During the summer, I’m always looking for excuses to channel my inner beach bum. Lucky for me, I was recently in Santa Monica and was totally inspired by the gorgeous scenery. The challenge of incorporating resort wear into my daily outfits is a fun one, and working with summertime prints is one of the easiest ways to do this. One of my favorite prints of all time, the lush banana leaf, was inspiration for this particular look. The tropical foliage reminds me of my favorite place to stay in L.A. — The Beverly Hills Hotel! Small nuances and overlaps between fashion and interior design have always intrigued me. If it was acceptable to wear this print all year round, you know I would.
