WHAT TO WEAR: Brunch

There are not a lot of things that I enjoy more than brunch. It’s a sweet and fat-filled mid-morning treat paired with a little bubbly and orange juice. How could anyone not love that? Not only is brunch an excuse for deep-fried foods in the daytime, it is a re-charger from the night before. While showing up to brunch in your clothes from the party last night may be less than ideal, there are a couple of fool-proof accessories to take last night’s outfit and make it a brunch-appropriate one.

Day two curls and a little bit of bedhead are easily hidden with a trendy floppy hat. Simply comb out any hair pieces, and smooth in a little Bed Head smoothing cream to the ends of your hair.  Throw on that floppy hat for extra style and to hide any fly away strands. A beige lace top can easily be dressed up with a simple gold knotted necklace. While every Oregonian needs a nice pair of rain-resistant boots, there is a trick to keep yourself warm and add some cuteness to those boots—over-the-knee socks with a lace trim. That is one of my favorite go-to accessories for winter, and I’m fairly positive you can never own enough of them.

One of my favorite pieces trending right now is the leather backpack. They can be dressed up for a girl’s night out or taken to class as your everyday scholarly bag. This Fashionista accessorized her early brunch attire with a small sized leather backpack by Coach. You can pretty much keep anything in it, whether that be your Econ book or makeup wipes and extra coconut oil (in case of a real emergency).

The best way to enjoy a weekend is with some good friends and even better food.

One Simple Change: Just finished up brunch and onto an afternoon of outdoor errands? Try adding a thick, knit infinity scarf and a light jacket to take this outfit from indoors to outdoors in a matter of seconds.
