Beach days, picnics, tropical getaways… wherever you’re headed this summer, straw bags are classic staples in every fashionista’s closet — especially for the warmer months upon us. They add plenty of personality and fun flair to even the simplest looks. Recently, I bought two new straw bags (girl’s gotta treat herself after all the stress with moving)! Specifically, I got one in a tote style which you may have seen in my last blog post, and a slouchy one that can be worn as a shoulder bag or a backpack depending on the occasion! For this look, I’m wearing it as a shoulder bag 🙂
Happy Memorial Day Weekend, babes! My apologies for being absent on the blog – we have been super swamped moving into our new house this month. Hopefully we will get back on our usual groove soon! In the mean time, I wanted to share this cute linen dress I found at Marshalls recently. It’s perfect for this weekend’s festivities and beyond, especially in the summer!
Palazzo pants have been popping up everywhere, and for good reason! While I initially thought this trend would look absurd on me, I am surprisingly obsessed with it now. When styled properly, palazzo pants can be super flattering and extremely comfy. This is a huge bonus especially for a desert dweller like myself. The temperatures are consistently going into the hundreds these days, which means light and airy bottoms are a must.
A couple weeks ago, my two lovely friends Jenn of Jubilant Dose and Yuena of Simply Yue came to visit me all the way from New York. One of the things they quickly noticed about me was that all I ever wear is maxi dresses! To be completely honest, this is an observation that I only noticed after it was pointed out to me. It wasn’t until then, did I realize that a majority of my wardrobe consists of… you guessed it, maxis!
Two weeks ago, it got cold enough for the mountains of Idyllwild to be completely covered in snow! I know that this might not sound like a big deal for some of you… but when you’re living somewhere where the temperatures typically don’t dip below 65 degrees out during the day, I’d say that snowfall is quite a treat! Believe it or not, this snowy retreat is just a little over an hour away from where we live in sunny Palm Springs. David and I took a day trip up to Idyllwild with the dogs and it was Rolly’s first time experiencing snow. It was pure delight!
