Packing for the Desert

la_quinta

We are heading to the Desert for the long weekend and I can’t wait.

The Desert restores me and I always come back to Los Angeles relaxed, refreshed and calm (unless traffic is a bitch coming back).

Here are a few of the things I’m packing.

This Ikea bag is perfect for throwing towels, goggles, sunscreen, snacks, you name it.

It’s a big one and holds everything our family needs poolside.

The Tom Ford’s have come and gone, but the Ray Ban Aviator has been my go to shades for over 20 years now.

I have my college sorority sister Helaine to thank for introducing me to this style.

They’ll be traveling with me.

I just got this Lemlem cover up from J. Crew and it will be perfect for throwing on when we head to the pool.

I plan on lounging all day poolside with a big stack of  fashion and trashy gossip magazines.

To redeem myself a tad, I am also packing the latest book our book group is reading, “The Tenth of December” by George Saunders.

The desert gets cold at night so I am bringing my favorite shawl from Viriginia Johnson to keep warm when the sun goes down.

I love Scrabble and I am hoping to get my husband to play a game or two with me.

The most important things I am bringing with me are my family.

Adam and Caroline

They make life fun.

Not to be forgotten,  Mr. P is along for the ride, he’s a fan of the Desert too.

Mr. P

It just wouldn’t be the same without him.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. We are here too. Love Palm Springs! Are you hitting any design events for Modernism Week? I am off to an A. Quincy Jones lecture now while kids are poolside with Dad. I am such a geek.
