No matter what the time of year, brunch is always appropriate. Hot chocolate and a good Eggs Benedict can warm a chilly soul in the dead of winter, while a nice mimosa and fresh fruit salad can cool someone down on a hot summer day. It’s tempting (and difficult not to) to do brunch every day. So, what are you to wear for such a ubiquitous event on the occasion that you do partake? It’s easy: go for something breezy and beautiful.

A simple shift dress is the perfect piece for a summer day’s brunch. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, a cotton shift dress is one of the most comfortable things you can wear. Plus, it’s effortlessly cute, making it the perfect thing to wear on a day when you’re having trouble getting out of bed before breakfast.

A solid shift dress, like the one on this Fashionista, allows for endless options when it comes to accessorizing. Something as basic as this silver feather charm necklace is just enough to make a look, while a statement piece like this fringe bag adds significantly to a look. Mix and match basics and statement accessories to create the perfectly balanced look tailored to your taste.

One Simple Change: Throw on some tennis shoes, grab a reusable bag and run some errands while you’re out and about. Let brunch fuel your reluctant grocery shopping needs and give you the strength to keep checking things off your to-do list.
