As a newly initiated member of life in the Big Apple, I’ve come to learn that brunch is just a fact of life. What better way to celebrate the weekend than by catching up with friends over Mimosas at a cute corner café? Brunch is the perfect opportunity to ditch your conservative work attire for something cute, rad and more you. And once you’re full of delicious foods and juicy secrets, you’re free to roam the city, hit up the sales or check out the latest exhibition. Whatever your plans are, you want to be cute, comfy and down for whatever your day holds.

This Fashionista’s ensemble is a brunch look that’s on point. A cute white crochet top is a sweet, feminine option that will keep you cool at an outdoor brunch. A simple denim skirt saves the outfit from looking too girly and in case you missed it denim skirts are seriously having a moment right now. The chic A-line silhouette gives the outfit some heavy Alexa Chung Parisian vibes and who doesn’t want to look like Alexa Chung? A pair of statement lace-up sandals is definitely a closet staple to add, giving you a little hint of sexy without being over the top. The flat sole of the shoes keeps you comfortable as you trek the concrete jungle.

One Simple Change: Maybe you have to run errands after brunch and you want to be more comfortable and laid back? Swap out the crochet top for a super soft T-shirt and some sneakers and you’re all set. Grab your favorite sunnies, and you’re ready to tackle those chores.
