WHAT TO WEAR: Brunch

My school morning routine consists of scrambling for a K-cup to brew my more than necessary cup of coffee and throwing on something comfortable to run over to my early morning classes. Now that classes are over, brunch seems to be the new meal of the day that I take advantage of since I no longer have to rush to my 8:00 a.m. classes!

To look and feel appropriately dressed for summer brunch dates, I like to work off of chic basics and add fun accessories just as this Fashionista did so flawlessly. She started off with a simple base of a bright cobalt blue, drapey dress. Try similar dresses such as this one or this one. This Fashionista then accessorized with a beautiful, chunky, nautical rope necklace from Anthropologie from a few years back and her favorite everyday diamond and gold hoop earrings from. Try necklaces like this one and earrings like these to replicate this Fashionista’s own accessories. She stacked bracelets that came from many different places across the world, including Israel, and kept the look clean and classic with some brown, thick-strapped leather sandals. Pair this outfit with a latte and an outside table at your favorite crêpe place.

One Simple Change: To take this look from brunching to bar hopping takes only a few pieces. This sweet daytime look can be turned into a fun, summer, bar scene outfit by adding a brown leather jacket. The beauty of a brown jacket is that it will match the brown sandals and continue the bright summer color palette as well as keep you from blending into the sea of black leather jackets that overpower the bar scene.
