Palm Springs Recap

I am back from a whirlwind weekend trip to Palm Springs to celebrate my bestie Lindsay's big 3-0.  We had a blast catching up and sunning by the pool, and I did not want the weekend to end.  Instead of staying at a hotel, we opted to rent a house with an incredible pool and great views of the desert mountains:

We accessorized the pool with a giant blow-up swan and water balls that glowed in the dark- obvious necessities for a birthday party in Palm.

The whole group lounging on our first day:

Friday night we went out to eat at the original El Marisol, a fun Mexican restaurant with a great patio in downtown Palm.   How amazing are Lindsay's Jimmy Choo tassel heels?! Of course they are now sold out:

{Here's a similar option to Lindsay's heels.  I am wearing a Fringe Mesh Crop Top from Nordstrom, and my heels are by Shoe Mint}

Saturday, we did some more lounging and cocktail drinking. Surprise! ;)

{A few poolside essentials- peanut butter M&M's, vodka soda, and Babe Walker's new book, Psychos}

Saturday night we went to dinner at Lulu's (amazing food!) and the Hard Rock Hotel for drinks afterwards.  I had so much fun with these pretty girls!

The only girl missing was my niece, Lily.  I got this picture sent to me on Saturday of Lily rockin her best Palm Springs getup.  I can't stand the cuteness!

It was the perfect weekend getaway and I loved catching up with my girl for her b-day festivities.  Linds, I love you more than you'll ever know!

Take me back!  I'm not ready to face Monday just yet.  

PS- One of my blog sponsors, Fish Indie, was kind enough to interview me yesterday on their blog.  I discussed what led me to start blogging, what I love most about the blogging community, and a few favorite Etsy shops.  


  1. Looks so fun! I am especially loving that giant swan. Such a keeper.
