I had so much fun putting together last Friday’s Weekend reading + a few bits and pieces together that I think I might just make it a weekly thing. What do you guys think?
This weekend the hubs and I are running away for a little getaway to celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary. Palm Springs is one of those magical places that’s close enough to drive to in less than two hours but feels like it’s 1,000 miles away from the everyday stresses of real life. Palm Springs has a very rich, glamorous history – I found this great Vanity Fair article from 1998 (!!) It’s essentially a tour of the old Palm Springs with Sonny Bono as your tour guide. It’s not a short article, but it’s a great read – slightly dated but chock full of fun facts.
1. Staying with the Palm Springs theme, this beautiful wedding set in the Frederick Loewe Estate is full of little details that just knocked my socks off. Case in point: the gold “love” balloons. I adore the shot of the groom’s tie, shoes and Paul Smith socks. As a tradition I always get hubs Paul Smith socks as part of his gift for special occasions. Well, that and because he hasn’t bought new socks himself since 2006.
2. I guess I’m feeling extra romantic this week so I geeked out and created a “Couples” Pinterest board.
3. Anyone who ever visited Diana Moss’ expertly curated blog, Miss Moss is familiar with her Nice Things series. This week she really outdid herself by also color coordinating the roundup which includes that dreamy pink ACNE moto-jacket amongst other things.
4. I purchased that big ol’ floppy J.Crew hat for laying out by the pool (more than 5 minutes exposed to the sun turns me a very unappealing shade of red). It also happens to be on sale at J.Crew stores, I think I paid $18 for it – not sure why it’s not marked down in the online store.
Well, that’s it kids – hope everyone has a fun, relaxing first weekend of Summer!
