Cactus, Sunshine, and Clogs




Hey, HEY! Giving a shout out to my best friend Melanie today as she is my very first GUEST POST here at Refined + Rugged.

You didn’t think I went to Palm Springs alone, did you? Nope. It was a full-on Mama’s Relaxing Weekend Retreat at the La Quinta. Just. So. Good.

It’s a darn good thing we took so many outfit photos. Here in the mountains the rain hasn’t subsided but for a few small breaks these past few weeks, and we haven’t had a chance to snap any outfit shots! Another week of these summery, palm-filled photos and hopefully we’ll be boasting some mountain sunshine and some real-time outfit photos.

I am seriously still wearing long sleeved shirts and long pants on the daily. No need for short sleeves or sandals! It’s been too cold. This weather has also put a serious cramp in my outdoor cycling time, too. Thankfully I busted out the door yesterday with a good friend to take advantage of a relatively calm window midst rain showers. I have a 100 mile ride coming up in just over a week (eeeek!), and DANG! I really need to get out there!

Is this cactus garden the BOMB, or what?! I could not get enough! Melanie’s pink shirt was the perfect standout against this little cactus Eden. When it comes to outfit photos she was a NATURAL. Plus, this top is currently on sale, so scroll to the details below and scoop one up for yourself as a Summer treat!

Have a glorious Thursday!

XX, Megan
