Fab Faux Fur at The Penthouse at The Huntley Hotel

I am kind of obsessed with researching a place before I go to it - everything from the atmosphere, to the food, to the attire. While the restaurant's website is always an automatic go-to, I frequent on Instagram to the tagged section and see what other people have worn. It always gives me inspiration and it's a more realistic way of seeing the dress-code. You can just tell if it’s more casual, dressy, or somewhere in between.

 

The vibe at The Penthouse at The Huntley Hotel is dressy casual. Because the ambiance has such a luxe, mod feel, I made sure to dress accordingly…

 

I wore a fur vest, white long-sleeved crop top, black high-waisted jeans and 6-inch clunky leather boots (don’t judge the height – for a 5’1 girl like me, they are so clutch, even during the daytime). I would definitely recommend wearing some type of heel here.

 

While the beach might be in close proximity to The Penthouse, don’t let that fool you into thinking you should sport a cover-up and sandals to brunch. Embrace the ambiance and let it inspire your attire. I mean... It's The Penthouse. You can just tell by the name. You're going to have to postpone laying in your bathing suit at your usual cabana by the beach for the chic indoor cabanas here. (Although, cabanas by the beach don't sound too shabby...).
