Despite it being a dreary day, I still wanted to add a tad bit of color to my outfit for brunch with the girls. I opted for a fun vintage Americana crinkled skirt and paired it with my knit sleeveless vintage Guess top. I knew I’d be chilly (as there was a slight chill to the air and despite 60/70 degree weather, restaurants and shops always seem to crank up the A/C) so instead of the usual jacket option, I decided to grab my incredibly soft crochet shawl I bought at Ann Taylor when I worked there several years ago. Not wanting to put my feet through torture on the last day of the weekend, I chose to wear my vintage style low-heeled pump by Cobb Hill Shoes (New Balance’s stylish sister company) and my feet were comforted by the cushiony insoles. The boy and I even took a stroll in our neighborhood park and the shoes did really well on the uneven ground. I thought the shoes and the hat played a huge part of my “ladylike brunch” outfit.
