Brunching in the 6ix
We ladies love to get together to catch up on the ups and downs of our lives over a delicious meal. Join us as we discuss our fave casual looks for brunching in the 6ix!
I just love getting together with the girls over a delicious meal – what could be better!
For my brunch look I went with the so called “Canadian Tuxedo”. LOL Denim on denim was a definite no no for me, but I broke that all up by adding this faux fur vest.
These skinny jeans are the bomb.com. Now I know finding great fitting jeans or pants, for that matter, can be a difficult task. When looking for the best fitting jeans, I always try to fit the largest part of my body first. Yes, often times that means that the waist is too big for me but I just traipse on over to my neighbourhood tailor to have them altered and I’m good to go.
Next came the shoes. I went for my trusty wedge booties. Last but not least was this blushed coloured purse by Rebecca Minkoff! I love this purse because it can be worn cross body or as a regular shoulder bag. Now my “Canadian Tuxedo” look is complete. Yo, somebody get me a mimosa!

As you not doubt all know by now, we absolutely love to eat! Any excuse to go out for a good meal is a good excuse for us to get together and hang out. But of course, we like to do it in style! My brunch look was all about stylish comfort.
We’ve been lucky in the 6ix this winter and have not been hit too hard with the winter chill. So I tossed aside my winter parka for a cute punch of colour in the form of this coat.
The rest of my look was subdued elegance. I went for a very neutral colour palette, donning a simple sleeveless oatmeal coloured funnel neck sweater and faux leather leggings.
To round out my outfit, I stepped into my leopard print pumps, threw all my “necessities” into my trusty LV bag and I was ready for my mimosa and some bacony goodness (sorry to my vegetarians out there. I just love my bacon!:-)
One thing I love is getting together with my girls for brunch! We talk, we laugh, and most importantly we eat. For this post I will highlight what I wear for a typical casual brunch with the ladies. For this look I decided to wear a comfortable outfit that transitions well from brunching to running errands in the 6ix.
I chose to wear a nice blue, camel and black sweater that I scored at H&M which pairs beautifully with my camel “Olivia Pope” inspired coat.
I wore my favorite pair of jeans which are my “Second Yoga Skin” jeans. These jeans are perfect for curvy girls like me as they fit like a glove and they do not cause the gaping at the back of the waist – hallelujah!
To complete my daytime look I jazzed it up with my grey ankle booties I got from BCBG a long time ago. The price was so good that I got the black ones as well. I don’t regret these two purchases at all cause ‘til this day I rock them and they still look like new!
Awww … the struggle of having big feet makes you appreciate it all the more when you find fantastic shoes, and when you have them you treat them like precious gems!
The finishing touches for my look were my camel coat and this cute camel and brown coloured leather clutch, and now I’m ready to start my day.
Brunching is one of those essential parts of life!! That’s when we leave our phones, social media and worries at the door and just focus on connecting. This time, we chose to check out a really laid back spot so I kept my look casual cute.
Most weekends, you’ll catch me wearing jeans. They are comfy, fit for all kinds of occasions and are just a must have for my lifestyle. Because I wanted my look to have a little edge, I decided to go with these ripped jeans (which I distressed myself btw!).
I paired my jeans with a high low sleeveless turtleneck and my trustly leather jacket to keep the chill at bay. Tall girl story about this jacket: it was a gift (from my now hubby) and I loved the jacket BUT the sleeves were too short… Shocking. So to fix that, we took it to a leather goods store and they were able to find leather that matched perfectly to lengthen my jacket! When I tell you that we have to be creative! Finally, because I don’t feel good until I have a pop of color, I finished my look with these hot pink pumps.
Now pass the mimosas… minus the OJ LOL
Tah Tah for now,
The Fab Four
