My Life, Styled :: Beverly Hills Brunch

August 12th, 2013

Dress for brunch at the Beverly Hills hotel, styled by Jen Pinkston | photos by Mary Costa for Camille Styles

One of the perks of living in LA is the multitude of swanky hotels perfect for brunching, lunching and meeting up with friends. You can do a pool day at The Roosevelt or dinner at PaliHotel, but my personal favorite is the Sunday Jazz Brunch at The Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel. My first adventure to the old-hollywood-LA-chic hotel was on Golden Globe Sunday, three years ago. Pretty much any Sunday between late January and March, you can expect Beverly Hills’ top hotels to be hoppin’ with glittery evening gowns and dapper men in tuxedos as award show nominees and attendees get ready for their big nights…

Long after the client I was working with walked the red carpet, I was still enamored with the flamingo pink and forest green décor of the Beverly Hills Hotel — I mean, where else can you pull that off, but Los Angeles? A few weeks later I wandered back with some of my favorite girlfriends for brunch and we ended up spending most of our Sunday on the premises. Brunch turned into poolside relaxation which turned into afternoon coffees and before I knew it, it was 5 o clock!

Love it or hate it, LA tends to be a pretty laidback city when it comes to style. Most of my summer brunch looks consist of some combination of a high-waisted skirt in different silhouettes and a gauzy cotton top. I picked up this skirt from Topshop a few years back and love it’s versatility.  I found this graphic tee at J.Crew when I was stocking up on new tees before we took off for China earlier this summer.

The perfect equation for your next brunch look? Easy graphic tee + high-waisted mini + funky bangles + day-meets-night cocktail ring + subtle wedges + a great bag = One very effortlessly chic, California cool look!

    I’ll have to admit I’m not the biggest fan of LA, but I do love this summer style! I gotta break out my high waisted skirt before this summer ends!

  2. Adorable! Haven’t been to this brunch location yet, but I’m putting it on my to-do list.

    This looks so great! It has such a 70s vibe to it. I’m visiting LA soon, I might have to put this on the to-do list.
