My Palm Springs' Dress

When I saw this maxi tunic dress, it simply screamed "Palm Springs!" to me. Between the kaftan stye and the modern print, this dress would definitely feel right at home in Palm Springs. I even had images of wearing it poolside by a mid-century modern house with the desert in the background! While I love going to Palm Springs because it makes for a short day trip from Los Angeles and there's so much to see, it's just too hot this time of the year to go. This is especially true this summer because, due to the pandemic, most activities have to be done outdoors, thus forcing you to be out in the unbearable heat. The idea of hiking around sightseeing or even eating outdoors in 110+ degree heat just didn't sound very appealing, so I found another place to wear this dress. Although, to be honest, this gorgeous wall of bougainvillea looks like it could be right out of Palm Springs!

Once the temperatures cool down a bit in Palm Springs this fall, I will probably venture back for a short trip. It's good to know that this dress will be ready when that time comes! Even though we have visited Palm Springs a number of times, I still have a small list of places that I would like to visit in the area on my next trip there. So, between the promise of checking those things off of my list and taking an epic Palm Springs photo shoot of me wearing this dress around town, I have lots of reasons to get back there...hopefully sooner than later!
