AJ Wears :: Jeans and a white tee

 In the south, brunching is like a sport. Once the weather gets nice, my friends and I can be found on a patio on Saturday and Sunday mornings, sipping mimosas and gossiping over eggs benedict. Sometimes brunch lasts all day and turns into patio hopping (some of my favorite times). Anyway, on this particular brunch outing I couldn't be bothered with finding an outfit, so I went with the old standby for any girl - my most comfortable white tee with some fabulous jeans.

 Accessories optional. I added this chunky scarf because it was a little cool in the morning and I figured a bit of color wouldn't hurt. It's big enough that I could use it as a blanket later in the day should I slip into some post-breakfast coma.

Some of the gorgeous ladies I have the pleasure of sharing my brunch table with. 

....And this is what happens when you have an audience while you're taking blog photos. I can't remember what caused me to stop and point at whoever that was (I'm assuming they were making fun of me) but I can't share only the decent pictures, right? This blog is all about some awkward, and this is enough awkward for the whole week, I think. You're welcome.

What I Wore :: Seeing Stars

Over-the-knee boots before noon? Let's discuss. On the one hand, they're hard to wear without giving off that fresh hooker vibe (we can thank Pretty Woman for that). On the other hand, something about an extra tall boot over bright tights makes me feel like a fashion super hero.

 I blame Devil Wears Prada for making me fall for over-the-knee boots. That scene where Anne Hathaway goes from mild to wild is so clutch. The thigh high boot is not for the faint of heart - Expect weird looks. Possible whispers. Even a little seriously misplaced disapproval. But hold your head high, jaywalk through traffic, and pretend like you're just visiting town from NYC. That's what Beyonce would do (WWBD? LIVE IT).

Today's ensemble went to Target, followed by brunch at The House (my personal favorite brunch in LR). Never be afraid to rock a bold outfit for a seemingly normal day. It makes things a little more interesting. And if all else fails, just save the boots for Halloween. But what a shame that would be.

PS - when choosing an over-the-knee boot, there are a slew of options to consider. Black is safest, suede is much more tame than leather. Flat invites less looks than heels. And a little bit of slouch can actually make the boot look less trashy, in my opinion. And for the love of all that is good and holy, don't go for anything with a major platform. Even the Spice Girls would not approve.

What I Wore :: Bachelorette Brunch

As you may have noticed if you've been reading this blog for a while, my friends and I love some brunch. There is nothing more wonderful than a patio, some wonderful weather, and some eggs benedict (I'm a little bit of a self-professed eggs benny expert).

Sunday Morning brunch attire can be dressy or casual, but it must always be fabulous. I chose these red Zara skinnies and a peplum top because we'd be traveling later. The jeans are stretchy in the most delightful way and the top is made of t-shirt material so it's all very comfortable while still looking sharp. Sneaky, right?

I also got the chance to wear these delicate sandals from Sole Society (I've been ordering a LOT from them lately! I got addicted!). They're actually quite comfortable and I can't wait to wear them over and over again.

Filet Mignon Eggs Benedict! Are you kidding me?? These were amazing!

The gals (Taryn manning the camera, thanks boo). Everyone was required to take a shot any time someone talked about how amazing the weather. Just kidding, we would have died. It was a perfect day and a wonderful end to a wonderful weekend.
