What I Wore | Saturday Morning Coffee

WEARING Madewell dresssunglasses, and necklace | C. Wonder boots | Rebecca Minkoff purse
My go-to look for Saturday morning brunch with friends is a dress and ankle boots, usually with a hat or fun accessory to mix things up, especially when said brunch is in the très trendy Arts District in downtown Los Angeles (aka where Jess & Co. live in New Girl).

I haven't had the chance to wear this Madewell dress that I got for Christmas much, so this was the perfect opportunity! However, for some reason I was feeling a bit frumpy once I put it on, not feeling the flowy shift shape. Some people would give up then and there and try to wear something else, but being the styling genius that I am (I know, so humble) I wrapped a skinny gold belt around my waist and pulled the dress up over the belt a bit to make it appear shorter and give my waist some definition. Voila! The dress is transformed, and so am I! The longer hemline is perfect for if I want to wear this dress to work or a more formal event, but a simple belt can make it a fun and flirty mini dress! It just goes to show you, never underestimate the power of accessories.

Also, thank goodness I didn't belt it too tightly because between the giant mocha (see picture below for proof of giantness) and a poached eggs and smoked salmon dish, I was stuffed! TY, Urth Caffé, you never disappoint!

    1. Thanks, Ellese! Those sunglasses are my favorite, they go with everything but they're a funky shape that you don't always see.

    1. Thanks, Pia! Yeah, it's a relatively simple necklace but it makes any outfit next-level amazing. And me too, plaid and stripes, can't have enough of either!
