This past Saturday, NOLA Fashion Council held a brunch at Tivoli & Lee at The Hotel Modern to benefit NOLA Fashion Week. I, of course had work (yay retail!), but was able to take a long lunch and make it toward the end of the brunch.
I planned my outfit ahead, knowing It would need to be work appropriate, but allow a few quick changes for brunch. Leopard is a neutral right? I asked myself this when I decided that I didn’t want to wear the black purse I had originally planned with this outfit. All neutral?? Snooze fest. At least not when brunching amongst so many other style mavens. For work, I had on an oversized black sleeveless blazer (yes, also know as a vest) … it just sounds more work appropriate that way, and added the leopard top and plaid clutch for brunch.
I ended up getting to the brunch toward the end because I forgot my camera and phone at home as I rushed out the door for work that morning (it was the last minute purse swap that had me all frazzled!), so I didn’t get to take pics with anyone, but made sure to get a few (rushed) outfit pics before heading back to work!
And thanks to my friend and coworker Jonet, for brunching with me and being my photographer!
