1 | Up Top!  Instagrammable Spots in Palm Springs

Kimpton Rowan

One of my favorite evening activities is heading to the rooftop at Kimpton Rowan for some rosé and photos at High Bar. The views of the mountains are the perfect Instagram backdrop—don’t forget to check out the tile in Juniper Table or the super-chic lobby!

2 | Prick-ture Perfect Instagrammable Spots in Palm Springs

Moorten Botanical Garden

On weekends I love to throw on my favorite casual outfit and head to Moorten Botanical Garden in Palm Springs. The cactarium is a favorite spot of mine for the chicest desert photos.

3 | The Prince and the Photo Opper

Elizabeth & Prince

The Uptown District in Palm Springs offers not only great shopping but also the cutest photo ops!  Elizabeth & Prince has the perfect “selfie” mirror and their Moroccan-influenced design makes a gorgeous backdrop.

4 | Say Kreem! Instagrammable Spots in Palm Springs


As summer approaches, I live in sundresses and can’t live without a cold treat! Kreem has delicious homemade ice cream and almond milk lattes as well as the chicest backdrop to show off your order. Snap a pic in front of the all-white building or inside by the colorful counter.

5 | Float on Instagrammable Spots in Palm Springs


Have you even really been to Palm Springs if you don’t have a fabulous pool photo to prove it?  I love heading to Arrive on my day off, grabbing a colorful pool floaty (and glass of rosé) for the perfect Insta photo.

6 | A Walk in The Parker

The Parker 

I will find any excuse to get all dressed up and head to The Parker. The photo ops are endless, but a few of my favorites include the breeze block entry, the lobby and the adults-only pool (complete with yellow umbrellas).

7 | The Royale Treatment

Villa Royale 

When I want to throw on my most ‘Palm Springs’ outfit and pretend I am on the ultimate desert vacay, I head to Villa Royale. The lobby and pool feature tons of black and white Moroccan tile, the coolest backdrop for any outfit photo!
