The rules are quite simple; be bold, be bright and be absolutely beautiful. Because you are. This is brunch with the ex. Not just any old ex, the EX. You know the one, every girl has that one crazy ex-boyfriend who left her high and dry, it could be your first love, your high school sweetheart or the summer romance…the one that left you wondering, what if? And then one day you meet him and his girlfriend and unfortunately for you, you’re not looking your best…I mean sweats and UGGs are cute on rainy day indoors but Sod’s law, dress down Friday is your undoing. You deserve a do over. No? Yes you do. And this is where we remix the cliché; don’t be obvious but stand out. That bright mustard blouse is just right, be bold in prints with a skirt to the knees and a dainty clutch in sweetheart pink, works a look that’s cool not keen. Break up the colour party with black accessories, your shoes should be a class act not Louboutins but Wang sandals. Let your hair down or up in a sock bun, strike a balance so demure meets cute. You know what I mean? And the sunnies are battle armour, they give you that much needed sass. This is your playground now, so own the damn thing.
