i spy: palm springs style.

croatia vintage.

i’m not sure if i’ve told y’all, but i’m off to palm springs this weekend! it’s modernism week, and my good friend casey has a home there, so lucy and i are applying our sunscreen and headed to the desert for a week of mid-century modern madness. i’ll be blogging from there, so it’ll be a working vacation, but no matter, the wifi should work by the pool. as you may recall, i was there last year, and it’s become an annual event. let’s get in the mood, shall we? i spy a little palm springs style!

  1. What a great trip to take in the midst of this Northern CA wintry storm! I absolutely adore Trina Turk. This post made me want to pull out all my summery prints. Thanks for the mini-vacay!

  2. Feeling rather jealous of you. Have fun! Really like your shoes by the way!

  3. Wow – as I look back and forth between your pictures and a very gray day here, I can’t wait to see more! Sheri

    So funny when I went there last September I had no problem packing at all and I always have trouble packing. I then realized I have half a closet filled with Palm Springs appropriate clothing that I never get to wear here.

    I love Trina Turk! Those of us in London are highly jealous of your sunshine. I’ve been fantasizing about living in San Francisco for far too long now. Enjoy Palm Springs!

    I LOVE Palm Springs, stayed there years ago when I was in college and burned my eyelids – didn’t know how hot that sun could get in the desert!! I love the mid-century modern designs too and the photos above are fab!

  25. Love those mid century modern colors – avocado, orange like orange should be, turquoise (it’s making a comeback)and the boldness of juxtaposing bright colors in one crazy swirl.

  26. Beautiful collection of photos! Love those green shoes, are they yours?!
