It's not every weekend that you get to have an epic overnight with some of my amazing blogger friends at The Palace Hotel. A few weeks ago, Sarah of Sassy Red Lipstick organized our entire stay with The Palace Hotel team and it was incredible. Before I begin to gush about our stay, let me tell you that The Palace Hotel is one of my favorite hotels in San Francisco. It's history speaks for itself (built in the late 1800's) and as San Francisco becomes more and more modernized, classic places like The Palace Hotel hold a very special place in my heart because they are becoming more and more rare. Also, spending time with some truly beautiful humans (hey Sarah, Veronica, Camilla, LaTisha, and Shannon!) was pretty damn special, too.
Veronica Beard continues to be one of my favorite designers to work with. Every season, Veronica Beard makes me covet their entire collection. From the on point seasonal editions to the dickey and dickey jacket selection to their incredible prints, Veronica Beard truly inspires me as an influencer. After meeting the two Veronica Beard sisters-in-law last summer at a Nordstrom event, I was blown away by not only how humble these two power house designers are but how inspirational it felt to be around them. You could just tell how REAL women inspire them to continue creating and I am proud to be one of those women who can't shut up about how much I adore their voice and their designs.
Once spring hits, all I want to wear is white. There's something so classic and fresh feeling about wearing white so I decided to wear ALL white for today's blog post. I mean, at this point you all know that I can't resist a monochrome look so this is pretty much on brand for WFB. I remember seeing these amazing white overalls walk down Ulla Johnson's runway and thought they were incredibly special. It should come as no surprise when I say I am Ulla obsessed and these overalls are definitely obsession-worthy. However, I did not buy them until I bought this furry jacket during a crazy Tory Burch sale about a month ago. Once I had the jacket, I knew I had to get the overalls because I was already envisioning an all white look to show off for you guys.
When it comes to clothing, I get really excited when I find amazing tops. I know that probably seems really weird because I'm literally talking about tops but you guys, it's actually really hard for me to find awesome tops. Sweaters? Got that down. Jackets? Expert. But tops? Not so much. I think because I'm tall tops don't always hit me right. They're either too short (not into crop tops) or nothing lines up correctly, which is super annoying. I usually just stick with things I know will work, which is much easier for me in the winter because I can basically wear a black turtleneck every day and be done with it but spring and summer are real tough for me.
This happens to me every year. One I start prepping my wardrobe for spring, all I want to wear is gingham. I feel like gingham is the epitome of spring style for me. It's fun, it reminds me of picnics in the warm sun, and it's really easy to pair with a bunch of different things. I recently picked up this gingham top from Zara and I absolutely love it. Not only can I wear it as a long sleeve top (I always prefer long sleeves!) but you can push up the cuffs a bit to make the upper part of the sleeve a little bit more voluminous, which is super fun. I can't wait to wear this top all spring and summer! Do I dare pair it with my favorite red gingham skirt?! We shall see!
