GURU STYLE: I Brunch, Therefore I Am

Well it’s official, spring is in the air. Spring is a time of rebirth and rejuvenation. Spring also holds a lot of promises. For example: the actual sun, the freedom of spring break, aggressive pollen, and in my case, very aggressive tan lines. And where there are sunny spring break days, there are sure to be many outdoor brunch dates and rooftop cocktails. But sometimes it’s hard to find that perfect combination of comfortable, casual, AND on trend.

I present to you: my ideal spring brunch look. Despite the unfortunate tan lines, I chose to rock an off-the-shoulder frock anyway. This pinstripe print throws an unintentional nod to seersucker, a Southern spring staple. The hanging sleeves can be tied or hang free, allowing for versatility. I paired the dress with my favorite raw-hemmed Levi’s to keep things fresh and updated. Because comfortable footwear is key when one is slinging mimosas, I chose these textured Superga sneakers. And I do mean comfortable, these babies were there for me as I trekked the unforgiving cobble streets in Europe last summer so if you’re looking for a reliable new sneaker, I highly recommend. For accessories I kept it simple with this white cotton choker that’s giving us MAJOR 60s Twiggy vibes and rounded it off with my favorite black leather bucket bag from Zara. Pro tip: Zara’s bag selection is always ON POINT and won’t break the bank.

Whether you’re riding solo or with the whole girl squad, you can count on a trendy off-the-shoulder piece and denim combo to casually slay while enjoying that avocado toast and all of the mimosas.
