I’ve always wanted to go to Palm Springs, so our recent trip to the desert was a little tease. I still haven’t made it, I often dream of what I would pack for the trip. The weather says that it’s hot this week, so there is no need for a jacket. I’ve included lots of versatile pieces for this Travel Light post. Most of the dresses can be dressed up or down with the statement necklace. The pouch can be used as a clutch for evening, the tunic doubles as a pool coverup, and the scarf does too!

  1. How far away is Palm Springs from us? Does the name suit the words in it – meaning, are there tons of Palm Trees there? Cause you know I love a good pretty lookin’ palm tree. Or ugly ones, I don’t discriminate.

    I’d totally wear that peach skirt if I thought it wouldn’t look horrible on me. I can’t do (many) skirts. I think that one is extra pretty and so feminine.

  2. I always, ALWAYS, overpack for a trip. Even when I only go for 2-3 days I pack way too much. I need to learn these quick packing tips that so many bloggers share but I fear I’m a hopeless overpacker.

  3. Well this is perfect! can you do this for when I move to Indonesia?! I love your blog and love that you like to travel so much! I also do photography and i’m always planning my next trip!

  4. I have only been reading for about 2-3 weeks, so not sure if you do these kinds of posts all the time, but I love it! Such a great way to illustrate your outfits – very original!

  5. I hope you make it to Palm Springs in the near future! 🙂 I also love how you would pack… I’m the WORST at over packing, I swear I bring 75% of what I own with me!

  6. I was really hoping you were going to say you were doing a giveaway for all these items. I want so many things out of this. Such a fab list. You have amazing taste!

  7. Just want to say that I have been obsessed with the versatility of these pieces since finding (recently) on pinterest…Which says a lot about how insanely understated but so crazy chic EVERYTHING is!!! U have great taste and its my mission to find a comparable version of every single item by the time I go to PS at the end of July. Let me tell u, it’s not easy!

  8. Spent lots of time in Palm Springs and Palm Desert. I would trade your skirt for another pair of shorts or a type of white jean. There isn’t anyplace that your long dress or one of the other short dresses wouldn’t cover! Pretty casual there!
