Meet Theresa

Welcome to my corner of the online boutique world! I'm Theresa, the owner and founder of 22 Palms Boutique and a fabulous forty-something with a zest for life that's only getting started. With the kids all grown up and the nest officially empty, I've decided it's high time to embark on the adventure of a lifetime – being a small business owner!

Some of my simple pleasures are caffeine, its truly a must and I just adore my orange tabby cat, Punkin.  Brunch is a must; my playlist changes every other day and I enjoy a good binge-worthy Netflix show. I believe that self-care is a year-round season – we deserve it!  I visit the beach as much as humanly possible - it brings me out of the funk the winter seems to bring, and I get more Vitamin D (sunshine) and Vitamin Sea (I'm a true beach babe at heart)!  Along with caffeine, the promise of an upcoming trip keeps me going!  I'm also a Jeep girl so whenever the weather allows, I cruise around top down and doors off!  I want the sun to hit my skin, enjoy wearing my 35 favorite pair of sunglasses and flip flops!   

You see, I've always had this uncanny knack for facing the world head-on, but my perpetual struggle? Finding the right threads to accompany me on my escapades and in my everyday life. Whether it's a spontaneous weekend getaway, a work meeting, training event or a meticulously planned globetrotting extravaganza, I've been on a perpetual quest for the perfect ensemble to match my enthusiasm for life that packs well and will carry me from day to night and one corner of the world to the other.

Now, I'm not just your average globetrotter – I'm a woman on a mission. A mission to prove that age is nothing, but a number and that the world is accessible through fashion, travel, self-care and courage.  I'm inviting you to join me on this fabulous journey – a journey filled with laughter, discovery, and, of course, impeccable fashion that fits into your suitcase and daily wardrobe.

So, whether you're a fellow wanderlust enthusiast, a fashionista in the making, or just someone looking for a little inspiration, you've come to the right place. Let's navigate this exciting chapter of life together – because, darling, we're not just getting older; we're getting bolder, brighter, and undeniably fabulous and our outfits should reflect that.

Grab your air pods, your favorite podcast, book or playlist, and let's conquer the world, one stylish step at a time!  Let me help you pack those bags!  Welcome to the age of adventure, where every outfit holds a story, every destination is a runway waiting to be conquered and where you find your confidence in knowing and having exactly what to pack for that adventure.

Cheers to living life with flair and making every moment memorable!
