Just a couple of weeks into the semester and students everywhere are feeling the pressure from their professors who continue to pile on more and more exams and papers. That is why it is so important to take the time to catch up with friends and have a little break from all the stress. Brunch is the perfect way to destress and to catch up with your girlfriends. It is also the perfect time to look good. I am a firm believer in the idea that your attitude improves with a good outfit. So if you want to take a break from your studies, put on a cute outfit that makes you feel good and do something for you. Whether that’s shopping, getting your nails done, a simple movie night in or going to brunch with friends, make sure to take the time to work on yourself. Otherwise, the semester will seem long and dooming.

This Fashionista looks positively cool for a brunch, wearing a simple black dress with a fashionable and warm scarf to accessorize. To escape the cold, she had on a black Michael Kors trench coat and purse to match. She wore snow friendly brown tie up booties that had enough heel to make the outfit more feminine and elegant. Simple makeup adorned her face making her appear refreshed and ready to take on the day.

One Simple Change: After brunch with your close girlfriends, and you don’t have much time to get ready for your date with your boyfriend. Luckily, you can transform this outfit into a date night by simply taking the scarf off and pulling your hair back into a sleek ponytail and swiping a deep red lipstick across your lips. This elegant simple look will make you look casually-chic.
