Blonde vs. Brunette – Brunch

Blonde vs. Brunette

Every Friday, we are going to do a fashion challenge.  In these challenges, we will go to an affordable clothing store and pick out outfits.  Each will highlight our personal style and fashion personality.  We will include the store name and prices.  We chose to visit a store instead of using our closet because so many times we have seen outfits and wished we could recreate them only to find out they were purchased years ago.

The first month our challenges will just be to pick out an outfit for a specific event.  This week we are shopping for our weekend brunch with the girls.

Leather strap sandals – $22.99

I love a light sweater with shorts; especially when going out to eat.  You never know if it is going to be hot or cold in a restaurant.  The sandals are strappy and neutral adding uniqueness without overtaking the outfit.  I really like to keep my jewelry simple; so, I would add an oversized watch, some simple studs, and sunglasses (just in case you eat outside).

Alex’s Pick – THE BRUNETTE

Skull Sweater – $22.99

White skinny jeans – $27.99

Sneaker wedges – $34.99

When I think going out to brunch, I think: Bloody Marys, cute outfit, and sunshine.  Brunch allows you to really wear whatever you want.  There’s really no unwritten fashion rules when it comes to brunch.  You can dress it up with a simple maxi dress and wedges, or if you’re like me, go for an edgier, casual look.  To contract the skull sweater, I’d wear a simple top knot, a thin gold watch, and simple studs.  PS. I am loving the monochromatic look right now–it makes even an edgy outfit, look chic.
