A retro Palm Springs

* I love the vintage vases in the lobby at the Parker Palm Springs *

Palm Springs is only a few hours from L.A. and a great weekend getaway. Cookie cutter streets with mid-century modern homes + pools + mountain desert backdrops ... feels surreal!

This past weekend, I tagged along w/my husband & friends for the Coachella weekend music festival. We rented a mid-century modern home through Vacation Palm Springs, where you can live the retro-life! There's tons to do in Palm Springs ~ spas, outdoor adventures, architecture tours, vintage shopping, pool parties, museums, the famous Aerial Tramway + more!

Here are my favorite things to do in Palm Springs!
*start your day off with a jolt at Koffi *-*
*vintage shop along North Palm Canyon Drive
*patio lunch Norma's in Parker Palm Springs, designed by Jonthan Adler
(then wander the garden)
*yummy organic breakfast at Cheeky's
*stay at The Horizon Hotel, designed by architect William F. Cody
*stay at the hip Orbit In
*hang w/hipsters at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club
*Modernism Week in February, every President's Day weekend
*take the PS Modern Tour or buy a map and take a self tour
