Inspired by… Palm Springs.

Am I gushing about Palm Springs too much? Sorry. (ICYMI – Read my travel guide here.) Now all I can think about is when I can go back. I haven’t felt this way about a place since the first time I ever visited Charleston. Just loved it… so much.

So now I want to be back there, lounging poolside with a fruity drink of some sort… wearing this swimsuit with this crocheted caftan and a big ol’ pair of tortoise sunnies. Preferably sitting on a round beach towel, while spritzing myself with Avene’s Thermal Water Mist (I have this and it’s wonderful… so refreshing!) I guessss I’ll settle for Cape Cod or the Hamptons (I’m being facetious, both are incredible) but in the meantime, I’ll be missing you, Palm Springs!

You can click the above image to shop or….

  6. Love that feeling when you are inspired and can’t wait to go back. I fell in love with Barcelona the same way.

    I love the new layouts and also the “inexpensive” sunglasses from Nordstrom you keep sharing. I never remember to check out the BP department, but now I will.

    • I am so happy you like the new layouts… and yes, BP has the greatest sunglasses! I am accumulating quite a collection…

    I can’t believe you didn’t think you would like PSP!!!! We went in March for our minimoon and my husband and I are OBSESSED. Like…sort of considering moving there. I’m also from Charleston and love that you linked the two…I totally agree! Although they are TOTALLY different, there is a similar joie de vivre and wonderful pace about each one. The food, the scenery, the architecture, the tourism, not to mention the FOOD! Hope you get to go back soon too 🙂

    • Hahahahah I know I am crazy! It’s sooooo wonderful. All my friends were like – “wait… why did you think you wouldn’t like it!? Are you crazy!?”

      You nailed it with the joie de vivre of both! xx
