What I Wore: Palm Springs and Palm Print Forever

Nubby Twiglet | What I Wore: Palm Springs and Palm Print Forever

Palm Springs and palm trees, let me count the ways I love thee.

My obsession with palm prints is still going strong — and there’s so many great new items out there that are covered in them!

When I was recently in Palm Springs, I was walking through a neighborhood in my Billabong palm print rash guard (I always wear it as a shirt in hot weather since it’s cropped and super breathable) and spotted this beautiful corner right as the sun was beginning to set.

I’ve told you time and again how beautiful Palm Springs is….and this is the proof. Seriously, if I had this collection of beautiful foliage right outside my door, I would be so incredibly happy. The ultimate dream!

A few of my favorite things: phone case, book of palms, record player, pillow, art print and sneakers.

Speaking of dreams, though our adventure in condo land has been slightly delayed, having that goal dangling out in front of me has kept me super motivated. Normally, as this time of year sets in and the sun comes out, I just want to be out exploring (all those years of school with a built-in summer break are hard to forget, right?!) but knowing that our goal is to buy in 3 to 6 months, I’m pushing through some late nights and weekends, focusing on the payoff that could very well be a long winter vacation in my adopted mecca.

Having palm trees in my office and having palm prints around keeps the dream alive while the hard work continues. Always surround yourself with visual reminders of what you want!

P.S. I wasn’t going to include this photo since it’s so blown out but I wanted to give you a real life visual of what Palm Springs is like as the sun begins to set. So intense and cool, right?!

I wore: Billabong rash guard, Zara zipper pocket skirt, Dries van Noten sunglasses and Marc Jacobs sneaker wedges (all old).

    Palm prints seem to be ‘in’ this year and strangely I am also attracted to it XD
    So beautiful! (For me it’s even more exotic, as you can imagine – No such thing in Germany or Dublin :P)
    I once saw a swimsuit in white with dark green palm prints and gold, such a dreamy color combination ♥

    Still good luck with your house hunt! It’s hard and takes time, but in the end it’ll be worth it 😀

      Totally! I did a post about them last year and assumed they’d start fading out….but to my surprise there’s so many new great things popping up with the print which is why I had to share. It’s a nice little escape from the everyday — adds a vacation-inspired tropical vibe that I think most people can get behind. 😉

        Absolutely! I think there’s nothing which screams more ‘Summertime’ than palm prints hahaha!

      This was taken recently in Palm Springs but you’re correct — I’ve actually worn this outfit dozens of times (and a few times on the blog as well) — it’s a personal favorite. I believe in getting my use out of everything in my closet and am still absolutely loving the palm trend.
