It’s so hard to believe that we just had our very last summer weekend of 2018! In less than a week, it will officially be fall… even though it feels far from that in Palm Springs. It is still well over 100 degrees during the day, but I’m thankful that we at least get cooler mornings and nights now. As I continue to transition my wardrobe for the new season, I’ve been adding a lot of olive green pieces. It’s such a staple color to wear during the cooler months! If you adore all things olive like me, you’ll LOVE my favorite picks in this shade for autumn 🙂

#advertisement With New York Fashion Week coming up, it is more imperative than ever to ensure that your feet get the proper support they need.

Are you deterred by the idea of wearing high heels because of the discomfort you get from wearing them? Thanks to Dr. Scholl’s Stylish Step™, every fashionista can have happy feet. Say goodbye to ouchies, and bounce from one fashion show to the next with your favorite shoes! Target carries a full line of Dr. Scholl’s Stylish Step™ items, which provide all-day comfort in whatever solemate you choose to wear for the day.
My most recent thrifting trip to Angel View in Palm Desert on Highway 111, again, did not disappoint. I practically thrifted this entire outfit for under $25! The only thing not thrifted were the boots, which I’ve had for a while now. Can you believe it?! The thrifting scene is at least 10x better than the shopping scene out here in the Coachella Valley. I can’t believe it took me a year to get into it. I am so late – but better late than never, right?
As we inch closer to September, it’s time to reorganize our closets and stow away some summer styles to make room for our beloved fall pieces. I must say that transitioning from one season to the next is not a totally big deal for most Californians, especially for desert dwellers like myself. Honestly, I wear summer clothing probably 90% of the time throughout the year because the average December temperature in Palm Springs is still a pretty comfortable 70 degrees. I do get cold easily though – so there’s that… anything below 75 calls for having layers on hand and ready to wear. Have you begun your wardrobe refresh in time for fall yet? Tackle the warm days & chilly nights with these 5 summer-to-fall staples that will ensure a seamless transition into the new season!
It’s crazy that we’re practically in the middle of August already – which means that summer is almost over. Is it just me though, or does it feel like this summer is never-ending? To be honest, I am looking forward to cooler temperatures. Summer is usually my favorite season because of the warmth and longer days, but the heat is a bit too extreme in the desert for me to fully enjoy it. The AC in one of our cars decided to go out the other day when we drove out 3o minutes to shoot some looks, and the ride back in 118 degree weather with no AC was absolutely brutal. I felt like I was going to faint by the time we got home! On top of hydrating, keeping as cool as possible outside is so important when it’s hot. Lately, I have been beating the heat with crop tops. They are easy to wear, and super cute with high-waisted bottoms!
After finding a plethora of awesome little knick-knacks for our home at local thrift stores, I felt inspired to peruse through the clothing racks one day! Buying second-hand clothing was never really my thing, but I quickly learned that you can score worthwhile and even vintage styles at great prices if you look carefully. Sometimes, they’re new too! As you know with thrifting, it’s all about timing and luck. Since I’m pretty new to this, my list of “best thrift stores to find cool clothes” is still in the making. Hopefully in a few months, I’ll be able to share a list of my favorites in the Coachella Valley for you guys to check out! In the mean time, I’ve started a new series called “Thrift Finds” under “Fashion” on here to document my thrift finds. I hope you’ll follow along & enjoy the thrill of the thrift with me 😉
