The Beverly Hills Hotel

The Beverly Hills Hotel

Have you been to The Beverly Hills Hotel? I adore the iconic Martinique banana leaf wallpaper, the fabled history of stars being discovered by the pool, the color palette — pink with green and white cabana stripes! So for our first week back in LA after moving in to our new place, a ladies lunch at The Beverly Hills Hotel was in order. Naturally, I had fun dressing for this Inspiration Vacation! Here’s what I wore to lunch at The Beverly Hills Hotel and a peek at the storied grounds and property…

Beverly Hills Hotel entrance

We had lunch at The Cabana Cafe and one of the best parts is simply walking to the cafe.

 In fact, I consider it an Inspiration Vacation!

Citrus Trees

Shall, we enjoy the fabulous design and decor together?

Let’s meander through the hotel with its banana leaf covered walls…

And fawn over the font of the vintage signage…

And admire the artwork. I spy my friend Gray Malin’s photography from his series shot at The Beverly Hills Hotel!

And look, Terry O’Neill’s iconic photo of Faye Dunaway the morning after the Oscars!

Raffia Sandals

Even the carpet is chic!

Okay, back to outside.

Wandering around the grounds is so fun, spotting this famed neon sign amongst the lush flora and palm trees, as well as banana leaf patio umbrellas!

The Cabana Cafe

Ah, we’ve arrived at Cabana Cafe, the casual poolside restaurant at The Beverly Hills Hotel!

Shall we take a booth?

Cabana Cafe Fruit Plate

Or sit poolside?

Beverly Hills Hotel Pink Boxes

Poolside, it is!

Okay, that fruit plate was refreshing, as was doing a little celeb-spotting…

Before we leave, let’s meander around and snap a few photos…

This is a great spot!

Oops, except for accidentally locking ourselves out. Next time, we’ll remember to prop the door open or go another way.

But, that was fun! Thanks for joining me!

What I Wore

Green & White Dress

In addition to pink, green and white are the predominant colors of The Beverly Hills Hotel and I love a theme, so this new green and white striped dress was in order.

I honestly was a little hesitant when I ordered it that it might be too body con, as I typically prefer flowy silhouettes like my beloved caftans, but I’m happy to report it wasn’t at all. No riding up, no having to tug the bottom down. So if you’re hesitant, I hope that eases your qualms. That said, I ordered it from Nordy’s because their return policy is so easy, good and free.

Floral Cardigan

To top off the look with my favorite floral cardigan that’s based on a vintage cardigan that Kate Spade used to wear and love. I love the sweet, colorful embroidered flowers.


As for accessories, these raffia sandals from Tuckernuck are super comfy and affordable (also available here). I love LOVE these Kate Spade raffia heels that my lunch date Mary wore and she said they are comfy. I might have to order them…

Next, I added these Lisi Lerch heart-shaped pearl earrings, a floral headband a gold bag to complete the look. The bag is Francis Valentine, but is no longer available but this is very similar.

Oh, and my green nail polish is by Gucci. I bought it for the bottle! What canI say, I’m a design junkie. You too?

Have you been to The Beverly Hills Hotel?

Are you gaga for the design and decor too?

Lunch at The Beverly Hills Hotel is such a fun inspiration field trip — and way more affordable than booking a room!

After visiting, I felt energized and like my brain had been plugged back in, just the dose of inspo I had been craving.
