A collaboration I am excited about! I opted for the striped pants above. View the collection HERE.
SUNO is a women’s clothing label founded in 2008 in New York by Max Osterweis with designer Erin Beatty. For their first collection, the pair drew from Osterweis’ vast collection of Kenyan textiles, using vintage Kenyan Kangas to mark the launch of the brand. Since then, the line has evolved, combining prints and textures of all kinds into impeccably tailored garments. SUNO creates its designs in New York and produces them in Kenya, India and Peru.
I’m not generally a Gap girl. My style is seldom described in the realm of perky or preppy. Cardigans (except the baggy 90s grunge kind) bum me out. But every once in awhile, a girl needs a comfy staple! The Gap Skinny Mini Skimmer doesn’t look like much, but the fit is flattering & it can be styled a million ways. Because even Sunday errands deserve some love. (Plus I nabbed mine during an in-store sale for only $35!) Right now you can use code ‘GAP35’ for 35% off your purchase. If you really want to get on the prep wagon, pair it with a fun color-block striped tank.
In honor of Coachella, I am finally getting around to a quickie post about my Palm Springs vacation a couple weeks ago. The desert really is one of my favorite places to unwind. It’s so magical, especially this time of year when the temps are engaging & the wildflowers are blooming.
Ace Hotel Swim Club tank, one of my favorite poolside scenes in ps
The Saguaro - tried out a new hotel this trip (my favorite is The Parker). I’d heard good things about the new(ish) Saguaro, which joins the Joie de Vivre family & the raging motel makeover trend…maybe it was spring break, but the pool scene was overrun with kiddos & marking out your pool chair real estate was super agro. They did graciously check us in considerably early, the poolside menu was tasty & the beds were super comf. They also offer a morning yoga class & bikes.
My new sunnies, moments before I lost them
The famous giant Marilyn staue, set against the desert mountain line, downtown Palm Springs
While we were in town, we also perused Villagefest, a weekly street fair. I picked up some cute earrings from a street vendor to remember the trip.
Time to change up the beauty routine; spring is in the air! Both available at Sephora.
Nars blush in Exhibit A | Even though I have fair skin & this shade looks intimidating, applied very lightly it totally works! I love it because it’s not as pink-y as most blushes.
YSL Glossy Stain in No. 29 Rose Fourreau | If you don’t already know about YSL’s new glossy stain, know about it! It’s fantastic & lasts all day. I absolutely cannot deal with goopy lips & this goes on so light & smooth. It has the sheen of a gloss, but once that wears off the stain sticks around. I only reapply once during the workday, it comes in so many great shades & I love the applicator!
‘Hamsa’ comes from the Hebrew word for five & is an ancient symbol believed to ward off the evil eye. I picked up a simple adjustable cord bracelet at a little market in sf & I have been very superstitious about it lately.
