Hello beautiful friends!
I can’t believe I haven’t blogged in almost two months BUT I’m bac and promise there’s a valid reason behind it. Time for a life update!
After two years living in the desert, David and I are in escrow for our first home together in Palm Springs… and it is the CUTEST little bungalow ever! 😀
Home buying is so stressful! We have been anxiously preparing for this next chapter, and packing up early so we are ready to move as soon as escrow closes. The whole process has been… well, a process – from house hunting with our amazing realtor Joe Chung with Berkshire Hathaway (he is the BEST!), to putting in our offer and then moving forward with all the paperwork, inspection, and other #homebuyer logistics LOL. Anyways, we are excited to be moving into our new abode later this month. David and I are reaching out 5-year anniversary and no joke – every year we’ve been together, we’ve moved somewhere new. Now that we’ve decided we love it out here, we hope to stick around for a while. It honestly feels like just yesterday that one year had gone by in the desert for us!
It is one of my goals to get back into blogging more regularly once we are settled in. I’ve literally just been living in the same workout clothes for the past month or so because most of my clothes have been packed away in boxes already. Can you tell I’m ready to move? I’m praying that escrow closes early in our favor 😉
With this transition and projects behind the scenes, we haven’t had the opportunity to shoot new looks as often. That will change as soon as we move back into South Palm Springs where every corner is photo-worthy. Just thinking about it gets me so inspired because the area we’re living in now isn’t as photogenic, which sometimes discourages us from even going out to shoot. This easy breezy summer look was one of the most recent outfits we shot and I am happy with how it turned out.
You can honestly never go wrong with vertical stripes because of how flattering it is. I especially love this trend on this high-waisted skort from Fifteen Twenty!
Dressed down with a simple cami but elevated with platform wedges for that extra “wow factor,” this skort with stripes epitomizes my go-to style when I feel like dressing up these days. So perfect for an evening stroll around town! Wouldn’t you agree? 🙂
Are you a fan of stripes? What’s a summer trend you’re wearing on repeat this year?
Ahhhhh!!! Congrats on the new home babe! I’ve missed your posts and am glad you’re back. Keeping my fingers crossed that escrow closes early for you and David ☺️💕
Congratulations on the home! It was to be tough moving every year but Palm Springs is a beautiful place for sure! Great outfit. My oldest was inmy office while I was reading this and she said she loves this look. 🙂
I loooooove this outfit – very summer vibes! And I am obsessed with your bag! You are such a style icon <3
Nnniiiccceeeee….I love this look. Trendy, sleek and radiant.
Congratulations on your new home! It’s such a wonderful feeling when you finally have a place that is truly your own. I’m loving that look, too! So cute!
A round of applause on buying your new home! It isn’t the most fun thing to do, but it can be exciting! This outfit is such a cute one, and I love the sandals!
you look so pretty! Vertical stripes are classic yet so very good on you! good luck with house: it is stressing but I think it’s so worth it!
I love summer stripes! It’s very refreshing and comfortable looking! Love your style!
Big Congrats on your new home! Now, the real fun begins! It is really a wonderful time, as long as you don’t get too stressed. My wife would love your outfit!
Congratulations on the new home, moving can be pretty stressful but it sounds like you guys made it through just fine! Enjoy the new place and the new city.
Congratulations on the home! I bet you all are so happy! I am loving this skirt and shoes. You styled this look so well!
Oh, I love this summer outfit! The blue and white color are my best ones! And that pair of shoes passes very good!
Congratulations on your new home. Looking forward to reading more of your blog posts once you’re settled in. BTW, I love your skirt. Vertical stripes are “slimming” so I guess that would work for me. Love your shoes too! Perfect match for the skirt and top.
Good luck with the move – you’ll be pleased to get all your stuff out of boxes.
I love this outfit – stripes are always a good look.
Congrats on the new home! This is always an exciting time! I absolutely love this look, the skirt is so unique and you are right vertical stripes are always flattering! This look has inspired me to get out and do some summer shopping!
Congratulations on your new home! I love the navy platform heels. They scream summer to me.
Thank you Tracy!
Congrats on your new home and your almost 5 year anniversary! As a homeowner I know by experience that the whole process is really stressful and exhausting. Until the very minute before the closing I was stressed and submitting documentation. Best wishes for you and your hubby! Enjoy your new home.
Stripes are so in! I love those shorts babe 🙂

There’s something that I got to learn with marriage..Horizontal stripes make ladies look slim and they love it. Congratulations on the house too.

OMG house hunting! That is so exciting! I hope you two find the perfect home together 🙂 This bungalow really is a pretty one<3
Congratulations! I know the stress as I am in the middle of it now. I listed and sold my home, and I am in the middle of a huge move. It is exciting and exhausting. Welcome back and enjoy your new digs.
Congrats on the new home! I also love your outfit too. 🙂
Thanks for sharing.
Yay!!! Congratulations!! Definitely a good reason to step away for a bit! It’s so hard to keep up with blogging through big life changes like buying a home and moving, so I totally get the need to step away for a hot minute;) Hope the rest of the process goes smoothly for you all!
I feel you on the home buying stress! We moved in to ours at the end of last year. Congratulations on the big purchase and finding a place that finally feels like home!
Can’t go wrong with stripes this season. Such a chic and pretty summer look dear! Also, huge congrats on your big purchase!
