Happy Friday! To wrap of my two weeks of sharing my trip to California (yes, I promise I’m almost done!) I wanted to give you all a little insight into our time we spent staying at the Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs. I had seen countless pictures of the place online – I immediately connected with its bohemian and laid-back vibes, and put it on my list of places I wanted to stay eventually.
During our time in Palm Springs, we blocked off an evening to spend exploring Joshua Tree National Park. I had heard amazing things, and Ryan, being a photographer, was dying to go for a chance at getting to shoot the Milky Way. We both had incredibly high hopes for what lied ahead, and needless to say, we were not let down in the least! Joshua Tree was easily one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.
One thing I’m majorly missing about our time in Palm Springs are the relaxing moments we spent by the pool at the Korakia Pensione. The pool there wasn’t like most at hotels – busy and loud. Instead, it was a place of serenity and relaxation. Mountains on one side, palm trees on the other – it was somewhere to take an indulgent book, or just you and your thoughts, and cozy up for the afternoon. This suit is another one from Orchid Boutique I brought with me on my trip, and it was perfect for my down time by the pool, soaking up the sunshine.
I’m so excited today to kick off the second week of posts from my trip to California! This lace caftan from Anthropologie was easily one of the most gorgeous pieces I wore on my trip. As soon as I spotted it, I knew it was coming with me. The fabric was perfect for the hot summer evenings – light and airy enough to catch a little breeze, yet still kept me covered once the temperatures cooled off at night. I couldn’t get over how elegant I felt the whole evening wearing it around the Korakia property.
Happy Friday! It’s so hard to believe that it’s already been two weeks since I was hopping on a plane and headed out east to explore Southern California. As I’ve been posting and reliving the memories from our trip this past week, I realized just how much we were able to fit into such a short span of time! I still have so much to share with you next week including our time in L.A., our quick trip to Mexico, and our adventure in Joshua Tree.
