The perfect day is finding out that Caruso’s Grove in Los Angeles now has a Laduree Restaurant from Paris. If you are looking for a great place for lunch or dinner on a weekend or just because – slip on your Chanel inspired boucle jacket and go get some macarons at Laduree. We happened upon the restaurant 2 days after Christmas and it was not busy for lunch. Turns out the crowds were too busy shopping the after Christmas sales to notice that Laduree was right there across the street from the AMC Theater and Nordstrom. Always having Paris on my mind, I made a beeline for the restaurant and sat there to have a light lunch before doing any shopping at The Grove. (Jacket – Shopbop)
We had Laduree’s traditional Marie Antoinette Tea with avocado toast and asparagus, hot chocolate, and their mini burgers with fries. For dessert we had macarons of course. The avocado toast served on a brioche and a poached egg on top was a perfect light lunch after a very festive Christmas season including a trip to Punta Mita. I was glad to have something light for lunch. My daughter had the 4 mini burgers and fries and she totally enjoyed them. The macarons were a small gluten free treat that were a perfect dessert to end our meal.
After lunch, we made our way to Topshop and saw the most amazing embroidered leather jacket. The jacket was the perfect combo of edgy and feminine at the same time with its delicate embroidery and steel spikes crafted perfectly all over the motorcycle style leather jacket. It’s still on my wishlist.
We did pick up some pom pom keychains and pom pom hats while at Topshop, and made our way to Barnes and Nobles to pick up some adult coloring books. Not sure if you have ever seen an adult coloring book, but they are pretty cool. Picture some of the most beautiful landscapes or artistic drawings that need to be colored in with colored pencils. If you are looking for a way to destress after the holidays, these coloring books may be an alternative to going for a run if it is too cold to go for a run. After that, we headed home in traffic.
Ulla Johnson Melange Boucle Sweater – I am in love with this gorgeous printed Ulla Johnson Melange Boucle Sweater. It has that amazing heavy weight but soft feel that you want to curl up in all of the time. It is like you are wearing a cozy blanket on your body all day. If you are still feeling the chill of spring this sweater is perfect for you. Even if it is going to be hot out in the summer you can wear it to the office where the air conditioning will be blasting all day. Wear it with the Ulla Johnson crepe army pants for the full look. It is so chic and comfortable.
McGinn Tania Embellished Boucle Jacket – When you think of a Chanel jacket you probably think of a jacket like this but for $6000. I have always wanted a Chanel boucle jacket and have tried them on every time I have a chance to check one out at the Chanel boutiques. However, I have never wanted to buy a Chanel jacket because of the price tag. Enter the McGinn Tania embellished boucle jacket. I first spotted this online a few weeks ago and have kept going back to look at it. At first I thought I don’t need this boucle jacket since I have others by IRO and Isabel Marant, but then upon closer inspection I realize the reason why someone like you or me might need this jacket is because it has that classic look that we covet from a Chanel boucle jacket with the edgy contemporary tailored fit that we want from an IRO or Isabel Marant jacket. This jacket is just closer to a Chanel style jacket than the other because of the piping on the edges and the pocket detailing. The price is great too $275. Get the McGinn Tania jacket and wear it with everything all this fall.
Perfect IRO Carene Boucle Jacket for Fall – the perfect jacket for fall is this IRO Carene Boucle jacket. It is slightly tapered and cropped but has that Chanel jacket look that gives it that classic chic we all love. Where it all fall into spring with jeans and a tank or with a dress for lunch or to work and after work. This jacket will really be the perfect look for any occasion.
Maison Scotch Boucle Jacket with Denim Placket – I kinda love this look. it is like the 80’s runway model look where Chanel had the girls walking down the runway with their boucle jackets and jean jackets tucked into them. However, Maison Scotch did something more genius and only added a placket that buttons out so that you can wear this boucle jacket alone or if you want to look edgier you would add the denim placket back in.
