I don’t miss my college days, but like clockwork around this time every year, I get a pang of jealousy for my former self who could enjoy a glorious week off for spring break. With college firmly in my rearview mirror, I’m staying far away hotspots like Cabo, but I did book a few nights in one of my favorite places for a grown-up version of spring break: Palm Springs.
With the weather hovering around 80 degrees, the trip was the perfect excuse to bust out all of my favorite dresses that have been relegated to the back of my closet thanks to L.A.’s incessant rain. Reformation’s Marbella Dress ($248) is one of my favorite new buys—you already know I love a puffy sleeve—and the thigh-high slit adds some oomph to the conservative midi length. I wore the dress with my favorite Soludos Braided Slide Sandals ($99), which are some of the most comfortable sandals I own.
As for the beauty haul I packed for the desert, I had to bring along iS Clinical Active Serum ($135) and applied heaps of Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30 ($42) to protect my pale skin. Scroll down to shop the items I packed for my trip, as well as pieces on my wish list for summer.
