A fun, fashionable Palm Springs getaway

A fun, fashionable Palm Springs getaway

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:

This flirty top offers a cute spin on the popular cross-front design, with long sleeves, u-neck, and a casual, flattering fit. This top can be worn by almost every body type, but is best for:

  • 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
This effortlessly easy Gioannia Off Shoulder Top instantly adds a subtly sexy feel to your look. An elastic, off-the-shoulders neckline, ¾ sleeves, and textured knit with a little stretch creates the perfect date-night look.
The Shelly top in white is a sassy, sexy style with a slightly flared shape, cutout sleeves and adjustable straps.

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
Last, but not least, you can stay cool and still look hot with this 1×1 One Shoulder Top. In a striking, unique cut, tight fit, and with one sleeveless side, you’ll definitely stand out.

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.

Every cute white shirt deserves a colorful, fun necklace. Here’s a couple I’m loving right now: The Free Blosson necklace, adding a bold boho look, or, for a simpler approach, the Coral Native Necklace. Both look great and can match up with so many different looks.

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.

For makeup, be sure to always pack a good lip balm with spf to protect your lips. I always bring my daytime pallet by Manna Kadar Cosmetics because this amazing palette is perfect for that person on the go! It comes with 6 eye shadows, 1 blush, 2 highlighters and a contour shade! Create a perfect makeup application with just one product!

My other favorite from this line is this best-selling 5-piece lip collection. With shades ranging from the perfect nude to a deep wine, complete any look with Manna Kadar’s Lip Locked Stain. These 3-in-1 powerhouse products contain built-in primer with the pigment of a lipstick and the finish of a lip gloss. Plus, they are paraben free and allergy tested, perfect for sensitive skin.
