What I Wore to Palm Springs, 5 Days in Outfits

Palm trees in Palm Springs, California

I recently attended a conference in Palm Springs called Alt Summit. I shared my packing list earlier, and these are the outfits I wore that came from it. Some items are obviously similar replacements, but for the most part I stuck to my list and made everything work.

We checked out of the conference hotel, into another, then went hiking in the Painted Canyons. I wore these Lululemon leggings and this top, along with my Nike Free RN Shoes for hiking, then changed into the outfit above for dinner at Workshop Kitchen & Bar in downtown Palm Springs.

Day 5
This was our last day in Palm Springs. We checked out of the hotel, had lunch with my brother in the high desert, then drove the rest of the way back to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Do you end up using all of the items that you pack? I feel like I had some extras in this list, but I’m still glad I had them as options.

  1. Love all these looks! I really love that black Cuyana cape cardigan you often wear but can’t pull the trigger on it yet because the price. Any change you’ve seen anything similar at a lower price?
