Palm Springs Popsicles

Palm Springs is one of my favorite places to go for a quick vacation or day trip due to its proximity to Los Angeles. In my opinion, traveling to Palm Springs in the summer is both the best and worst time to go! It's the best time because it's not very crowded, as the streets are literally empty, but it's the worst time because of the unbearable heat! (The obvious reason for why the streets are empty!) A couple weeks ago, we braved the heat on a day that was a "cool" day for Palm Springs at 106 degrees! Luckily, I planned for the heat and wore this comfy and cool red dress from Target. Truth be told, I also wore this dress because I thought it would match these fun, colorful and very cool popsicles! Below, you will find some other cool and comfy red dresses that would be perfect for a Palm Springs getaway!

The other great thing about Palm Springs is that there's a wonderful art scene! On this occasion, we checked out these popsicles in the Sunny Dunes area of Palm Springs. This popsicle installation was commissioned through a grant to promote art and to help local artists in the area who are struggling due to the pandemic. In addition to checking out this installation, we also went to the Palm Springs Art Museum! This was my first time visiting the museum and I was really impressed by the variety of art and the friendly staff. The museum was definitely very cool, both figuratively and literally, because they had air conditioning and I would highly recommend a visit if you are visiting Palm Springs!

    Hope you are having a good weekend :)

  5. Super cute dress, Katie! And those sandals are amazing. But the popsicle art might be stealing the show on this one! How fun is that? I love that you wore this red dress specifically to match the popsicles. So fun! Fabulous photos.
