Downtown Brunching

Jacket: Alexander Wang
Shirt: Audrey 3+1
Jeans: Blank NYC
Boots: Rag & Bone
Beanie & Scarf: Club Monaco
Bag: Rebecca Taylor
Specs: Warby Parker
Bracelet: Stella & Dot

After a fun night celebrating my sister's birthday, Saturday morning Hubs and 
I headed downtown to our favorite brunch spot Bottega Louie to eat our faces off (see here and here). 
BL is epic on all levels. If your in L.A. it's a must. And don't even get me started on the salted caramel macaroons. A little round piece of heaven.
I finally started my holiday shopping this weekend....nothing like 
waiting until the last minute to get that shizz started! The mall was a complete
and utter crazy town (duh) but it was a successful trip. I'm proud to say I am 
halfway done! Oy.

 Am I the only one that put off the holiday shopping? Appease me.

That Alexander Wang jacket is fabulous! Your scarf looks really cozy as well too :) I realize I have a few extra little things I need to take care off for holiday shopping so you are definitely not the only who put it off!

Look who's a Cutie-McCuterson! Perfectly cozy and comfy weekend attire my sweet. AND brunch looks amazing!! I think it's my favourite meal of the day! I want to go too!

Oh, and as for the shopping, I've been a slow and steady shopper since the beginning of Dec. A must with the child in tow.
