In my opinion, the most fabulous meal of the day has to be brunch. I have an obsession with seeking out the best breakfast/lunch spots in the city. It’s definitely not essential but it is the perfect excuse to get dressed up to go out with your girlfriends for an Instagramable vanilla latte and french toast!

This Fashionista’s outfit incorporates a pop of color for summer while still keeping everything very neutral and classic. If you want to look incredibly put together instantly, put in some simple pearl earrings and spend an extra few minutes to add some texture to your hair by curling it. The delicate, gold monogramed necklace ties her jewelry look together flawlessly.

Moving on to her super comfy top, shorts and (believe it or not) shoes, she paired a white, knit sweater with some adorable loose fitting alice + olivia shorts. Her high neck sweater is so versatile and light in the summer heat. I adore the pattern and beautiful tangerine color of her high-waisted shorts, and it is so easy to find similar styles from Forever 21.

Her platform shoes take the cake in my book. These are so on trend and, as I mentioned before, they are so easy to walk in! The metallic detail is subtle yet so gorgeous and the heel height is super appropriate and chic for early afternoon excursions. It is always smart to bring a cross-body bag so you are hands free while walking in the city. Chances are you may stop at a local farmers market and pick out some fresh flowers.

One Simple Change: As your brunch unfortunately comes to an end, you may plan on running errands. Swap out your platforms for some sandals and your sweater for a cotton T-shirt. You’ll be out the door in no time but it’s best to stay comfortable on the go!
