I’m one of the lucky few who have had the same best friend for my entire life. We grew up in a tiny town in Canada and shared the same baby-sitter who would walk the two of us around town in the same baby carriage. Thirty-nine years later, we are still as close as we've always been, even though we are now living in separate countries.
Several years ago we hatched a plan to do a yearly girls getaway and soon we’ll be jetting off to Palm Springs for fun in the sun, hiking, lounging pool-side, and of course, shopping. But before we are desert-bound, I am in desperate need of shedding my tired winter wardrobe and getting a few key summer pieces to kick start the season ahead.
I’m already daydreaming of packing my suitcase with these essentials to ease me into vacation mode with my bestie and everything can be found on Shop at Home, where I found coupon codes and can earn cash back for so many of my favorite online retailers:
1. Joie Kaylure Print Silk Romper
We’ll definitely be doing some sightseeing while we’re away and this romper is so easy to throw on and look pulled together. I love the subtle pattern and can either dress it up with some heels or down with some cute sandals.
2. Vince Camuto Panama Hat
Every summer I get a new hat to protect my fair skin from the sun. This is my go-to pick for the season ahead. It’s a classic style with a cute nautical rope that sets it apart from the more traditional ribbon.
3. Clarins Sunscreen Care Oil Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Protecting your skin is a must and I love that this spray does double duty to protect both your skin and your hair. It’s easier to apply than a lotion and is perfect for those hard to reach places.
4. Chloe Marcie Crossbody Bag
Chloe can do no wrong in my book and I love this perfectly sized cross-body bag in the bright sunshine-y yellow. Yellow surprisingly acts as a great neutral and works with most colors. It is also so much more fun than basic black or brown.
5. Zimmermann Frill Bikini
My Australian friend introduced me to Zimmermann last summer and now I’m obsessed. The details in their dresses and suits are so well thought out and sophisticated. The ruffle and polka dots are playful yet still stylish and will look perfect while sipping cocktails poolside.
6. Oliver Peoples West Cabrillo Sunglasses
Inspired by the laid back California coast, these sunnies would look stunning with a little tan.
7. Mara Hoffman Dress
Mara Hoffman’s patterns are fresh and fun and I can picture sitting under the stars dining al fresco in this breezy dress, paired with some bangles and a great necklace.
8. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
Everyone has been recommending this book to me and I can’t wait to crack it open once I get poolside. I’m a pretty fast reader so I can pass it along to my bff once I’m done and we can have our own private book club, with a bottle of wine, of course.
9. Oasis Studded Ankle-Wrap Flat Thong Sandal
Inspired by Valentino, these studded flats give just enough shine to an otherwise basic summer staple.
10. Dior Addict Lip Polish
This is the perfect gloss that is a primer and polish in one. You definitely don’t want to wear a lot of make up when soaking up the desert sun so this does the trick to make you look just a little more polished than usual.
