I’ve been loving the distressed denim trend and the boyfriend jeans trend lately so decided to give both looks a whirl. And now I’m totally hooked (these Citizens jeans are SO soft and beyond comfy). Boyfriend denim is my new best friend. Here’s how I wore distressed boyfriend jeans for a little desert adventure.
Buttercups! Sorry to be a bit MIA lately — I’ve been in a pool party-planning frenzy! In my frenzy, I’ve been hitting up all my favorite vintage stores here in Palm Springs (post coming soon) to find some cute yard decor for this weekend’s festivities.
Here’s a peek at a few finds and what I wore for an afternoon of shopping in Palm Springs.
Happy Father’s Day, Golightlies! How are you spending it? While my celebration of Father’s Day is mostly of the telephonic variety, I’d like to dedicate this post to my dad (who, after years of not understanding what the hooha I did, now actually reads this blog, almost daily and sometimes even considers it “real writing”).
Are you guys familiar with Beckley by Melissa? I attended a preview recently and fell in love with the brand the moment I laid eyes on the beetle-print dress. (As someone who is famously squeamish, that’s even a surprise to me!) I also love the blue dropwaist dress, which channels Gatsby but in a cool, modern way. What’s your favorite piece?
You can check out and shop Beckley by Melissa here and here.
And while you’re there take a peek at this interview with me on the Beckley blog, in which I share what I can’t live without, my favorite fashion memory and where in the world I’d like to go next!
There’s nothing more Fred Baby and I like doing than hopping in the car and heading out on a road trip adventure. And to say I love California may be the understatement of the century, so this clever clutch really speaks to me. You too?
We’re currently in Palm Springs getting the casa prepped for our upcoming pool party and I’m amazed at how different you can feel when you change your environment. I love LA but had been getting stressed to the nines for no good reason. A simple change of scenery and I feel brand new. Do you find that to be true, too? Perhaps it’s the body’s way of knowing it’s summer break!
Happy Monday, loves! Let’s kick off the week with a question: Do you workout?
Happy Friday, Golightlies! How was your week and are you ready for the weekend? Darling Fred Baby made a whirlwind business trip to Europe but I’m happy to say I cooked every meal while he was away. Normally you can find my picking up a La Scala chopped salad and making it last for my next four meals, so that’s an improvement and a thumbs up for sticking to one of my summer goals.

My friends Leah and Mary recently asked me if I had any goals for June. I don’t normally have monthly goals (though after reading this, I think I should!), but within a few minutes several things sprang to mind. Do you set monthly goals? Anything you want to accomplish this summer? Or this month? I’d love know…. Mine are all basic life kind of stuff, so not super sexy, but you have to have your foundation in order to move on to the bigger and better stuff, right?
Here are my top three goals for the summer… Continue reading
Father’s Day is just 11 days away so I wanted to share a few ideas on what to get those special guys in your lives (Dad, Hubz, Gramps, Jon Hamm). Here, 15+ gifts for the guys you love. Continue reading
