Palm Springs Chic: Hillary Kerr Hits the Open Road in Style

17 Mar


It’s a no brainer that when embarking on a lengthy road trip, an easy and relaxed outfit is in order. But, when said road trip is to the super stylish city of Palm Springs and you’re a fashion writer with flare and a penchant for great accessories, the ensemble needs to be chic, versatile and comfortable.

When Hillary Kerr hit the open road on the ultimate dream escape to Palm Springs, she went wearing her adorable and essential sunglasses, 7 For All Mankind’s versatile and slimming Slim Illusion Jeans and an appetite for adventure.


“There’s something about Palm Springs that I’ve always adored.” Says Hillary. “It was the destination for my first “real” girls’ trip with my friend after high school and I always manage to find inspiration there.”

She still considers it an amazing girl’s get away and frequents The Parker Palm Springs and The Colony Palms hotels for the gorgeous and relaxing atmosphere.

While endlessly lounging around the pool is always the ultimate temptation while in Palm Springs, Hillary really took advantage of immersing herself in the beauty of the vast open desert and the freedom of the open road.

“I always love seeing the Cabazon Dinosaurs: they just never fail to delight. I was a huge dinosaur fan when I was little, so every time I see them, I feel like a kid again.” She says of one of her favorite Palm  Springs attractions.


Wearing her trusty Slim Illusion Mid Rise Skinny in Powder Blue and eye catching Slim Illusion Ankle Skinny in Royal Blue, she was seamlessly able to go from the car to a few pit stops along the way and all the way through to sight seeing and cocktails at one of her favorite haunts.


The revolutionary fabric of the jeans retains it’s shape throughout the day and night and as witnessed on Hillary, always looks sleek, chic and ready for anything.

Along with a few pairs of Slim Illusion, Hillary packed other stylish road trip essentials like colorful cross body bags, oversized sunnies, vintage rock t’s and a sumptuous leather jacket. Part rock, part route 66 – her look couldn’t be better for a dream escape to the desert.


But besides the clothes, there are other important road trip essentials, like snacks, music and a great traveling companion.

“You want a great person sitting shotgun, as they’re in charge of controlling the music and directions,” says Hillary. “Having the perfect playlist—well, several, in my case—is also of paramount importance. I’ve been on a real soul and Motown kick lately, so “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone” by The Temptations is the must-have song to start your road trip right. This is silly, but I also have a thing about Corn Nuts; I never eat them unless I’m on a road trip, so that’s an essential snack. And finally, a fountain soda, preferably Diet Pepsi, with crushed ice, is my favorite on-the-road beverage.”

We couldn’t agree more.
