Can you tell how hot I am in these pictures? What gives it away: my frizzy hair, protruding veins or tired looking eyes? Yes, you can also say all of the above! It was about 104 degrees and pretty brutal to try and pose in the little bit of shade that we could find. But honestly I couldn’t go to Palm Springs without wearing this outfit; it’s so retro — it was made to be worn (and photographed) out there. I’ll tell you a little secret: I’ve had these shorts for almost two years and have never worn them! Isn’t that crazy? I guess I felt that two years of being in my closet was a sufficient amount of time for them to finally make their debut!
When it comes to jewelry I’m a bracelet fiend. Over the years I’ve become more drawn to all things gold and/or rose gold. I may be crazy, but I personally feel that there’s something a little more elegant and edgy to them than silver. It’s always fun finding over-the-top costume-y jewels to wear on occasion, but I also like things that can be worn on the daily mixed with a variety of metals. I knew that this bracelet that was kindly gifted to me from H.AZEEM would be one of those perfect go-to items to wear regularly. It’s dainty enough to be stacked with others yet it has enough sparkle to be the center of attention.
As close as we live to Palm Springs now we had never been until this past weekend. I didn’t really know what to expect, I only knew that I would fall madly in love with it — which guess what, I did. The scenery was nothing like I’d ever seen before, the weather was beautiful and the mid-century architecture made me feel like I stepped back into the ’60s (all of my shift dresses would get a lot more lovin’ out in the desert). Oh, and don’t even get me started on the vintage and thrift shops — they are to die for. So, I’ve come to the conclusion that Palm Springs was pretty much made for me and I can’t wait until I make it back!
