Coachella Outfit Inspiration

Coachella Outfit Inspiration
Years ago I attended my first Coachella festival. Let me tell you, the people watching doesn’t get much better. You see everything. My sister is desert bound in a couple of weeks and is on the hunt for some Coachella duds. While festival style isn’t really my thing, I can’t help but look to Kate Bosworth for inspiration. In my opinion, she always gets it right. She carries that effortlessly cool, Southern California vibe so well without going overboard like so many other attendees. My advice? Keep it simple like Kate with a classic pair of sunnies, sandals, and wispy dress to beat the heat.kate-bosworth-768

10 Wardrobe Essentials

10 Wardrobe Essentials


I’ve always admired my cousin Cami’s style. In fact, I requested that any time she buys something new to please send me the details. We’ve had a long-standing history of dressing like twins that we need to uphold [insert awk family photo here]. She’s all about shopping less and buying the best your money can afford. I’m trying to apply this “buy better not more” mantra to my life. Although, who doesn’t love a Forever21 cheap thrill now and again?! In Napa, I asked her what she considers the top 10 wardrobe “essentials” every woman should have in her closet. Cami recommends starting with this simple and classic wardrobe foundation:

1. A great tee-shirt you can dress up or down: T by Alexander Wang: the black muscle tee.
2. Classic gold hoops: Save your pennies and buy a pair that will last. She recommends Bloomingdale’s brand. 
3. Equipment silk blouse: Perfect for the office or tucked into skinny jeans for a chic look (think Miranda Kerr).
4. K. Jacques sandals: A fuss-free shoe staple for warm weather.  Cami has this style.
5. Jeans: Rag & Bone for dark skinny jeans and Mother for a flared profile.
6. Black blazer: Invest in a smart-looking blazer to polish up an outfit. Helmut Lang and Theory are her favorite brands. I just scored this boyfriend blazer on major sale.
7. Sunglasses: Oliver Peoples or classic Ray-Bans.
8. Black tall flat boot: The 5050 Boot; Booties: Rag & Bone Classic Newbury.
9. A fashionable scarf: to complete your look. Zara and Nordstrom brand scarves are great.
10. Grey sweater: Calypso St. Barth and Vince never fail.

[How about one more? Invest in a silk shirt dress…another great piece you can dress up or down. And you’ll wear it a ton.]
