Summer 2014 Style Inspiration: What to Wear On a Brunch Date at the Farmers Market

As I’ve spent the majority of the week bundled up in bed, nursing a summer cold, I have somehow managed to muster up the strength to pluck a few pieces for today’s What to Wear request.

Nokuxola writes, “Help Claire!! You are my fashion Godmother and I could use some help for a first date outfit idea. The date involves going to the farmers market for brunch and gallery browsing so some walking will be involved.”

A trip to your local farmers market usually calls for a more relaxed style aesthetic, but being that this is your first date, you’ve got to mix it up a bit. Chic up your casual look with embroidered accents and punchy prints fit for a day of organic treats and gallery viewings.

First up, slip into a porcelain print box pleat midi skirt (or a wide leg boho pant for you curvy girls) paired with a white racer front crop top and a pair of slide sandals.

I love the versatility of a jumpsuit. The perfect jumpsuit can take you from brunch to cocktails with the help of just a few accessories.

Stay comfy in a pair of nude flat sandals and beat the heat in a stylish panama hat.

And for your final style suggestion, opt for a pair of embroidered cotton shorts, a J.Crew embroidered pom pom tank, and Mia Livi gladiator sandals to create a Boho chic look.

And that’ll do it for me today. Hope you have a fabulous time on your date!
Until next week, ladies.
