A few weeks ago I traveled to a magical place in the desert with 22 of my closest girlfriends.
The Saguaro Palm Springs is a former Holiday Inn that was renovated earlier this year.
The physical improvements to the hotel were minimal—the most stunning change is a new 14-shade color palette inspired by desert flora.
Say what you will about the decor (someone on Curbed said it was “like they puked up Skittles”) but being in a place so saturated with color made me so incredibly happy. Or maybe it was being with 22 of my closest girlfriends—tough to know for sure!
Everywhere I looked there was a color combination that thrilled me. (Purple and lime green! Pink and yellow!)
Each surface changed in tone throughout the day, depending on the light.
Even the landscaping matched perfectly.
So I wanted to match, too. For the entire weekend, I was determined to stick with the palette. From my toes…
To my suit…
To my shoes…
To a dress that my mom made for the occasion. (Thanks, mom!)
Soon I started seeing rainbows everywhere.
And another was this beautiful bracelet made by my friends Trish and Laura Kate, who own Kindred Stones. It features the zodiac birthstones of all my closest girlfriends.
And wouldn’t you know it… it was rainbow, too.
