Chicagoan how to: What to wear for Brunch

After an endless week at work comes the most anticipated . . . Brunch mornings. Here in Chicago, brunching is a must for many. It’s the best way to catch up with friends and family. I’d like to remind you that Chicago is globally known for it’s foodie establishments, and brunch is no less of a foodie endeavor. From ordering your usual French toast with bottomless mimosas to perfecting that Instagram worthy food picture, we live for this moment every week.

I will admit that after endless Bloodys and Champagne, catching up turns into gossip hour, but that doesn’t stop us from booking round two. Food might be the reason we WANT to go to Brunch, but putting together our ensemble may be the only thing that is actually getting us out the door. Because face it, making sure you aren’t wearing last season’s Tory Burch Bag is more important than deciding if you want your eggs done over easy. So here are our top five looks to keep you looking Brunchy every weekend.
