A Weekend With Mom
Mother's Day The Style Sauce Fashion Blog on the Venice Canals

Mother's Day is one of those Holidays that I think is one of the most important. It celebrates the women who have given us life, and there's really nothing I could think of that is more important than that. While my Mom lives just an hour flight away in Palo Alto, CA, it's been 5 years since she's come down to visit me in Los Angeles. Despite this, I somehow convinced her to come down for Mother's Day this year- and I was unbelieveably excited when she actually said yes! We had an awesome weekend in L.A. There's really nothing like girl time with your mom. We basically just shopped, ate, got manicures, and all of the things in between. Of course, the apple didn't fall far from the tree, and Mom taught me all the saucin' I needed to know from a young age. It's fun playing dress up with her, even now. Thank you Mom for giving me life and coming to spend an unforgettable weekend with me, I hope you'll come to L.A. more often. 

We took some photos near my home on the Venice Canals before our night out on Saturday- pictured here is three generations, my Mom, Me, and my daughter Ladybug (yes, I know she's a dog, but she is literally my child so it counts ok??) 

How did you all celebrate Mother's Day? Whether your Mom is close or far away I'd love to hear how others spent the day with their Moms, "Moms", daughters, or celebrating womanhood in general.. This stuff really gets to me, I'm one of those people that cry during Visa commercials. I'd say don't tell anyone but I just put it on my blog, so there goes my big I'm not sensitive facade! Who was I fooling anyways? ;)

Check out our Mother's Day style and let me know what you think! You can shop a lot of what we're wearing in this post in the gallery below.

While I love this pink hat from Lack of Color Australia with almost anything, it's especially cute with a flirty little black wrap dress and heeled boot. Perfect to take you from day to night.

Mom's sleeveless tunic dress is the perfect length and fit to dress up or down. We found it at a little boutique and I convinced to buy it knowing she'd be able to wear it with so much!

In Los Angeles in 1913 a luxury hotel called Hotel Stowell sat in the Financial District of Downtown on Spring Street and 4th. Flash forward to 103 years later and what was once the lobby of this grand building has been transformed into one of the most genuinely French experiences I've had, well, anywhere. Le Petit Paris is this French restaurant situated in an art deco lobby that makes one feel as though they are noshing on Croque Madames onboard the Titanic. Trés Chic, non?  I had a lot of fun practicing the French I've learned in l'ecole with my waitstaff- everyone from the chefs to the management is authentically Parisian. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch which consisted of such delicious plates as Lobster Eggs Benedict and the most amazing Croque Madame I've EVER had. Le Petit Paris also has an extensive cocktail menu with a full bar, and great wines by the glass and by the bottle. 

The decor at Le Petit Paris has neutral, rich tones with pops of red and a distinct art deco style.

The Le Saint Germain cocktail at Le Petit Paris: Grey Goose Le Poire, fresh lemon juice, champagne, and St. Germain liquor. Refreshing, well balanced, and served in a vintage style champagne flute.

Le Petit Paris also has an adorable boutique next door appropriately called "La Boutique" that carries assorted French chocolates, macaroons, candles, specialty oils, and other assorted gifts. They carry one of a kind treasures, some of which can mostly only be found in France. I highly recommend checking out their adorable boutique before or after your next lunch or dinner there!

For the day I opted to wear a mid-length casual dress in a blue and brown floral pattern from Free People. It unintentionally matched the wallpaper, woops! Here I'm holding a specialty olive oil from France called L'huile de D'Olive by Château d'Estoublon in their Art Deco spray bottle design. It is packaged in a beautiful crystal perfume bottle but actually extremely delicious olive oil! A great buy to showcase in your kitchen or to give as a gift, I plan on tricking a few friends into thinking I've given them perfume as a gift in the near future ;)
