Like always, the beginning of the semester is creeping up faster than we expected it to and unfortunately, that means summer will soon be coming to an end. There will be a lot less time for Netflix and a lot more time spent in the library. Take my advice and soak up every last minute of free time that you have by doing exciting things because during the semester, all you will be concerned with is how much you can procrastinate and still pass the class (we’ve all been there).

Here’s an idea. Why don’t you try grabbing brunch with a few friends? There won’t be much time during the semester when you will be able to relax and enjoy quality friend time in the middle of the day due to the clashing of everyone’s school schedules. Also, it will give you an excuse to have a drink before noon and wear that super cute new dress you bought that has been tucked away in your closet with the tags still on it.

This Fashionista’s look is perfect for brunch on a hot, summer day. Her neutral-colored high-to-low dress paired with her large sun hat give her a very sophisticated look. This Fashionista decided to go a step further and add a bit more detail and color to her outfit. She wrapped a belt around her waist and added a bright, blue shoulder bag. Both of these details make her look standout and turn heads. She ties everything together with some chic ankle-strap wedges. This Fashionista is definitely prepared to rock her stylish look all day long, starting with brunch, of course.
