I’m a sucker for a brightly colored wall, so when I spotted this one out of the corner of my eye while driving home from Trader Joes awhile back I made a mental note to bring Jeff back here to shoot an outfit. Luckily a month of so later I finally remembered. There are some parts of blogging that seem really strange to other people. Like stopping in a random neighborhood on a Saturday morning and posing in front of a strangers fence while people drive by. But over time you kind of learn to roll with the punches.
I’m such a sucker for palm printed anything. I have dresses, tops, pillows and even a roll of wall paper that’s sat in my house for months waiting to be hung. I know it’s a trendy print but I love it because it reminds me of summer and Palm Springs – my favorite things.
I wore this dress to dinner on my birthday Friday. It’s such a fun swingy dress that’s perfect for summer because it literally does not wrinkle. You can just throw it in your weekend tote and go… or tuck it away in a suitcase for a trip and not worry about bringing your steamer. Because let’s be honest, no one wants to steam anything on a hot summer day. Am I right?!

Thanks so much for stopping by – enjoy your day!
I think every girl needs a fierce birthday outfit so I’m busting out this little red number today for mine! It’s fabulous and makes me feel like the salsa dancer emoji – AKA – perfect for my bday. We’re celebrating tonight at my favorite sushi spot, right on the water.
I thought about wearing this dress to a wedding this weekend, then I remembered my best friend Shelby once told me she thought it was inappropriate to wear red to a wedding. Something about upstaging the bride, and no one wants to do that! I’ve always just steered clear of the obvious; whites, ivories, nudes or even light blushes. So keeping that in mind… I decided to go a safer color route, thanks Shel!
Happy Friday – thanks for reading!
Hope you all had a safe and happy 4th of July and going back to work today wasn’t too much of a struggle… I know it can be! We celebrated my Birthday in Palm Springs last weekend, first at a rented house with my best friends, then Jeff and I headed over to Le Parker Meridien for some R&R. The Parker is, hands down, my favorite hotel in Palm Springs. Whenever I’m there I don’t want to even leave the property because the grounds are just so breathtaking. We tried to capture some of it’s beauty and I’ve broken this up into two posts, but you really need to go there to experience it in person.
