two years ago my parents had the novel idea of celebrating my favorite holiday in the desert at the la quinta resort and after an amazing experience, this year we’re back for round two. this time we’ve upgraded our rooms and plan on truly relaxing in style (especially since this is really the only other trip S and i will take this year). to say i’m looking forward to the getaway would be a huge understatement.
it’ll be much cooler than when we were out there this summer, with rainy and cool conditions in the forecast as of now. while i’d certainly love a little desert sun, it’ll be fun to have a cozy holiday instead. i plan on packing a couple dressier (yet still comfortable) items (for our dinners out, of course) with a few pieces of athleisure and loungewear mixed in as well to sport around the resort. most of the items i’m packing are new(ish) purchases for this trip/upcoming winter season so everything is still available online/in stores. as always everything is always linked in the @liketoknow.it app as well. a speedy video of how i’ll be styling the below items will be up later today. i hope you enjoy it!
if you’re interested in coming along on our mini vacation, be sure to follow me on instagram for plenty of stories and outfit posts. have a wonderful holiday!
