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!

Saltwater Gypsy

Top: Forever 21, Skirt: BCBG, Necklaces: Forever 21, H&M, Nordstrom  |  Captured by LUX

If fashion is art, then wearing all white is minimalism at its finest. Such a chic and simple color that is perfect for either blending in or standing out. I layered on the Native American-inspired necklaces and stacked a bunch of chunky bracelets. The large beaded bracelet I’m wearing was actually a necklace from a Cinco de Mayo celebration at a Mexican restaurant, fun times! I’m not Mexican in the least bit, but I’m all for celebrations. I grew up in the suburbs but my disposition lies in the nomadic ways of a gypsy. Wearing all this jewelry and splashing in the tides under the blazing sun channels a spirit within me that is wild and free. 

I’ve been told I could save a lot of time if I took more selfies and mirror pictures of my outfit-of-the-day, but that’s not nearly as fulfilling as exploring the unseen while showcasing my style and self-expression. [But hey, I do love me a good selfie!] It’s quite an adventure every time I shoot with Lux. We trampled off trail, climbed over massive boulders and waded through waist deep tides to discover this magnificent paradise. I love what I do, and it gives me great joy to share this with whomever digs my vibes. Thanks a ton for stopping by, my loves. I hope your day is as marvelous as you!

My Festival Favorites

Greetings, world! Here's my friend Grace and I being silly splashing around in Indio. We danced our way through Coachella weekend 1 and it was nothing short of spectacular! Then I hopped in the car and went on an impromptu trip to LA, which seemed like a perpetual SoCal vacation for me..but now I'm back! I thought it'd be cool to share some of my favorite looks at Coachella. Hope you guys enjoy!

Chiefs of Chella:

It's always fun seeing a matching group! Props to guys who wear short shorts loud and proud!

Aurora Lights

This look is so on point, even her camera strap looks chic! Love the brilliant colors on this flowy dress worn with Balenciaga-inspired boots and ruffle ankle socks. Hot pink lips to match her purse, this girl's got the details down to the T!

Native Language

This printed cardigan is everything! Long cardigans project bohemian vibes and cover just enough of that itty bitty outfit underneath. Gladiator sandals are the perfect piece to complete this boho look.

Bohemian Nights

On Left: Tie-dye doesn't have to be rainbow bright! Loving the colors on this summery romper paired with nude booties. Her fringe messenger bag and studded strap is simply gorgeous and adds a boho twist! 

On Right: Maxi dresses are are a chic way to stay cool under the blazing sun! I'm drawn to the color and print of her dress paired with rose gold jewelry. A long necklace perfectly complements a long dress.

Golden Hour

It's good to know what works for your skin/body type and this girl has got it down! White and coral are the perfect colors that complement her gorgeous tan. Now how about these lacy pants! I love how they're both delicate and sassy. She ties the look together with a simple flower crown, leaving all the attention to these "fancy pants."

Sheer Delight

Denim shorts are a music festival staple, but sheer and flowy dresses will get you noticed. Loving this gypsy look; from the dangling coin necklace to the arm bands and floppy hat..yes, yes and yes!! To me, these looks are reminiscent of Alessandra Ambrosio's Coachella fashions.

Minty Fresh

Here's a refreshing take on men's festival fashions. Loving this beachy look out in the desert. His clothes are simple but it's the bold sunglasses and hair that make this look stand out. 

Fringe Benefits

Mesh, embroidery, crochet, and fringes; different textures = black and white done right! Love how these cuties have a theme going on. 

Desert Oasis

On Left: I love me some royal blue. The halter top is back! Props to girls who aren't shy to carry around a purple umbrella--get your Gwen Stefani on, doll!

On Right: There's so much going on and the best part is that she makes it work. Some say headdresses are a music festival no-no, but I have to admit this one is particularly pretty. Dangling coin necklaces (for lack of a better term) are so hot right now and same goes for mirrored sunglasses. Airy hippie pants are a chic and casual way to stay cool in the desert. 

Hot Springs

Cutie with a booty! How hot is this look? I saw this babe from a distance and literally ran after her LOL because this outfit is just that awesome. Hot pink chiffon paired with a scoop back tank top is simply perfection.

Fresh as a Daisy

Bikini bottoms at a music festival are for the bold! Love her daisy top and its playful fringes.

Desert Rose

"Baby put on heart-shaped sunglasses, 'cause we're gonna take a ride." --Lana Del Rey fans rejoice! These pretties do it best in their gorgeous maxi skirts.

On Left: I'm obsessed with her tribal print skirt coupled with side slits and a black bikini on top, because life is all about balance. 

On Right: Can we talk about this amazing gypsy belt? Such a chic accessory to her simple skirt, because whites are always nice. 

Purple Haze

Last but not least: Here's Grace, Angel and I in our fun and flirty outfits designed by Angel! I loved our luscious flower crowns and wore mine all weekend! She can top off any custom order from accessories to all kinds of dresses. Visit her site for more: http://www.lipglossclubwear.net/
