COACHELLA 2013: Bags

Hello lovelies! This is the first in a mini series of Coachella-related posts. About once a week, I'll post about the music, fashion, art, and anything else related to Coachella. This is my first year attending the festival (I'm going Weekend 1: April 12-14) and I could not be more excited. 

Here's what bags I would bring to Coachella: something light, carryable, and not huge so that you aren't lugging around stuff all day (or trying to dance with it on).

Hope this helped!

Hello lovelies! Recently, I've been getting questions asking how to style different shoes, such as Dr. Martens and creeper-style shoes. To help you lovely people out, I decided to dedicate this whole post on how I style creepers! This is a compilation of outfits made on Polyvore and outfits I've worn in past OOTD's.

WISH LIST: Winter/Spring

Wildfox Wishlist

I am obsessed with this lighting bolt tank. I like wearing black, but it's normally quite hot in Southern California, so the tank cut is perfect! The "Bel Air" beanie is adorable too. I love these sunnies... their sorta like Wayfarers and Clubmasters mixed together. And the platforms are absolutely perfect.

What's on your wishlist?

Here's my outfit inspiration for Valentine's Day! Unfortunately, my school does not allow shorts (especially denim shorts), so like I said, this is inspiration.

be my valentine?

I'm honestly excited for Valentine's Day. Just cause I don't have a Valentine, doesn't mean I can't celebrate! I'll probably just end up watching soccer on TV, but that's still fun to me.

Hello lovelies! Today, I'm performing in my school's Coffee House. It's a yearly event hosted by the Honors Society with acoustic performances, poetry, and dance. I'm a freshman, (me and my friend are the only freshmen!) so it's my first time participating. I'm honestly really nervous. Here's what I'm wearing:

Although I'm nervous, I'm extremely excited. A lot of people are coming to watch, and I've practiced a billion times.

Hello lovelies! These past few months, I've been obsessed with everything camouflage. I got a real, vintage camo jacket from the Rose Bowl Swap Meet a while ago, but that's all I can credit to my collection. Here's a few camo-inspired pieces that I'm dying for right now.

What do you think of this trend? Too much? Or are you obsessed like me?

Hello lovelies! With the ever-changing weather here in Southern California, I find myself wanting to curl up by the fire in one moment and go to the beach in the next. As it's a nice day today, I decided to put together a few of my favorite swimwear companies/pieces in an effort to calm my excitement for spring and summer!

Are you excited for swim season?
