Desert Dreams with Catherines Plus Sizes

by Monday, May 16, 2016

Let me set the scene for you:

It’s a hot spring day in Palm Springs, California. The sky is void of clouds and the sun is bright and high in the sky. The cactus stand, tall and proud and there’s a fresh smell in the air – one that is comprised of wide open spaces, desert and a light breeze. I step out of my suite onto the patio, overlooking the pool. Out of my periphery, I can see the girls sitting around the round table surrounded by iron chairs. I’m hit with the smell of lattes and cinnamon as I walk toward them and join them for breakfast.

The day’s itinerary is announced and we all buzzed with excitement, eager to begin our adventure.

But first, selfies!

After a morning of sightseeing and noshing around Palm Springs, the girls and I headed back to the house for a chill afternoon of tanning and bonding.

We soaked up the sun and relaxed and had a generally fabulously zen afternoon. The next morning, though, we were ready for our biggest adventure yet! An open-air Hummer tour of the desert!

When I tell you it was INCREDIBLE – I am not exaggerating one bit! Everyone should experience this off-roading adventure once in their lifetime. Bonus points if you do it in a fab ensemble with your girls! 

Once the exhilarating ride was over, we grabbed a quick bite and decided to spend some time coming down from our adrenalin rush at the house before heading out to dinner later that night.

    Really love that blue vest. Cannot seem to find it on Catherine’s website. Are they not selling it anymore?
