Every year, around the holidays, my mom and I do a spa day. We get massages and chat the day away while beautifying. It's heavenly. Something we look forward to all year.
Figured we could use some relaxing now more than ever so I booked us a spa getaway day. SO. MUCH. GIRLY.FUN!
After getting glowy, we headed to the Huntley for a late lunch. My mom had never been and she fell hard. Loved the stunning view and ultra modern decor.
We also highly recommend the piggie treats. Braised short rib tacos (!!!!) were my fave. The ceviche was hers.
And who doesn't love a delicious slider???
Decided to go full hog (only live once!) and introduce her to Yummy Cupcakes. We pretended to be horrified by the red velvet and peanut butter cupcakes we ordered. But really we weren't.
YAY for being a good planning monkey for this week's mommy day!
Forever 21 tank
Diane Von Furstenberg denim skirt
Stella McCartney bag
Stuart Weitzman sandals
Louis Vuitton earrings
This DVF skirt invariably makes me feel like a Harajuku girl. Hence the sassy young Japanese girl pose above ;)
Got it because I wanted a denim mini with a bit of flair. Something a little more fashion than function. Something I could conceivably wear to a football game or brunch. Cost about $40 on sale. DVF+Denim=Adore!
But I actually built the outfit around this silk Gucci scarf. A a friend of my mom's gave it to me last year. Love the very "in" berry pallette. And the luxe old lady print. Very "I own horses and summer in the Hamptons."
Must admit Miss Katie was again my inspiration.
She's been rocking preppylicious scarves all summer.
How to tie it was the conundrum. That's always the conundrum for me with silk scarves. I need a Gossip Girl to give me a tutorial STAT.
Ended up doing a kind of improvised sailor knot. What do you think?
Saw a similar getup on KiKi after the fact. Think I definitely wore my denim skirt, scarf and sandal combo WAAAAAAAY better. When do I get to kiss on Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise?? Sigh.
p.s. Do you love that my mom and I matched again? And that her oufit is USC perfection? AND that she independently made the exact face I did when Mr. D took the full outfit pic?? I do, I do, I do :)
