Sunday Styles no. 4

So, if you checked out my last post, you know that I'm in Palm Springs this weekend. I know, I know. I was so excited about the autumn coming and then I decide to head to desert country. To be fair it was a gift (big thanks to you-know-who-you-are) and I was in desperate need of some R&R. I was running myself into the ground. (Think lack of sleep, lack of fun, lack of time with friends, and a distinct lack in time with that guy I live with...I think he's my husband, but it was hard to say for a while since we would only really see each other for an hour or two a day.)

Cut to Le Parker Meridien Palm Springs...my goodness. I don't even know what to say. This place hits all my aesthetic fancies. I was trying to explain it to Charles earlier, while we were bobbing in a saltwater hot tub. (Yes, I know, my life is so hard right now.) I described it as "a cross between Arabian Nights, India, British Royalty, and French Country." In short, I'm in love.

Add to that 3 pools (including one saltwater pool) and a few hot tubs (including that saltwater hot tub we were bobbing in) and a maze of intimate little pathways that lead you to oversized chess boards, vast fields to play croquet or petanque, fire pits, hammocks, and all kinds of other delights. All of this in the dry, desert heat and you've got some real magic. So, why ruin all the magic by stressing over what you're wearing?

Today's style is all about poolside living...

No need to stress! You're going in the pool anyway!

This outfit is perfect for this kind of place. A men's chambray shirt is great buttoned up (for the proper ladies) or open (for the shameless folks - a.k.a me), a bathing suit (for swimming - duh), a sun hat to protect your face from the rays and sandals. Super easy. I'm not into wearing things I'm afraid to ruin if I'm going to be in and out of water all day long. Again, the goal - little to no stress.

So, there it is. I've got another half day to enjoy before heading back to LA and mentally preparing myself for the upcoming work week, so excuse me for making this short, but I gotta run. There are pools to wade around and hot tubs to meditate in. Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday! Wish you were here! Sending you lots of love! xo!
