Red and Off-the-Shoulder

Jen Hawkins wearing off-the-shoulder dress on Palms to Pines lifestyle blog
This weekend, we loved the warmer weather and lived it up in the sun!  We had out first proper beach day with a big crew, and it felt like the kick-off of summer.  But then we got on a plane and came to Utah, where it’s cold and rainy but I get to snuggle my nieces and nephew.  Fair trade, I think ;).  This off-the-shoulder dress is easy to throw on, comfy, but feels cute enough…

Blue & White

Jen Hawkins - California street style on Palms to Pines blog
Do you ever find yourself buying the same thing over and over without realizing it?  Lately for me it’s been anything blue, white, or striped.  And what I think that means is that I’m ready for a nautical vacation ;).  I love this jumpsuit from Urban Outfitters – it’s so fun for summer!

Favorite things in Yellow

Guys, I’m really into this shade of mustard yellow – I keep finding myself buying things this color over and over.  Like these sandals, this tunic, this comfy tee, and this dress.  So when I saw this dress by House of Harlow at the Revolve Social Club, I had to snag it.

Spring Layering | Embroidered Denim

Palms to Pines lifestyle blog | layering embroidered denim
This time of year, it’s all about layering.  It will be hot one second, and cold the next.  And you can always count on it being chilly at night, even in the desert!  One of my favorite spring-y things to layer with this year is a good embroidered denim!

Astrological Signs | Cheatsheet

Ok, so I like the idea of astrology, and I at least know what MY sign is when people ask.  But I always get nervous if the conversation goes further than that!  Especially when people get into what other signs your compatible with, or explaining behavior or events based on someone’s Zodiac sign.  So, if you’re like me and want to feel somewhat cool when these conversations come up, I found a couple cheat sheets!…

Easy Breezy | Floral Wrap Dress

The weather is finally turning warm again here, and it feels like all is right in the world.  I wasn’t feeling well this week, so on the warmest day I spent the morning at the pool with old friends, then put on this breezy dress and headed to Wolf Camp to get some work done.  I had a meeting with the photographer Camila, who is new to the area and so excited about all the…

Running around Venice | SWF Boutique

Recently, I spent an afternoon running around Venice with photographer John Schell and my bestie Sydney Wheeler.  I love getting this crew together, although sometimes it’s hard to actually take photos because we can’t stop the laughing ;).  I wore pieces from a brand I love – SWF Boutique.  We took most of the photos along the Venice canals, which is a magical must-see place in LA if you’ve never been.  Take a sunset walk there…

One Dress, Two Ways

It’s that time of year where you wake up in the morning and wonder if it’s going to be Spring or Winter weather.  I have been on the hunt for transitional pieces that I can layer when it’s cold in the mornings, but strip down if it heats up!  This comfy dress can be worn casual on it’s on, or dressed up a bit if you need to wear it out.  I’ve also layered it…

Spring Neutrals

Out of laziness, I’m super stoked that the weather is turning into the kind that I can just throw on an easy dress and go.  This dress is easy and comfy, but still gives ya the “buttoned-up” look (pun intended, ha!)  Does this mean it’s officially Spring?  I hope so… Flowy Shirt Dress | Snakeskin Mules | Sunnies | Gold Cuff Rings Flowy Shirt Dress | Snakeskin Mules | Sunnies | Gold Cuff Rings xx Jen

Denim Dreams

Denim Flare jumpsuit on Jen Hawkins | Palms to Pines
Why do I feel like I can do anything when I’m wearing this suit?  Like I’m one of Charlie’s Angels or something…(you can roll your eyes, I get it).  But seriously, it’s so comfortable and so flattering with just the right amount of stretch, and make me feel like I can take on the world ;).  I guess you could say Eight Dreams is just making all my denim dreams come true – after feeling…
