what to wear to boozy brunch this summer


I really want to know, what’s your go-to brunch order? I always go into the restaurant swearing I’ll get something different, something sweet but almost always without fail, I get Eggs Benedict! The only thing that changes is the drink and the sides. Maybe potatoes, maybe grits, maybe a little frisée salad. Orange juice, mimosa, bellini, French Kiss, green juice. Whether you’re getting shrimp + grits and a Bloody Mary or buttermilk pancakes and an Irish Coffee, here’s five looks to wear to brunch this summer.

I’m loving this shade of buttercream yellow lately and feel like it’s the perfect brunch color. Pair a pastel maxi dress like this one from Self Portrait with a pair of dressy sandals, matching bag, and California-chic sunglasses.

For a look that sits somewhere right in between casual and dressy, pair a feminine blouse with distressed jean shorts, a pair of espadrilles, and a structured statement bag.

When it’s too hot to put on real clothes, try this look which is as close to pajamas as you can get with a white tank top, wide leg pants in a cute color or print, a leather bucket bag, and matching sunglasses to pull the look together.

This look works really well for a city brunch but has a little bit of beachy flair for the summer. Pair a feminine, ruffled blouse with straight leg jeans, some classic statement flats, and a textured tote bag.

This look is super easy and can be pulled together with very little thought, so you can roll out of bed and straight to brunch. Wear your favorite worn-in white tee with a peasant skirt, then style with a basket bag, easy white sneakers, and gold jewelry.
