The Beverly Hills Hotel is one of my absolute favorite places in LA. It’s sometimes called “The Pink Palace” so my mom always says of course I love it. I can’t exactly put my finger on why I like it so much, but you can just completely feel the history and the glamour when you’re there. Fun facts- The hotel was built in 1912 and Elizabeth Taylor stayed at the hotel with 6 out of her 8 husbands!

For the majority of my childhood, our house was the same shade of pink as the hotel and we had the same banana leaf trees in our front yard. My mom painted our house white about the same time I left for college, so I think the hotel reminds me of home in some way too.

Betsy and I had the hotel totally to ourselves when we shot these photos. It was so strange because normally the hotel is so busy. We definitely took advantage and played all over the grounds from the palm-tree lined pool to the private bungalows to the iconic Polo Lounge. It was really the coolest thing! We both kept saying we felt like Eloise at The Plaza.

I was trying to match with the hotel’s pink and green motif when I chose this emerald dress, lol! The dramatic color initially drew me to the dress but I also can’t get over the gorgeous back and full skirt. This dress would be perfect for a holiday party if you’re shopping/planning ahead!

    Absolutely gorgeous! Such an iconic spot – you’re so lucky to have been there while it was quiet! Happy Wednesday, lady!
