Nothing says summer more than brunch on a gorgeous morning in the sun.

But what oh what are you going to wear?

That dress you’ve worn a thousand times?

Are you going to go bold and try to wear that outfit that’s been tucked back in your closet for forever because you are too nervous to actually wear it in public?

What exactly is the perfect summer brunch outfit?

Well, that’s why you are here. Whether you need some inspiration to switch things up or you are trying to step out of your comfort zone a little bit the perfect brunch outfit can transform your whole mood and have you cheering for more mimosas. Who doesn’t love a good brunch date with your girlfriends? And of course pictures are going to be taken and you all want to be looking the best you can be.

To me, the perfect summer brunch outfit is comfortable, fashionable and ready for anything in the case that morning brunch turns into an all-day event with your girlfriends. Which I mean, who hasn’t been there right? One minute you are sitting their brunching and then you are shopping then lunch than some time at the pool. But those are some of the best days out there.

Nothing is more perfect for a warm summer day than a comfortable t-shirt dress. Breezy, stylish and easy to accessorize with hats, headbands or even belts this versatile piece will have you looking your best for a fun brunch with your friends. This striped t-shirt dress is not only extremely comfortable but the lace up detail ads a little something extra. I love that lightweight material that not surprisingly feels like wearing an oversize t-shirt.

Planning on going to town on some delicious brunch you won’t have to worry about pants being uncomfortable or your food baby making an appearance as this dress is flowy and doesn’t cling to your body. No constricting wastes, buttons or anything that could possibly hinder your ability to eat as many eggs benedict and breakfast potatoes as your little heart desires.

I’ve always been more of a sandals girl but this dress would look equally as cute with booties, or wedges depending on your style. Get fancy, get comfy, get edgy however you wanna spice it up. These sandals are some of my favs because it almost feels like wearing flip flops, something my dad used to scold me for doing, but they are nicer and easier to walk in.  I love how comfortable they are and how easy they make going from the bunch to going to the grocery store or running other errands. 

Nothing is worse than walking out a restaurant after having a great morning than realizing you left your sunglasses or your phone on the table and having to hope its still there when you run back inside. That’s why having a great little bag is so important to make sure you can keep everything together and not have to risk being the embarrassing one who forgets things and makes the whole crew have to wait outside the restaurant.

No summer brunch outfit is complete without the perfect pair of sunnies. I am more of a classic Ray Bans type of girl but if you love wearing something a little bolder and fun, sunglasses can be a great way to add some pop and sizzle to an outfit full of basics like this one. If you are looking for some great ones that will fit a small head I have an entire list of great sunglasses for a small head that you can rock all summer long.

Grab this little black crossbody from Target and you’ll make sure your stuff is always by your side. Not only that but it’s a great fashion accessory that you can use again and again. It will never go out of style or feel like it doesn’t go perfectly with an outfit. Part of the perfect summer brunch outfit is being ready for anything that might come your way including random adventures and having a place to put all of your things when you are running around.

I keep the jewelry simple in the summer because it can get hot and be uncomfortable for me. Simple and beautiful, layering jewelry is a great way to add some sparkle and fun to your outfit. Delicate necklaces and rings give a fun feel to pieces of jewelry you have in your collection. Mix metals, mix textures and have fun showing how interesting an unique those layers can be.  For some great jewelry check out my post full of my favorite pieces you are sure to love.

A Summer brunch outfit, a summer day outfit. It’s an everything outfit that is comfortable and cute. Dresses are the perfect summer easy outfit because you don’t even have to worry about matching two pieces of clothing. People may say it looks more put together like you tried putting some effort into your summer brunch outfit but its easier than just about any other outfit you could throw together.

I hope you guys are having a great week and are ready for the weekend.
