I love traveling during Spring and Summer and a good way to take a break from the Los Angeles hustle, you can drive two and a half hours to Palm Springs. Palm Springs is a perfect place to visit for a weekend getaway. So many good hotels and resorts where you can unwind and relax. One of our favorite spots to stay around Palm Springs area is the La Quinta resort located in La Quinta. I love this resort because is pet-friendly it is big enough where you feel like exploring, they have an insane amount of pools, tennis, restaurants, spa etc… is like it’s own little village. The theme of this hotel is Spanish with white buildings, Spanish tile and plenty of bougainvillea flowers, This place is beautiful with bougainvillea flowers when they are in season, which is the fuchsia flower you see a lot on these blog pics.
So I decided to do 8 looks in this beautiful hotel, all thinking about 8 perfect looks to wear for a weekend getaway:
WHITE MIDI EYELET DRESS WITH BASKET BAG
I love the material and the back detailing of this dress, so feminine and sexy
Eyelet fabric is classic and looks great during hot months. Eyelet is a popular fabric during Spring and Summer. So if you are tired of solids, look for clothing in interesting fabrics like eyelet, lace, crochet etc… This makes white clothing feel a little more interesting.
When traveling to a hot place there is no doubt that white clothing is your best friend. The desert gets really hot so wearing breathable vacation clothing is a necessity. Which is very similar to going to the tropical place. So these looks are perfect for any type of tropical vacation.
My first look is a white midi dress with eyelet fabric, this dress features front buttons around the skirt and it has a beautiful open back lace-up detailing. I accessorized with a medium size basket bag perfect to put your vacation essentials.
I accessorized with gold hoop earrings, multi-layered necklace and clear heals.
THE MINI WRAP DRESS
Another good option to wear while on a mini vacation getaway is a short wrap dress. This type of dress is so comfy and easy to wear. Perfect to wear during the day, even with your bathing suit. I like how you can adjust the fit of a wrap dress by how you tie the dress. This dress can look good with sandals or heels.
I accessorized this look with a round basket bag, straw hat, clear strappy heels – similar and gold accessories.
CROP LINEN PANTS, EYELET CROP TOP AND FLORAL LONG CARDIGAN
My third option is this pair of white linen crop pants with pockets and raw hem paired with an eyelet crop top, floral soft layer cardigan and basket bag.
I wanted to show a look where you can wear pants, a crop pant makes the pant easier to wear and you can wear it with sandals. If you are the type of person that likes to protect yourself from the sun, wind or even if gets chilly at night. Having a soft layer cardigan, kimono is a necessity. One of the things I like about packing soft layers that are easy to wear, easy to pack, and it’s lightweight. Packing lightweight clothing can make your trip more enjoyable.
WHITE POM POM TUNIC DRESS
I love comfy white loose dresses while I am on vacation. After a long day at the pool or in the sun. All I want to wear is something comfy like a white tunic dress.
My fourth look is this beautiful pom pom tunic dress, I love the simplicity and elegance of this dress. I added pointy flats, a circular basket bag, and straw hat and hoop earrings. You can dress this look up by adding heels.
When I am traveling or on vacation, I like to wear comfortable clothing, I already know is going to be hot so I don’t want to worry about how to feel good when you have all these weather variables that can affect your mood. So dressing for comfort can make your trip worry free. And because you dress comfortably doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish.
My fifth look is a midi blue tunic dress with embroidery details and short kimono sleeves. I accessorized an extra large basket bag, straw hat, and strappy sandals. This look is perfect to wear after the pool and a long day in the sun. This dress can be worn as a cover-up or a casual dress.
FLORAL WRAP DRESS
Florals this summer and spring were really strong so my six look is a floral wrap dress. What I like about this print, it puts you in the mood. I automatically feel on vacation by looking at it. It puts me in a tropical vacation state of mind. I love wrap dresses because they are easy to wear and to put on. For this look I let the dress be the center of attention even though I accessorized with a multi-layered necklace, hoop earrings, and basket bag,
WHITE MINI SKIRT
My 7th look is a mini skirt, I also love showing skin while I am on vacation. and wearing a high waisted mini skirt allows me to wear a crop top and continue to let my skin tan. I love wearing a couple sexy looks while I am on vacation and a mini skirt with a crop top can do it.
I accessorized with strappy wedges, basket bag, pearl earrings and geometric sunnies.
SHORTS, BIKINI TOP, AND FLORAL KIMONO
Well, when I think about the desert, I think about Coachella and to me, there is no classic look people tend to wear at Coachella than shorts, crop top or bikini top and long cardigan. Well, we were not too far from Coachella so I decided to do my last look in honor of Coachella. There is a reason why this look is so popular. It is comfy and easy to wear.
High waisted vintage Levis shorts, ruffle bikini top, floral kimono, bamboo bag, bow sandals, oval earrings and straw hat.
Hope you enjoy this 8 looks and found inspiration on what to wear on your next tropical vacation or a getaway.
