meganwelker-trinaturk-4 meganwelker-trinaturk-7 meganwelker-trinaturk-20 meganwelker-trinaturk-9 How and when did Trina Turk begin?

I started the company in 1995 after working as a designer for other companies for 12 years.  At the very beginning, I worked out of our house in Los Angeles.

meganwelker-trinaturk-53 meganwelker-trinaturk-55 meganwelker-trinaturk-46 Trina Turk is such a quintessential Palm Springs shop, tell us about the importance of having a boutique in that city?

Although we live and work in Los Angeles, Trina Turk has become closely associated with the “cocktails by the pool”  and mid-century modern lifestyle of Palm Springs.  We have been fortunate to ride the wave of the renaissance of Palm Springs since we opened our boutique there in 2002.  Trina Turk and Mr Turk are often mentioned in press regarding the city, and the connection between our brands and Palm Springs has taken on a life of it’s own.

meganwelker-trinaturk-38 meganwelker-trinaturk-43 meganwelker-trinaturk-48 meganwelker-trinaturk-64 The design of the shop is so gorgeous, talk to us about it and what influenced it…

The original boutique—now the Trina Turk shop—was designed by Kelly Wearstler.  We  channeled the swanky vibe of Palm Springs in the early 70’s, using reflective surfaces like foil wallpaper, mirror tile, chrome and lucite with a pop of acid yellow.   Our wallpapered dressing rooms have become a favorite instagram stop.  The swim shop, the Mr Turk shop, and Trina Turk Residential were designed by Barbara Bestor in a store expansion a few years ago.  The design is clean and modern with a nod to Albert Frey, the architect of the building which houses our shops. He also designed many other Palm Springs landmarks, including City Hall and the winged Visitor’s Center at the north end of town.

meganwelker-trinaturk-32 meganwelker-trinaturk-36 How does the city of Palm Springs inspire the Trina Turk collection?

The desert is a place where it feels right to wear color because of the strong clear light, so the climate and landscape have a lot to do with the inspiration.  It’s a resort destination which encourages wearing something more fun, more colorful, more vivid than you might wear at home.   The architecture is also an inspiration—what would you like to wear by the pool of a beautiful architectural home

meganwelker-trinaturk-62 meganwelker-trinaturk-79 meganwelker-trinaturk-57 meganwelker-trinaturk-54  What are your favorite trends for Spring/Summer 2016?  

I naturally love all the prints, bright color, print mixing, mixed media and bohemian influences.  I also love head to toe white.

 In three words, describe Trina Turk’s style…  

Optimistic, California, Vibrant

meganwelker-trinaturk-72 meganwelker-trinaturk-90 meganwelker-trinaturk-95 meganwelker-trinaturk-103  What is your favorite piece for Spring/Summer in your collection right now?

From the current collection I love the hand crocheted poncho.

 What are a few of your favorite Palm Springs destinations, from a local??

My favorite shop for vintage jewelry and decorative accessories for the home is Bon Vivant.

For furniture—Modern Way or Hedge in Cathedral City.

The cold brew ice coffee from Koffi is delicious.

Reservoir at the Arrive Hotel for breakfast, or Cheeky’s if you get there early—otherwise it’s a long wait.

The lobster and mango salad at Norma’s at the Parker for lunch.

Birba for casual italian food.

King’s Highway at the Ace Hotel for lunch or casual dinner.

Now, us lucky ladies even got to take some pieces home, and we are so excited to share some of the images with you today!!  We went all Summer all the way with some bright prints for extra fun!!

Here’s our lovely Leah in the Loretta Dress that can be a chic cover up and also be worn out and about, we love it for the pool or for a casual afternoon out with friends!  And that detail on the neckline has us like woah!!

meganwelker-trinaturk-133 meganwelker-trinaturk-142 meganwelker-trinaturk-151 Here’s the always stylish Abby wearing the cutest Corbin Short and the Anja Sweater together… We love the fun bright print on the short paired with the Summer white light weight sweater, plus, that fringe on the sweater just kills it!!

meganwelker-trinaturk-163 meganwelker-trinaturk-165 meganwelker-trinaturk-173 Last but not least, is me, just bumping along in this killer Kaftan!!  I am all about the kaftan and this Nevan Dress has the prettiest print with the prettiest colors, perfect for Summer!

Beijos Palm Springs Style

Going along with our Palm Springs Girls Day Out week and the hottest giveaway ever (If you haven’t entered yet..you should now!! Click here), we thought we would share our style with you and where we got our outfits from.  First of all Palm Springs has to be one of our most favorite spots to visit here in sunny California.  When researching where to go, what to do and what to wear, it’s kind of a big deal and a lot of planning goes into it. We want to be at the best places, do the most exciting things and wear the best pieces while exploring this magical little town.  This special girls day out we went with one of our favorite brands…Show Me Your Mumu.  They are easy breezy fun, flirty and the prints are amazeballs!!  No doubt every time we wear a piece we are complimented and we feel like a million bucks!

Let’s start with our ultra cool sunnies we used all weekend by Raen Optics.   Abby, chose the Fairback in Ivory smoke, they scream vintage, but modern too(Click on the pic to buy them)! meganwelker-palmsprings-195

Jacquelyn picked the amazing Norie Sunnies in Petal Green gradient lens.  These babies are so fun for Spring/Summer…that lens tho…(Click on the picture to purchase these guys). meganwelker-palmsprings-199

And my pick are the Volant sunnies in Red Crystal with smoke lens. Classic shape with a fun sunny color (Click on the pic to buy).

Abby’s shoes are so cute, we all wore similar tan tie up sandals that day.  These are by Urge, called the Xena sandal…Wear these everyday in Summer (Click on the pic to buy)??

meganwelker-palmsprings-256

And we cannot forget about this amazing Cleobella clutch!! It’s called the Greenwich (click on the picture to purchase the ivory one) and it’s kind of a necessity!!

Beijos Getaway – Palm Springs

It’s that time again, another Beijos Girls Day Out, however we’ve decided to switch it up a bit… These are now complete getaways and we are loving it!  It started with our road trip to Ojai and this time we are going to a new spot, and we thought, these are turning into full blown weekends of fun, so it’s no longer a “day out” but a BEIJOS GETAWAY!!

This recent girls getaway was to Palm Springs, we always love our girl time but in one of our favorite places ever?!  Now that’s an epic weekend in the making!  We love everything about Palm Springs, the sun and heat, the shopping and food, the landscapes and pools, you name it!  We’ve all been many, many times, but not all 3 of us together at once.

meganwelker-palmsprings-323 meganwelker-palmsprings-265 For this trip we stayed at the insanely good Sycamore House, the quintessential Palm Springs home that makes for the perfect space for fun.  We will  be sharing a full home tour on that tomorrow!!  We visited some of the best vintage and modern shops and some real yummy food and cocktail spots.

Best of all we are offering the ultimate Palm Springs Getaway for our readers!!  You can find all of the details over on Green Wedding Shoes where it is featured today, and be sure to head to Instagram to follow Beijos Events, Green Wedding Shoes and Megan Welker for your chance to win!!  More on that giveaway later…
