Sunday brunch with my girlfriends is probably my favorite excuse to dress up. We typically head to Toast, a local favorite that's a short walk from my apartment. There's no dress code for brunching, but sometimes a fun dress, sandals, and a bright bag can make indulging with friends feel more like a special occasion. Toss in a few bottomless mimosas in there, and I'm happy as a clam.
I love how this striped dress has a shift silhouette so that I can chow down on as many pancakes as I want and none will be the wiser. But the leather pockets are particularly special and keep the dress from looking like your usual striped frock. I picked a pair of studded sandals to echo the nude patches, and for a dose of contrast, the bright red bag seals the deal.
