Picture this… Flowly Maxis, floral head bands, sweet sundresses and a weekend just the two of you. We’re talking about the new trend in the world of expecting mothers, the baby moon. Besides the anticipation of meeting your new bundle of joy, mother-to-be’s are now heading to relaxing destinations in preparation for their new adventure into motherhood.
For the west coast mommas, we take you to a desert oasis like no other. A short ride down the I-10, where the name of the game is pampering, fabulous food and poolside lounging, you’ll find Palm Springs. My husband and I just love vacationing here.
Besides the numerous golf courses for him, relax your little bump by the countless pools with a delicious mock-tail in hand. After you’ve spent the day lounging about and you’ve worked up your appetite, ride into downtown for delicious bites at some of the locals favorite spots. My husband and I are total foodies so when we come to town we make sure to hit up our favorite spots. For Brunch there are two spot’s you must try! First would be Cheeky’s, a modern space for creative breakfast & lunch sandwiches, with bacon flights & specialty cinnamon rolls, your taste buds will be on another level. Our second favorite spot for brunch would be Pinocchio in the Desert, this lively stop with kitschy decor for familiar eats, including plentiful breakfast & sandwich options also provides an hourly music and dance show to entice your pallet and will leave you entertained and wanting to come back. For a late lunch or dinner also try Tinto, Lulu California Bistro, Bill’s pizza or Las Casuelas Terraza.
So what to pack? We are loving all things floral, flowy and bold for this oasis getaway. Here are some of our favorites that rate baby moon worthy! For a day of lounging and brunching our Blue Tie Dye Cold Shoulder Maternity Maxi Dress is your go-to choice! One of our favorite retro prints combined with a trendy cold shoulder style has us in love with this maternity maxi dress. A breezy side slit detail keeps you cool which is a must while in the desert. Pair this maxi with sandals and a long necklace for a boho inspired look.
For a day shopping in downtown try our Yellow Sleeveless Cross Back Maternity Dress. Perfect for the day’s warm weather, a sleeveless cut and trendy cross back detail will effortlessly show off your bump while keeping you looking chic and on point. Dress this piece up with wedges and a statement necklace or keep it casual with sandals and a floral headband.
Last but not least, probably our top dress made perfectly for Palm Springs would be our Navy Pink Floral Wrap Maternity Maxi. With its bold print and “take me on a romantic date” attitude, this floral maternity maxi dress has all the right details to make you feel gorgeous from head to toe. Style this maxi dress with wedges and a layered necklace for a show stopping evening look. So your bags are packed and you’re ready to go, time for some pre-baby R+R. Enjoy!
