BEFORE THE BEE

Beverly Hills Hotel

Who else is loving gingham prints this season? While black is such a classic, I couldn’t resist this sky blue gingham dress from Goodnight Macaroon when I saw it. The light shade is so sweet and soft, plus the ruffled hem and cut-out front make it anything but basic. Oh and let’s talk about the versatility! This is definitely a gingham dress you can wear to BBQ, a baby shower and everything else in between.

Oh and here's a fun dose of reality for you: Minutes after I took this photo, I stepped on a bee on the grass and got stung. I caused a bit of a scene screaming at the top of my lungs outside of the Beverly Hills Hotel and then, the next day, my foot was the size of a balloon. After going to a local urgent care, I discovered that I got a staph infection from the sting- AH! I couldn't really walk for a couple days and it was incredible painful but I survived. Moral of the story, life is not really as glamorous as the blog photos!

The sneakers that go with everything

Beverly Hills, CA

I don't ever remember wearing slip-ons and sneakers as much as I have this year. I'm not sure if it's because I now work at a tech company, or because they are trendy, or because they are just SO comfy, but either way, I am loving this new obsession. And these ones from Vionic are the sneaks that go with almost everything. You can honestly pair probably anything in your closet with them and the outfit would look perfect.

My favorite ways to wear them lately? With dresses, skirts and cropped skinnies. They add an unexpected edge to more feminine looks. I styled them here with one of my new spring dresses from Goodnight Macaroon. The floral embroidery and ruffled hem pair perfectly with these blush sneakers. It is truly one of the easiest (and comfiest) looks in my current wardrobe.
