The weather has been all over the map here in Palm Springs. It’s downright cold in the morning then gets up to the 80s by early afternoon and cools back off in the evening. It’s the perfect climate for layers which is luckily what I packed.
One of our first days exploring downtown and cruising neighborhoods of the rich and famous I wore a blue denim jacket, my new favorite cotton navy tee, white jeans, and slip-on sneakers. No earrings in sight this day:) This Everlane cotton tee is terrific. I also bought a white one but it’s not totally opaque so it’s not my ultimate white tee.
We had lunch at Sherman’s Deli and Bakery which is an institution in Palm Springs. Their potato latkes are world-class and will necessitate a diet when I get home. My husband is hooked on their Pastrami which reminds him of his youth in New York. I’m a non-meat eater so hooked on the desserts.
A few days later we toured the Lautner compound which has the most amazing gardens. You can read all about the Lautner here.
I wore black and white with leopard flats and the only earrings I brought🙂 It’s funny, but just taking a short break from wearing black helps me appreciate it. I don’t plan to stop wearing black but I am enjoying dialing it back.
I could easily settle in here for several weeks with a lovely stack of books and decompress.
I’ve never been a fan of desert landscaping, until now. When done well, like at the Lautner Compound, it’s a minimalist and artistic look. We’re hoping to buy a few of these cacti to bring home and plant in pots so we can have a little feel of Palm Springs at home.
I also met a reader for tea last week, hi Jacie:) We talked non stop!
I’ve eaten my body weight in date shakes, fish tacos and am loving life.
This isn’t our first trip to Palm Springs and it won’t be our last.
Do you think you could live here? I am wondering if we could.
