Been hopping around a bit lately – back east, then back west, around the Bay and beyond. I’ve been pretty focused on fog-dodging – that San Francisco fog is one aggressive beast this time of year, hence the lack of SF-centric photos. They tell me summer comes in September; in the meantime, I’m taking matters into my own hands and sun-chasing.
The dude and I have just a couple of days for a little celebratory getaway, so Palm Springs was an easy choice as our destination since it’s only a 90-minute flight away. We’ve never been, but I’m pretty excited about a little poolside lounging and good old-fashioned R&R. Also on the agenda are some traipsing around in the desert, a visit to the spa and Rat Pack-style cocktails. The forecast is calling for temperatures in the 80s and sunshine, so I’m packing accordingly, focusing on airy fabrics and pool wear. Can’t wait!

While walking down Haight Street and wearing these pants the other day, a dog came running up to me (and Milo, who was accompanying me per usual) to greet us. His owner – who looked as if he’d perhaps come to Haight-Ashbury in the Summer of Love and never left – trailed behind him. “Sorry!” he said. “Timmy really likes purple.” I’d never gotten fashion feedback from a canine before, but there’s a first time for everything, right?
Side note: This is obviously my third post in a row with this Muse anorak – be sure to enter the $150 Muse gift certificate giveaway!

When the jumpsuit/onesie trend came back around a few years ago, it drew some serious skepticism, but not from this camp. Here’s why: I’m a big fan of anything that makes the day just a tad bit easier, and like dresses, jumpsuits mean at least one less decision while getting dressed in the morning (without the dress’s incompatibility with riding bikes/sitting cross-legged/doing cartwheels/the like). Plus, I dig pretty much anything reminiscent of the ’70s – wonder if our ’70s counterparts were trying to minimize their decision-making when they came up with the whole thing?
