Its Mondaaaayyy!! So a fresh new post up for you guys!

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that this outfit is a little delayed, but better late than never! It has been a crazy 3 weeks for me especially with two consecutive weekends of Coachella, and by saying so there are more outfit posts from weekend two coming up next!

ok, now on to the good stuff.....Sometimes I wonder what life would be like if  there was such fashionable backpacks around during my high school days? Unfortunately for me there wasn't, so I decided  why not do it now! This is my absolute favorite piece that you all have seen me rocking throughout the festival. 
It was time to bring out my inner gypsy by mixing this bohemian style sun dress with an urban style backpack, it most definitely works well if you keep the colors neutral. I love how lightweight this dress is , it really makes me embrace the essence of spring!

Coffee Breaks w/ Evelina

posted on: Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Good Morning lovlies! Todays blog post is a super special one! My dear friend Evelina and I decided to take a break away from the computer and our crazy schedules to grab some coffee at one of my favorite spots in West Hollywood....Alfred. We wanted to shoot a little blog collab to capture our daily outfits, and do a bit of catching up!! 

Funny enough Evelina and I met on twitter. She totally rocked one of my favorite sunnies I was wearing , and tweeted me. We planned to meet up at EDCLV last year with no cell reception, 100,000s of people, but luckily enough she spotted me... it was fate, and the rest is history!

You can never go wrong with denim on denim. Spring is in the air, so add a bit of color to your simple outfit with a bright colored cross body bag!

After two consecutive weekends of Dust, Heat Music and Dancing in Palm Springs, Coachella is sadly over for the year. I am happy to be back in LA catching up on my outfit posts!

The 70's are back with a vengeance, and I am totally digging it. Off the shoulder shirts, denim shorts and a stylish backpack are the perfect festival necessities! slap on a pair of basic round sunnies and booties and off to dance your night away!

Deserted in the Desert

posted on: Wednesday, April 15, 2015

If only we could be this fashionable and stranded all the time. It was finally time for it was an excuse to get a little dressed up for my road trip! I headed up to Palm Springs with my NYC friends Jeff Thibodeau  (the most amazing photog ) and blogger babe Bridget Bahl. After being stuck in traffic for about 3 hours, we decided to pull over and take a couple photos alongside the desert scene. The crisp white sand and afternoon light coordinated perfectly with our outfits!

#9WStyle Road Trip to Coachella

posted on: Wednesday, April 8, 2015

 Only two days away from the biggest festival of the year!!! #Coachella. I am overly excited to get out of the city and hit the road to Palm Springs.

Luckily for you guys years of attendance has made me somewhat of an expert at preparing and packing for the big event! Deciding on what to wear can be half the fun! 

One thing I have learned throughout the years is that festival fashion needs to be COMFORTABLE. Since I will be attending several private events and pool parties, finding the perfect heel can be tricky, but luckily enough I got my hands on two pairs of the most complacent shoes from Nine West. First up these off white classic woven Waldrid wedge sandals will go with just about all my day time outfits. Classic yet chic.

When at the actual festival, keep in mind that your shoes will get a little bit dirty and your feet will ache. With extra padding on the footbed these Slip on Sneakers sooth your feet. Leopard print blends perfectly with the desert scene.

Last but not least a felt hat is an absolute MUST. Simply trendy but also extremely useful when it comes to the scorching desert heat!!

Racq Tips:(always take your shoes for a little test drive....wear them around your house to work them in)
