Sequins and Sea Breezes: Brunchin' It

Brunchin' It

2/17/2015


I have what one could only call an unhealthy obsession with brunch. While we're at it we might as well through brinner in there as well. I just love breakfast foods in general. Probably because I don't usually eat a big fancy breakfast so when I do get breakfast foods I like to go all out. Bring on the bacon, the biscuits and gravy, the waffles with powdered sugar and of course maple syrup... yup, I want it all.


So of course when I finally do make it out to brunch I need to be as comfy as possible because let's face it, I'm guaranteed to eat myself sick (and I have no shame, I'm perfectly ok with that). Maxi dresses are definitely one of my favorite things to wear out brunching. I love this maxi because the pattern is distracting enough where you don't notice the little extra food belly and since it's still a bit chilly outside it's perfect for layering! And yes, I of course rocked the "blogger hat" because honestly, I love wearing fun hats like this any chance I get! I kept it casual with my favorite Tory Burch sandals since I definitely don't need to be teetering around in heels after copious amounts of amazing food. Do you have a favorite brunch outfit?

  1. Love those sandals!! You look so casual chic, it's a perfect outfit for brunch. I'm with you, I have an obsession with all things brunch especially being from NC. I miss it all the time here in London, it's just not the same. There's nothing better than throwing on a cute dress with sandals and meeting your girlfriends :)

  6. I love every single aspect of this outfit! Leopard is my favorite print to rock, that necklace is such a great length to dress up sweaters, and the Hamilton bag has been on my covet list forever. Brunch is such a fun meal! I don't brunch near as often as I should now that I am thinking about it. Perhaps that needs to happen soon!
