Did I mention Palm Springs is beautiful? I don't think I can say it enough. On this particular day I was supposed to head up Mt. San Jacinto via the AERIAL TRAMWAY but tickets were sold out. So instead I took my faux fur, camel coat, & white jeans on a foot tour around the windy, chilly desert and I quite enjoyed myself. And besides, not being able to go up the mountain is just the excuse I need to take a trip back.

WEARING: zara coat, faux fur from amazon (LOVE THIS COLOR), gap jeans & sweater, necklace from dsw, nine west boots (SIMILAR), furla bag

Doesn't it look like a beautiful spring day in these pictures? 
(lemon treeeeee & sunshine)
Well it wasn't. It was cold and I needed a coat, but I wanted to be cute and wear this yellow jacket from my new favorite store, Banana Republic.


The spring like feel in these pictures can be attributed to the beautiful grounds at the Riviera Palm Springs. This property is a blogger & instagramers paradise because it is absolutely stunning from every angle and every corner. See for yourself...

Did you enjoy the hotel pics? Well, I have to give you a word of caution. I had several problems during my stay, from the heat not working, to a leak in the bathroom ceiling to my room not being cleaned until 7:30 one night. So yes, this is probably one of the more beautiful hotels in  Palm Springs, but buyer beware, underneath the surface, it ain't so pretty.

Happy 2016!!!! I took a mini blogger break to celebrate Christmas, vacation in Palm Springs, & ring in the new year. But I'm backkkkk!
As a California girl who travels as often as she possibly can, it's pretty unbelievable that I have never taken the 55 minute flight to Palm Springs, especially after seeing how absolutely beautiful it is! The mountains were so close I felt like I could just reach out and touch them. I've never seen anything like it before. 
For me this trip was ALL about relaxation and I wanted my wardrobe to follow suit and be just as laid back. I did not pack any heels (gasp) and I kept my clothing selections simple with solids & denim in various shades. 
This long, cozy BCBG cardigan kept me so warm, and could not have matched my cherry red Camaro more perfectly. 

WEARING: bcbgmaxazria cardigan (SIMILAR), BANANA REPUBLIC DESTROYED GRAY JEANSnine west booties (SIMILAR), furla bag, old scarf
Aside from the beautiful mountains, Palm Springs is also filled with beautiful...
PALM TREES, of course!!!!
And lots and lots of Camaros. So glad I got to rent one!
