Palm Springs Diary: August 2016
the style sauce palm desert fashion blog free people

Palm Springs is always one of my favorite places. I love getting away to the desert for no reason at all to unwind and get some sun. I usually avoid the desert in the Summer because of the beating heat, but my sister has never been there so we decided to go for a weekend a couple weeks back. 

I stayed at The Ace Hotel and Swim Club , like almost always, which is great for just relaxing. It was nice to shoot some pics, sip on cocktails, swim, and bask in the 108 degree rays. 

What to wear in the desert? Well, when it's this hot, the answer is not much. It was mostly bikinis and minimal dresses/ skirt and top combos that won't stick to you. At night temperatures dip but it's still 90 so need for any heavy layers or anything, ha. Whatever isn't fussy or  does not require too much thought is usually the best. 

Shop some of my favorites looks below for a weekend in the desert!

Since I've been traveling, like, a TON, one of my favorite essential is these Sudio Wireless Headphones - the Iphone 7 came out today and as all of you know, it does NOT have a headphone jack. Fortunately, these beautifully designed Swedish earbuds from Sudio are bluetooth only and come with a great leather pouch to match . They're only around $110 dollars  - but you can shop them with code THESTYLESAUCE for 15% off. I have the Vasa Bla model and LOVE them- the quality is excellent and I love how pretty they look in my ears. They've been great travel companions.

What are some of your favorite things to do and places to stay when in Palm Springs? Would love to hear your recommendations for next time I decide to visit the desert.

Fall 16 Wardrobe Staple: The Silk Bomber
The Style Sauce satin bomber street style fashion blogger

If you're like me, you've already been planning your Fall wardrobe and you're SO ready to break it out (coat season just get here already!). I always comb the magazines and my usual online publications early to know what's coming- and it's super fun for me to pick out the trends from the shows at NYFW, LFW, PFW, and MFW that I personally think will be huge for the next year (I'm like almost ALWAYS right, btw. ;)) It seems that every August I go through this end of Summer in between season struggle, especially since it's always the hottest in Los Angeles August, September, and October. Enter "transition pieces". This is always a big fashion challenge because it can be so weird to mix Summer things with Fall pieces that are heavy fabrics like velvet, leather, and cashmere. 

Here's where the silk bomber jacket comes in. It's already every where for Summer, but plan on this piece being even bigger for Fall. The cherry on the top of goodness with this wardrobe staple is the fact that it's light weight enough to layer over a flowy dress for the chic-est end of Summer look, yet you'll still be able to wear this bad boy over a sweater with a pair of your favorite jeans and a boot when it's freezing (aka 60 degrees in L.A., ha). 

Another reason I love this trend is that it's something that all body shapes and skin tones look good in. It really is universally approachable. Below I'm picking out for you some of my favorites for all budgets. What do you think of the satin bomber trend? Let me know in the comments below.

Where to find: 7 of L.A.'s Best Walls
The Style Sauce Abbot Kinney Rainbow Street Style

I get a lot of questions about my blog, but today I'm addressing one of the most popular ones which is "Where do you take your pictures?". To start, finding locations for photos can be BRUTAL. For anyone who's ever worked in the production or entertainment industry, they can tell you that there is entire job descriptions assigned to "location scouting".  Basically, it's somebody's entire job in real life to simply find great places to shoot things at- and it's super important! While I live in Venice, it's obviously easiest for me to shoot my blog photos near my house, but I start to run out of ideas and spots. Here I'm spilling the beans with you about some of my favorite walls in Los Angeles for all of the bloggers, aspiring bloggers, photographers, and pretty much anyone coming to L.A. that wants to take some pictures with cool backgrounds.

Consider it your cheat sheet to an Instagram-worthy fashionable day in Los Angeles.

1+2) Are the rainbow and black and white walls featured below.

As these walls have just been painted in the past month or so and don't have a real name yet, they're sure to have one soon as they're a great place to shoot. I love that one side is rainbow and the other a stark contrast of black and white. Two locations in one! Caution- you have to walk through some sort of private dirt parking lot to get to it, and it says "Private Property". If you get arrested, definitely do not say The Style Sauce sent you ;)

3) The Paul Smith Wall

Ok, so this is the insanely popular wall that is pink and literally everyone has taken photos on it from Sincerely Jules to Ohh Couture (two of my favorite bloggers, btw). Anyways, where is it? Well, you can find it on Melrose on the side of the Paul Smith store. Go forth and fulfill all your pink fantasies.

Address: 8221 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood

 

 4) #LOVEWALL #BLEEDINGHEARTS

This one is right off of Abbot Kinney, so naturally I've taken a photo in front of it, but let me tell you it's QUITE popular! I was literally fighting off tourists for a spot in front of it which was incredibly comical to my crew and I when we were trying to get a snap. It's right on the side of what is now Greenleaf Venice.

Address: 1239 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, CA 90291

Me literally LOLing whilst trying to get a snap amongst stubborn tourists on the Love Wall, off of Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach. Not pictured: my friends laughing at me.

5) "Made in L.A." Wall

If you truly want to tell people you're made in L.A.- hit up this increasingly popular wall in West Hollywood. 

Address: 8025 Melrose Ave. (at N Laurel Avenue), West Hollywood

 

6) Shepard Fairey's District La Brea Mural

At the corner of La Brea and 2nd Street where the parking lies for the hip District La Brea Shopping district, there's an amazing and colorful Shepard Fairey mural. Part of it says "High Time" and then there's the word Peace and what looks like lotus flowers on a bright pink background. Check it out:

7) UniWolfCheetah

This combination of a unicorn wolf and cheetah is also poised just behind Abbot Kinney, and perhaps the most famous fashion blogger of them all - Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad- has a rendition of it in her very own home. Of course it needed to make the list. 

Address: 1429 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA
