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 incredibly painful but I survived. Moral of the story, life is not really as glamorous as the blog photos!

Still in denial that summer is nearing the finish line? Me too!

And before the sun sets on my favorite time of year, I am wearing (and re-wearing) all the best styles of the season.

Gingham has just gotten so GOOD this year. Am I right?  Designers continue to find ways to make this picnic-y print feel updated and new.  With a sassy off-the-shoulder design, this top puts a trendy twist on the classic print. I saw it while shopping at H&M a few weeks ago and had to grab it. Great for daytime dates or even a trip to the beach, this flirty outfit is a summer standout.

Denim is always a ‘do. No matter the season, no matter the occasion, it’s a classic choice. And in the dead of summer, I love finding ways to wear pants or rompers, since I always go for the obvious dress when it’s so warm outside. I ADORE this piece from Anthropologie because the flared cut actually gives the appearance of a longer leg and the fitted top makes for a really flattering silhouette. It’s a jumper that’ll keep you cool on steamy days and transition well into fall with the addition of a tee or jacket.

It’s also a fun number to accessorize! Try either statement earrings or a neck scarf up top and some bolder booties or pumps on the bottom.
