Palm Springs and Joshua Tree use to be one of those places I considered sleepy town stop-overs whenever I was in town to attend the Coachella festivals back in the day. The Socal scenery since The Rat pack’s reign, has long kept its quiet slow-paced life style until recent years. In all its glorious revival, the desert landscape is now flourished with boutique hotels, stylized mid-century Air BNB homes to rent, bars, hip eateries, and vintage shop havens — it’s the perfect 2 hour get-away for local Angelenos whatever the agenda is.
I had the pleasure of being invited to go BTS on a creative trip with a group of kick-ass women doin’ their thang. All really dope creatives that have a great following and working on their own individual exciting projects. The inspiration for the trip was inspired by Gucci’s epic S/S 16′ Spring Presentation and all things 70s that’s currently trending. How could it not, it’s so so so good and never gets old in my book.
Traveling during the holidays can test the patience of even the most seasoned travel pros. Be it by plane, train, or automobile, getting to where you’ve got to go this season is bound to bring with a plethora of stressful situations. Never ending traffic, long lines at the airport, TSA checks, and weather delays can all cause headaches. Not to mention the costs associated with celebrating “the most wonderful time of the year.” Airline, hotel, and car rental reservations are in high demand; there’s no such thing as a last-minute deal. Or holiday deal, period. It’s almost enough to make you want to call up your folks and tell them you’re just not coming. Instead of getting stressed out, get smart. Take a deep breath. There are ways to survive this travel gauntlet, with your sanity–and holiday spirit–unscathed . For fellow fashionistas, what to wear while traveling is forever a tricky question. The best outfit for an airplane is going to be equal parts stylish and comfortable, crafted to handle both hours spent sitting and stylish post-gate activity. Here is where the genius of a uniform comes into play: Figure out what works for you, then reach for it without thinking any time you’ve got travel on the calendar. Having an arsenal of fool-proof closet essentials–the big cardigan, the comfy trench, the stylish sweatpants, the easy to slip off pair of flats, the loose fitting boyfriend jeans–are all the best items to reach for when picking a look that’s easy, chic, and #OOTD worthy.
