The Hideaway

I think one of the highlights of our Palm Springs trip was our hotel.  I find it difficult to find words for how much I love this place. So, hey, what’s better than words? Pictures! And there are a lot! Because not only am I going to show you the swank hotel is that we stayed at but also my swimsuit and another outfit I packed to stay cool in the hot Palm Springs sun…

We stayed at The Hideaway, which is part of the Orbit In.  The Orbit In was built in 1957, then it was known as The Village Manor and was renovated to become The Orbit In in 2001.  A year later The Hideaway opened.  Built in 1947, it was originally the Town and Desert, and both properties were built by Herbert Burns.

The Hideaway features a saline swimming pool flanked by loungers as well as glorious cacti and fruit trees.  Additionally, there is a lounge that includes fabulous mid-century furniture and photos of the hotel by famed photographer Julius Shulman.

Pretty swell place, huh?

Swimsuit: Beach Bash, Bettie Page Store, Portland.  A note on this: I purchased a medium, which fit comfortably in the bust and hips (a small was too tight in those areas), but was loose in the waist.  So I recommend attempting to find a shop that carries Beach Bash and try the suits on to make sure you like the fit.  I was fine with this being loose in the waist because you move a lot when you swim and you want to be comfortable.

Outfit: Koret of California, Patti Smith West, Portland.  I bought this stellar pink, blue and navy outfit months ago, but obviously it was too cold in Oregon to wear just yet, but I knew it would be perfect for this trip.  And the best part is that it has the shirt in pink too!

  1. Beautiful, reminds me of the Palm Springs mad men episode. Your hair is so nicely done up in the rolls, would love for you to do a post tutorial on a couple of your hair styles. Also really liked your hair style a while back when you did the patio/squaw dress post!

  2. Ahhh, what a gorgeously inviting location! I can completely see why you were/are head-over-heels for it. Love your cute swimsuit and charming skirt and blouse ensemble. So summery, sweet and stylish!

  3. It looks straight out of a by-gone era. I almost expect to see Don Draper sunning himself on one of those recliners ( in the first Californian episode of Mad Men). The interior IS quite swank…I just adore curve couches and the blonde furniture sets it off so well.

    You look fabo in your retro bathing suit (they are not my friend, so I have stuck clear of them so far).But for me your day wear stole the show- I am loving that blouse’s neckline and button detail.
    Glad you’ve had a nice holiday! xx Shauna

  4. Oh my gosh, I love everything about this… your hair, the pool, the Curtis Jere sculpture above the fireplace, the lemon trees… It’s like a time warp! Also, for some reason I think David Lynch needs to film something there. Is that weird? I can’t figure out why it makes me think of David Lynch! Weird.

    But so lovely.
