This past weekend, my heart was taken by the stunning French bakery Bottega Louie. For those of you who don’t know about Bottega Louie, think classy, European and just the right amount of pink! From decadent marble floors to subtle gold accents, this delightful patisserie is breathtaking. (Some Los Angeles girls would be appalled to learn that I had never been before, being the foodie that I am.)
I apologize in advance for those of you not in L.A. but, hey, if you ever happen to be in town, you’ll know where to go.
For a day filled with decadent pastries and lattes, I thought a French-inspired OOTD was only appropriate. I started the day with an (almost) all-black ensemble which included leather, stripes and a bold red purse.
Here’s the lovely exterior of the building.
It’s not just the decor that’s beautiful. The food can also be considered art. Macarons, eclairs and Napoleons galore!
These Earl Grey macarons are a tea- and sweet-lover’s dream.
Took a bite of heaven, then thanked the heavens.
I thought this photo was pretty great. You’ve got the mouth-watering raspberry macaron in focus, with my brother in the background happily licking extra sugar off his fingers. Delish!
A box of sweeties to go please!
P.S. I know I just dropped quite a few photos on y’all just now, but if you’d like to see more, check out this story I made on Steller.
