I simply adore getting packages of new clothes.  I especially adore said packages when they happen to be delivered on my birthday and be full of Michael Kors Spring ’15 pieces!  This white blouse is one of those pieces and I’m so excited to wear it all Spring.  The lace detail and pleating in the back make it a bit more unique than a basic white tee but equally as casual with skinny jeans.

Keep checking back, I will be styling more pieces in the next few weeks!

As always, thanks for reading!

Happy Wednesday, Darlings!  This week I celebrated my birthday here in Palm Springs.  It was such a great day of relaxing coffee by the pool, a visit to Moorten Botanical Gardens, and a bike ride to lunch at Native Foods (UH-Maze-ing).  The most anticipated part of the celebration was dinner and drinks at my favorite PS spot, The Parker.  This green dress was an obvious choice when I saw it a few weeks ago and I loved the bright color and unique hem.

Happy Sunday, Darlings!  It’s been a whirlwind of a year thus far getting settled in my new place (more on that is on the horizon) and keeping up with the busy time at work.  I’ve been meaning to get my NYE look up for a few days now but time keeps escaping me!

We did a mellow NYE with a 4 course dinner at Palm Springs eatery, Tinto which is inside of the uber colorful Saguaro Hotel.  The food was divine and the newly renovated space is perfect for large groups.

I decided I didn’t want a cliche NYE look of short, tight, and sparkly but struggled to find something that fit that bill in the desert.  I opted for this H&M dress (that was only $29.95!) and a pair of heels that I received last year for my birthday and loved the effortless feel!

I hope you all had a wonderful NYE and relaxing start to 2015!  I personally enjoyed a New Year’s Day of football, Bloody Marys, and Netflix…pure perfection!

As I indulged in such a mellow day I felt sharing a casual look was only fitting!  This stripe top has quickly become a wardrobe staple for me since finding it at H&M!  I love the versatility of such a simple and classic piece!

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had an amazing holiday full of family, friends, and fun!  I am finally winding down from a whirlwind month between Thanksgiving and Christmas that has kept me from blogging as much as I would have liked.

I started my Christmas in Palm Springs enjoying a beautiful, warm day and then headed home to Lake Arrowhead where it was FREEZING!!!!  Thankfully I planned ahead and layered my look for the day (and warmed up with some yummy Egg Nog!).

How was your Christmas?

XO,

Niki

A great brunch and a great outfit should always go hand in hand as far as I’m concerned!  Summer brunch looks are so simple to me: floral, white, linen.  Trying to find a chic, comfortable, and WARM option for cooler Fall days has always been challenging.  I put this cozy look together Thanksgiving weekend for brunch at a fun spot, Pinocchio’s.  I’m slightly obsessed with this oversized sweater from H&M and have already bought it in 2 colors (for $19.95 they are a bargain!).

We bloggers sure do love our coffee so it was a natural choice for Brooke, the blogger behind The Trapped Fashionista, and I to have a little coffee date at L’Atelier Cafe in Downtown Palm Springs.

L’Atelier is tres chic with sidewalk bistro tables, eclectic furniture, and delish cappuccinos.  A stop into this spot has quickly become a bit of a day off ritual.  What are some of your day off rituals?

I am so excited that it is finally sweater weather here in Palm Springs!  I picked up this cropped cashmere sweater from Michael Kors a few weeks ago and have been keeping my fingers crossed for a cool enough day to wear it!  I’m typically not a fan of the cropped styles I have been gravitating towards lately but this sweater is amaze!

I paired the cashmere goodness with skinny jeans and my tried and true Michael Kors cage heels for dinner at Birba.

Birba is hands down one of my favorite spots for dinner in Palm Springs!  Think outdoor garden with sleek tables, modern chairs, market lights in the ficus, and firepits galore.  Oh, and the food!  My favorite on the menu is a white pizza with fried egg on top (foodgasm!) but if that’s not quite your thing they offer ricotta gnocchi, a variety of pizzas, and a rotating seasonal menu to always keep diners intrigued.  A serious must try if you find your self in my fair city!

As always, thanks for reading!

After a long first few weeks at my new job it was finally time for DATE NIGHT! (insert jumping up and down here)  I love getting dressed up for a night out and could not wait to wear this new dress I found on my lunch break at H&M.  The dress is really feminine with lace detail and keyhole so I wanted to edge it up a bit.  It has finally cooled off enough in the evenings to wear my beloved moto jacket from last year and these MK heels are a perfect balance.

We ended up having dinner at a favorite of our here in Palm Springs, Hacienda Cantina.  There are a few different rooms to dine in, all offering a unique ambiance.  We opted for the bar/lounge space and were seated in front of the oversized stone fireplace (how romantic!).  Of course we had to order the to-die-for corn and goat cheese tamale and strawberry/jalepeno margaritas.

After our divine dinner we took an Uber (no drinking and driving here folks!) to Bootlegger Tiki, a speakeasy style tiki bar owned by a friend of ours.  I’m seriously obsessed with their craft cocktails and intimate space, it’s perfect for a nightcap any night of the week.

Thanks as always for reading!
