As many time as we have traveled to LA, it seems strange that we never made it down to Palm Springs. It’s a good two hours away, but still really accessible. No excuses… This trip was long overdue. Luckily there was a conference there a couple weeks ago, so we had an opportunity to go. It was a wonderful trip and the weather was just perfect. Santino especially enjoyed it – he is a desert dog, after all!

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Rancho Mirage. It is super nice for humans, but more importantly, it’s very pet friendly. As you can see from the pictures, Santino made himself right at home – even at the pool!

My favorite memory was when Fletch and I went on a hike through the desert. Somehow we managed not to get lost and I didn’t fall off the side of a mountain. I came close when I was trying to be cool and do some yoga poses on a top of a rock, but somehow I stayed grounded.

Here are a few outfit details:

Hot Pink One-Piece Swimsuit by Tori Praver. You can get it here or here.
Black Tassel Trim Tunic by Salt Swimwear, available here.
Multiprint One-Piece Swimsuit by Nanette Lepore, available here.
Gold Gorjana jewelry, here and here.
Celine Sunnies – I’ve had these for years, but you can get similar here.
For Love and Lemons Midnight Crop Top and Mini Skirt, see previous post.

Also, I had some pretty good beauty buys for this trip, so stay tuned… I’ll be sharing soon. Have a wonderful weekend :)

While in Palm Springs, I wore one of my favorite looks from For Love and Lemons. You all know I am a huge fan and have shown lots of pics in this brand in previous posts. This little lacy, two-peice number called the Midnight Crop Top and Midnight Mini Skirt, was the perfect look for a nice dinner with the hubby.

Normally, I would never wear, much less post, something like this. I’m waaaay too self-conscious about revealing my midsection, but who cares, right? I need to quit being so uptight about stupid stuff and let these insecurities go. Weirdly, it gets easier as I get older. You think it would be the other way around?? Anyway, it was fun to get out of my comfort zone and have a fun night out. It also kept me from overeating at dinner, so I guess if nothing else, it was good for that reason.

The crop top, skirt and necklace are available at my store and it also comes in blue!!
As always, thanks again for reading. Hope you all have a wonderful week :)

This is another outfit from my last trip to California. The dress is a variation of the Antigua Mini Dress (which my hubby calls my ice figure skating outfit) that I posted about while I was in vegas last year. Now, the Antigua Mini Dress and Maxi Gown come in many colors, but I couldn’t resist it in sapphire. I almost never wear this color, but I think it is so beautiful. I paired it with my favorite nude sandals and layered some silver necklaces.

Have a wonderful week, and thanks for looking :)

It feels good to be back on the blog! Last week my hubby and I were in LA for work, so we decided to make a long weekend out of it. We drove down to one of our favorite spots on the coast of Newport Beach. It is gorgeous there and I hope to share many more pics soon. One of the days I wore my For Love and Lemons Goddess Maxi Gown. I didn’t feel so much like a goddess, maybe more like a witch, but either way I loved it!! I added lots of layers of silver necklaces and my super chunky YSL booties to complete the look. Complete out fit details below:

This post is a perfect example of my “everyday” look. I love wearing a simple tank top with a pair of short shorts. Typically I wear heels or cute sandals with this look to keep from being too casual. This tank top is among the new arrivals at my store by Lovers + Friends. I love the brand but especially this tank top because it can be worn in a variety of ways – with jeans, skirts, under a jacket… You see, lots of options!! One thing I must admit, is that my hair and makeup are not always fully done. Some days I wear more makeup than others, and I always go several days without “fixing” my hair. Lately I’ve been trying some new beauty products and experimenting with a new skincare routine, which can be seen in these photos. Assuming all goes well, I will share very soon! Changing up products can be risky, especially when it comes to skincare, but I love researching and trying different things. Plus, between my allergies and getting older, my skin seems to be ever changing. What once worked for me will suddenly stop. Am I the only one?? Hopefully all the trial and error will pay off!

One of my favorite brands is Keepsake the Label – it’s an Australian brand that uses high quality fabrics to create unique structures in their pieces. It’s like they are classic and trendy at the same time. I’ve been a fan for awhile and recently started carrying this brand at my store! I was super excited when the first pre-fall shipment arrived that I kept one of each style for myself :)

In this post, I’m wearing the Chained Black Mini Dress and paired it with a chunky necklace and some fun shoes. This dress can be worn a variety of ways, dressed up or down, but super fun either way. I’ll definitely get a lot of use out of this little black dress since it’s a great transitional piece into Fall. I can add a jacket or boots when the weather cools down, but for now in the remaining of Houston Summer, I can appreciate the short length and open back.

LACE IS MORE

Lace is one of my favorite details… It is so beautiful and adds a feminine touch to any outfit. Lately it seems as if I wear a little lace every day, from shorts & dresses to various tops – all with lace details! In this post I am wearing what would be an ordinary black romper, but because of the lace trim on the hemline and lace detailing in the back, it is so much more. I wanted to keep the outfit simple, so I just paired it with some gold jewelry and a platform wedge. Although, this piece could be easily dressed up with some heels or worn more casual with a flat sandal. Either way, the lace detailing is enough on its own, so there’s no impulse to add a lot to complete the look.

GELAZZI

gelazzi

This Summer we have developed a habit of getting gelato most nights. By far, my favorite spot in town is Gelazzi. It is super cute and delicious! Although it seems mostly known for it’s great big Houston mural outside, the flavors inside will blow your mind! I especially appreciate the many varieties of donut flavors offered here – from glazed to chocolate and jelly! In this post, I chose three scoops of chocolate donut in a cone. The best part about this is that there are actual chunks of chocolate covered donuts blended in the gelato. It’s seriously addicting. Fletch made sure to get a scoop of vanilla to share with little Santino because you know we can’t leave him out!

SHORTS STORY

Now that Summer is officially here, it’s time to bring out the shorts. I’m especially into the ones with a cutoff, distressed look and also any with a print or added accent. There are many versions available at my store, and you know I had to keep a pair of each for myself :)

I must admit that I like to wear the little short shorts, and I don’t mind wearing them with heels either. Sometimes I get crazy looks, but oh well. As long as there’s no butt cheek hanging out, I feel like I’m okay. Plus, I’ll stay pretty covered up on top to balance things out. At least that’s what I was going for with this look.

Hope your Summer is off to a wonderful start, XO!
