Palm Springs and Los Angeles Packing List

Palm Springs & LA California Packing List

I always love a trip to Southern California and am grateful to have visited the area a lot. I often find myself tacking on days in LA following a trip to Palm Springs and that’s what I’ve been doing this past week.  It had been three years since I had been back here and the Vitamin D, sound of the ocean and pool time has been rather healing.

I thought I’d share what was in my (large) suitcase this time around as you plan for your own Spring shopping and warm weather trips.

Palm Springs & Los Angeles Packing List

1. Reformation Bow Shoulder Dress

The cutest dress! My polka dot one looks to be sold out already but the dress is available in other colors/patterns as well as extended sizing and petites. I have the size 8R.

2. J.Crew Cut Out Poplin Midi Dress

The perfect dress that can be dressed up or dressed down.  I have it in a size 6.

3. Everlane Cheeky Jeans

The light-wash of these jeans make them a favorite for warmer weather. I wear a size 28.

4. J.Crew White Denim

I never go to Southern California without a pair of white denim!

5. Mango Wrap Back Dress

A dress with a fun back but you can actually wear a regular bra?! Yes, please! One of my best finds yet this season.

6. Janessa Leone Marcell Hat

Because the best sun protection involves SPF and hats!

7. Roxy Bikini Top

Just picked this up for this trip and loved it. Sized up.

8. Amanda Uprichard Bow Shoulder Top

One of my favorite tops from the past couple of years.

9. Summersalt One Shoulder One Piece

Such a flattering swimsuit and therefore one of my go-tos.

10. Le Specs Sunglasses

One of my favorite affordable pairs of sunnies – good to travel with in case anything is to happen to them!

11. Vuori Rib Studio Legging

Packed a lot of workout clothes for hikes and walks! These leggings are a favorite pair. See All My Favorite Leggings.

12. APL Sneakers

You know my love of my APL Techloom sneakers. Had to bring a pair with me of course!

13. Caterina Bertini Woven Shoulder Bag

The newest addition to my bag collection is this cute and under $150 woven bag perfect for warm weather. It’s also super lightweight making it great for traveling with.

14. Golden Goose Sneakers

What I love about my GG sneakers most of all is how well they go with both dresses, leggings and jeans. It makes them a great casual sneaker to travel with to wear with nearly everything in my luggage.

15. Levi’s Denim Jacket

My go-to spring topper.

16. J.Crew Textured Wrap Back One Piece Swimsuit

My newest J.Crew suit.

Also packing this Commando underwear that helps hold everything in. It’s my secret weapon under spring and summer dresses! Even more of what I am packing into my suitcase can be shopped below.
