Palm Springs Road Trip First Stop Cabazon Dinosaurs

Palm Springs Road Trip First Stop Cabazon Dinosaurs

So excited to kick off the Christmas season with this look featuring Varley and Karen of So Voila! Karen, Morgan Newton our wonderful photographer and myself jumped in my car a couple weeks ago to drive to Palm Springs for a travel series we'll be posting throughout this next month! 

The road trip started from Los Angeles and ended in Palm Springs at some of Karen and I's favorite hotels. My first time in Palm Springs was with Karen where we stayed at the Saguaro hotel. We had planned to spend the entire day lounging at the pool and getting a spring time tan but instead we sat in the hot tub getting rained on! We needed a redo from that trip and what a better way to spend a day than road tripping with some of your best friends. Karen's blog So Voila is a travel blog about a French girl living in LA, a perfect collaboration for Braids & Bikinis! 

We started with visiting Cabazon California, an actual city but a place most people know as "The Cabazon Dinosaurs"! When we arrived to the Dino's I had initially thought there was only 2-3 but little did we know Cabazon hosts a little dinosaur park complete with a T-Rex you can go inside of! The Cabazon Dinosaurs were created as a road side attraction by a man with a deep love of Dino's! 

Karen and I are both wearing the new Varley collection! Varley is an athletic wear brand based out of LA and what better place to run around in public in one-pieces than the 90 degree weather of Palm Springs in NOVEMBER. We've accessorized our outfits with white tennis shoes and Wildfox Sunnies. Karen is wearing Confetti Lips, lip color in Moss Rose. Confetti Lips is an all natural lipstick line based in Los Angeles, the perfect present to buy for any Christmas present!
