What I Wore: Palm Springs and Palm Print Forever

Nubby Twiglet | What I Wore: Palm Springs and Palm Print Forever

Palm Springs and palm trees, let me count the ways I love thee.

My obsession with palm prints is still going strong — and there’s so many great new items out there that are covered in them!

When I was recently in Palm Springs, I was walking through a neighborhood in my Billabong palm print rash guard (I always wear it as a shirt in hot weather since it’s cropped and super breathable) and spotted this beautiful corner right as the sun was beginning to set.

I’ve told you time and again how beautiful Palm Springs is….and this is the proof. Seriously, if I had this collection of beautiful foliage right outside my door, I would be so incredibly happy. The ultimate dream!

A few of my favorite things: phone case, book of palms, record player, pillow, art print and sneakers.

Speaking of dreams, though our adventure in condo land has been slightly delayed, having that goal dangling out in front of me has kept me super motivated. Normally, as this time of year sets in and the sun comes out, I just want to be out exploring (all those years of school with a built-in summer break are hard to forget, right?!) but knowing that our goal is to buy in 3 to 6 months, I’m pushing through some late nights and weekends, focusing on the payoff that could very well be a long winter vacation in my adopted mecca.

Having palm trees in my office and having palm prints around keeps the dream alive while the hard work continues. Always surround yourself with visual reminders of what you want!

P.S. I wasn’t going to include this photo since it’s so blown out but I wanted to give you a real life visual of what Palm Springs is like as the sun begins to set. So intense and cool, right?!

I wore: Billabong rash guard, Zara zipper pocket skirt, Dries van Noten sunglasses and Marc Jacobs sneaker wedges (all old).

Over the weekend, I was catching up on reading a stack of magazines and the beauty of the InStyle redesign once again blew me away. InStyle has always been pretty fashionable yet fairly mainstream. A few months back, the US version stepped things up and unveiled a fresh new look.

As someone who runs a studio that also designs a magazine, I have so much respect for what they did to really push the design boundaries — knowing that each seemingly small adjustment takes a lot of thought.
