Mother’s Day Weekend


What did you guys do to celebrate Mother’s Day? My mom came down to visit her mom and sister and at the last minute I got the weekend off work so everything we did felt deliciously spontaneous.

Dry Bar

Friday afternoon I took my mom and Grandma for blow outs at Dry Bar!


Son of a Gun

Then we joined the 5:50pm queue outside of Son of a Gun restaurant to get a seat at the communal table. We had an excellent meal, this is a great restaurant to take LA visitors.


Jackie dress

My Grandma bought me a pink and white boucle Jackie Kennedy mini dress and it fit perfectly! I’m all set for summer lady functions now.

We spent Saturday at my Aunt’s house playing Game of Things and having deep talks about French Bulldogs and celebrities.


Coffee in Gram's china

Sunday we gathered for Mother’s Day brunch at Grandma’s. She entertains with her wedding china, crystal and silver which makes everything feel extra special.

A brunch in the sun.

Gram is a fan of shift dresses too.


Hope you all had as lovely a weekend as we did!

    Three generations of smart, stylish & lovely women! I’d love to take your mom/grandma for lunch (with you & Niki, natch too) when your mom comes back to town! By the way, your darling grandma should be on the cover of AARP, that’s assuming she’s over 50!
