“hotel California”

I’ve been dreaming of California lately.  Maybe it’s the oppressive heat, maybe it’s the lack of ocean, or maybe I’m just ready to get out of town!  For reasons unknown, I have always had an obsession with Palm Springs.  I have never been there and I don’t particularly like the desert, but something about it sucks me in.  I think it’s the Jetsons cartoon style of architecture.  It’s futuristic and retro at the same time.  I’ve been trying to convince my hubby that we must move immediately out there and restore a ranch house to it’s fabulous 50s glory!  He’s less than enthused about this idea since he prefers contemporary furnishings, but I’m sure we can come to some kind of agreement.

I’m dreaming of something like this…

There is a retro wall in front of Forward Foods that reminds me of my California dream.  I love it so.  I decided to throw on my favorite ripped up jeans and live my California dream.

In my head that is…

Wearing in Wonderland – Old Navy top, Rag & Bone/JEAN the skinny in destroyed, shoes c/o Nine West ‘Leggy’ wedge, Madewell silver/gold necklace, CC Skye revolver necklace, Karen Walker #6 sunglasses, J.Crew cuff, J.Crew ‘Edie’ bag
