LOOK OF THE DAY: CASUAL COFFEE & LOVELY LUNCH


The other day I met my friend for a pumpkin spice latte, my new seasonal favorite, at Starbucks where we ended up sitting right next to Patti's Matchmaking Team from Bravo's hit reality show "The Millionaire Matchmaker."

After a relaxing coffee, we both headed to Bea Bea's right near by for lunch since we both had not eaten and really enjoy their sweet potato fries. Plus, they have endless decadent breakfast items served all day!

So, here I am with my super simple Look of the Day for our afternoon of coffee and lunch...

Kicking up my heels!

Looking towards the bright side of life.

Close up on my accessories.

My trusty fall boots!

Simple make-up for a simple look.

Tuna melt with oh so yummy sweet potato fries!

All smiles after a tasty afternoon!

Later that week, my extraordinary parents arrived in LA where we have been doing some fun shopping, sight seeing and yummy eating too!

They are here for a few months doing some house hunting, and I wanted to welcome them with a bottle of wine and little card that I brought over to the lovely place they are temporarily renting while here, which I did sporting the same outfit.

Delivering my welcome gift...my dad also likes to document everything! :)

The only change was, I added a little gold key necklace (similar to this one, but mine was from Forever 21 for $4.80) to the outfit for its second showing...hehe!

Keep in mind that this look would also be appropriate for anything business casual, and you could always change out the shoes to make it work for you or the circumstance!

Anywho, I hope you are all enjoying your week so far and any casual coffee or lovely lunch breaks you have gotten the chance to take. I'm simply loving having my lovely parents in town!
