A Morning in Palm Springs

This year we decided to road trip down to Arizona for the holidays.  In planning our open road adventure, it seemed like an obvious choice to stop in Palm Springs as our halfway point.  If you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw that we stayed at The Saguaro hotel.  It's bright colors and retro atmosphere made for a fun and relaxed environment.  Once we arrived and checked in, we didn't have to travel far for some solid margarita's and tacos.  We had a great casual dinner and drinks at El Jefe in the hotel's lobby.  Before we headed out to continue our road trip to Tucson the next day, we headed over to the Parker Palm Springs for a delicious brunch at Norma's.  The food was really good and the people watching was even better!

After brunch I had to take a moment to do a little exploring in and around the hotel.  The grounds are beautiful including a little garden oasis filled with hammocks! If you are heading to the desert any time soon, I recommend both places to stay and to eat!
Whenever I am traveling by car or by plane, I pack my bags exclusively with comfortable clothes, like over sized sweaters and baggy denim.  This trip was no different.  My favorite go to sweater these days is an over sized shawl like vest from Topshop, which in now on super sale (Here).  My vest paired with baggy jeans, booties, and a cute floppy hat, was perfect for brunching followed by five hours in the car!
