It’s time to ditch the backpacks and essays and embrace swimsuits and sunshine, because it’s summertime! Without the crazy amounts of homework to do or finals to prep for, there is finally more time to do the things we really want to do: sleep in late and roll up to a delicious brunch. Who doesn’t love berry pancakes and bacon (my go-to order) with a group of stylish friends? This Fashionista has nailed the perfect nautical look that makes any brunch just a little more summery!

This sassy Fashionista kicks off her look with a navy and white striped dress. Just because it’s summer doesn’t necessarily mean that sleeves are a no-no – the sleeves on this dress keeps the outfit looking relaxed and preppy, perfect for a mid-morning brunch! To dress up the look, she pairs the dress with neutral and gold accessories. The tan Coach purse is a summertime essential, perfect for keeping your cellphone and sunscreen right by your side. It also pairs well with her other accessories, thanks to the gold detailing. Her gold watch and pearl earrings really add to her preppy look and her preppy, wayfarer sunglasses give her that effortless, beach goddess vibe. To add to this, she rocks these rad gold sandals. These shoes are amazing and really add to her stylish nautical look with the embellishments. Finally, to keep her look effortless and chill, she rocks her long hair in a loose side braid and fresh-faced makeup. This Fashionista is ready for to take on summer (and a tasty brunch)!

One Simple Change: If you’re heading to a fancier breakfast joint and want to dress up this look, try rocking a pair of wedges. Wedges are a great way to “step-up” any summertime look!
