Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today I am coming to you from California! We arrived in LA on Saturday afternoon and yesterday we left for Palm Springs. On our way out to the desert, we met up with Shauna from Lipgloss and Lace and her husband! It was so fun to finally meet Shauna in person — especially since we have been following each other for so long. We have such a wonderful community of bloggers, and I love the support that this group provides. I wish we lived closer, I just know we would be the best of friends! I think our husbands even hit it off, too 😉

When we decided to spend a night in Los Angeles before heading out to Palm Springs, I knew we had to find this pink wall. Not only is this wall a blogger’s dream, but as a lover of anything pink, I was obviously excited! I wish we had something like this in DC, it truly makes the perfect background.

A little about this look: I wore this as my travel day look on Saturday. When traveling, comfort is key {especially when it involves a 5+ hour flight!} I recently bought THESE jeans and I knew they would be a comfortable pant to travel in. Normally, I’m not a huge fan of traveling in jeans, but these are more of a boyfriend style and they are definitely more “broken in”. I went with my regular size because I did want them a little more on the baggy/ boyfriend fit side. I would suggest sizing down if you wanted them to be more fitted. Best part: they are only $88! 

Hope you all have a wonderful start to the week! I am going to attempt to not get burned this week. Lots of sunscreen, hats and shade in my future!
