sunbeams and palm trees.

Another quick day trip to Palm Springs today to get some things done. I just love it there. Today was especially beautiful! I was actually getting a little too warm in the sun... I love how the city is tucked up against the mountains and there is such a small town feel to it! It's starting to live up to it's old nickname of "Hollywood's Playground" again which is all too exciting! 
I wasn't feeling so great today but it's been a couple days since I've posted and I just love the setting here!

How adorable is this car? My mom and I stopped at a local car auction that will be taking place this weekend and we found too many that we wanted to take home... I just love the color and look. It's a 1944 Willys-Overland... I don't think I've even seen one before.

True Love Way.

I just finished watching Notting Hill and I'm in a very reflective(?) and lost sort of mood.. though I suppose since this is a fashion blog, I won't go into that... All I know is that I love going to Le Love and reading stories of love lost and love found, of uncertainty and of conclusions, of happiness and sadness, and of hope or the terrible feeling of despair...

Sweet. Disposition.

It took me a while to get on the whole jean shorts with opaque tights but I thought today I'd give it a whirl and I think I'm totally on board now! The only thing is I need a smaller pair of shorts.. These ones are a more slouchy summery version than I'd like for right now but they'll have to do.
I finally found matte black nail polish and I love it! I wish they had more colors though...

I must have these!! They are the Louise Goldin pumps for Topshop and I am in love! But which color?? Hmmmmm... This won't be an easy decision!

Set the Fire to the Third Bar

I've had this outfit in my head for a couple days and figured a night in LA was deserved it. Dinner at XIV and then fun times with karaoke at a bar in the valley called The Draft. Some man was so sweet and told me I really shine and my outfit was perfect and that he wasn't hitting on me, haha! Too cute!

I tried brown nail polish but i'm not sure how I feel about it. I definitely like the greenish/blue better...
I don't feel like these pictures do my outfit justice but they'll have to do... my mom was on the phone when she was taking them..

P.S. I love you

It's strange to switch from constantly wearing black jeans to a pair of blue, especially a pair that has a good amount of whiskering and distressing. However, when I saw this pair of Nudies at the Barneys Outlet, I had to have them! It was a prefect outfit for a lunch in Palm Springs; light and casual to fit with the beautiful weather yesterday but the heels and elbow patch blazer add a little more dress.

Oh how I love sales!

I went to the Barney's Outlet store the other day after receiving a phone call informing me they received a new shipment of designer shoes; specifically, a pair of gold Louboutins, however they weren't quite my taste so I let them go. BUT I did find these beauties! They were marked down to around $270 and then an additional 40%!! Which means I got a steal at $160! So fantastic. I really really love my new Miu Miu slingbacks and I love the shoe boxe too, ha!

They are a sea foamy green with a patent heel and cream stitching up the back....  I love their retro feel!

Night and Day....

So this past friday my mom and I went to a Go Red luncheon in Palm Springs. Red attire was requested so I had to make a little trip to South Coast plaza! It is a difficult thing finding something red right now, which seems a little strange since Valentine's Day is right around the corner...
Anyway, I ended up finding an amazing dress at Barney's Co-op and loved the result!

My mom looks too pretty! Her dress is older than I am!

Later that night, my parents and I went to see Annie at the newly refurbished theatre in town. I loved my outfit too much so I decided to wear it again, with a few changes to make it more nighttime appropriate. I added black opaque tights and switched to patent platforms because it was raining.

Feeling gray? Not quite!

So I took a little inspiration from the fabulous Kate Moss and went light with the clothing. It's not like me to not wear black or dark gray but I went for it and am happy with the outcome! Oh and I just got my hair done! FINALLY!

The other night my friend Beka and I had a little photo shoot after a family birthday... I love love love her sisters drapes. They make me think of old castles in Europe and I really want some in my own house whenever that will be...ha!
