Loving Right Now..The Denim Dress


I just got back from a weekend at the pretty Parker Palm Springs. I've always wanted to visit this gem and finally got to see why it's one of a kind. I can't wait to share all about it in an upcoming post. When I was there I stopped at the Trina Turk flagship store in Palm Springs and picked up this little shift. I was desperate for something light to wear and this dress was so easy, cool and could transition from day dress/coverup, to night with ankle wrap sandals and some vintage earrings from the 60's like I brought with me. Plus it has pockets and that usually seals it for me. I bought mine at Trina, but it looks like Nordstrom has more inventory of it right now. It runs large, so I bought a 2 and I usually wear a 6. It falls straight and looks better a little short. (Top photo I am wearing it on the way out to dinner- below on the way to the pool.)




I'm still loving the denim trend and hope to wear it into fall and winter. Other cute denim shifts for this transitional time are this chambray shirtdress from J.Crew, a darker also pocketed version from Zara, this classic shape from Club Monaco, this relaxed version from Banana, and I love this long sleeve version from Gap which could be cute with boots and a colorful scarf come fall. This more unique denim dress from Frame, and this cute long sleeve one from Hudson are on my fall possibilities list. All of these could work with a long sleeve tee layered under in cooler weather too. I've bought a lot of dresses this summer that I plan to make work in cooler weather with booties and jackets and sweaters on top.


I'm looking forward to cooler weather are you?

Back soon with more Palm Springs stuff!

  1. "Excellente idée" to wear your summer dresses also in winter ! I'm going to buy the version from Zara. What about shoes ? I have no idea.
    Nice dress and pictures.
    Bonne journée de France

    1. Thank you Anne-Laure! The Zara one is so cute...I just think espadrilles, wedges and perhaps booties in the winter or cute sneakers for casual?
