Afternoon Tea at Ladurée

I recently had afternoon tea at Ladurée at The Grove and loved it! I mean, who doesn’t love macarons and tea in the middle of the day? Hello heaven! If you go for the champagne, then you are really a girl after my own heart, lol! I’m over the moon that Ladurée came to LA, so I can pretend I’m in Paris for an afternoon. The restaurant is really gorgeous—did you see that chandelier?! Insane. Of course you know I’m all about the pink-striped wallpaper in the tearoom too. Felicia and I had tea and a few gorgeous sweet treats…

Floral Maxi Dress in Venice

Hi girls! How are y’all? Is it Friday yet? Mary Liz, my bestie from college, is staying with me in LA this weekend and I AM EXCITED. Like really really excited. You probably remember Mary Liz from her multiple appearances on Brooke du jour, lol! I threw her a “Party Like A Pineapple” welcome home brunch last summer and she helped organize my “California Love” going away party in December. Check out both events if you’re looking for inspo for bachelorette parties, birthday parties, etc! I have a very packed itinerary for us and rain be damned we are going to…

Everything’s Coming Up Roses + A Giveaway!

Hi there! Happy Monday! Do you have your coffee yet? I’m sitting here with mine (I take it with 3 Splendas and 2 creams- is that gross?) and feeling ready to tackle my ridiculously long to-do list. Anything from Kate Spade is my shopping kryptonite, and this pretty rose top is no exception. I really can’t get over the sweet ruffles and the brooch, but I’m especially crazy over the print. Kate Spade has a whole line designed in this print, which I loooove! If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day present, I think this scarf would be a really…

Easter Hoppy Hour!

If you’ve been hanging around Brooke du jour for a while, you know this girl loves a good party. Yes, yes! If it involves food, flowers and friends, I’m always down! I wanted an excuse to get my new LA friends together and Easter coming up gave me the perfect opportunity. I originally thought about doing a brunch on the weekend but with everyone’s crazy travel schedule, a hoppy hour after work did just the trick (hehe see what I did there?!)!

My Favorite Dress Ever?!

O.m.g. THIS DRESS! It’s really stunning, right? The mirror accents! The embroidery! The beading! Special shout out to Betsy for capturing such incredible movement. Any dress I can waltz around in like the salsa dancing emoji gets an A+ in my book. Can we also get a little honest about the neckline? I have teeny tiny boobies—It’s fine. They’re tiny but they’re mine and I’ve made my peace with ‘em—and I think this dress gives me… dare I say it… décolletage?! Whenever I feel like I get even a smidge of sexy boobage in an outfit, you can find me…
