Come With Me On A Sunny And Dreamy Retro Holiday In Palm Springs With The Photographer Bersa

As the rain pours down today in Orange County I dream of driving an hour and a half to old school Palm Springs for a sunny holiday.
Come with me to see the sights, my dear friend.


What better photographer than Bersa to capture our good times in the desert.


Let's take a little dip in the pool.


Then, let's get all dolled up.



How about taking in a little champagne brunch?

And, a little retail therapy afterwards. Why, of course!


I'd love to check out a home tour of Sinatra's cool cat pad.


Maybe we could find a bowling alley?


Or, just take a walk on the park.

Surely, we would find some amazing vintage finds here.

What would you like to do today, doll? What outfit calls to you?
Thanks for joining me on a dreamy and sunny Palm Springs retro holiday. It was a dream come true...

xo,
Christina

Absolutely adore that yellow floral dress! I swear I was born in the wrong era, I dream of lovely full skirts and dresses, gloves and a seemingly gentler way of life...

The Nine Lives of Ruby Leonne said...

I enjoy your photo story. It has a modern Doris Day feel. You can mesh many vintage items together and still pull off a contempory look. Nicely done.
