I went to Palm Springs last week! It was never too much fun to stay in this amazing desert town. Everything we experienced in Palm Spring was so cozy, friendly and beautifully-styled. I really wanted to share some fun places that I enjoyed on this trip.
Immersed with bougainvillea flowers, I fell in love this hidden garden at Downtown Palm Springs. There were a few historical residences along this little alley. The cactus and bougainvillea were all over here.
My wrap dress is Vibe Apparel and the hat is San Diego Hat Company.
I arrived at this discreet hotel with only 15 guest suites and hidden private entrance. This was The Palm Springs Hotel, a very stylish modern white-on-white decorated hotel. The lined orange umbrellas evokes newness from the classic look. The hot tub and fire place in the courtyard were such nice places to chill out at a 65-degree spring night. This hotel was incredible for small parties and couples.
Even it's not yet Coachella, I still felt so much festive in this town. Shops and streets were decorated for the festivals. I did a little pre-coachella look - my tribal styled kimono is Joh Apparel, white kit top is Ten Sixty Sherman and denim shorts is Lovers and Friends LA.
The Dress is from Groceries Apparel, an environment-friendly brand that makes clothes with recycled materials in LA. Love this shade that matched with the teal bed in the hotel room.
We had a great experience at Zin American Bistro. The mushroom soup was amazing and the portion was very sizable. We were seated at the outside on the patio, enjoying the sun and the delicious food. The place really casual and neat with a full traditional American menu. The brunch was reasonably priced with lots of variety.
The restaurant that I enjoyed the most was Trio, a contemporary American restaurant that was on the Downdown Strip. Lunch and dinner were both amazing. I love the upscale yet casual vibe and its superb food and service.
LA Plaza had a very historical setting for shopping and dining. The most popular joint was L’Atelier Cafe which offered an authentic French cafe experience in the middle of a California desert town. Check out their croissants sandwiches.
We only spent one night in town so that we didn't go to all the attractions and restaurants that I wanted to visit - but it was short and sweet. I will definitely come back very soon. I already put a few media darlings like Azucar, Farm and Sandfish etc etc on my list. Anyway, it was only three hours of driving from LA - why not?
