     Although Coachella has to come to an end, if it were up to me I’d still rock a headpiece of flowers and jean shorts for days.  But, sometimes, life calls for something a little more fancy than cut-offs and a vintage t.  So how does this hippie at heart take her Coachella fashion inspirations and translate them to evening chic!?  With two words: Leather and fringe!!!  Check out my Coachella inspired look below!!!  And just an fyi:  Whoever said hippies can’t wear Valentino was seriously mistaken!!!

     I know it started as a music festival, which I know it still is, but for us fashion obsessed people Coachella has turned into one of the biggest fashion events of the country.  Some may even say – gasp!!! – as big as New York Fashion Week!  My favorite thing about the fashion at Coachella- the freedom of expression it brings.  For 2 glorious weekends patrons let their souls dictate their outfit choices instead of the trend reports. The result: A celebration of freedom, fashion, and music!!!  You can’t help but be moved!  Check out my Coachella inspired outfit below!!!

 With peace, love and fashion

     Pre- Miami, I always remember this time of year (fashionably speaking) with a little frustration.  I mean here I would be in the midst of “spring,” everywhere I turned were the hottest must-haves and, unfortunately, I couldn’t touch any of it (cue the tears)!!!  Why? Because early spring in NY doesn’t quite equate too sun dresses and sandals.  In fact, it usually means quite the contrary.  Well, lucky for the girls who are totally relating, this season you can just ignore the weather man (even if he is a total hottie) and rock the latest in spring fashion right now!!! How?? Well, with tights of course! Tights are a great way to transition any look from winter to spring! And no I’m not talking about the plane ones your high school English teacher use to wear. This season tights are as hot as the celebrities who’ve worn them. From Bey’s nude fishnets to Rihanna’s faux guarder belts… tights have become this season’s must-have accessory.  Extra bonus: After the kiddies are sleeping you can totally leave these guys on for a little meeting (or whatever you people like to call it) with your hubby!!  Trust me he’ll love it!!! Check out my favorite tight looks below and remember next time you fall head over heals with a spring look know that you can rock it regardless of what your weather app says!

Pink and blue hair and Chanel (you know I never leave home without it) was my “go-to” for this year’s Ultra Music Festival.  For those of you who aren’t familiar- “Ultra is the premier 3-day electronic music festival boasting the world’s best DJs, unparalleled production, and attended by over 160,000 people representing countries from all over the world.”

Personally, I like to think of it as this generation’s Woodstock- a moment where the world comes together in celebration of music, dance, and love!!!    Although this 35 year-old mommy of 2 only made it to the last day of the 3 day event  and viewed the “main stage” from her cozy table in the Marquee lounge, after checking in on the girls (only 3 times promise) and enjoying a glass of champagne I too managed to totally lose myself in the music and dance the night away!!! Till next year- goodbye Ultra 2014!!!
