Unconventional Easter

Easter was a wonderful day; the weather sunny and warm, and we were in the company of good friends and delicious food (all gluten free). My friend Danielle (who recently went through an extensive culinary program), cooked a Moroccan lamb dish over saffron quinoa. For desert, she baked a polenta, almond, lemon cake with lemon carmel icing. I contributed with a couple bottles of red wine and an organic spring mix salad with radishes, tomatoes, red onion, strawberries and balasmic dressing. Mielle and Chris made stuffed pears with goat cheese and candied walnuts. What a feast!

Danielle has a beautiful backyard that is prefect for a photo shoot. Lucky for me, Jason brought his camera along. I am obsessed with mixing patterns and especially stripes with florals. That is one of my favorite combinations and it happens to be one of the trends for this spring and summer.

Stripes, florals and solids, it's all there

My floral, draped, silk skirt is from Orion London and the striped top is from Tart. Since it wasn’t quite warm enough to go without stockings, I opted for a solid pair of black tights and my Jeffrey Campbell wedged booties.  For an extra layer, I added a solid black knit blazer from 7forallmandkind. I didn’t want to look like a hot mess with too many patterns and colors so I purposely stuck with all black solids.

Faux fur ups the glamour factor

My best friend Aja was in town this past weekend and one of the top 5 things we were to do in her 48 hour visit was to go to Lime brunch in San Francisco. If you haven’t been to Lime I highly recommend you to try it once. Not only is the food fantastic and the mimosas are all you can drink but the ambiance is absolutely fabulous. I love, love, love that it’s a dance party in the a.m.

As always when I get ready for a Lime brunch I am dressed to the nine. It’s a bit of a scene and I love every moment of it. Since I have a number of faux fur pieces, I thought why not share the love and let’s go with a little theme.

I am wearing my Rachel Zoe faux fur vest and Aja has on my BCBG front faux fur vest. We were color coordinated without knowing what each other had in mind prior to adding the vests. Great minds think alike!
