Spring Brunch Outfit Ideas

One of my favourite pastimes during the Spring season is brunching! I love that it’s basically a breakfast date that lets you sleep in AND gives you a reason to dress cute ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s perfect for my schedule because I wake up early Monday to Friday and on Saturdays I get to sleep in a bit and make plans! So in honour of brunching here are a few cute and casual outfit ideas.

#1 Flowy Midi Skirt and Sweater

This is a trend we’ve been seeing quite a bit this season and I’m obsessed with it!! It’s the perfect combo for spring weather and even better for bloated tummies at brunch ๐Ÿ˜‰ Pair this combo with sneakers or sandals and you’re good to go! H&M has some great flowy skirts right now and they always have basic sweaters that pair well. It’s my favourite place to shop at the moment!

#2 Mom Jeans and a Blouse

Another semi-casual but “nice enough for brunch” look, but also one of my personal favourites. You can never go wrong with basics right? I’ve started to realize that when I’m shopping nowadays I really only pick pieces that I know for a fact I’m going to wear multiple times and with many different outfits. Mom jeans are an essential and a white button up blouse is too! Slip on sandals or loafers look great with this look ๐Ÿ™‚

#3 Trousers and an Oversized Sweater

Have you noticed the trend yet? Every outfit has some aspect of oversized or flowy-ness because we all know that brunching gets us bloated AF! Cigarette trousers and an oversized sweater are better for a more casual brunch, maybe at your local cafe, but nevertheless look amazing with a good handbag, pair of sunnies and flats or loafers!

#4 Sundresses

This is one closet item that I have yet to shop for this season because like I said above, I’m looking for pieces that I’ll wear multiple times and the floral dresses just aren’t it for me. I’m the type to wear a floral piece once or twice but then let it sit in my closet for months afterwards, so getting neutral coloured dresses is really important to me! However the floral trend going on right now is gorgeous and pairs really beautifully with sandals or mules. You could even get away with mid-calf boots!

#5 Matching Suit with White Sneakers

I’ve always wanted a matching colourful suit, maybe baby pink or blue because it pairs so nicely with a white t-shirt and white sneakers! It can be worn formally or casually and ย really gives off that “put together” vibe.

Which outfit idea is your fave?!

Best Givenchy Antigona Dupe

Oh yes, we have hit the jackpot! I’ve searched high and low for a dupe of the luxe bag… Givenchy Antigona in black…and found it on Fashion Drug!

The retail of the actual designer bag (medium sized) is around $3300CA but this dupe goes for $135CA!! How amazing is that!

Givenchy Antigona Black – Medium

Although there is no “Givenchy” label on the dupe everything else looks the same and better. The non-removable and non-adjustable strap that’s attached to the real bag is actually adjustable AND removable on the Fashion Drug version. Making it a much more convenient bag, imo.

Not So Boring Black – Fashion Drug

Another great thing about the dupe is that it’s offered in two sizes. One is big enough to be a diaper bag (for all you Mamas out there), and the other is mini and perfect for a few day-to-day items.

DIY Pearl Cuffs

As I was shopping one day in Zara I came across a really pretty oversized white dress shirt with pearl embroidered cuffs, so I tried it on. Unfortunately the shirt wasn’t very flattering on so I had to let it go, however I knew that it would be an easy DIY project for home so I stopped at the craft store, picked up some pearls, and recreated it!

Supplies You Will Need

  • thin white thread
  • needle
  • medium and large sized pearl beads; I used around 20 total for each cuff

Instructions

  1. Choose how far apart you want your pearls. I placed mine about an inch apart from each other and half an inch from the edges of the cuffs.
  2. Starting from the inside of the cuff, thread through to the outside.
  3. Insert the needle into the pearl.
  4. Align the pearl so that the holes are facing sideways and not up and down. They should not be seen.
  5. Thread back through to the inside of the cuff and repeat one more time.
  6. Tie off the thread on the inside of the cuff.
  7. Repeat for each pearl!
