These are my favourite new summer sandals… I could not stop wearing them in Palm Springs. They are super comfy and make any piece look chic + effortless (no, they are not paying me to say this πŸ™‚Β ). I threw them on with a pair of jeans, tee + a cozy sweater for dinner at the Ace hotel one evening. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the King’s Highway diner, but the food was actually amazing. I would highly recommend it when in Palm Springs!

Do you guys have any other Palm Springs restaurant recommendations?

PS These sandals fit large so order down. I am a 7.5 and I ordered a 7!

    I’m too aggressive with my shoes. I feel like I’d break these. I don’t have any sandals in my unintentional capsule wardrobe right now but I do believe in their importance – heeled and flat.

    I was thinking about purchasing this cardigan and wondered how it wears? Any pilling? It is a splurge so I want to make sure it is worth it. πŸ™‚

      I’ve had it for quite a while and it’s still in good condition. There is a little pilling, but I’ve yet to find a sweater that doesn’t pill at all!

      Hope that’s helpful!

    I love this outfit and our blog! I’m trying to figure out sizing for the cardigan. Did you take your normal size or size up? Thank you!

      Thanks Lauren! I actually sized down because it can be a bit overwhelming, especially because I am a little bit petite. Hope that’s helpful!
