It was hailing in Vancouver today

But I’m going to ignore that fact and reminisce about California.


Because I left my heart in the desert.


I love that it can be 8 billion degrees but there will still be snow on the mountains.


Another place I’d like to reminisce about? Turkey.


That’s where I found this shirt/dress (what is with all the hippy dippy clothes I bought in Turkey? I must have been having a moment.)


But back to California. Palm Springs (where we stayed during Coachella) was far quirkier than I imagined it would be — more art galleries, more midcentury modern architecture, more aging hippies. I can’t wait to go back. Especially because I miss the palm trees.

P.S. I like when you like the Anthology on Facebook.

    haha I totally know how you feel. It’s days like this when it rains or hails or is super cold and windy that I look at pictures of Cabo and wish I was back there again. Sigh. That dress is lovely on you though :)

    That ‘aging hippy’ on the cover of Palm Springs Life has ridoculous abs… Washboard you may say. Am I jealous? JES

    cute hippie dress!

    Nicole — Yes! Cabo would be amazing too. All I need are two things: sunshine and palm trees. Is that too much to ask?

    K-L — Jealous of her abs and jealous of her awesome lace outfit. How sweet would it be to find that in a vintage shop?

    Larissa — Of course! You’d love Palm Springs. Almost as much as you’d love Coachella.

    Kampiscines — Thank you! I’m realizing more and more that my inner hippie is an outer hippie too.

    Ah, you went to Coachella, Kelsey?! I so wanted to go. In fact, I should have went and we could have met up – Palm Springs isn’t too far from where I live!! :)

    Aw you look so amazing. I’m so glad you aren’t cropping your face off in these pictures. You are seriously stunning and should show it off to the world!

    I’m still so jealous of your Coachella adventures! So fun!

    Couture Carrie — Thank you! I wish I bought it in other colours. Maybe I’ll just have to go back to Turkey.

    Cafe Fashionista — Oooooh man! I would have loved to have met up. Next year!

    Melissa — You are tooooooo sweet. Thank you!
