4 DAYS IN PALM SPRINGS

Super excited to announce a new segment to the blog. TRAVEL!

My passion in life is fashion first, but I've also loved to journal and write about person experience whether they are happy, exciting, sad, or depressing.

This new segment of the blog is where I will share my traveling experiences with you, so today I'm going to share some picture of our anniversary weekend in Palm Springs. 2 years strong, can't wait for 100 more!

We stayed in Cathedrial City in the Coachella desert area at a resert. It was so crazy beautiful with only the view of the desert, making us feel so secluded and way from everyday responsibilities.

Here are some pictures we took at the pool and in downtown Palm Springs

DAY 1: This weekend was well over 90 degrees and into the triple digits. Thank the good Lord, I found this braided straw fan at Target for only $3. My favorite thing about Target is the dollar section. I'm obsessed and it makes my man so annoyed because that's the first place I shop when going to Target. Every target trip is 30 mins or more, and everyone who goes to Target with me knows that, especially my man. Sorry not sorry, babe. :)  Go to your nearest Target before my fan is sold out. Once everything in the dollar section is sold out, that's it, it won't come back. Hurry!

DAY 1: My hat is, of course, from Nordstrom Rack by Melrose & Market. I totally lucked out finding this hat and truly feel that the hat chose me. I do have a smaller sized head so shopping for hats is a total pain.  Shop my  Melrose & Market hat .

DAY 1: Another amazing find I didn't intend on landing were these rose gold and pink tortoise shell reflective sunnies. I was shopping for new minimalist jewelry at Forever 21 and happened to see these. They were a "had to have them" kind of item.  Shop my Forever 21  necklace  and  sunnies .

DAY 1: My upmost obsession for summer is sexy one pieces, and this one doesn't disappoint. I bought this Tularosa one piece from Revolve. Totally perfect for any skin tone and the braided sides add that extra sex appeal that you need when wearing a one piece.  Shop my  Tularosa one piece  from Revolve.

DAY 2: Hottest day of our stay and I decided to wear a dark jade color top... poor choice.  I'm totally obsessed with this outfit, but it might have been better for a lunch date in Santa Monica, not touristy strolls in 100 degree weather in Palm Springs.

DAY 2: Another hat that found its way to me from Saks Off 5th. I think the most important go-to accessory when in Palm Springs and even during Summer is a straw hat. Find one that goes well with your face and try on as many as possible because a great hat is the perfect vacation investment.  Shop  Saks Off 5th Summer hats .

DAY 2: For years I've had this skirt and it was a Marshall's Find. I don't wear it enough but I definitely will start wearing it more now. I'm notorious for buying darker color clothing without realizing. I find myself saying to myself, 'Does this come in black?'. I can thank the fashion industry for that bad habit.  During our stroll in the desert heat we found the most beautiful and historic architecture that were truly a blogger and photographer's dream.   The Shop Style website is my upmost favorite fashion search engine to find those extra hard to find items. You can shop similar skirts like mine,  here .

DAY 2: My bag is by Rebecca Minkoff and I bought it last Summer during her online Sample Sale. This bag is in white and the style is still available to purchase on her website, but in other color ways. Also, best part of her leather bags are they are super easy to surface clean if there is a spill, for example, my jeans crocked blue dye on it sometimes, and a magic eraser is the best thing to bring it back to a perfect white.  Shop my  Rebecca Minkoff bag .

DAY 2: If I could have an office here just for doing blogger stuff, I'd jump at the opportunity!  This was by far my favorite back drop and I know in the near future I'll be back, but maybe early morning or afternoon during sunset. Even in the shade it was still 95 degrees. Icky!

DAY 2: My top is from Nordstrom Rack by Bobeau .  My sunnies, of course, are  Prada . I'm always wearing these in each #ootd because they are my prescription sunnies. #nowyouknow  My favorite part of this look, beside everything, are my sandals. My sandals are by Mari A. and they were also from Nordstrom Rack. Completely comfortable and perfect for summer.  Shop my  Bobeau top  and my  Mari A. sandals .

DAY 2: This was me walking casually to the car to escape the heat and to go back to the resort where the pool and margaritas are cool and refreshing.

DAY 3: These shots were a must since we were literally in the middle of the desert at this resort. Such beautiful clear mountains, green grass golf courses and bright blues skies.  My head wrap is from Revolve and it is probably 4 years old now.  Shop similar  scarves  &  head wraps  from Revolve.

NIGHT 3: My necklace is by Stephan & Co. from Nordstrom Rack. The great thing about these necklaces are the multi-uses that you can do. It has a bead that moves higher or lower on the metal strands to make a choker style necklace or a long dainty necklace.  Also you can wear it backwards and the ends can hang down your back with a really cute backless dress or shirt and its just that extra attitude of simplicity that ties your outfit together.

NIGHT 3:  Walking into the desert sunset... jk. But this girl definitely loves the desert life. I love the fact that I wore short sleeve tops and short shorts the entire weekend. Of course, when I wasn't in a swimsuit.  Typically we don't like doing shoots at night but this was the first night during our whole stay that there was a purple-pink sunset sky, and if you know my man, you know that he loves watching purple-pink sunsets. He's just the cutest when it comes to photography and I love that about him.     I really hope you enjoyed this new segment of the blog.
