If there are two trends to stay on top of this spring, I would have to say they are hats and floral print. At least if you dress somewhat bohemian like I do. I love floral for spring (actually all year round)… but the print definitely makes a huge comeback around the spring time. I love mixing the print with wide brim hats, which are also huge this spring. Combining the two trends gives you a really effortless, relaxed bohemian vibe.
This was my first year at Coachella and I can tell you that it won’t be my last. Last weekend was filled with everything I love: live music, photography, friends, and the occasional drink (wink-y face). It was jam packed and I was super nervous about planning and how everything would turn out, but everything went as smooth as it could’ve gone. I planned out my outfits beforehand, and I’m glad that I packed wayyy more than I needed to. For three days of parties and festival-going, it’s definitely good to have options if you need a quick outfit change. Here’s a little snapshot of what I did each day:
If there’s one item I could wear for the rest of the spring and summer season, it would be a wrap dress. They are so easy to wear, just throw one on and boom you’ve got an entire outfit. Not only that, but also they are forgiving and flattering for all body shapes and sizes. For festival season, I’ll give you all a spoiler of one of my outfits, it’s a wrap dress! (lol) I may or may not be wearing it over some shorts and a bralette… Either way, wrap dresses come in all different patterns and fabrics and they are a great option for a flattering spring look.
This past weekend, I had the most wonderful staycation at The Redondo Beach Hotel with my friend Jonilyn Brown of My Curated Closet. It was so incredible to actually explore the South Bay for a weekend! Since moving here, I haven’t been able to get out much and explore this area (most of my friends live in Santa Monica or on the East Side, so I drive over there every chance I get). We arrived on Friday night and stayed until Sunday morning, with a bunch of activities in between. Read on to see what we did!
A few weeks ago, I went to the Whimsy + Row launch party, to celebrate the launch of the new clothing line. Whimsy + Row is a local LA-based brand created by the wonderful Rachel Temko, who had a vision to create a lifestyle brand for creative, adventurous women who have an appreciation for vintage, sustainable, and exquisitely feminine pieces. I think the brand embodies just that. The new Eco Collection embodies the laid back California cool girl, with it’s sustainable fabrics and earth tones. I am personally IN LOVE with the new line and all that it stands for.
Festival season is here! I don’t know about you guys, but I am officially stoked this year. It is the first year ever that I will be headed to Coachella, for work and for the blog. I’ve been to other music fests, but not the biggest of the big. There’s a lot that goes into planning these festivities, especially what to wear. As a fashion blogger, my motto with festivals is to go big or go home. Some of my favorite festival looks last year were from bloggers who did just that: Late Afternoon, and We Wore What, two of my favs. As you can see, they were both on the practical side, however. There are definitely some things that need to be considered when choosing an outfit for a festival. Keep reading to find out what to wear to festivals!
