One Night In The Desert

On Tuesday afternoon, my husband sent a text informing me he’d booked a room at the uber hip Ace Hotel in Palm Springs for the following evening. Yay for spontaneous road trips!

As my hubs put it, if Urban Outfitters had a hotel, it would be the Ace. I would also hearken it to a Wes Anderson film set complete with typewriter-written hotel menus and a record player in each room.

Hello, home decor goals!

This was the second time we’d been to Palm Springs. The first was almost four years ago on our honeymoon. It was lovely to drive back through the city and remember the places we went as newlyweds.

The hotel is dog friendly so Bartlett was able to accompany us on our getaway. We stayed in a patio room, which made for extra room for Bart and a cool evening eating burgers and sipping cocktails around the fireplace.

Words to live by.

There wasn’t time, but our next trip to the Ace will certainly include a Vespa ride!

The setting was so gorgeous, I couldn’t help but do a quick OOTD shoot! I thought this look was perfect for the desert — complete with a scarf to block any desert dust and distressed denim to blend in with the locals.
