Drugstore Cowboy

And the award for "came out of nowhere" goes to the bodysuit! If you don't have a bodysuit, then you're a freaking loser! I'm just joking. But in all seriousness, bodysuits have been slowly but surely invading my closet slash life. They pair so well with mid/high waisted jeans or skirts, even denim shorts for a casual laid back look on a warm day! Steer clear of wearing them with low waisted bottoms in fear of an accentuated pooch. 

I felt a little barren and to be honest, a little basic with just a halter bodysuit and maxi skirt, so I added the Indiana Jones fedora for some much needed pizazz! Now I feel like the Cowboy who busts through the swinging doors of a saloon and I'm about to whoop somebody's ass! Who's with me? (Yeah, clothes take me places for sure).

Spotted at Coachella

Hi, my loves! For those who have been waiting for this post, my apologies that it took so long. I finally got around to editing these pics and here it is!

Coachella has become one of the biggest fashion showdowns of the year! Here are some swaggy individuals that caught my eye:

Spotted at Coachella - Barbara @missbmarques 

From her black mesh ensemble to her accessories. The purse, dainty necklaces and flash tattoos, this chick has got the details down to a tee!

Spotted at Coachella - LA blogger babe Naz - @thelanative

I first noticed her gypsy coin top - what a unique and gorgeous way to wear it! Since she's wearing all black, Naz plays it up with fun textures such as her lace shorts and embossed leather belt. Love the backpack, booties and bindi too. This look blew me away!

Spotted at Coachella - Model Bryana Holly @bhollyb

Love the details of her lace peasant top - off the shoulder tops are perfect for Coachella! Perfectly paired with layered necklaces and fun cat-eye sunnies. Babe alert!

Spotted at Coachella - Tiffany - @lilprincesstiff

Maxi skirts and mock neck tanks are one of my favorite combinations, a great way to stay cool in the desert! Extra points for the pretty lavender ombre!

Spotted at Coachella - Adriana - @adriiigaal

Sunnies should always be a statement piece. Love her rouge lips with matching bindi and earrings!

Spotted at Coachella - Brenda - @brendanguyen_xo

Her romper's color scheme is everything! Love a good tropical print. Not to mention the unicorn hair, and you gotta love a girl with a strong nail game.

Spotted at Coachella - Lily - @itslilychin and Adriana - @adrianasuyck

These tan beauties looking gorgeous in white and mirrored sunnies. Love Lily's shaggy vest and the placement of Ariana's flash tattoos.

Spotted at Coachella - Jenny - @jennyfletcher

Her top embodies a few of my favorite things: White, check. Sheer, check. Off the shoulder, check check check! I'm all about textures and her top is simply beautiful. Perfectly paired with awesome printed shorts.

Spotted at Coachella - Paola - @paola_red

Coming all the way from Italy, Paola's looking chic af. Loving the contrast between her lovely white lace dress and black set underneath. I wore a similar outfit lol, great minds think alike!

Spotted at Coachella - Trent - @trentrechan

Not too many guys can pull off a dashiki and this one is dope!

Spotted at Coachella - Child of Wild founder Eileen - @child_of_wild

Had a fan girl moment meeting this bold beauty! Check out her jewelry line and custom designed cow skulls here. Oh and Hot Couple Award goes to them!

Indiana Jane

ZI9A1371.jpg

This fedora makes me feel like I'm Indiana Jones and I should be cracking the whip somewhere, escaping everyday villains! It was a gift from the historically lush Beringer Vineyards just outside of Napa--their chardonnay was my favorite! Made by Scala, the hat costs the same as one from Urban Outfitters, but the ones from Urban suck in comparison and quality. The shape and construction of Scala's hats are a perfect ten. I'm pretty sure it's a men's fedora--what's with me and shopping in the men's section lately?

I like donning this hat with outfits of neutral tones. Wear it with jeans and a T-shirt, or a dress/skirt for a hipster, rock-and-roll flair!

P.S. How gorgeous is this greenery?

Hat: Scala, Skirt and Bralette: Urban Outfitters, Necklace: Free People, Boots: Vera Wang

Cut It Out

Dress: 2bella Boutique, Sandals: Michael Kors  |  Capture by Lux

Hi, friends! Today's look is all about cutouts. I've been seeing more and more cutouts on dresses, tops, pants and even shoes and I think they keep things interesting. If you're like me, you might have different variations of the same top. There's nothing wrong with a basic top, but it's nice to change it up and wear a different cut once in a while!

Caged, strappy or cutout tops show just enough skin to catch someone's eye without showing too much. How pretty is this caged dress from 2bella Boutique? I love the details such as the tiny rings connecting the straps and the embellished hem. Isn't the caged neckline more interesting than a basic tank dress? Because the dress is flowy, it pairs well with my Michael Kors gladiator sandals. Since this look is cute and a bit edgy, you could wear it day or night. I hope everyone is having a fabulous week! Thanks for reading, guys!
