A few things I learned on my quick road trip out to Palm Springs: this Rongo Ruffle Top by Viva Aviva goes with everything, sun hats are a must, you can never pack enough bikinis, oysters and beer rule my life, desert climates give me luscious hair, the Beatles are the perfect road trip buddies, less is more, yes, Ubers do exist out here, relaxation is guaranteed, and blueberry corn pancakes are the best hangover remedy.

I have been wearing this bag nonstop for the last couple of weeks. I love its compact size with extendable sides so you can fit a pretty good amount in this little nugget. The vibrant orange color gives my summer outfits the perfect pop of color and the coolest feature is the interchangeable covers so you can actually change the covers to match your outfit accordingly.

I'm also pretty obsessed with these white wide-leg pants by Stella and Jamie. Light-weight, flattering, and of course those sexy slits on the sides. I love when there's that extra somethin' somethin' to an outfit and I'm pretty sure those slits are it. You have to see them in action! There's such an ethereal quality to this outfit because of the movement created by those slits. And of course, pair them with this gorgeous ruffle top by VIVA AVIVA and you have a match made in heaven.

These pancakes were to die for-- genius pairing with whole blueberries and corn inside the pancake. A very delightful surprise. Also an amazing cure for all the tequila and beer from the night before. The Bloody Mary's here were also very good. The perfect brunch place after a night out.

I switched out of this Triangl bikini halfway through my swimming session into my Victoria's Secret bikini due to the design and material of the bikini. Though I'm sure if this bikini had straps, I would have been able to swim around the pool more freely. That being said, I absolutely LOVE the design of this bikini. If ever there was a sexy bikini award, I believe Triangl would definitely win. My favorite part of this bikini was the zipper. Super sexy. Also I give them brownie points for giving my little ones an extra boost. There's no padding but it fits perfectly around the bust to give me the lift I need.

Also, HUGE, HUGE shout out to these Lovers + Friends denim shorts. I am guilty of wearing them almost everyday-- simply because they fit so incredibly. Denim never felt this good. Really. The boyfriend feel without the boyfriend fit. Most "boyfriend" style jeans have always been very oversized on me but these fit my waist and bum perfectly. The best of both worlds. I can't get enough.

Bye, y'all! This is how happy this trip made me. Haha. This was my first trip out to Palm Springs as an adult and I must say it was one of the most relaxing trips I've ever been on. Hooray for desert road trips! I will cherish the memories made during this trip forever. To many more road trips and summer memories. Cheers!
