I learned recently that I love the desert. When David and I went to Palm Springs and Palm Desert last weekend I was in awe of the beauty and the expanse of the desert. We decided I probably love it so much because I didn’t know anything like that existed growing up. The only desert-like areas I had seen before moving to California were mostly on TV. After 7 years in California the desert is still new to me. I love the heat and hanging out by a pool to cool off. The beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the mountains and all the interesting, unique plants. There’s something calm and relaxing about the desert.
That’s exactly what we did, we relaxed by the pool, walked around downtown Palm Springs, ate lots of food, drank good drinks and went for an early morning bike ride. If you are ever in need of a nice, peaceful weekend (and let’s be honest, who isn’t in need of one) I definitely recommend the Palm Desert / Palm Springs area.
I found this dress about a month ago and had to try it. I am super into the wrap dresses this summer, to me they are so fun and flirty! This one is from TopShop. The dress is definitely not made for the wind, I had a couple of oopsie moments, but it is perfect for a warm summer day. I paired the dress with my Anthropologie round sunglasses
and Steve Madden sandals. We didn’t have a heavy duty camera on this trip so this and my last blog post were shot with my iPhone.
