{STYLE} Florals for Summer with SimplyBe

It's been just over a week since I visited England for the wedding of one of my dearest friends, Briony. London has long been what I consider my third home (after Los Angeles and New York, of course), because of my familial connections to the city and the many friends I've made there. The streets are so familiar to me, and I have deep memories that span across the city - nights out dancing with friends till the early hours of the morning, having tea with my grandmother and exchanging stories, interviewing Beth Ditto for Vogue Italia and attending the London Fashion Week shows of some of my most favorite designers, shooting a look book for Clements Ribiero's Swan collection, hours upon hours of laughing with friends at Bob Bob Ricard or Sketch. Each trip has me coming home with new memories - and this most recent trip had me collecting many in both London and Cambridge.

I packed my bags for my trip and tried my best to prepare for the UK's surprise heat wave - and took a bit of inspiration from English gardens and the lush greenery in Cambridge, where Briony got married, at the historic Kings College. I picked this dress from Simply Be's summer collection (it also comes in blush pink!), and love the bit of ruffled detail at the sleeve. Travel always influences my sensibilities around style, giving me new context to play with my wardrobe and draw inspiration from my surroundings - and after being so deep in work-mode these last few months, I was so looking forward to being outside my usual surroundings! I spent an entire day with Briony and her wedding crew twirling around in Kings Colleges private fellows garden, filled with fresh lavender and garden roses and bumble bees buzzing around. It made my heart so happy - and made wearing this dress all the more sweet!
