I  this look.  I have a short version of this that I love, usually as a swim coverup, but this inspires me to dress it up.  I wish I knew the maker of her shades; I have been on the hunt for the perfect clear-framed round shades for months to no avail…

Oooh I’m excited about the return of the short all!  I may be the only one, but I’m excited! (Available HERE via Zara)

#farmersmarket sunday
1. The Loose Leaf teas 2. Ray-Ban aviators 3. In season blood oranges 4. Savenor’s Bag 
I have to share the story behind this bag.  A few months ago, I had to take a business trip to DC.  I knew Julia Child’s kitchen (yes, her actual kitchen!) was on display at the Smithsonian, but my work schedule was so packed, I literally dashed to the Smithsonian via the Metro during a break just to see it.  I have developed a bit of a Julia Child obsession.  It was well worth it to see her famous, yet frills-free, kitchen.  After my business trip, I swung in a quickie side trip to my beloved nyc. I guess I must have been raving about my Child’s experience & a dear friend mentioned that her family frequents the same butcher Julia used.  O-M-G.  Flash forward a few months & this tote arrives at my office!  So thoughtful.  The surprise arrival totally made my Friday & it makes the perfect carry-all for my weekly trip to the local Farmer’s Market.  Now I will always have Julia’s inspiration with me as I peruse the produce & be reminded of what sweeties I have for friends.

desert destination

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.

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.

Pool essentials — SPF, sunnies, Panama hat, & marg.  The vibrant colors on display at the hotel represent the local wildflowers.

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.

I’m on the hunt for round clear-framed sunnies with reflective lenses, I’d love to know where these are from! View high resolution

New shades for the season.  I almost never deviate from my Aviators & when I do, I never spend more than $20.  I am generally super active when I’m wearing shades—everything from beach yoga, paddleboarding to splashing around in the waves, so as you might imagine, I go through shades like water. I like cheap plastic pairs that can easily be thrown into a sandy beach bag & don’t get tangled in your hair when you push them on top of your head.  I am loving this new pair I just picked up, the clear trend adds an extra dash of fun.  Excited about putting together some fun vacation looks for the upcoming warm weather   I love the change of seasons, it’s so exciting!
