Rain, rain go away and Coachella Fever

I adore the rain, but there is something about getting teased with 75+ degree Cali beach weather that makes me crave sunscreen smell and bikinis. To hold me over while I lull at the office longing to bask in the sun (and go into depression about missing Coachella), I decided to post about what I'm most looking forward to in fashion in the upcoming months. Guess this is also a wish list for what could have been an amazing trip to Coachella. Sigh.

I say if you're going to a festival in the coming weeks, pack staple pieces that breathe, sunglasses that actually block the sun and a vintage grunge tee that screams rock n' roll. I ordered the pieces from head-to-toe.
Give your hair some pizazz, with a statement head piece.
I can't help but think Elton John when I see this style on the street. Wish this style of sunnies looked better on me!

Layering jewelry is a must this summer. Try shopping a local flea markets to find something handmade and one-of-a-kind like these crystal hoops.
Cropped tops (especially crocheted ones) and maxis are perfect for the beach, festival or carnival.
Fringe suits. Enough said. I even think it could pass for a bra top.
Graphic Tee
Last year ombre became the "it" hair style, and has now transcended into clothing. I call it, chic Tye-dye (cause let's face it, that's pretty much what it is). I adore this Venus Ombre Fringe Vest from Spanish Moss Those leather shorts are fab too.
Monochromotic styling is definitely a must (though this particular mod look is a little fancy pancy for Coachella). This mint color is totally trending too. Alice and Olivia Mint Cuff Short.
If you aren't wearing some combination of high-waisted, cut-off, studded, dyed jean shorties to a festival, then I don't if you'll be making many friends. I'll actually be creating my own studded, ombre shorts this weekend! More to come on that.
I'm HORRIBLE at painting my nails and it just happens to be one of the biggest trends out there right now. My fav polish strip from Sally Hansen is "Tribal-on It"
Druzy had me at hello. This druzy ring is a steal on Etsty.

Go hippie, or go home. Who knew feet could look so awesome? Snag a Aya Omura Crochet Foot Tie at Free People.
