WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

You just got out of school for the summer, you’re feeling good, ready to take on a morning (or early afternoon) for once and you’ve got the munchies. So what are you going to do? Brunch it! Brunch is a wonderful thing that everyone should do to catch up with friends that they haven’t gotten the time to see in a while since they’ve been busy at college (Kind of trying to live vicariously through Carrie Bradshaw in Sex in the City, but why not?!). Of course before you go to brunch, you have to find the perfect outfit to express the new, grown-up you! Here’s an idea for a brunch outfit that just might be perfect for you, styled by a fellow Fashionista.

Photographing this Fashionista in Bryant Park, Manhattan was a no-brainer amongst the crowd as she perfected the effortless weekend wear outfit. She did so by pairing a white linen shirt with distressed cropped jeans and accessorized with gold aviators and a kate spade shoulder bag. Her choice of a white linen shirt was perfect for the sunny weather because it is lightweight, yet it is a classic look and easy to throw on for brunch. In fact, any pastel colored linen shirt would have looked great as well. Furthermore, her distressed, cropped jeans give off a relaxed vibe, dressing down the linen shirt for a weekend look. Before this Fashionista walked out the door, she made sure to bring her gold aviator sunnies along as well to complete her urban-chic look and to avoid the sun’s glare, of course. In addition, her cream-colored shoulder bag is a beautiful, classic look that ever so slightly refines the entire look. This Fashionista wasn’t finished crafting her look at the bag, though, as she took it up a notch with fresh beach waves and a bright pink lipstick that immediately catches the eye. This Fashionista looks fresh and ready to start her day. You go girl!

One Simple Change: One could easily wear the white linen top to an interview tucked into a detailed A-line skirt. It is cute, comfy (just the way we all like it), flouncy feminine, conservative and, of course, professional looking.
