{GBF Life + Style} What to Wear and Where to Eat on Easter Sunday

Can I be frank? I look forward to Easter for the lavish brunching event and the opportunity to bite off the ear of a milk chocolate rabbit statute with reckless abandon. After all, no major holiday is truly observed or celebrated unless chocolate and platters of food are licked clean. It's a universal understanding. Growing up, Mom always bought home a Hershey floppy-eared buddy on Easter. I was forbidden from devouring more than one ear-sized piece per day which meant Bunny experienced long and agonizing deaths. Being the bunnytarian that I am, one year I decided to put it out of its misery by chomping down on its body when Mom wasn't looking. Unbeknownst to me, Bunny was filled with syrupy chocolate and caramel that quickly gooeyed all over my mouth. Mom came back, saw my face covered in greed, and took away the mutilated body. Easter fail.

This year, I plan on redeeming my past Easter inadequacies by making fabulous brunch plans early. I've narrowed down my picks to five fabulous LA restaurants and have even picked out coordinating outfits from Target.com to go with the ambiance of each restaurant. With spring in full bloom, Easter must be celebrated in equally blooming fashion!

{Cecconi's West Hollywood + Mossimo Striped Peplum Dress}

Not only does this Italian eatery host some of the hottest A-list parties in Tinseltown  it also whips up the most amazing ricotta pancakes. Look your Easter Sunday best by dressing in spring's hottest trends (black and white, nautical stripes, peplum) while dining in the beautiful outdoor patio. See and be seen!

{Bao Dim Sum House LA + Prabal Gurung for Target Red Dress}

Dim sum may not be traditional Easter fare but if you're craving authentic dim sum without a matching craving for the long drive to SGV, then head over to Bao Dim Sum House on Beverly Blvd. Continue with the nontraditional motif by wearing red instead of white on Easter!

{Fig & Olive + Mossimo Graphic Print Cap Sleeve Dress}

I love the contemporary and airy decor of this Mediterranean restaurant. A graphic print dress perfectly blends with Fig & Olive's nod to modernity and innovative design.
 {Forage Silverlake + Xhilaration Button Down Romper}

Wearing a romper while dining in hipster territory is almost a prerequisite to getting inside its borders. Known for farm to table dishes, Forage is absolutely delicious. Try the kale salad...and everything else on the menu.

{Norm's West LA + Xhilaration Polka Dot Fit and Flare Strapless Dress}

Who doesn't love Norm's? The diner serves delicious and affordable brunch options in an environment steeped in nostalgia. Although you don't need to dress your Sunday best to get in, a playful polka dot dress seems appropriate for a low-key yet memorable dining experience.
