Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch eaten usually during the late morning to early afternoon, generally served from 11 am up to 3pm.  The word is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch Brunch originated in England in the late 19th century and became popular in the United States in the 1930s.

For me it’s a reason to dress up,  eat well and slip champagne with my girls.  Dressing well while having the goal of eating and drinking can be a little hard when it’s not a dinner event.  Daytime fashion can have you thinking am I overdressed?   Am I underdressed?
Well here’s my example of dressed up causal.   The top is trending while the distress look.  The skirt is encircled with knife pleats, an effortless midi skirt fashioned from blush-colored lamĂ© gleams with molten shine and is available up to size 3x or 24w.  In this Rachel Roy Pleat LamĂ© Skirt I’m wearing a size 2X.   I could have gotten a 1X.  It’s not to big because of the hidden zipping detailing.  I added a patent leather belt, neutral metallic shoe and a fun bag.  I’m ready for the required snapchat photoshoot or shopping after brunch.
