Beach Bag Essentials

I’m nosey so I always love seeing what other people carry in their bags. Whether it’s the every day purse, clutch or beach bag I’m insanely curious to what everyone else hauls around. Maybe I’m missing something that could change my world and I don’t even know. Anyway, here’s a peak at what I brought to the pool last weekend in Palm Springs.

A few things that are always with me? Sunglasses, chapstick and my cell phone. I’m not the girl who carries a makeup bag in their purse, but every time I’m out with girlfriends and one pulls hers out I make a mental note to stash mine away. Somehow this never seems to happen, but I love brining a tinted moisturizer, or this complexion rescue from bare Minerals  (more on that here) when I’m out in the sun.

Tassel Sundress

tasseldress1

When I’m on vacation I love wearing sundresses and rompers more than anything. First of all, they’re easier to pack and they take up less room because you don’t need multiple pieces for an outfit. But I also love their versatility. Take this one from Cheeky Peach, it was  as perfect to wear to brunch as it was over my swimsuit as a coverup for a day at the pool. And let’s talk about embellishments… tassels are my favorite and I can never pass them up.

When we were in Palm Springs last weekend we made a stop at The Parker to walk around and take some pictures. It’s always been a special place to us and it’s where Jeff popped the question last summer. It was our first time back and so fun to re-visit.

I’m very much looking forward to this weekend. I have so many wedding related tasks I need to catch up on and I know we’ll be able to squeeze in some fun as well. Hope yours is just as nice.

Pineapples in Palm Springs

pineapples1

I am so pineapple obsessed it’s ridiculous. I’m even incorporating them into our wedding theme. I snap up everything pineapple I see and it might be getting a little embarrassing. A few weeks ago I was at Nordstrom and saw this matching set. Right off the bat I bought the crop top and went on to another section. But before I left the store I went back and got the skirt. They’re both such fun pieces and will be great to wear separately too.

I knew it would be so fun to wear in Palm Springs and luckily I had a trip planned out there this past weekend. The bad thing was when I buy something I really love I want to wear it right away and I had to wait two whole weeks to wear it! I guess I’m not the only one who loved it because the skirt is already sold out. I’ve been searching for the best pineapple pieces and pulled them below for you. Is there such a thing as too many pineapples? Only if you ask my fiancé!

Swimspot Festival Fashion

festival

Now that it’s officially spring and nearly April, festival season is among us. As much as I love a desert vacay, I’m not really into the actual music festivals. But I do love a good pool party, looking at pictures of celebs who go to the fests and of course the fashion. Something about them really makes you want to channel your inner hippie and pile on anything boho and I love it! I’ve partnered with Swimspot to bring you a fun festival fashion appropriate look whether you’re hitting the actual events or just want to look the part at your own pool.

And guess what? Swimspot wants to take you and a friend to the mother of all music festivals (you know the one – sounds like Nutella) in Indio April 10th through 12th. All you have to do is head over to their Instagram to find out the details.
