in my bag: palm springs

in my bag // smitten studioI’m already planning my wardrobe for a Palm Springs retreat next week. I’ll be heading there with a big group of talented ladies for some fun in the sun. My bags are packed and I’m ready for a weekend in the desert heat.

my bags are packed – on Coco + Kelley

While Cassandra is Safari – ing in Africa she asked me to do a little guest post over on Coco + Kelley and since I am also off galavanting around in New Zealand, I figure why not stick with the travel theme and give a little peek into what made its way into my suitcase.

While I was searching for a new bathing suit, (I mean it is summer over here after all and I’m pretty sure that qualifies as a good excuse for a new one) I came across so many that I loved, I thought I would show a few alternates in case you are planning a little warm getaway or a tropical spring break vaca of your own.

Pattern spy: tribal inspired geometrics

pattern spy tribal inspired geometrics I can’t describe this pattern spy in any other way then umm… my favorite. :) From the vintage tribal kilim pillow to the more modern interpretations of Navajo patterns on the dinnerware and Mara Hoffman tank, I am sold. Oh, and that color palette is all kinds of amazing too!
