Happy Monday friends! I just spent a lovely weekend in Lake Arrowhead with some of my friends from college (more on this trip coming soon!). If you’ve never been to The Beverly Hills Hotel, I highly recommend putting it on your list while you’re here in LA. Consider being in the middle of a busy city, but you feel completely isolated with all the greenery and trees. It’s like a walk in the park, it’s simply heavenly.  It’s one of our city’s hidden gems. You don’t hear the busy traffic off of Sunset Blvd and barely the honking of cars.

While you’re there, head down to the pool area and have lunch at The Cabana Cafe. My favorite things on the menu are the Frozen Mojito, Truffle Parmesan Fries, McCarthy Salad and the Tuna Tartare. You can be as casual as you want while dining by the pool or get a little bit more dressed up. This pair of distressed denim has become my go-to pair of pants. I love that I can dress them casually with some espadrilles (on sale for $105) or dress them up with some heels. If you’re feeling something more along the lines of date night or a classy evening out, I recommend going to the lobby area for The Polo Lounge. There are some items from The Cabana Cafe that are their dinner menu. But, I’d recommend the Tortilla Soup, Rigatoni Bolognese (amazing!), Steak Tartare, Lobster and The Burger.
