Here's What We're Digging: Volume 143...

This month in the Gazette...A non-alcoholic espresso martini, a pigeon clutch that doubles as a pet, and a perfect poolside black straw hat. See you in the desert, lovies. ✌🏼

Hey. Hi. Howdy! 👋🏼 Spring’s here and we’re vibing with the sunny, warm weather. (Though honestly, when’s that not the case in Palm Springs?) With April showers *not* being a thing, we’re soaking up plenty of time outdoors—sunnies and suits on—poolside, fireside, courtside. 🎾 Want to join? Live vicariously through these April essentials—pigeon clutch, included. Here are a few things we’ve been digging lately…

Here's What We're Digging...

1. A ruffle-trimmed suit that has you swimming (lounging… cocktail sipping… ) in style. Basically, anything you do, do it in this swimsuit. 🩱

2. Cocktails > hangover. Luckily, this mushroom-infused non-alcoholic espresso martini gets it. Trust us on this one—it’s delish. 🍸

3. The aforementioned pigeon clutch. She’s cute, she’s quirky, she’s everything we didn’t know we needed in a bag. 🐦

4. Two cult brands get together to make the perfect sunglasses. These Khaite x Oliver Peoples sunnies are more than worth the investment. 🕶️

5. Because your towel should spark joy. Poolside or beachside, consider this oversized Portuguese towel your favorite place in the sun. ⛱️

6. The kind of scent that’ll have folks asking: What are you wearing? Juicy, sweet, and with an unmistakable allure, no one does fragrances like Phlur .

7. We all need a shoe dedicated solely (ha!) to our Palm Springs pursuits. Meet the Birkenstock Arizona —updated in a waterproof, shock-absorbing material. It's the best riff on a classic we’ve encountered.

8. Bathrobe Days—we’re making them a thing. For when you want to lounge in colorful cotton terry comfort, this bathrobe is a must.

9. Live like a PS local—where a vacation vibe is always the vibe. If you want to be in the heart of all the Palm Springs buzz (of course you do), Cody’s Place is *the place.*

10. Sun protection, leveled up. ☀️ With a leather trim, this straw sun hat by Ruslan Baginskiy gives an elegant edge to your go-to spring fit.

That’s all for now...
