Palm Trees / Palm Springs

Palm Springs is about a 2 hour drive from LA, and even though it’s not too far, I hardly make the effort to build the patience to drive up to it. With it’s beautiful backdrops and palm trees everywhere, it’s hard to resist coming back! Since I was in town for the big festival in Indio, I knew I had to pack Coachella-chic looks and this dress was the perfect fit for it!
How cute is this signage? It was an abandoned building and street- of course some friends and I stopped by for an impromptu shoot! It was only right.
I’m coachella ready! This straw hat came in handy; I pretty much wore it all weekend long.
Saved my face from burning! Total life saver!
These sunglasses always look perfect in sunny environments, don’t they?
I love all the denim colored patchwork of this dress!
The back detailing is sooo cute! Love the triangle shape back!
Dress: Viva Vena! via Nordstrom |  Hat: Trouve via Nordstrom |  Sandals: Marni (similar here) | 
 Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (same color here)
 The weather, palm trees, music, people, parties and fashion was something I was looking forward to and well… I wasn’t disappointed, at all. It was pretty easy to pack for this quick trip- hello straw hats, sandals, cut-offs and denim patchwork dresses! I picked up this Coachella-chic chambray dress the day before I left for the festival and it was probably one of my favorite pieces I took with me- I transitioned it from these Marni sandals to a super-cool look with bright pink sneakers (photos coming soon). 
Love this new lower line by Vena Cava; the pieces look high-end but with inexpensive price tags; love when that happens! The Savvy department at Nordstrom is bringing in fresh brands (like ASTRMural,Viva Vena!) including their own Leith and Tildon lines!
 It’s my go-to shop for cute pieces like this dress!
 I’m partnering up with Nordstrom to do a series of looks- Exciting! Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks for more!
Now I’m off to catch up on some work, and get mentally prepared for a busy week! Share more soon!
