I was naive about Palm Springs

I had no idea how beautiful the landscape would be. What was I picturing? Flat lands and a million swimming pools. But now that I’m here, I’m in love. The desert, the mountains, the colour of the sky at sunset — it is so beautiful.

California desert

Which is why I am even more excited about Coachella.


So what did I bring with me? This vintage, floral, fluttery number. Perfect for the desert, but it wasn’t always this way. Back in the day it was long. Like Rachel Zoe long. And it was gorgeous, but just too heavy to wear.


But back to Coachella. Lexie, you were wondering which bands I am dying to see (and re-see)? Today it’s Yeasayer (who will be playing in Vancouver on April 21), Passion Pit (even though I just saw them on Sunday), the dance-tastic LCD Soundsystem, the one and only Jay Z and my boy Erlend of the Whitest Boy Alive.


And because my husband loves them, we’re also going to see the way-too-heavy-for-my-taste Dillinger Escape Plan. But we won’t go anywhere near the front of the stage for this reason.

Man, I cannot wait.

First photo found here.

    My parents went a few years ago and stayed at THE hotel of Palm Springs The Parker (it was a work related thing was the reason for going). Jealous – they got to pick lemons. Only reasons I would ever live in really warm climates is to have a lemon, lime and avocado tree. Have a great time!

    Tash — So happy to hear that. If you’re looking for a warm, chill place, Palm Springs is your destination. And don’t miss the outlet malls. They’re fantasgreat!

    Melissa — You should go one year too. You’d love the sun and the palm trees and the shopping.

    MizzJ — Thank you soooo much for saying that! I hate to admit it, but I’m older than I look (or act, for that matter).

    Anya — Whitest Boy Alive was amazing. Erlend Oye is my hero.

    Lexie — Any time, mon amie!

    K-L — It’s gorgeous, isn’t it?

    Abby — And that’s as good a reason as any.

    JanetTaylor — You can’t go wrong with florals, can you?
