As the week draws to an end I am day-dreaming about my weekend and what I’m going to do.  *le sigh*

One of my favorite things to do on the weekend is go out with friends for brunch!  Brunch in NYC is a big thing and most restaurants have some type of brunch special during the weekend (these specials usually include unlimited cocktails —- brings on the mimosas, champagne and bellinis!!!).

Brunch in NYC (especially when going to one of the “hot spots”) is kind of like a fashion show — everyone is dressed to impressed and everyone is checking out the next person to see what their wearing.

So, what does one wear to brunch???  It really all depends on your mood – some of us use our weekends to wear relaxed and comfortable clothing and some of us stay stylin’ from Friday night to Sunday night!! 🙂

If you are opting for something more comfortable and relaxed try wearing a maxi dress with flats and if you are trying to make a fashion statement break out the crop top and heels!

Below are a few “Brunch Idea” looks I’ve put together – hope you guys like them!

What’s your “go-to” outfit for weekend brunch??

As promised in my previous  post, here are a few Neon inspired looks for daytime, the office and going out on the town.

Most of these looks are very BOLD and take the neon trend head on (Go bold or go home!!! ;)) however keep in mind that if you want to incorporate neon in more of a subtle way you can use neon items to compliment your look (eg. belts, bags, shoes).

These looks incorporate two big trends for this Season: Neon & Colorblocking.

How do you plan on incorporating neon into your wardrobe??
