Here’s another example of my love for mixing metals! This time it wasn’t all in the jewelry, though. I matched the metallic, silver sweater with the silver zippers on the ankles of my skinnies. Then I paired rose gold accessories with my nails with touches of yellow gold throughout, like on my sunnies and in my bracelets! I kept my makeup soft and natural but stayed in the same color-scheme with copper lids & pinky-brown lips.
Also, these new wedges by Sam Edelman are a MUST! I love the added height and the aztec-print detail! They could go with just about anything, and are currently on sale, which is why I think I might need a second pair, but in ivory! Speaking of versatility, I brought along my trusty Calvin Mitchell bag along for the ride. I mean, how could I not? Look at all those pockets, it’s like it KNOWS I have Mary Poppins problems or something.

I love swimsuits, but my love for swim-suit cover-ups is on another level. Cover-ups that are easy to put on and have fun prints and colors have me at hello and BECCA by Rebecca Virtue checks all of those boxes. The crochet one-piece is literal heaven and amazingly stretchy, and the printed pants are versatile and could be worn for more than just swimwear. I am a major fan of this brand for that reason and I cannot wait to get my hands on more, because this Arizona sun is calling my name.

I still remember the very first time I learned about the musical and arts festival. It was six years ago (which was 2009 for those of you that are mathematically challenged) and during my senior year of high school. An acquaintance of mine and her friend started talking excitedly about this mysterious place that I had never heard of before. They described the location of this event that occurred in Indio Valley as, “Coachella.” Considering the year, the fact that I never heard the term before, and because they started rambling on about the incredible fashion there, I summed it up to basically a swap meet of hippies hawking designer Coach handbags in the middle of the desert on the way to California from Arizona. I blame them for their lackadaisical description, not my wandering mind taking off into a sea of beige and brown Coach purses which I couldn’t afford.
Flash forward a few years later and I started seeing the word, “Coachella” splashed across trashy magazines at the check-out line featuring the rich and famous wearing bohemian-chic attire. I immediately felt sheepish for writing it off as a nondescript Coach outlet and started paying more attention to the fashion it was inspiring. Crop tops! Floral print! Over-sized sunglasses! Distressed high-waist shorts! Fringe! Crochet! And the flower crowns, oh how the flower crowns where everywhere and on everyone. Soon, it was acceptable to wear this flower-child garb in every-day life. Yes, even the flower-crowns were dubbed worthy of grocery shopping. However, now that I am aware of the greatness that composes Coachella, (innumerable celebrity spottings anyone?) I now must attend this Coachella. But alas, tickets are too expensive and I’m a newly married college student.
But I can still pretend, imagination is free after all. So, if I were at Coachella right now, which I’m not, this is what I would be wearing. What would you be wearing, or what did you wear/are you wearing if you’re in attendance right now? Tell me, I won’t be insurmountably jealous. Promise.

I have been wanting a messenger bag for such a long time and this one by Calvin Mitchell was exactly what I had been searching for. I love that it has so many different compartments for all of your things! It has credit card slots, pen holders, a cell phone holder and an eyeglass holder! If you’re anything like me, your bag starts to resemble that of Mary Poppins after a while. It’s the worst when you’re fumbling around in a black hole trying to find your keys, wallet, phone, lipstick, snacks, etc., so this was the perfect anecdote! I really love the cognac color too, because it can go with anything! They also have other handbags, travel bags and even briefcases. I’m really digging this cross body woven purse!
I paired this duster cardigan with an all white ensemble and plenty of rose gold accessories. I don’t normally shop at Forever 21 because I find the quality to be sub-par. But they have been steppin’ up their game lately! I have found myself wandering inside their store or online more frequently. I spotted these rose gold loafers and about died from over-stimulation of cuteness. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find them online, but I’ll keep trying because everyone needs them!

I am really obsessing over fringe, so when I spotted this purse I knew I had to have it! It suprisingly fits so much stuff in it and I love bags that can fit all my goodies. This is for sure a statement bag, which is an element that I adore. Calvin Mitchell has so many amazing leather bags and duffle bags! I already have my eye on this one and this one.
