STYLE: Sunday Brunch in Red, Grey and Blue

A few weekends ago, E and I met up with Ilona from Small Wallet-Trendy Closet, and her husband, Boris, of Bora Images, for brunch at Raymond’s in Montclair, New Jersey.  Ilona had been raving about Raymond’s and said we HAD to go. We decided to take a few photos before diving into brunch. We didn’t want to take the chance that we might spill food on ourselves during our meal! Don’t worry, a post with ALL of the food pictures is coming soon.

It was our first real fall day. The air was crisp and it was a little chilly. I was happy to be wearing long sleeves! I had just received the most comfortable dress in the mail from Make Me Chic. I knew it would be perfect for brunch! Make Me Chic has cute dresses for every season. In the summer I wore this cute striped number. I was looking for a cute dress for fall, to wear with booties and I found this navy lace up dress. The material is thick and warm. Perfect for fall! And it is ONLY $13.90! Isn’t it so cute??

I paired the dress with a necklace and earrings from Rocksbox, an online jewelry rental service. Keeping up with jewelry trends can get expensive! Rocksbox makes it easy and affordable to wear the latest designs! Based on your preferences, they will send you three pieces of jewelry each month. You pay $19 each month and can keep the jewelry for as long as you want. Once you are done with it, send it back, and they will send you three new pieces! Use the code WHATSFORDINNERESQXOXO to get your first month free! You will also get a $10 Shine Credit to spend on jewelry you might want to keep from your monthly Rocksbox! They sent me this beautiful lapis pendant and a pair of lapis bar studs. I wish I had used my Shine Credit to keep them!

Every great outfit needs a cute bag and great shoes. Ever since receiving my GiGi NY cross body, I had been DYING to wear it out! This seemed like the perfect opportunity. I love pairing red and navy together. To tie everything together, and bring my outfit up a notch, I added these grey booties. They were comfortable and make my legs look hot! Well, at least E thought so…
