It’s a beautiful day in Manhattan and today I went out and did what most New Yorkers do on Sunday afternoon. I went to brunch. While I know this is a topic I’ve already discussed in some detail I have a few new things to add.
Going to brunch is an occasion (life is an occasion isn’t it?) and that means it’s time to get dressed up. Pick comfortable clothing that you won’t feel embarrassed to be seen in. I tend to run into someone the minute I’m not put together.
Another way you can tie a look together is tossing on a hat. It’s one of my favourite ways to get dressed up fast.
*Brunch tip- when you finally pick a place to go to brunch, pay attention to what everyone else is ordering. If you see a common plate that most people are getting, order it too! It’s popular for a reason.
I discovered this past weekend that New Yorkers like brunch. A lot. So much so, that many people that live in New York City take the time to prep where they are going to go, make reservations and go as far as to plan every food they order. Growing up, brunch was more reserved for Easter and Christmas. As I got older and hit the legal age to order alcohol, brunch became a way to have champagne in the afternoon. Here in New York, brunch seems to be a normal part of weekend life, as opposed to just be reserved for very special occasions.
I knew that I would be going to mass after said brunch but I wanted to keep my outfit from looking overly conservative, I wore my vintage Dior suit jacket over a crop top. This way I could have the best of both worlds, I simply just buttoned the blazer up to go to church!
Here’s a picture of the cathedral where I attend mass. St. Patricks on 5th ave.
