As some of you may know, I was in Palm Springs last week (it feels like forever ago!) on a press trip. A and I decided to take advantage of the sun and headed down a few days early. There’s something about the desert that’s so mysterious and otherworldly… I love it. I’ve actually been coming to Palm Springs since I was a kid when my parents lived in LA. There are some pretty awesome photos of my dad in hot pink swimming trunks holding me as a little kid (sorry dad 🙂 ).

As I grew, it became the perfect getaway from Vancouver – not too far and with enough sun to satiate my eternal need for heat… at least for a few months. Anyway, I digress. Basically, I was just thrilled to be shooting in the desert and I’m even more thrilled with how these shots came out.

The idea behind this outfit and the shoot was juxtaposition. I love the soft and romantic femininity of a silk dress paired with heavy, tough Balenciaga boots. It’s what I strive for with almost every outfit.

Hope you’re all having a great week so far!

    How gorgeous! I love the juxtaposition too! I’m such a fan of masculine meets feminine and I have knack for also trying to replicate it on the daily.
    Well done.

    Fabulous! Couldn’t agree more about the balance of soft feminine mixed with edgy tough. Keep on with your bad self girl, killin’ it!

    Yes, always love a contrast look. Makes the look so interesting. I love it and the boots are sick!

    Such a cool look, Jill, the floral dress and chunky boots combo is a killer! Loving the desert as backdrop too, the light is just perfect.
    I can feel the summer through the lens 🙂

    Serious question… do you just walk around holding up the dress the entire day? I feel like it wouldnt look good otherwise cause then you can barely see the boots!

      Lol no! It still looks great down, and it’s not too long that you can see the boots 🙂

    How is the sizing/fit of those boots? And where did you get them (in Canada)? I’ve been eyeing them for sometime but haven’t been able to locate what I think would be my size! I’ve also heard they’re uncomfortable! Your input would be greatly appreciated 🙂
