What to Wear to A Spring Brunch
Throwback to when I hosted a bridal brunch for my best friend Jess (pictured above in the middle). 🙂 A bridal brunch is the perfect occasion to wear a pretty spring cocktail dress. When you receive an invitation for a shower or special event, the invitation itself serves as a great indication as to the attire you should wear. Unless the invite says "black tie", for example, you can assume you should show up in dressy or dressy-casual. For something like a spring bridal shower, this suggests a knee-length cocktail dress or an elegant maxi dress. Though with the right print or accessories, you can totally pull of a short summer dress as well, like the floral dress pictured above. For a dressy casual look, you could also pair dress slacks with a blouse.
When I sent out elegant floral invitations with the heading "Brunch with the Bride", I was hoping to set the tone of the style, and these ladies really turned it out. Everyone looked amazing, with beautiful printed dresses, a gorgeous white lace dress, and so many amazing accessories. Pictured above are five looks from the brunch that really stood out for me, and coincidentally wound up being in this partial group shot.
1. Pretty In Pink - My favorite dress of the day was the adorable pink bow dress. I've posted dress guides on this particular shade of hot pink before, and they always receive a ton of traffic and feedback, so I know it isn't just my little obsession. It's such an easy way to add some instant femininity to a look, and it's so much more bold and fun than a pastel pink. It's the perfect look for a spring brunch.

2. Florals Are Always In - A floral-print dress is a fool-proof look for any spring event. I love how with floral, you can get away with a casual dress. The gal on the right wore a strapless hi-low floral dress, which already added to the look. When paired with an embellished hair band and dressy wedges, it was perfect for the shower. What's even better is she can pair it with flats for a casual summer look and get a lot of use out of it. Pictured: Jack Wills long summer dress // Zipper dress
4. Bright & Bold - Sometimes the best style is something a little unexpected - something bold. The bright orange shift dress was such a nice surprise. If you want to skip the pastels and spring prints and go with a solid-colored dress, try something in a beautiful eye-catching color, like one of these orange shift dresses.

5. Layer It With Leather - You don't have to show up in pink and bows and flowers just because you're attending a spring shower. My favorite look of all was a more boho-edgy look. The lady on the left wore a breezy striped maxi dress. This is another example of how to get away with a more casual dress at a spring event. Because it was strapless and long, her dress was elegant enough for the shower, yet I'm guessing she'll get a lot of wear out of it throughout summer as well. What I totally loved was her black leather moto jacket layered on top. For chilly spring days, it's the perfect way to add a little warmth...and edge to your look.
