I waffled back and forth on what to title this post: '60s vibes, Palm Springs vibes, late summer vibes. In the end, it's all about vibes! My favorite outfits are ones that have a strong sense of vibes. I love referential fashion - clothing that reminds you of something else, whether that's a person, place, or time. This outfit reminds me of Twiggy, of the girls I imagine were in magazines when my dad was in high school, of the bold retro colors all over Palm Springs. It reminds me of summertime with its punchy yellow and breezy chambray.
I couldn't help but feel happy the first time I wore it, so I made sure to wear it again on a day I wasn't feeling too hot. Turns out there's really something to that feel good, dress better thing! ;)
Apologies for the quick post today! I wrote this the Friday night before my Palm Springs adventure started. Be sure to follow along on Instagram as I explore my favorite place I'd never been!
