So I'm heading off to NYC next week and I'm really determined to have brunch whilst I'm there, just to feel like a cheesy American and try french toast. According to NY Eater, the above places are the top brunch spots in the city. Gotta admit, I wanna go to the bottom left one, just for that brick wall. Small things hey.
So what do we wear to brunch, I hear you ask. Well, these are the three options I came up with. Weather permitting these outfits would work. And hopefully it will permit and the sun will be cooperative.
Topshop Basic Neppy Tee, J Brand Distressed Jeans, ASOS Macaroon Shoes, 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Tote.
First up, the plain white t/denim combo. Never fails.
If your pennies stretch a long way, get a James Perse or T by Alexander Wang tee. Just so much better. Pair with distressed jeans so you don't look too polished. Not that I ever do. Brogues in white because we're all sick of tan. Pashli tote. Just because.
Topshop Pork Pie Hat, Melissa Odabash Striped Jersey Mini Dress, Zara Plaited Messenger Bag, ASOS Flossy T-Bar Sandals.
Second, the breton stripe/tan combo. See, we're loving a combo right here.
Wear the hat, just to make a point, plus it livens the outfit up a little. Melissa Odabash's striped mini dress is perfect, plus it's a dress so we don't have to wear jeans for once. And nothing goes with a breton stripe better than tan, so accessorise with said tan. Zara is the go to for these bags, and ASOS just so happen to have some pretty sandals in.
Topshop Plain Grill Jumper, T by Alexander Wang Jeans, ASOS Milan Shoes, Mulberry Oversized Satchel.
I don't know what combo this is...white jumper/black jean combo? Doesn't really work. Oh well. This one would be good for a slightly chillier day.
After seeing so many jumpers in the past month, and acknowledging that we're in the awkward weather phase between spring and summer, I got to thinking that this jumper would be a good option to just wear alone on colder days. Not completely alone, just without a jacket. Black jeans, oversized satchel and tan laser cut shoes to complete the look.
Happy Brunch! x
