Last week, temperatures finally dropped below 100 degrees and we were confronted with a desert storm! We rarely get cloudy days out here, so naturally, David and I were pretty excited about it. Don’t get me wrong – I am totally a sunshine kinda’ gal, but a change of scenery is refreshing every once in a while. Plus, clouds can really make photos look more dramatic and interesting! We decided to drive out to Salton Sea to watch the sunset and it was a very beautiful night. There was even some thunder & lightning.
Though far from the typical desert-chic style, I’ve always appreciated a good moto jacket. I picked up a stunning embroidered moto jacket by BLANK NYC at my local Marshalls recently and can’t get enough of it. The best part is, it was only $80 (retail $175)! The stud detailing adds a nice edgy touch, while the embroidery balances the look out with the perfect amount of femme florals and a splash of color. If you’re looking to invest in an embroidered moto jacket this fall, check out some of my favorites below!
On one of my weekly thrift store trips earlier this month, I scored this sleeveless military dress for just $8 at Goodwill in La Quinta. You might have seen my recent post about how much I love the olive color for fall. This dress is no exception, and the styling options are endless! Since it’s still pretty hot out, I haven’t quite pulled out my leggings to wear underneath just yet… but you can bet I will in a few months!

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!
