I am a little behind with blogging after being swamped with event planning + work but here I am prepping for Coachella with one of my boho chic dresses paired with the cutest mini bag that is perfect to wear to any festival! Although I am not one to attend the actual festival (I am more of a party + hang by the pool gal), I always like to dress the part – I mean who doesn’t love an easy boho chic look? 😉
I love a great fit + flare dress, especially a fun printed dress like this one that is great to wear year round (not just for Coachella). The flared sleeves are an added bonus, I am all about a fun sleeve now-a-days!
I usually style one of these dresses with a lace bandeau underneath for added comfort + a little lace detail if needed (especially if it is a deep v neck cut).
This Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.B. tote is great for festival season since it fits all your essentials, is comfy to style + carry + matches with everything (especially when you style it with a metallic hue like this one)!
When it comes to shoes, I opted for a cute tan chunky heel bootie with peep toes. Perfect way to show off your new pedi but also keep your feet from getting dirty at the festival in flip flops or sandals (plus the chunky heel makes them very comfortable).
ICMYI – Festival Season shopping is in full swing with Coachella just weeks away so I wanted to share one of my favorite trends I LOVE wearing out in Palm Desert and that is…yup, you guessed it – PALM TREES + PALM PRINT! I mean seriously, who doesn’t love palm print for summer anyway but when in Palm Springs, I think palm trees + palm print on your clothing is kinda a requirement, no? :p
Whether you are heading to the festival, lounging by the pool or off to some parties (or hey maybe you are just chillin’ at home + love some desert vibes)…these picks are perfect to keep you cool + stylish in the desert heat all weekend long!
Happy Humpday ♥ Ugh the struggle is seriously real today…after a 4 day holiday weekend the last thing I want to do is head back to the office but the show must go on, right? :p All I want to do is head back to the beach, have some BBQ + relax…but I guess this is what adulting is like haha So…I decided in order to cheer myself up I would take advantage of some of the 4th of July Sales I rounded up on the blog yesterday! What cheers ya up better than shopping, am I right? 😉
Since I am dreaming of another relaxing weekend, I am throwing it back to this floral look I wore at one of my favorite desert hot spots to relax at…the La Quinta Resort + Spa in Palm Springs! Palm Springs is one of my favorite places to go to, even in this hot summer desert heat, it is my little piece of paradise what can I say. Since it is way over 100 degrees there now, a kimono is the go to piece to wear when heading out at night after a super hot day.
I love a great floral piece…especially a kimono cardigan like this one. It is great to style with shorts, jeans, a dress or a skirt…very versatile for any occasion. I am linking to some of my favorites below.
Anytime I am in the desert I bring every pair of denim shorts I own along with chiffon lightweight camisoles that can be styled up or down depending on the occasion.
Happy Thursday Babes ♥ Spring means it is time to add a P O P of Color to your wardrobe (heck, you know me…I add color year round hehe :p). Color was in full force when shooting this look since I shot it at the ever so colorful Saguaro Palm Springs (ICYMI it is one of the most colorful hotels in Palm Springs that pretty much every blogger takes pictures at).
All a gal like me needs is a cute outfit, some great lighting + the perfect backdrop (luckily Palm Springs is the ideal place for all three!) This blue crochet dress from Target was an end of the season sale buy back in the fall for last summer but I held onto it tight till spring hit. Luckily Target has a few similar styles currently in stock which I link to below 🙂
I am always one for a comfy yet stylish dress and for some reason I am loving bell sleeves + crochet this season, so I linked to a few similar styles below.
A summer shoe staple are tan sandal wedges like these beauties from Tory Burch (my summer staple purchase last year) but there are some similar styles available below 🙂
One of my favorite bag brands to rock year round is GiGi NY. From clutches to totes to satchels + more, GiGi NY (made in my hometown on Long Island) are great quality leather and always on trend!
