You know those moments when you just can’t help but smile? Like when you snag that perfect find at our Phoenix or San Diego consignment store or when you score that amazing promotion you’ve been eyeing for months. Or, even better, when you find yourself sipping a free drink courtesy of that thighs-abs-shoulders-pecs situation across the bar.
And then, of course, there’s our all-time favorite: Sunday brunch with the crew. We love everything about brunch - mimosas, gossiping, napping through our afternoon plans, and looking absolutely fierce on an afternoon we’d otherwise spend running errands.
But after an exhausting Monday through Friday, after a way-too-fun Saturday night out (Advil and oversized sunnies, a must), sometimes the last thing you want to have to do on a Sunday morning is root through a closet full of couture clothes looking for the perfect ensemble.
Our solution? Master the mimosa chic look (with help from our fashion-forward Phoenix and San Diego consignment pros, of course) long before you’re getting ready to hit the eggs benny, and day-of styling will be a cinch. Here are three helpful My Sister’s Closet tips for picking the perfect brunch outfit:
- Cute and comfy? Yes, you can: Just because you’re aiming for effortlessly flawless doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to comfort and say hello to “I hope they have someone to carry me out of this restaurant because I’m too full to handle these Michael Kors skinny jeans.” Sure, Sunday brunch means glamour and Instragramming, but it is possible to combine cute and comfy. Stay away from skintight and stilettos and focus on A-line sundresses, super soft sweaters, and adorable flats. Dress up the look with an oversized designer bag and huge sunglasses.
- Sunny side up: Forget about that little black dress and rock a splash of color! There’s no better brunch staple than bright colors and bold prints (well, except for bottomless sangria, of course). Looking for inspiration? Stun in our bright red floral Alice and Olivia or turn heads in this gorgeous Kate Spade orange print strapless dress.
- Max out: Only ten minutes to get ready and still at a loss? Never forget the two brunch time M’s: mimosas and maxis. Sexy, slimming, easy, and comfortable, maxi dresses are a girl’s best friend. Accessorize with a show stealing necklace, a stunning watch, and of course, your favorite new bag.
So the next time you’re wondering what to rock at Sunday brunch, just drop by one of our Phoenix or San Diego consignment stores. Trust us: you’ll be ready for a morning of mimos, French toast, and Saturday night dishing in no time.
