Coachella 2017

This past weekend I attended Coachella 2017 Week 1 and it was so fun! I attended a couple of private parties, had fun with some of my other blogger friends and got to wear cute outfits.¬†What’s not to love??

Many people attend for different reasons, but being a Fashion Blogger I think Coachella is a great opportunity to express your best sense of style! To try new things and just have fun with what you wear. Specially since I don’t live in San Francisco anymore where I could experiment everyday so here’s what I wore…

I wore this look to the POPSUGAR party and loved how easy it was to put together. The top is actually a pearl bralette from Forever 21, as are the necklaces and the powder blue shorts. I just loved how it went together and let’s face it, the desert was over 100 degrees that day so I needed the right outfit to be able to enjoy the weekend.

I paired it with this cute Joh Apparel blue jacket with fringe at the sides to keep things fun and interesting and added my new loves… My platform blush sandals from Kaanas. I’m obsessed with these! Plus they are really comfortable so they were perfect for Coachella <3

Layering necklaces is always a must and I actually had a pearl choker that ended up going perfect with the bralette! So it looks like it’s part of it when in reality they are two separate items, just having fun with the outfit.

Rachel Zoe Coachella 2017

This look was for the Rachel Zoe or as they called it Zoeasis party! I had such a good time here. They set it up at this beautiful garden with roses everywhere! It reminded me of Alice in Wonderland at the queen’s castle but somehow mixed up with the fun Coachella vibes, perfect decor.

For this look I wore a BEBE jumpsuit, my PARED Eyewear (my new faves), added some checkers and arm jewellery and good to go! Honestly I really wanted some pop of color and this was just what I was looking for. I was comfy all day but still in that festival mood I was going for ūüėČ What did you guys think?

I took a few videos of the weekend that I will upload pretty soon, so stay tuned for more!

As always, thank you for reading.

Maybe She’s A Wildflower

Learning how to work with friends is a very rewarding experience. I’ve had the pleasure to work with many blogger friends but this week I collaborated in a different way. My friend Vincent from Myself Vincent¬†started pursuing photography, I trust his vision and skill so we decided to work on two sessions together. For the first one I wanted a more editorial look, something that would inspire and that would remind me of why I love what I do! That’s why I chose the title of “Maybe she’s a Wildflower”, it reminds me of Lewis Carroll’s work in Alice in Wonderland. I wanted to set that as the tone for this shoot so with that in mind, I chose a dress from ¬†Cleobella¬†that is very simple but beautiful. They are a brand that I have followed for a while so I’ve been very excited to feature them. Also we picked a location that would let the dress flow to give a “story telling vibe” and kept the accessories very minimal. But of course, being a field there were rattle snake sounds all around us, so that was very nerve-racking!! But I am happy to say it was all worth it.

Now, I know I haven’t done this type of photoshoot in a while but I hope you guys like it…
