tuesday’s girl: gotta get away
spring break takes me back to my teenage days in palm springs. we went every year with my family, and i got to bring a friend. we’d stay at the tropicana motel – no great shakes, but i was happy. a little shuffleboard, a big swimming pool with a diving board. dr. pepper with wheat thins and that port wine cheese that came in a plastic tub for lunch. those were the days. i loved dressing for those super hot days, so i thought i’d round up a few looks that i think would definitely walk the walk in downtown palm springs. a little yellow sundress. check. an adorable striped clutch, check. what next? spf 45, anyone?
how about a mix of pattern and stripes? Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Striped cotton dress; some awfully cute J.Crew Pebble-print cotton Bermuda shorts; Kate Spade Pink Chandelier Earrings; Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Eyelet Striped top is a perfect bathing suit cover up; add a little swipe of NARS Lipstick in Niagara and you’re good to go.
i can just picture sun bathing by a beautiful swimming pool (via the design files); i like the flowy comfort of this pretty emerson fry orange tie waist dress; add some splashes of turquoise, like these DV by Dolce Vita turquoise sandals and j.crew turquoise bangles; change things up easily with ASOS’ LADYBUG Toe Cap Neon Ballet Shoes and heidi merrick’s tommy shirt. finally, travel light with kate spade’s adorable polka-dotted cosmetic case. let’s get on the road!
