A quick getaway to the desert is always a good idea. I live in Southern California and love to steal away to Palm Springs whenever I can. What often happens, however, is that these trips can happen very “last minute” leaving little time for planning and packing. Today I’m going to share with you my tips for a fun, fashionable and stress-free weekend escape to the desert, or wherever your own paradise may be.
Looking stylish and glamorous in the desert means that you need to start with the basics – a cute pair of white shorts and a white shirt. This creates a very soft look and you can mix and match them up easily with other pieces. If you need to freshen up your summer whites, check out these tops I’ve found that fit every figure and signature style:
- Short neck, long face, or narrow shoulders as it gives the illusion of a longer and wider look
- An hourglass shape as it creates a balanced look between upper and lower body
These two off-the-shoulder tops are also for almost every body type and size, but if you are larger busted, just make sure you have good support throughout the day.
This is best recommended for a woman with:
- a long neck
- well-toned arms
- good shoulders
- medium bust
Don’t forget a hat! Whenever I get away to the desert, I always have a cute hat on hand to wear during the day as protection from the sun and to add a little something extra to my look.
My desert wardrobe also includes the Bailie Coral Woven, a challis peasant blouse with butterfly sleeve cuffs and invisible waist ties. This can be worn a few different ways, one of the reasons I love it. For those who like short and sexy, this makes the perfect dress. You can also wear it as a top over a cute pair of white shorts or white denim jeans. Add your necklace and a cute sandal or wedge and you’re set for a night on the town.
Speaking of shoes, here are some of my newest favorites.
Last but certainly not least, to round out your wardrobe, don’t forget a light sweater or wrap because desert winds can come up in the evenings and create a chill.
