L.A. girls seem to be skilled at almost everything these days, from blogging to launching startups to throwing really great Sunday brunches. And why wouldn’t they, when sunny Los Angeles has great weather year-round? It’s the perfect way to enjoy the natural beauty of the city, and it’s also a fun excuse to get friends and family in one place for an Instagram moment that is bound to go viral.
So how do they do it? By making it look effortless on all fronts. The L.A. woman is much like the Michael Kors woman: chic, on-point, and always refined. This sensibility carries over into the way she brunches, whether she's attending or hosting.

For your guests to have the full L.A. brunch experience, it’s essential to plan ahead and keep stress at bay. Let your guests know when to arrive, and work backward from there. Are they coming at 11 a.m.? Be prepared to have your tablescape set up around 10 a.m. If you set up too early, you run the risk of dirty plates. Set up too late, and you’ll be rushing around when they begin to arrive!
Keep in mind that you’ll be running all over the place, and you'll probably need to roam around to make sure you’ve given ample attention to all of your guests. A pair of stylish flats will do the trick.
Invited to a brunch and tired of taking the same hostess gift? A bouquet of flowers is always a good bet, so run to the farmers’ market, put a bouquet in your tote, and head to brunch!
It’s L.A., so it’s a given that the sun will be out (and bright). So while it’s key to look stylish for all the Snaps and Instagrams that will inevitably be going up, you’ll also want to make sure you’re comfortable. Opt for a lightweight pair of sunglasses so you can stay focused on the festivities.
