palm springs bachelorette party packing

this weekend i'm headed to palm springs for a day of sun, cocktails and relaxing with a few other ladies as we celebrate the upcoming wedding of a gal pal. so of course, we've been scheming outfits, bathing suits and such for weeks. i thought i would share a few things that i've found are pretty much necessities for a bachelorette party set in a sunny location, or basically any overnighter in the dessert.

byot. bring your own towel. instagram pics of your toes and cocktails are way cuter when you have a pretty towel or blanket like this one. ;) // keep it breezy and casual. with temps in the 100's, it's a good idea to stick with simple dresses that will keep you cool while looking chic. i love this white dress paired with this simple tassel necklace. // always have a hat to shield your pretty face from the sun and makes it easy to get ready the next day when you have to head home. // although you'd have some terrible tan lines, i still can't get over this bathing suit top. it's been on my wish list for a while and would pair well with so many of the bottoms i already own. // a coverup that can take you from the pool, to lunch, and let's be honest, probably to the hotel bar (it's a bachelorette party folks). // i'm the worst over-packer, so finding sandals and a cute mini bag that you can use day or night is a great way to just bring one of each, not one for day and one for night! // and finally, my favorite mascara for a night out and some nude lips to stick with the simple chis look i'll be going for.
