Mother's Day Festivities + Outfit Post

Today was a great but tiring day. We began with a Mother's Day Brunch with Chris' family that was at a quaint hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Glendale called Bashan. I didn't know what to expect when walking in but oh my goodness the food was amazing! We had our choice for appetizer, main course and dessert. These were some of our selections:

Pork Belly “Teriyaki”  
Crispy Rice Cake, Togarashi, Braised Scallions, Pickled Apples

 Chilled Sweet Pea Soup
Crunchy Wasabi Peas, Crème Fraiche, Chives, Smoked Paprika Oil

 Chocolate Bread Pudding
chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream, cocoa nibs

 Crème Fraiche Cheesecake
Graham Cracker Walnut Streusel, Dulce de Leche, mocha almond fudge Ice Cream

One of my all time favorite stores is Anthropologie. Their latest looks for spring are nothing short of gorgeous, from their brightly-hued dresses to their whimsical printed tops such as this one, I'm in love. I went a little crazy the other day during their one-day only 15% off sale and picked up a pair of the most comfortable pants on earth. AG's are the best brand ever. They fit like a glove and never stretch. I couldn't help but also grab this silk blouse, as well. Naturally I paired this cheery outfit with my yellow flats, and my new floppy hat. Today was a good day, indeed!

I was trying to collect some of the purple flowers to throw in the air, and ended up looking funny in the process!
