Style | Summer Brunch OOTD



Oh Summer! The season of outdoor brunches! A few Philly Style Bloggers and I met up for brunch at Butcher Bar (AMAZING food — Julia Dent captured my love for sweet potato fries in this photo :P). We each styled a different summer brunch OOTD.

The theme for my “how to dress for hot weather” is described as effortless and airy. My go-to summer brunch OOTD falls in that theme because we’re having a heat wave.

I’m a big fan of wearing what you want and comfort. Free People really understands my love affair for all dresses that don’t touch my skin for incredibly humid days. Almost any dress that’s cute and airy will make it into my summer wardrobe.



Shop It: Free People Painted Stripe Mini Dress

This dress is super colorful, but has muted pastel tones. I think if these stripes were brighter, there would be color overload. I like this color scheme because of the earthy and airy tones. The stripes look like they’re painted on so effortlessly.

Style Tip

Don’t feel the need to accessorize! Since this Free People dress is very colorful, I don’t want to add anything extra to the outfit. The dress itself is just sooo pretty!

When it comes to dressing for humid days, I’m all about simplicity — no heavy accessories and minimal makeup (to avoid cakey, melty, and sticky skin). However, if I wanted to choose jewelry for this dress, I’d go with small studded earrings.

The dress has hidden pockets — always a major plus, right? The sides of the dress go deep, which adds some flair and more airy-ness.

I wore this dress with my favorite pair of block heels (similar). They’re super retro and remind me of the ’70s. Obsessed!!

What’s your go-to outfit during a heat wave?
