The Flag Is Raised! | Kelly Golightly

Welcome! I’m the queen of the caftan, temptress of the tunic. In my spare time I frolic with flamingos and bounce with my beloved Fred Baby between Beverly Hills and Palm Springs (#palmvivant) and my trusty window seat to destinations yet explored. And no matter the country or the time, every day I raise the flag to signal that happy hour has arrived. Won’t you join me for a daily cocktail of glamour, style and adventure? #theflagisraised

Who is the Golightly girl?

She’s adventurous and kind, charming and chock full of surprises. She’s stylish and sweet and loves road trips on a whim and decorating her Christmas tree with bubblegum-pink bulbs. She makes her own fun and dazzles and delights in everything she does. She knows the best accessory is a smile. She gets just as excited about the newest “it” bag as she does a delicious new book…or cupcake flavor. She has a twinkle in her eye and a spring in her step and knows a little style goes a long way: from getting dressed in the morning (or afternoon!) to decorating her manse to hosting stylish soirees – she’s mastered the element of surprise.
