Ruffles in the Desert

by Shalice Noel






Thinking to give ourselves a little vacation mixed with desert air, we attempted 12 hours in Palm Springs. Well, two hours later we (being 4 adults and 4 children) stiffly rolled out of one SUV. At that point, the Siberian Desert even sounded good. The kids frolicked, the adults laughed with delight, and yes, the scenery was breathtaking. I think I even managed to nab a picture. Together with the breakfast burritos and ricotta pancakes at Kings Highway, it was an all-around success. And lest you wonder, I wore blush, spring’s hottest hue. I really should limit my purchasing of blush items but it’s so flattering to most skin tones – mine being olive- that I don’t see an end in sight.

One more very lovely blush piece Shalice! (Hey it rhymes!!)

You won’t believe this but long ago (1999-2001–pre kiddos) my husband and I lived in Saudi Arabia for two years. Oh! What a scorcher!! But we’d go camping out on the beaches of the Red Sea and snorkel for a cooling relief. Oh, memories….that was the best part of living in the desert. Other than that, holy hot!

My total blush count this spring is four: a sweater and flats (featured on my blog) and a suede skirt (on IG) and 3/4 length tee (not featured on IG yet, but coming;). Yes to blush! Right?! I agree with you: it works for everyone!

Lovely, lovely dress.

Love, Ann

It does rhyme, haha! 4 is pretty impressive. And how cool to live in Saudi –
I’d love to visit the Red Sea! Lucky girl 🙂

Beautiful! That’s all I have to say….
Except that blush is not a great color on me 🙁 I have very pale skin! (hasn’t stopped me from buying it though!)
