Hello beautiful friends!
I can’t believe I haven’t blogged in almost two months BUT I’m back, 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? Haha 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?
