Embroidered Maxi Dress

August 4, 2016

Embroidered Maxi Dress at Beverly Hills HotelCelebrations of any kind are always a favourite of mine, especially with loved ones. With a very long trip starting in just a week, I decided to forgo a big birthday getaway and enjoy an intimate celebration with Tom.

An everflowing dress was my birthday uniform. Intricate floral details combined with a plunging deep neckline and an uber feminine long skirt. As long as I didn’t spill anything on myself, the day would be perfect – and luckily for me, not one drop of ice cream or piece of chocolate cake touched this dress!

Their outdoor seating was so adorable with striped green booths, fresh flowers, sun, cute umbrellas and pretty baby pink walls.  It was a really laid back day, which is exactly what I needed.

We both ordered Wagyu burgers with fries, indulged in cake and took a stroll around Santa Monica before ending on a double scoop of fresh mint and coffee ice cream.

What do you like to do for your birthday? Have you ever celebrated your weekend over a couple of days?

    This truly is SUCH a beautiful dress – and you couldn’t have been wearing it in a prettier location. I love its plunging neckline and the pink flowers around you really ‘make’ this scene 🙂

I love that dress and if it were me, I don’t think I would’ve gotten through the day without spilling something on that dress, haha, so clumsy! I also love the bag you added, such a gorgeous color!

      Aw, thanks a bunch Vanessa! This is a great spot, isn’t it? There’s just so many places to visit in LA, and we’re going someplace new every week. It’s how I always lived in every city though, so it’s well suited in LA, with all the great spots here. 🙂 Hope you visit again soon! When you do, definitely let me know! 🙂

    What a fabulous idea! I think birthday getaways are the best and create more memories than a physical gift. This dress is so stunning and I love the details on it. Such a gorgeous birthday gown! Sounds like the perfect birthday celebration! xoxo, Christine

      I love trips for birthdays. I’ve been doing them for most years for about a decade. They started as trips to New York, then a few local weekend getaway road trips, Mexico and mostly Europe after that, but each one has been incredible and the memories are priceless. 🙂 Highly recommend it to all! Thanks so much!

    Miki, first of all, happy birthday! I just had mine a couple of days ago, but we didn’t do anything special since it was a weekday. However, we are planning a weekend getaway to NYC later this month, and I am already excited about it:)
    Secondly, you look so beautiful in this maxi dress! It’s such an eye-catching piece; I would love to get something similar for my next vacation:)
    Thanks so much for sharing and have a great weekend!

      Happy birthday to you too, Yulia! How wonderful. I usually do birthday getaways every year. The first one I ever did was about 10 years ago and was to NYC. It’s such an incredible place to go. I hope you have an amazing time! It sounds like it will be wonderful! Take lots of photos! I can’t wait to read about it.

    This dress is beautiful and you carry it off so well! I had seen it on ASOS previously and really liked it, but I wasnt sure how it would look in real life. Seeing it on you now, makes me want it all over again!
