Based on Sunday morning wait times, it's safe to say that Chicagoans love their brunch. While we completely embrace the laid-back feeling the weekend affords (you paid your dues Monday through Friday, after all), there's no reason you should completely let your style slip just because you're out of the office — or not out on the town.
Today, we're helping you through the morning haze with an effortless outfit perfect for brunch at Tavernita, the popular River North restaurant that always feels like a fiesta. This look is a cool and casual version of the glam and sharp style you'd sport on Saturday night. A simple J.Crew shirtdress (which you can carry into your fall wardrobe) and bold accessories will put a little punch into your normal brunch routine. It's simple with a bit of spice — just the way we like our Bloody Marys.
J.Crew Stretch Cotton Shirt Dress, $158, available at J.Crew; Coach Leather Hinged Bangle, $98, available at Coach; Stella McCartney Faux Leather and Wooden Platform Sandals, $895, available at Saks Fifth Avenue; Tarte Lush Lip Tint, $24, available at Sephora; Coach Legacy Leather Medium Candace Carryall, $398, available at Coach.
