What To Wear | Summer Brunch

Hello and happy Tuesday, friends! I’m back on the blog today to share a little about my weekend! I was super busy attending a wedding and all of the events that coincided with it, so I didn’t have much time to take blog photos. But, I’m so, so excited for what is to come with the blog — more on that soon!

Today, I wanted to talk about something that I get asked often.

“What should I wear to (insert event)?”

We’ve all had at least one event within the past year where we probably had no clue what we were supposed to wear because a dress code wasn’t specified. Oftentimes, I just choose to be extra and wear something more on the dressed up side of the style spectrum, but sometimes that’s not always what needs to be done!

I was going to a brunch the day after the wedding I was at this past weekend, and none of the people I was going with had any idea what to wear! We had dressed semi-formal for the cocktail party, formal for the wedding, and then had no clue what to do for the brunch! It was being held at a very nice restaurant downtown, so I didn’t want to look too casual in jeans, but I also didn’t want to be the most dressed up person in the room. I wasn’t trying to show anyone up!


When I packed for this trip, I only brought dresses and some other random items that I wanted to bring back, so my options for what to wear to brunch were pretty limited. I had decided the day before that I was going to clean out my closet of things I didn’t want anymore, so after I made those piles, I really didn’t have much to choose from. Luckily, I packed this Levi’s two-toned denim skirt and immediately knew it would be perfect for this event!


I love this denim skirt because it’s so easy to just throw on and go. I decided on the cropped army green button up because it’s super soft, and also provides a little warmth since I was flying back to South Carolina right after the brunch was over. Of course, I had to sport my platform Cole Haan sandals, which are the most comfortable shoes I own! I finished off the outfit with my zigzag bomber jacket and I was ready to go! This outfit was perfect for this event and I’m so glad I thought to wear it.


My best suggestion for what to wear to a post-wedding brunch?

Keep it casual, but classy. I would avoid jeans or tees, and opt more for skirts, light dresses, and flowy blouses. Think about what you would wear to a nice lunch with your grandparents. Whatever that would be, wear that! Although this wasn’t the most comfortable outfit for a flight, it was totally fine for the brunch.

After shoveling in a bunch of scrambled eggs and some fruit salad, I made my way to the airport to come back to South Carolina! On a side note, I know I had mentioned that big changes would be coming to the blog soon, and they still are! I’m keeping things under wraps as I figure stuff out, but I’m really excited for what’s to come!


Well, that’s all I have for ya on this awesome Tuesday! I’ll be back on the blog on Friday with another new post for ya! As always, thank you so much for reading and for following along on my adventures!

Until next time!
